There's actually a guy that runs Autocross at Maywood with a Boxster that color ( it's a 97 if I remember correctly ).

I really, really like that blue, it's close to the color that was used on early Miatas and Fieros. I've also seen it on the Audi S4.

sputter you made me laugh....

some other tid bits....both cars can be found on ebay

the cayman is listed as mint green

the boxster listing says "There are only 14 Boxsters in the country painted "blau-turquoise". "

I would have guessed sea foam or surf green myself

The blue is alright, but I wouldn't drive it.
The sea foam green needs to be repainted, because it is just plain:

The Cayman looks like something from left over industrial bathroom paint.

If you drove that car you'd have to get a decal for the rear bumper:

"YES it is, and NO I'm not."

Yeah it really does... Looks like the color that all the air compressors in the 70's were painted.
