New member with a new Boxster

Hello from Utah. I recently purchased a 2000 standard Boxster. The wife and I are really enjoying the car so far. This is our fist Porsche and may not be our last if this is any indication of what you can get from a good used Boxster.

I am sure I will have many questions going forward and appreciate the forum, the knowledge and experience shared here.





Mike.

Welcome! You're starting out good by posting pics of the new baby. Love the colour! Read thru the archives, there's lots to learn on here.

You'll enjoy your Boxster. Do a lot of searching through the forum. There are a lot of smart folks here to help you out if you can't find an answer to your question.

Nice ride!

Welcome and yes, before you know it you'll be looking to buy your second and then your third Porsche. They are addictive like that.

Very nice I had a 99 BMW M Roadster that was yellow/black. Not every car can pull off that combo....your can!

I'm sure you'll enjoy the car. I spent a year looking before buying my 2000S back in 2008. I still have it and enjoy it just as much now (with 124K miles) as I did when I bought it. Great cars!
Best of luck with yours.

Beautiful color, really like the amber side markers. Amber on this color Boxster looks very good and appropriate. Seems to be pointing the way.
