New England Boxster TechFest 2006

By Wan Chi Lau

We met the wonderful folks at Bentley Publishers last year at a Porsche talk at the Auto Museum in Brookline MA.

They mentioned they would be publishing a Boxster Service Manual in Nov 2005. 

We got a copy in December for review and thought it would be great to get some New England Boxster owners together for a little Tech Session. 

We got to talking with the folks at Bentley Publishers and they have graciously agreed to sponsor and host the event!

It would give folks a chance to check out the Boxster Service Manual, meet some of the great people at Bentley Publishers, and to put some faces to some of the online "handles" on the PPBB!

We hope you can join us.  The event is FREE, but space is limited and pre-registration is required.  You can sign up for the event by sending email to us here.
