First post! My 2004 Boxster

Some of you may have seen these pictures on other forums For the past couple of years I have been preoccupied doing something else (changed my career) so the Porsche got a little neglected. It would only come out on weekends, the rest of the time I drove my boring 4 door sedan.

Anyway, here are some pictures.


Storm brewing in the West Australian coastal town of Albany


Porsche on the beach in Esperance, W. Aust


My better half walking back to our car


Coastal drive.

The car is completely standard, apart from a very killer stereo which has won a number of competitions.

Thanks guys Oh yes Australia is stunning:


"Christmas flower" with Frenchman's Peak in the background, Cape Le Grand National Park, Esperance, W. Australia


Wind generator farm, Esperance, W. Australia


Great Australian Bight, South Australia

... as for the car i'm planning to do a couple of very simple mods (LED tail-lights, new alloys) and that's it. It's fast enough for me now that i'm approaching my middle age

Awesome car. I love the rear diffusers.

Australia is a wonderful place. I spent part of my honeymoon there 15 years ago.

Aw, thanks guys

Bambino, change of profession was from being an MD to share and property investing. Photography is a hobby for me.

I was wondering how many other Aussie Boxster owners hang out on this site ... particularly those in Melbourne.

Nice car and pictures too! How about some shots and more info on that killer stereo. I'm always fascinated about how one can fit a nice system in a car so limited in space. (especially if you put in subwoofers?) Please do share some more

Boxs2000, I haven't gotten around to taking shots of the killer stereo. But really there is not much to see - the whole purpose of my install was to stealth everything. The ONLY visible indicator that there's something lurking beneath is the aftermarket head unit. The speakers are installed in the factory locations, but carefully angled. The amps are in a false floor in the front boot. Sound deadening is installed in the doors. And there is no sub, though I have been pondering getting one installed for quite a while. My music does not really need a sub.

Those are some really nice pictures. I'm blown away how clear they are. Do you mind me asking what camera you are using?

Sure, those were taken with a Canon 20D, with either a 24-70/2.8L or 50/1.4 lens. I have since upgraded to a 5D

Great looking car and love those photos. I used to do a little 35 mm photography 30 years ago with my trusty Olympus OM1. I have just recently started to play with a digital photography using an Olympus E1 SLR (People ). Its fun, but I am still low on the learning curve.
