How many Boxster do you see a week?

I live in Oklahoma City area and work all around the metro. I drive an average of 600 miles a week and see roughly 10-12 boxsters a week. I've only seen the same one 3 times. And I think it's Retroman lol.

So, how about the rest of you? See many 986's? More 911's?

Very rarely see a Boxster, Cayman or 911 around my area. Makes me feel good. I do see quite a few Cayennes though.

Small town here too

About 60K in North West Alabama, about 6 Boxsters that I see from time to time...but not too common. I actually see more 911's and Carrera's than I do Boxster......even a Carrera GT here in this town.

I saw a 986 drive by the other day as I was standing in the Winn Dixie parking lot. I thought I had identified all the regular ones in town and this one was new. I see the "regular" ones maybe 1-2 times a month.

Depends on if I go into town or not, usually a cayanne or two on the highway. Get near whole foods and such and the 911s and panameras are all over, boxsters and caymans are actually the most rare porsches I see. There is an old air cooled white late 70s 911 i run into.

Other than that, just a few boxsters in the area I run into from time to time, supposedly there is a 22 or so year old with a speed yellow 986, really wanting to have a run in with her sometime.

0. None. I've seen a 996 around, but the last time was a couple years ago. Maybe 2 or 3 Cayennes...

It's nice having the only Porsche around here. She's a real attention whore
(BTW, I'm not in KC...lots of Porsches there)

When I'm in my garage or shop, I'll see six of them.

Running around town, I might see one or two others a week.

I pretty well have the Boxster market in my part of the world.

LOL, criss-crossing central OK, 600-800 miles a week, I wouldn't be surprised if I turned up multiple times.
Yeah, I'd say 8-12 a week of 986 and 987s.
The 981, maybe 2-3.
I do seem to see more 911s than Boxsters. 4-5 a day.
Cayennes are of course all over, and even Panameras are getting more common.
Cayman seems to be the most rare spotting, but will still see 1-3 a week.

I'd be willing to bet that Redboxs is one of the ones I see almost daily.

In Pittsburgh, I saw one two weeks ago. In the winter they are very scarce on the roads. In summer, I see 5 or 6 a week.

I've noticed that there are virtually no 987 cars around here.

Haven't seen another one in months although there is a forum member in my town who uses his as a daily driver. I just haven't come across him yet.

In rural western PA, I have seen one other boxster in the 6 months that i have lived here. It was on a used car sales lot for around $15k. I feel like a freak of nature but at the same time, I want to trade it in for a Lotus. I don't know why, I just really want a Lotus for some reason.
