New to the forum and Porsche


Just saying hello. I just brought home a 2001 Boxter S with 48,000 mi on it yesterday and my wife had to move her Subaru over and make room. New Porsche ownership but a fan since way back.

Looking forward to digging into all the great info here.

I'm amazed at how many people on this forum (and others) are running a 2001 Boxster S. This was obviously a vintage year!

Congrats on the car! (still no pics, hint hint)

I'm assuming since we haven't seen any response in over a week, that all the reading you've done here has scared you off. Probably ran away and sold your Boxster! (I sure hope not lol)
