Boxster License Plates

Many Boxster owners have personalized license plates. Just wondering what some of the better ones are.

I've seen [TOY BOX] being driven around here.

What are some of the better ones you've seen?

Boxster License Plates

My plate is not Boxster specific, but it sshould grant me some leeway and/or professional courtesy when I'm speeding through certain areas of this great land of ours.

The plate reads 3-7-77

For anyone who knows the story behind those numbers and if you're around the Seattle area, I may just buy you a cup of Starbucks favorite and we can trade stories.

So by vocally opposing disorder (i.e. being an advocate of law and order) it's okay to cause disorder (speeding)?

Boxster License Plates

Just remember, where those numbers originated and where I grew up, the daytime limit was "reasonable and proper". This meant that they left you alone as long as you drove professionally and weren't doing anything stupid. And, no, doing a 105mph down the road in the right conditions was not considered stupid.

ZOOOOM.

Not mine, but I saw it driving around in NH. I'm still sportin' the random assemblage of numbers and letters given to me by the nice people at the DMV.

I tried to get BOXSTER but someone already had it so I used a 5 instead of the S, hence BOX5TER

I saw two pretty good plates a while back but neither were on a Boxster. One was a 944 and the other a 928 ( if I remember correctly)

The 944's was "SPIELN" and the 928's was ( honest to God) "PORSCHE"


For those of you that don't speak German, "spielen" is the verb "to play"

Reason for the tag:

Worked very hard off my old debts, bought my first house (only new debt) and started a new business.

This 2004 Boxster is my reward. Its paid for.


IOU ZERO, I have another version of this tag on my Jeep IOUZRO

I think its a little obnoxious, because its on a Porsche. BTW I have received a number of interesting comments about this tag.

It also pisses off my ex, the one that thought I would never amount to anything.
