Where are all the ...............

COBALT BLUE Boxsters????

I have been searching this forum, and all I see are black, yellow, red, silver, gray, and Lapis/Ocean blues. But who has a COBALT BLUE? Pictures, please.

The reason I am asking is that I have a 2007 Boxster S Cobalt Blue on order. The build date will be in March. I chose the color Cobalt Blue based on the color patch they had at the dealership, but have never seen it on an entire car, so I really don't know what it is going to end up looking like.

I am getting cold feet, since noone has one, it may not be a desireable color. I am a little worried, because this is an expensive car (for me, it is a once in a lifetime thing) that I am ready to rush down to the dealership and see if the color can still be changed to something else.

Hey, if you take delivery of your fine cobalt blue boxster before May 14th, drive down to Deals Gap and join us for the boxster run up and down the Tail of the Dragon!

I'd love to see your new car!

What do forum viewers think of the wheels on that car? I want to buy some wheels for my summer tires and I can get a chrome set like on this car for $1400. But I can't decide what I think of them. Sometimes I like them, sometimes I'm not sure.

Thoughts?

Personally, I don't like those rims.

I do like them, but I like them better on the 987. They're a little boxy for the 986 design, I think. The 987 has slightly more angular lines than the 986. For far less than $1,400, you could get a set of Carrera Light replicas, which look stellar on the 986. If you are specifically looking for a chrome rim, Wheel Dynamics offers the Carrera Light in chrome.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Oh, I don't know, DJ. I think chrome wheels on that mile deep blue would be hot.

Randall, I think you have a typo here! I hope you mean May 4th not the 14th. Because I have reservations for the 4-6th.

Soetekouw, Cobal Blue is a great color. In 2005 & 2006 it was a $3,000 paint option.

What color is your leather?

Did you get painted Roll Bars? Painted roll bars with this color looks awesome. Makes the a$$-end look the bomb!

Here ya go:

If I could choose, I would pick the blue color. I have silver which is great but you rarely see blue. You are making a great choice. Good luck.

Thanks

Thanks for the help guys,

You've put my mind at ease.

Bmussati,

The leather is stone grey and the roll bar will be painted.
