Post your best Boxster Pic

We are looking for a picture of a Boxster we can use on the page banner. If you would like to submit one for consideration please do so. We will then use it as part of the logo with your permission.

Thanks,

JT

My personal ride

Jorge,
This photo may not be worthy of your post's intent, but it is a picture of my 2000 S, taken near Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, last fall while on a mini-vacation. Ocean blue, graphite grey interior w/ deviating carpet and carbon accents, and a Metropol blue top. TechArt aerokit and lowering via H&R sport springs help distinguish it from the usual (?) Boxster S.

John

Question Attaching an image

That is probably because you have not registered. Jorge?

Frank,

That is correct. You can post you can read but in order to post pictures, one must be registered.

Talking Hey Frankster!

Very nice car, although I don't especially care for the wing. So where are you in Germany? I happen to be a native of Munich.

Congrats on the car, truly a beautiful machine you have there.

@mjbliemel

oh no, thats not mine
we don't have those rear bumpers and blades in germany. I live in Frankfurt. So you are a german too? thats nice.

I just ordered a Boxster S. But I'm still not sure which colors to take. But I like sealgrey alot. AS is also beautiful, but here in germany over 50% of all new cars (not only porsche) are silver.

best regards,
frank

Talking AS and SG

Yes, both AS and SG are great colors. Tough decision ahead of you. I did notice a lot of silver cars in Germany on my recent trip there, very popular color there. Keep us posted on which color you end up getting on the new S and congrats on the new Boxster S!

Recently in europe (5 countries) and noticed most sports cars (P-cars, enzos, BMWs, Audi, etc.) seemed to favor Silver/greys, reds, and a lot of blacks.

Of course, I am partial to LB (see above!!!)

hi all.. Well here is a pic of my Boxster. Its not an S however outruns a stock S without hesitation.
if you want to consider my car for the site I can try to provide a better pic, atleast outside of the garage it was taken in.

Beautiful car -- love the front bumper cover!!

Are you considering Litronics and clear side-markers?

What are your tweaks?

In the last year or so I have been fortunate enough to get a partial sponsorship from a local porsche specialist. I get all my work performed by a shop named Porsche Pitsop in Alexandria, VA.

My tweaks are as follows:
Suspension:
Adjustable Bilstein Racing shocks.
H&R springs.
front and rear Sportech Sway Bars.

Engine:
TTP airbox.
Wide Throttle body.
Installed Iridium Spark Plugs(provides for better/faster cylinder firing timing)
Had ECU flashed/reprogrammed by a prosche engineer in Germany. All done from Dyno results of my exact car. So no generic chips or programs.

Exhaust:
TTP custom 2 3/4" Headers (install requires removal of front two Cats and relocations of O2 sensors). Next
TTP custom 2 3/4" matching pipes from headers to rear Cats to provide better airflow.
Replaced factory Cats with a High Flow Cat
Gemballa twin pipe muffler completely polished. (looks and growls fantastic)

Transmission:
B&M Short Shifter.

Body:
Handmade carbon fiber GT2 front nose

The shop I have my partial sponsorship with is hooking me up with a deal from TTP for twin 14 lbs bolt on turbos. Hoping to get that at end of this summer.
And to answer someones question yes I plan on replacing front lights and going with Litronic lights. i already have side markers and new rear taillights( the tinted black and red tailights)

jfmillr,
Sweet ride! Which maker is the front bumper from? I'm considering on which one to replace mine with.

Thanks
