Welcome aboard! Your car looks great.

My '00 S is a similar color combo -- but with black interior. I'm biased, but I think arena red is the best standard color for a Boxster.

I thought mine was Orient Red. Is Arena Red a bright color red?

I love the color no matter what it's called. When I bought mine I looked for an arena red or black, but no red one was available with the options, mileage, condition etc I was looking for. So I "settled" on black. That's a beautiful car.

It's definitely Orient Red. Look up Blinkwatt's car. It's Orient Red as well. It's a pretty rare color, I think. There are a few Arena Red cars on here. Arena Red is darker than Orient.

Orient and Arena Red are tough to distinguish in pics, depending on lighting. On closer inspection, yours is a shade or two brighter than Arena Red. Both are beautiful colors and your car still looks great! Red over Tan is a classic combo that works well on Boxsters.

Nice looking car Lucky317 and congrats!

As mentioned above, Arena Red is darker than Orient.
Carmona is even darker than Arena and Ruby is a step between Orient and Arena.

Here's my Arena Red from a similar angle:

Very nice! That color looks great, I'm kinda wishing I didn't go with Silver on mine now, hahaha.
