    Changes on 07 Boxster S

    Is anyone aware of changes in 07 other than the 3.4 mill? Colors? Options? Specs? Price? I just ordered one and have a hard time finding out a lot about the 2007.

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    I hear Cobalt Blue becomes a reg metallic color and Lapis becomes the special color. Read it elsewhere so take it with a grain of salt.

    Of course, TPMS becomes std. $55,500 is what I see around ... I'm on the same boat: getting an 07 987S blue or meteor gray (or is it space gray? i confuse it with an e92 {BMW})

    Confirmed by my Porsche dealer when I called in for a coffee and a chat the other day. It has been mentioned here that seal grey is being replaced by meteor grey, but I cannot confirm that. There is also a modification for access to oil / water filling in the rear boot by a separate flap, but not sure what the arrangement is. The other new option is the availability of the 997 turbo forged aluminium wheels. Don't know the price but I am sure they won't be cheap.

    For the fly it's a once in a lifetime experience, some P-customers manage to survive the first encounter and return voluntarily

    This fly is normally safe, as I usually visit with Mrs Fly, a match for any spider, one sight normally sends them scuttling for cover as fast as all eight legs can carry them.

    LoL we're way OT - what has all the spider talk to do with the Changes on 07 Boxster S

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    If the Cayman configurator is anything to go by, it looks like there's new 17" Boxster II wheels, PSE is available and Meteor replaces Seal.

    The 17" Boxster II wheels look the same to me. Strange though, PSE is only available with tiptronic

    I've got no idea.

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    Cayman wheels will be available on the 987 for about Pounds200 premium over the std 18s

    seal grey dropped in a favour of meteor grey (slightly darker)

    Wonder if they'll put the power socket back in the footwell ?

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    If you look at the web special on Porsche's website, you'll notice that in the picture of the front trunk it looks like they made a LOT more room up there. Can't tell if it's just a graphic or what though. It looks like they got rid of the boxed area where the CD changer and DVD player normally go. Perhaps they relocated things?

    I heard somewhere else that TPMS is becoming standard in '07, but I have no idea if that's true.

    I found a similar picture whilst flicking through the old 987S brochure (MY05/06). I just figured certain LHD markets don't get all the boxing in for the CD changer etc

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    Oh. Hmm...well that's odd.

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    Ordered 07 987S. Dealer has told me that TPMS is standard.

    Based on my reading, US Government Regulations are requiring TPMS on most new 07 cars and all 08 cars

    If you do NOT Order PCM-navigation and/or CD changer you will not get the black boxes so the front trunk looks bigger then.

    maybe so in Gemrany but all cars in the UK are boxed in, even those without any form of audio upgrade

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    Yep, same here.

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    Thanks for the info. I can't wait to get my ride. November!!!

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    What options/color did you order? Ordering an 07 987S as well; from Carlsen.

    Was set on Lapis Blue but they had to switch price tags with cobalt blue! Not too thrilled with that color. Might have to switch to Atlas Gray. With my luck they'll not offer that color :-(

    Porsche have probably done you a favour. Lapis blue is an extremely soft paint compared to the other colours and as a consquence marks very easily. The used car buyer at my OPC told me he always marks down buy-in price for lapis cars as he knows that remedial work is almost always required to paintwork. Want a dark blue then go for midnight. Another tip from the same source, never go for the grey soft top. Becomes disfigured and unsightly very quickly.

    Re: Changes on 07 Boxster S

    My 99 is Lapis, and the only paint problems are not the fault of the paint, but either other cars rear-ending me or really nasty water dripping down in the garage in my office.

    That being said, my new 07 is ordered (and built) in Midnight for a change. The Lapis has some really pretty purple shading in bright sunlight and after 7 years it's time for a change.

    Re: Cobalt Blue

    dreamcar: thanks for the tip!

    My dealer also mentioned that the black top is the most durable.

    I may just go with Cobalt with Metropol top. Need to see it in person though. Will stick to traditional (boring?) black interior

    I'd think about ocean (sea?) blue with cobalt, with maybe some aluminium highlights such as the roll bars and centre console to contrast with the all blue theme.

    I went Atlas with Black, power heated seats, small carbon, sport chrono and shifter, bose, sport wheel (thin) and I am trying to get the new turbo wheels on the car.

    i think they did that already, not sure, it was a recall they had or something.

    Still debating between Cobalt Blue & Atlas Gray, will get Preferred Package (PPA), Bi-Xenon, Sports Seats (P77) and Sport wheel also (435).

    I'm also thinking of getting the 19" Carrera S wheels
