Asked my three girls. They all say it looks like a boy's car, not a girl's car. Not sure this helps.

Don't see it mentioned, but we ordered our alocation with black top and dark gray interior. In our area, the red top wouldn't go over well unless its at the Fire Island Ferry!

I don't think it's gay...but I don't think it's the most masculine color combo for that car either though.

I too am not sold on the red top, but the red interior looks cool!

As for the "hairdresser on fire" stigma of the Boxster.... man, when is that thing gonna die?

Are the 911 folks so insecure?

When you are cooking down a back road, with the top down, the intake roaring in your left ear... does it get any better in any P-car? Seriously.

I have an RS and love driving the Boxster. Thought about a 911 Cab and opted for the Boxster for the fun factor.

There you go!

The RS (and to a lesser extent any coupe) will obviously be the better track car, but when you are looking for on the road fun, can you beat the Box?

I remember gassing up after a DE alongside an instructor. I had my wife in the front seat and the top down, and he said to me. "ah, that is something I won't have in my GT3, a great ride home."

I am sure that there was some gracious complementary points in there, but let me tell ya, it was a great drive home. Almost as good as the DE itself.

...come to think of it.... maybe he was talking about my wife....

It's not gay but I'm not at all a fan of the wheels...they're pretty weak/wimpy. Swap those out for something more aggressive looking and I'd be diggin' the car. And FWIW, I like women...a lot!

The only other gripes I have about the RS60 is that they didn't give it a greater hp bump (should be 315 or better) and drop weight (needs to lose at least 150+ lbs somewhere). Even if they didn't add the hp, they should've figured out how to drop the weight.

Please post a pic of you and the car. My wife said she would give an honest opinion of the orientation preference represented by the vehicle and yourself. As for me the car is right on. I dont care for the red top but if you like it who gives a flying you know what what other people think. You can always change it or put on a hard top when you dont want the top down. I love the grays and silver body colors and the red interior is spot on in my opinion. In fact i dont think I could stand a car without the red interior now. It really grows on you. Beautiful ride. I would bet the red top may be like the red interior, it may grow on you and me as as well.

I think red top is better looking down than the black since it matches the interior.
