Welcome Gary. There are many Seattle area Boxster owners here. You made a good choice with the Boxster. They are fun to drive. I'd encourage you to check out the Pacific NW Porsche Club at www.pnwr.org. They have many great avenues to really enjoy your car from social events to tours to autocross and track days.

Great!

Glad to see there are some locals on here!

I haven't decided if I'm going to join the Porsche Club, because I'm already a member of three other (Ferrari, Alfa, Fiat) local car clubs that keep me pretty busy.

Welcome Spinnaker, congrats on your car. It is so nice out today. Could be the first topdown day of the year.

I've had my 2001 for a little over a year and absolutely love it. Now you've got to join PNWR. As said before, they have some great activities and people.

I'm in Astoria Oregon

Hey I would be interested in any activities you might have in the PNW. I live in Astoria Oregon for those who don't know I am at the mouth of the Columbia River. I bought a 2008 RS 60 Spyder which is the commerative edition of the 1960 Spyder race car. Great car and cannot wait for the weather to change so I can take her out. See photo attachment below.....................

Hi my first post! wooop wooop ;o)

just bought a 1998 Silver Boxster in great condition and love it already! the payload capacity of both the front and rear has surprised me no end, as has the MPG it is returning! Buying a car seat from Porsche to deactivate the airbag along with the deactivation bar was a bit pricey mind! haha

I'm English but live in Seattle, be great to catch up with any fellow members... how good is the PNWR? is it worth the membership fees?

The names David by the way... ;o)

Hello!

Greetings from the Pacific Northwest! I am a bit north of Seattle situated on Whidbey Island in Oak Harbor. Any fellow Islanders?

Does anyone know of a local place that would do a Pedro Sports exhaust for a good price?

I did that last year, it was a blast. I wrote an article for Spiel as well. Highly recommended!
It was the local Porsche: http://www.pnwr.org/
We are in Blaine...just about as far North as you can get!

We go to Cannon Beach at least once a year, backroads all the way from Bellingham. It's one fun twisty drive! I had serious back surgery this December, so this Summer we are taking off, but next year we already have reservations for mid July (I think!)
You get up to the Great North much?

Hi all. I was did the entire WWSCC slush series this year. I have had my Boxster for a year now and have been lurking around on this site for a while.

Were any of you with that group on the hood canal two weeks ago? I was up there for an event in Quilcene. It was really cool to see a Carrera GT in the wild!

I'm in the South Sound area (Lacey).
