New to me '00 Boxster S-cobalt

I'm excited to be a new Porsche owner. I came about it via a circuitous route starting a search for a Miata. Couldn't really find one, but in my search ended up test driving a Boxster and instantly fell in love. Did lots of research and finally settled on my cobalt S. It needs some body work and some suspension work, but overall I'm loving it. I've found a ton of help on this site already and come here looking for answers all the time.

Beautiful color!
(I initially set out to buy one in that color some years ago, but after getting beat out 3 times by people buying them sight unseen from out of state, I found another color I liked just as much.)
But well done on aquiring one!

I agree, that's an awesome color. She should clean up nice. Post pictures when your done with the body work. Looks like you could use some wheel cleaning or updates. I'm not too fond of those turbo twists myself, but others would kill for them.

Best of luck with the car. We also purchased a Miata for my wife and we test drove a Boxster and fell in love with it as well. Its such a great driving machine.

So now you are addicted!!! This is our support group!

I have the same story. was set on a Miata until my wife talked me into test driving a Boxster. Needless to say, the search for a Miata ended at that moment.

Enjoy the car! They are a blast to drive.

Thanks for the kind welcome! I've been tinkering with it lately doing things like spark plugs and filters. The more I drive it, the more I'm realizing how much suspension work needs to be done. My hope is it's just shocks and not the whole system. I've already given it a new clutch and IMS while they had it open. Body work keeps getting pushed until these things are done. Still a blast to drive with the top down and quite the object of affection for all the neighborhood dad's who are stuck with their family haulers. 😊
