Thumbs up Boxsters go nicely with fall weather

It's fall and it's hibernation time for most Boxsters up here in the Great White North.

Took it out for one last workout, and the day ended up clearing up nicely so I decided to take a few photos during the drive then during its final wash before the cover goes on and it retires to the garage... figured I'd share a few of the photos.

Granted the car is fun in the summer, but if you get a fall day with a bit of warmth the combination is superb. Drove with the top down but I think it photographs better with it's top up (wow, never found a suitable situation in life before where I'd say that top up photographs better).

No hipster filters, no fancy processing software, just the photographic prowess of the mighty BlackBerry!

Beautiful pictures!
Would make me much happier when there wasn't that much snow around the corner. So bloody sick of the last couple of winters.

Great pictures! The amazing part to me though was reading that someone's still using a BlackBerry!

Very nice, it looks like you keep the car waxed nicely too. I hate the thought of winter coming, the older I get the more I dislike them, but it's great when spring rolls around!

Ha, OP is from Canada. I still have a a work issued Q10. It's woefully behind the times in terms of capablities. Our IT department is based in Winnipeg.

Sweet looking Boxster!

You should have good grounds then to ask them to upgrade you to the Porsche Design P'9983 BlackBerry

Excellent pictures, and great eye for posing the car against beautiful backgrounds!

Mine is washed and waxed in prep for winter's slumber, but we're about to see 60s again next week. Very atypical for early November in WI, so I might get it out for a couple days for first-time November drives.

I was going to prep mine for the winter this weekend fellow Torontonian. But I see next week it is going to be 18 to 20 degrees. I think I'm going to keep her out an extra week. Where were you when you took the pics?

I'm curious, what company has their IT dept. in Winnipeg?

PS Put mine away for the winter today.

You'll have to share your picture taking secret. I've tried with my BB Z30 but just can't get it right. Comes out okay, but not near as good as yours.
