Hello, guys!

I've ordered my Boxster S a couple of days ago. I ordered it with white exterior, yachting blue roof and yachting blue interior (EJ). I really like this combination, probably more than any other available (even comparing it to two tone leather interiors, setting aside their price)

Today I got an e-mail from my dealer that for the 2016 model year this interior will not be available anymore. And they are suggesting that I choose another color... This is a huge disappointment for me and I still don't know what to do.

Do you guys know anything about yachting blue (EJ) not being available anymore for 981 models?

I believe it is almost a deal-breaker for me, and I've already made a first payment in order to put a car in production...

Any thoughts will be appreciated.

I call BS on this; ordered a couple of days ago and already made first payment. One does not go from a couple of days ago ordering to put car into production.

Interesting. I noticed that the "Leather Package in Agate Grey/Pebble Grey" in both the standard interior w/ leather & full leather says "No Longer Available for Ordering as of 09/04/2015" (actually one says 2014, the other says 2015). I also wonder if it's September 4th (US date format) or April 9th (ROW standard)!
I don't see anything noted about Yachting Blue, though... interesting.

I incline to agree with you on BS point, I sense that there might be some mistake on the dealer side. Important remark - it's a dealer in Panama (im not from the US)...

As for putting it to production, I probably did not express myself correctly. I meant that I made the first payment and signed a purchase.

Where did you notice that?

On the S or GTS, pick a pebble/agate interior, then click the (i) button - it's the very last sentence on the description. (On the full leather option (the only pebble option on the GTS), the "No longer available" comment is missing a space/newline before it...)

I can supply a couple. This is 2 days old. I was worried about whether I would really like it. But I do, and it doesn't reflect in the windshield.

obviously iPhone rotation does not agree with this posting system. Sorry.

I can confirm that Yachting Blue will not be available for U.S. orders on the Boxster GTS after July production.
I saw it on my dealer's screen yesterday. Apparently some other colors will be eliminated or changed as well - but didn't see which because I was only focused on the blue. Unfortunately, no information on any new options.
