The emblem on the 2001 I just bought appears to be color matched to the car.

I'm thinking of removing it completely, or painting it black.

Please excuse the dirt, I haven't washed it yet.

I believe the color is called Titanium. I may be wrong. I hear if your Artic Silver Boxster has a black Emblem someone painted it. It didn't come that way from the Factory.

2000 S with Arctic silver with titanium. I'm debating whether to paint black or just leave off.

Lew... I misunderstood your comment. You are correct, and I learned something new.

Thank you.

Porsche confirms the color on my Boxster S Emblem is Titanium Metallic. Now on to my project.

Leave the emblem off and paint those bumperettes to match the silver .

Indeed, then replace the tail lights with something that is not amber, though it looks freaking great as it stands.
