Why isn't there a Silver Boxster thread??

Just curious as there seems to be threads for the other colors.

Arctic silver on black here in Japan.

Those of us who have Arctic Silver know and appreciate this iconic color (same color as the iconic 550, rs60 / 61, rsk) and don't feel the need to boast about this heritage (lol)

this is a race car only, im racing with PCA

i had a 996 front end in stock and not a 986 at the time i built this car, that's why

headlights are plug and play, sometimes you have to play with the pins inside if you have regular hl and you want to put xenon hl

Just detailed the car and added a couple things. New colored crest center caps, depo tails and de-badged. I put the PORSCHE lettering on the back afterwards but still not 100% sure on placement.

One of the cool things about this thread (besides all the silver Boxsters) is to see what all the different rims look like on a silver Boxster. I still like the 5 spoke wheels the best and, hopefully, will one day find an affordable set for my '99.

Agreed. I can't help but feel the stock 17's look dated. The simple addition of newer 5-spokes or (my favorite) the lobster forks completely change the look of the car, like a facelift.
