    Where did all the new Boxsters go?

    Have not seen any more pictures of all new Boxsters delivered at 1 st of March...

    Re: Where did all the new Boxsters go?

    Delivered on 3rd March, but I guess it qualifies?

    Re: Where did all the new Boxsters go?

    And again

    Re: Where did all the new Boxsters go?

    Happy now?

    You must return this car right away! The sport steering wheel was installed upside down!

    I noticed that just before I took the last picture, so I took it off and refitted it the right way up. Sorry. But I can't do much about it being on the wrong side of the car. Still, nothing's perfect.

    Re: Where did all the new Boxsters go?

    Sooo....it seems like a lot of people are hiding pictures of their cars. It is nothing to be ashamed of that you have cars which have to drive on the wrong side of the road.

    See you Sunday in a Proper English Pub, then.

    Re: Where did all the new Boxsters go?

    You bet!

    Re: Where did all the new Boxsters go?

    By the way, must say thank you! I ordered an arctic 987S but then changed to a black. But after seeing the first pictures of your car I changed again back to arctic. It was in the last minute! I must say that arctic really shows the lines in the car much more than a black. Also it looks more classical and elegant, or much more like a real Porsche to me. So, your pictures saved me from repainting a new car. After seeing the last pictures I am more convinced than ever!

    So therefore I fixed your car so you can come and visit Sweden this summer! But I still have some work to do with the gauges and the PCM.

    Don't worry I will use the digital speed readout. I am pleased that my photographs helped you. I must admit I am very satisfied with my colour choice, especially the Ocean Blue interior and metropole blue roof. Don't forget the coloured wheel centres for that final touch.

    Metropole and Sea blue

    Beautiful car Dreamcar!
    Mine is almost the same combo: Polar grey/ Metropole interior/ Metropole top and it really stands out.
    Since your Boxster is the new one, I thought the blue you'd have on your car is the new blue: Sea blue.
    Couple of new colors came out with the 987/ 997 and Sea blue for the soft top and leather interior is one of them replacing Metropole blue.
    Did you specify Metropole?
    Shame as I wanted to know someone's opinion on how the two differ.
    It seems the Sea blue leather is much flashier than metropole which is very dark.
    Judging from the pic of the inside of your car, I'd thought it was Sea blue because the blue looks very bright!
    Let me know please.
    Cheers!

    Re: Metropole and Sea blue

    Hi Fanch,

    for the softtop you only can order metropol.

    Thanks for your comments. According to all my paperwork and the brochure the interior colour is Ocean blue, which is the "standard" blue leather that replaced metropole blue but the soft top is still metropole blue. Personally I much prefer the new ocean blue, not as dark as metropole blue and has a hint of grey in it. Unfortunately it's one of those colours that appears different in every photograph! Here's another one of the door trim which shows it better.

    Re: Metropole and Sea blue

    Different angle and it appears totally different! The true colour is midway between the two. Not as blue as the 1st, not quite as grey as the 2nd.

    Re: Metropole and Sea blue

    Thanks Dreamcar,
    I think Ocean blue = Sea blue really. Maybe depends on countries.
    Actually, as a side note, when Seal grey came out a few years ago, they could not call it Gris Phoque in France because Phoque is also what you call gay people!!!
    So they called it Gris Kerguelen for the french speaking markets.
    Anyway, back to our blue, thanks for the pics! It is indeed much brighter than Metropole blue.
    The soft top however is still Metropole (thanks KF).
    Cheers for the pics.
    Fanch.
