Macadamia metallic?

What do you guys think of this color? It kind of makes me hungry for some chocolate.

That's a great color. Looks great in the Boxster, Carrera and Carrera Turbo. The Sand Beige leather looks very nice with it as does the Cocoa Leather and Cocoa Top. It has lots of metal flake.

I saw a 987S in this colour with the tan sports seats and 997 turbo wheels at the dealership. It is a sharp looking car.

Sounds like a fancy name for brown. I'm not a big fan of brown.

It wouldn't be my first choice. But it does look great!

I was looking at that boxster at Euroclassics earlier this week, great color. But I perfer the lighter colors for detailing and keeping the cars looking clean. The sales folks were also quite excited about the lime green car in the showroom, it must be an acquired taste.

BTW, any folks in the Richmond area doing the autocross this Saturday? Euroclassics is helping to organize the event. I have not done an autocross before, but think I will give it a try this weekend. Both the 160.00 entry fee and the thought of watching my PS2's melt away before my eyes has kept me away in the past, but its time.....

Yep, I am a Cary-ite. Beats Detroit winters by a long shot.

I think the brown looks great, especially with the tan interior and cocoa top, but it's not for me. If you were a UPS executive though, it would be sweet!

I hear what edevlin is saying about keeping a dark car detailed. I love boxsters in black, but keeping it looking good makes me very afraid...

I love the Guards red and tan combo, maybe its my closet love for 80's Ferrari's coming out.

I'm not a big fan. I'd like it better if it was more like a burgundy color.

Definitely unique. Haven't seen too many boxsters with that color.... but, I still prefer BLACK!

Saw a Cayman in this color while I was golfing in CA. I liked it.

The Cayman's almost low enough to drive under Big Foot.
