I have a Miami Blue Boxster S on order but wanted opinions on colors...

Lava Orange? - Guards Red ? Or Miami Blue?

Thoughts...

Really down to what you prefer, you can ask the dealership for color swatches to see them for yourself. I prefer Lava Orange but red is nice too. Just not a fan of the blue.

We have a Carmine Red Macan GTS which looks great next to the Jet Black 718S, but after seeing the Lava Orange that "Whatevva" posted I agree, OMG... if we had a different color Macan it would be number one on my list. They have two Lava Orange Porsches at my dealer and they are gorgeous. Hope that helps

Could you possibly post a picture of your Macan GTS ?

Here hare some pictures of my Lava Orange Boxster I have had it since July 16 and can't wait to drive each day. It is so much more fun to drive than my 2014 981 Boxster was. You have a lot of thrilling driving fun to look forward to when you receive your new 718.

Wow--that is stunning!!! I have one on order in GT Silver--but I may have to reconsider and get Lava Orange Ha Ha. Glad to hear the positive review of the 718. The end of April can't get here soon enough.:(

In regards to how beautiful these cars are looking in these stunning colors, anyone taking them to a detailer to get all waxed up and even more glorious?

I have a 2016 Macan and after I did an extremely bad job buffing it and after leaving a lot of halo's, I took it to a detailer and he took them out and applied a new product call Flight Shield Sapphire V1 on the whole car. Now I just hose the car off with a water and dry it, no more waxing and polishing. When I got my 718 Boxster I wanted to do the same to it but the detailer recommended I put XPEL on the front back to the doors and all edges because it sets so low and is a rock magnet. He then coated the whole car with the Sapphire V1. It is so easy to clean now. It was dirty yesterday and it was raining hard when I drove into the garage and when I looked at it today it looked like I had washed it. Check out check Sapphire V1 and XPEL.

I have the XPEL on our Macan, Panamera GTS, and had it on my 911. It is great and I will have it put on the 718 Boxster. I will definitely have to look into the Sapphire V1. I really like the idea of the low maintenance washing and no waxing. Maybe you already said in an earlier post-- but what is the cost of the Sapphire V1?

I got the Sapphire V1 in San Diego for $750 on the 718. I had it and the XPEL done a week after I got the car. If you are going to do any coating or XPEL do it as soon as possible because you want to do it before you get any dings. Unfortunately you cannot buy the product and put it on yourself. There are detailers all over the country licensed to put it on. Go to their web site and you can get more information, it is Sapphire V1 | Sapphire V1 Ceramic Coating. They said the product was first developed for airplanes and later developed a product for cars.

Thanks for the information! I will look for a dealer in my area.
