Just bought a 2001 Boxster S

Greetings! I am the proud of owner of a very nice 2001 Porsche Boxster S. I had been looking for several months gathering info etc. When I had a few in mind I put my 1983 Alfa Romeo Spider up for sale and sold it in 12 hours . I found an S model with 67K on it with a sparse maintenance history but visited several Porsche shops in my area and found that maintenance was performed just not recorded. Everything absolutely works correct and has new tires. Only issue I have is the front bumper cover has a crack underneath and I'll be getting that fixed pretty soon. I have always had a 2 seater in the garage. Hope to gather useful info in this forum and provide any I can.

Very nice. It appears to have some nice (& expensive) options; Rain Forest Green Metallic paint $805, Litronic Headlights $1,070, and Leather Interior $2,920 to $3,950 depending on which one was ordered. Post some interior photos! There is a tag under the front hood that has all of the option codes listed.

Welcome and great first post.

Looks to be in great shape, inside and out for a nearly 15 year old car. Congratulations.

She looks great congrats! Love the metallic colors, they shine up so nice and look great when they are sparkling in the sunlight.

I really like the Rain Forest Green & Savannah combination. Very classy.
Much richer looking than the typical Arctic Silver.
Get out and drive that thing!

Beautiful car. I am a recent 2001 S model owner as well.

I really love that color combo as I had the same on my 91 Alfa.

Great colours you have there plus some updated front headlights which IMO is a bonus.

Enjoy the forum, lots to be learnt here !

You've got the Packers color package! Congrats. I also have a Rainforest Green 01S, but with the gray interior. I've had it since May 2012 and have racked up 23K miles in Summer-only driving. You will love exploring the twisties in AZ.

Here's mine driving Tail of the Dragon this past July.

Thanks for the welcome from everyone. There's a nice winding road down here in Southern AZ I'll be driving real soon. Hope to get some video.
Oh! I didn't show it in the pictures but the top is almost in new condition with a clear rear window! It is Black. I'm thinking a Tan one would look better. Don't put it up very often.

Same paint color as my 2001 base with gray interior. My bumper was messed up too and I replaced it with an S bumper just for the looks. My gray top should be replaced and I have a seal gray hardtop which I'm so far not painting as it looks great as is. Getting my winter tires on this weekend.

Hmm maybe that's why I've never been a fan of green cars. And I guess that means my boxster is bears blue. Go bears!
