Yup. Boxster Red.

Arctic Silver and Boxster Red - the best color combo made for a Boxster!

Mine is black on boxster red......love the combo. It is really more of a terra cotta color than red. Looks equally awesome with arctic silver!

I have the same color combo, Arctic Silver and Boxster Red. If you get it in a 911, its still Boxster red. I agree, its more of a terra cotta and yes my carpeting looks more like Boxster pink. But I still like the color combo, I bet it looks nice with black exterior also. Perhaps someone here will post some pics. I like the combo, reminds me of old school sports cars from the 50's. I also have factory speedster humps, more old school look.

mine's the same.. silver/red. Love that combo. Too bad the only thing remaining is the dash.

I wonder if dye would ruin the FiA rating of race seats... lol .

I always liked this color combo, this is the color combo of the boxster concept from the early 90s and also a color combo that dates way back with Porsche, pre 911 way back!

Here's one pic of mine. I will get some better interior pics to put up too. I agree about the carpet being a bit "boxster pink". I wanted to order "deviating carpet" color of black which looks absolutely amazing but for whatever reason it was not an available option for "state-bound" Boxsters in 2001. You could get deviating carpet for Euro-delivery cars but not North America delivery cars......go figure!

I have an Artic Silver with the Terracotta all-leather (didn't realize others call it Boxster Red - it doesn't seem very red-ish). Though mine has the black carpet on the floor/doors which I think is a perfect combo without overdoing the terracotta. I wasn't even looking for it but found a great car for sale that happened to have it. Drove 300 miles to Dallas to look at it in person without even knowing if I would like it!

mikesz....my Boxster is a 2001 S. patssle....you have the "deviating" carpet option that was available for model year 2000 cars but for unexplainable reasons, was not available for 2001 cars coming to the U.S.. As you said, the black carpeting really sets off the "boxster red" leather! I wish that I could have gotten it when I ordered my car in 2001
