White Boxsters, Where are they ????

Is it just my imagination or are white Boxsters a rare occurrence ? I have only seen maybe 2 or 3 on this forum, excluding mine of course. I really wanted a black one when I was looking but the white with black top has really grown on me. Now I am quite happy with it.

I've seen several Boxsters around here. Green most. Never white. One speed yellow and one nasty light yellow.

They do seem to be rare. Blue, black, and silver seem to be the most common colors around here. One of the most attractive color combos I've seen on a Boxster (any generation) is White with Tan interior. Just a beautifully clean understated look.

A few weeks ago I saw a white one with a Zeintop. He was too far ahead in traffic and I couldn`t get a pic.

White is the new silver. Lots of modern white Porsches around here.

White with tan interior here. I agree a real beautiful combo. And I have never seen a white boxster on the road, besides mine. There is a yellow one here in town i see every now and then.

I suspect they are getting repainted when the 1990s paint fades to yellow

I've bought/sold two 98 White/grey Boxsters. Good looking cars! White/tan is a favorite combination for me.

IMHO, white is a great body color for Boxsters. And for almost any sport car, for that matter.

But with so many posts from white Boxster owners...........why no pics?

Just wonderin'............
