Boxster's only car club?

Not sure if this is the correct location to ask this but is there a Boxster's only car Club out there that is not affiliated with PCA? My search has come up with very limited results.

As Tim suggested, this is as close as you're going to find. And the folks here are pretty passionate about the Boxster.

I agree this forum is awesome but I guess what I'm was wondering if there was a actual Boxsters only club with regions where events / meets are organized that just focuses on the Boxster.

No, not that any of us know of (or we would all already belong to it!).

Cool

I think local Boxster clubs with a loose National connection would be a good idea. I have been a member of PCA for 2 years and I feel like a red heade stepchild because I dont drive a 911. The PCA monthly rag never has stories or articles on Boxsters......Are there any Boxster owners in the Metro Atlanta area that are interested in getting together for a casual meeting/ get together?

You should call it Porsche One Club. Since the very first ever built Porsche had: two seats only, no top, boxer engine in the middle and not the rear a.k.a. the 986.

Back when I had a 914, another unloved P-car, we would have our own get togethers organized by a couple of forum members. Sometimes just do a local event like in Atlanta for a cook out and shoot the breeze. Some were long weekend events to destinations with some good driving roads like the Tail of the Dragon. It was quite a site to see 25 - 30 914s of various colors parading down the road.

Must be your local club. The San Diego club has a the full spectrum from 356 to GT4 and everything in-between. No 911 superiority

You are right, I do'nt see very many Boxster articles in Panorama
