I almost always hate the way the hard tops look on the Boxster. But it looks great on your car!! I'm not sure if it is the wheels or what. Something makes it look perfect on yours

Wow! I'm not sure what impresses me more - the photography or the car! There's nothing better than Arctic Silver/Boxster Red, and the hard top gives the car a whole different edge.

Tell me about your wheels and specifically the finish and color - I'm amazed at how unique the finish is.

I get to ABQ every couple of months - I need to look you up my next trip.

Sweet car!

Those photos are indeed very good!

RedTele, if you are in NM on a Saturday, there's a Cars & Coffee meetup in Albuquerque every week and one in Santa Fe once a month. Maybe we'll see you there?

I am there on Saturdays. I usually get in town Friday afternoon and leave Sunday morning. It's just a nice weekend escape for me to get away from Oklahoma. Nothing more fun than getting in one of the Boxsters and going for a weekend drive. I'm thinking strongly of moving to ABQ in a few years once I retire.

I'll PM you prior to my next trip - we'll get together.

Hit up Silver-S and myself. Well prob both be happy to go on a cruise. I know a youngster with a silver base that might be down also.

As for the wheels. They are Roderick RW5 19x8.5/19x11 and the finish is a silver base coat with a candy red. I'm about to have them done in what's called Jolly Rancher Red. That's a super chrome base with a candy red. I also plan to replace the scoops and mirrors with that of a red boxster. I was super syched to get the top. I needed it. My back window was jacked up.

The photo was done by my Samsung Galaxy S6. I had to drop the resolution down severely to post them here. Originals are 5000x3000 and 15mb
