Boxster Paint Colour Codes

The Porsche Boxster has always been available in a variety of colours. Some with very confusing names.

In an effort to help potential buyers know what each colour looks like, and to assist Boxster owners in finding their Boxsters colour, I have created this page.

Bellow the colour table, you will also find details of how to find your colour code located in your car.

  SBC - Standard Boxster Colour
 


To find the colour code in any Boxster, there should be a sticker attached under the front luggage cover. This sticker is about 4 inches wide and 3 inches high. It should look like the image bellow.

On this sticker you will notice the number L92U followed by an X1

This is the colour code the car was originally painted in from the factory. L92U is the international standard code (a bit like a reserved number for this Porsche colour) next to it, the X1, is the Porsche internal code for that colour.
