Hello fellow Boxster’ers

First and foremost a big “Thank you” to this forum and its members. We’ve been on the lookout for a Boxster S for about 2 months and have used this resource to answer many questions related to the car. I wish I could thank the previous owners for the care they have taken of this vehicle. Not one of our friends of family members can guess the age of the car. They guess 2004-2006. It’s almost 14 years old! What bang for the buck!! I’m absolutely in love with the balance of this car. Purchased in Portland, Or. from Ron Tonkin Grand Turismo. I’ve got to recommend this dealership and their people. Greg at RTGT was the most down to earth sales associate I’ve ever met at a dealership. What a great experience! Now, just need a second set of wheels and it’ll be track time at Thunderhill Raceway. (We live 8 miles from the track) I don’t know if I’m more excited for my wife to learn to drive around the track or myself. Here are a few photos. I'll add more later.
2000 Boxster S 6 Speed

Great looking car Kyle!

I frequent T-hill many times a year. Cool that you live so close to it. The Box will be an awesome track car.

Beautiful Car!! I like the color combination, you can never go wrong with Silver on a Porsche. The Litronics and Hardtop finish it off nicely.

You likely already know this but; If you decide to regularly track it, two things you may want to consider addressing, brake pads (track oriented) and ROW suspension.

Great group of guys here who will willingly help you out......
