Default I'm back in a Porsche! New to me Boxster.

Super excited to be back in a Porsche. Had a 944 (now a family spec car) and a '99 911. Now back with a Boxster. Really liking it so far. Quick picture on a foggy morning. I look forward to being a part of the community again.

Do you have a to-do list?

Enjoy in good health.

Thanks guys. Really enjoying the car so far. Have always liked these wheels, so it was a bonus that it came with them. Not planning to go too crazy with mods just yet. I wouldn’t mind lowering it a little and maybe doing some spacers to bring the wheels out a tad. I’ll have to do some reading up on exhaust mods. Can you do a Fister type muffler mod on these? I had that on my 911 and loved the sound. Also saw something about the “desnorkle” mod. Good one to do? I really just can’t wait for some decent weather to do some top down driving!

Congrats & welcome back!

Check out our 986 product line below. My favorite set-up on the 986 is our Sport Cats, Maxflo Exhaust & ECU Tune - really wakes the cars up and give them a deep & throaty tone.

Looking forward to your plans and journey with your new boxster. I've had an 993 and now an early Aston Vantage. While the Vantage oozes class, and everyone LOVES it, it doesn't quite get me going in the driving excitement department. So I drove an early Boxster the other day and found what has been missing. The immediacy, lightness, and overall balance that a Porsche has is hard to replicate in the Aston. I'm now thinking of upgrading to an early Boxster and am excited to follow your journey. Please keep us updated!

The Aston Martin Vantage (and all Astons, really) have always been some of my favorite cars. I am really enjoying the Boxster. While not too fast, it still puts a huge smile on my face each time I drive it.

Winner, winner chicken dinner.

A Box is a super cheap smile maker. No reason to hem-haw around if funds allow.

Thumbs up

Congratulation on your '99. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine. I am the original owner of one that now has over 100k. My daily driver until 2 weeks ago when I got a 718 Cayman S. Couldn't bear to part with the Arctic Silver/Boxster Red gem. It is feeling a little neglected now.
