Old time Porsche owner, new to me Boxster.

Picked up a 2000 2.7 today..... 80k miles. Clean car fax, never hit or painted etc. Speed Yellow. Not my first choice of color but I think it will grow on me. It's a lot of car for $6k.

I've owned Porsche's since for 30 years and this one will sit beside my '04 Lapis Blue GT3 (track duty only....no plates) and my Guards Red '88 Carrera Club Sport.

Got tired of daily driving my 1 ton GMC PU and since my 15 year old just got her permit, I thought this would be a great car to teach her how to drive stick. Once she gets it down, I'll introduce her to autocrossing in the Boxster.

I'm sure I'll be spending some time over here as I fix the small things on the car and look forward to chatting with you.

Welcome, glad to have you join the Boxster world. You'll find this to be a really good forum with lots of great folks that bend over backwards to help. Several are literal experts on these cars. Listen to them and you won't go wrong. Enjoy...

lovely color

Well I for one think it's an absolutely beautiful color. I think it was my Dad's yellow 55 Buick 4 door hardtop that hooked me on yellow cars. I loved that car, learned to drive in it. Not sure how many yellow cars I've had but my first was a 64 yellow 356c. Now I have the 07 speed yellow boxster. It will grow on you. Enjoy...
