    2006 Boxster S - Carrara White/Cocoa/Cocoa

    After four months of waiting, my 987S finally arrived in Anchorage, Alaska. It looks even better than I expected. All those months of wondering whether the paint, leather, and wood I selected from tiny chips and samples at the dealer would actually work together paid off completely when I opened the door and saw it all together in the flesh. It was hard not to jump up and down like a little kid! This is my fifth Porsche, but the first I have ever special ordered. I am truly pleased and hope you will enjoy the photos and specs of my new car.

    Here you can see the door sills and some of the sycamore wood with the cocoa leather. I'm really impressed with the stitching of the leather on the doors and dash.

    Porsche crests in the cocoa leather headrests.

    The sycamore multifucntion wheel is awesome. It is solid hardwood and feels like the wheel of a classic roadster. It has ridges on the back of the wheel to keep your hands from slipping. The controls are easy to use, including making phone calls and stereo navigation. You don't have to use the small PCM buttons. It can all be done right from the wheel.

    The only mods so far include switching over to Cayman S 18" wheels and clear side markers. I liked the more aggressive look of the Cayman S wheels over the Boxster S wheels. I stuck with 18" because of our crappy Alaskan roads.

    Nice! Hope you enjoy. 18's are fine!

    Re: 2006 Boxster S - Carrara White/Cocoa/Cocoa

    White suits the 987. Grats to your new baby! I also like the Cayman wheels, that's a good choice.

    Not so much the cocoa/wood fan myself but it's good to see different options from time to time.

    Re: 2006 Boxster S - Carrara White/Cocoa/Cocoa

    Wow, I am a fan of wood in interiors and I think your combination is stunning!

    Re: 2006 Boxster S - Carrara White/Cocoa/Cocoa

    very elegant combination. Classy!

    Re: 2006 Boxster S - Carrara White/Cocoa/Cocoa

    Thanks to all for taking the time to look at my recent photos and comment on my new ride. We drove up to Denali National Park over the long 4th of July weekend. It was an awesome scenic drive and especially memorable in the new Boxster. Only 500 miles left on break-in period. It's been tough not to open it up and drive it like I stole it!

    BTW, it seems I'm getting some grief for my choice of the sycamore wood. Frankly, I have the same reaction when I see carbon fiber on anything and never understood the attraction. Different strokes...

    I'm glad that Porsche allows us to build our own little version of perfection.

    Re: 2006 Boxster S - Carrara White/Cocoa/Cocoa

    i love the cocoa interior!
