    Boxster Spyder

    I recently picked up a Boxster Spyder - this is actually my second Spyder.  I ordered the first one after seeing the beautiful press release of the car and was one of the first cars in my country.  I traded that for a 997.2 GT3 CS as I wanted more power for track use.  More than a year later, I picked up a second Spyder - this time specced with many more options.  Below is the option list and a few photos as promised to Ferdie.  I know the Spyder is not to everyone's taste, but to those who like them, hope you enjoy the pictures.

    Options (in Australia the Spyder also comes standard with climate countrol, PCM 3.0 and parking sensors):

    • Metallic paint (basalt black)
    • Leather Interior in Special Colour (cocoa)
    • Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake
    • Sports Chrono package Plus
    • Interior package Alcantara Boxster Spyder
    • Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights
    • Wheels painted in Black
    • Sports Exhaust System
    • Porsche crest embossed on head restraints
    • Windscreen frame trim leather
    • Interior Package A-pillar leather
    • Sun visors in leather
    • Lid of storage bin with Porsche crest
    • Gear lever trim leather
    • Tyre Pressure Monitoring system
    • Lithium battery

    Very interesting colour combination! Enjoy the new car.

    What is the climate like in Melbourne? Can you keep the car open for long periods of time during the summer at least?

    I presume, in your case,  at night it will always be securely garaged.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: Boxster Spyder

    Love it, you have a great taste man.. But you forgot to remove all the stickers. ;-) I know many love those side stickers, but I don't really understand why?!

    Re: Boxster Spyder

    Bad Ass! Nicely done WAY! That one is a keeper.

    Re: Boxster Spyder

    Thank you all for your kind words, I can't be happier on how the car looks!  However, I can't take the credit for how well this has turn out, for it is my friend who did the original spec, with little (if at all!) input from me.  My friend is very good with these things with his attention to details and his ability to visualise how things would look.  So P, if you are ever reading this forum, thanks bud!

    @Reginos, Melbourne weather is almost perfect for this car, except it is proably a tad cold in winter.  In winter (daytime), worst case it is typically around 10 degrees celcius, but more often than not it is around 14-15 degrees.  In the last couple of weeks which marks the end of winter, it has been quite sunny and about 18 degrees or so.  It is no Florida, but it's more than ok weather wise for a Spyder.  And yes, I have a garage for this car.

    @RC, spec wise I would say it is probably an overkill for a Boxster if I am being honest, but it also helps make it feel like a more premium car when you see it and when sitting in it.  Can't complaint.

    @Rossi, I couldn't have pictured how well black and cocoa could go together, but it looks great.  The way the car looks, it is like a modern intepretation of a retro theme.

    @Ferdie, thanks for the kind words and you are welcome for the pics!  It was actually good that you asked for it, because otherwise I would never move my bottom to go take some pics.  Sometimes I trade a car, then realise that I don't really have any pics of it which is a real shame when it is a nice looking car!

    @BlackOctober, yes that is Russian word PRAVDA.  I am not Russian nor am I linked to Russia in anyway.  But I like the meaning of the word.

    @Avoe, I don't like stickers on some models, such as the GT3RS, however I feel that the Spyder without the stickers make it look a bit middle heavy, a bit bloated if you like.  Obviously these things are always a personal preference and there is no right or wrong.


    Re: Boxster Spyder

     That looks astonishing! The interior especially. I thought though that cocoa interior was cut in favor for Espresso recently. How did you get it?


    Re: Boxster Spyder

    I don't know Carrara. Perhaps it was one of the last Cocoa interiors or they had left overs lol.  I have not seen Espresso in real life.  Is it darker or lighter than cocoa?


    Re: Boxster Spyder

     Looks fantastic, great job!!!

     Espresso is lighter, more purple, and has a lot less colour. Personally I think Espresso is ugly. Cocoa is drop dead gorgeous though!


    Re: Boxster Spyder

     Beautiful Wayne, love the interior!  Were you tempted by PDK? 


    Re: Boxster Spyder

    Carrara:

     It's actually the other way around. Espresso is darker and Cocoa has a bit of purple in it as the pictures show. The 991 will have Espresso and so did the 997 Sport Classic.

    I like both by the way.

    I have Espresse in my Cayenne (that I picked up yesterday) and there was a 997 Turbo in Cocoa so I could compare them in the same light.

    Re: Boxster Spyder

    Absolutely fantastic car and spec, many many congratulations. I agree absolutely, the additional leather makes the world of difference to the upmarket ambience of the interior. Black /cocoa is a wonerful combination. Smiley
