2001 Porsche Boxster "S"

2001 Porsche Boxster “S” 

I am a HUGE fan of the Porsche Boxster; It’s simply a car that Porsche got nearly perfect right out of the box. When they introduced the Boxster in 1997 I was simply enthralled with the shape, the handling, the sound, the complete package!

Like many enthusiasts I did wish for a little more power… Porsche answered that call in 2000 with the Boxster “S” upping the HP to 250hp, adding a 6-speed manual and making various improvements to the suspension and brakes. All told I thought they hit the perfect balance with the 986 “S”! 

All that to say I have always been smitten with these cars and 16 years of time has not diminished that. The best part is that now these cars are trading for Hyundai Elantra money (seems hard to believe). Now of course the bad part is that most of these cars have suffered too many indignities and abusive owners to ever grace my showroom. So the key is to find the right example that has been loved and cared for AND has all the right updates and service.

This car IS that example!  Here is how the car is optioned: 

  • Polar Silver Metallic (MUCH more rare than Arctic silver which was the standard $710 Silver choice vs. Polar which was $3,010!)
  • Sport Package- wind stop, sound system upgrade with CD Player, cruise control- $1,560
  • Headlight Washers- $225
  • CD Shelf- $40
  • Litronic Headlights- $1,070
  • Floor Mats in Black- $92

 Original MSRP-$56,962 

The best part of this car is that the current owner wanted to make sure the car was mechanically perfect for the next owner so he took the car to Chris’ German (www.chrisgerman.com) a very well regarded independent Porsche service shop and requested they update all the known 986/996 issues. Here is what he just had done $5,100! 

  • New LN Engineering IMS Bearing
  • Oil and Filter Change
  • New Waterpump, thermostat, new coolant, new belt
  • New oil fill tube
  • Replaced all 4 CV joints boots and repacked

 The car is 100% ready to go, it runs and drives like a new Boxster and everything works as designed. You wont find another one in this price range so well cared for, with no needs and all the updates done.  Aesthetically the car is VERY nice, other than some minor patina on the front bumper cover, the car is free of the typical wear so common on these. The interior is likewise immaculate. This is a car you would be proud to own, equally at home at a PCA car show as carving up some remote 2-lane.  

The Carfax is of course clean and it comes with a complete service history showing fastidious care. The following items are included: 

  • Original window stickerComplete service historyOriginal books and manuals2 original keys
  • Porsche Certificate of Authenticity

I am thrilled to offer this amazing car to someone! How could you possibly have more fun for under $15k? Move quick!
