  1. Here's a few examples: This is a 2001 Porsche Boxster S 986 Auto MY02 (reasonably) close to me. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2001-porsche-boxster-s-986-auto-my02/SSE-AD-5449756/?Cr=4 170,000kms - $18,000 Then there's this one: 2002 Porsche Boxster S 986 Auto MY02 - 182,700 km - $25,990 https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2002-porsche-boxster-s-986-auto-my02/SSE-AD-6633570/?Cr=10 Similar kms, but has been one owner since new. Is it worth an extra $8,000? Or for similar money, theres this one: 2003 Porsche Boxster 986 Auto MY03 - 54,000kms - $24,000 https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2003-porsche-boxster-986-auto-my03/SSE-AD-6560443/?Cr=8 (Allegedly) In perfect condition. Newer vehicle with much lower kms but also not an 'S' model.
  2. That's a really interesting question. Its likely to be a daily driver, to and from work and weekends. I'm unlikely to do track days, or take up underground illegal street racing etc. I just love the cars (for a long time) and would like to have one. The conundrum is: Do you buy a 'good' cheap base model 986 with high k's and low price (like the black 986 posted above with 200,000kms - less worries about parking it in shopping centers etc,not afraid to add more k's etc, letting family drive it. Or do you pay more for a better spec with much lower k's (50-100,000kms) in the hope that it will hold more value but be more worried about using it as a daily driver? I hope this makes sense.
  3. I messaged him again today and he has already sold the car, just hadn't taken down the ad. He told me it took over a year to sell. He still has the personalised plates (986BXR). He wants $1,000 for the plates.
  4. Was trawling through CS (again) today and came across this beauty: https://carsales.com.au/_/details/SSE-AD-6536175 Owner says: "I will drive and rev to accelerate the car when you inspect, but cannot let you drive sorry." "Please note, the car drives normal for years with an occasionally exhaust-like noise. I spent $2K to have the car inspected for that and Porsche Centre Willoughby said “it’s normal”, and PR Technology (well known and regarded Porsche specialist) said it’s NOT IMS BEARINGS nor TIMING CHAIN. And they both wanted to “inspect further” but I didn’t want to waste more money. I did factor in this listing price reduced of $3K (a lot for that matter) from what the car is worth." "*Because I really love the car, I will NOT sell it to someone I feel not respecting the car, that are those who TALKS DOWN or NEGOTIATE on it, I WON’T sell to you even you change your mind. It can’t be perfect in its 18 years, You can inspect it, but it a Take-It-Or-Leave-It, no negotiation, no talking down." What are these people thinking?? Do they really expect someone to buy a car without driving?
  5. I tried to find information earlier in the week about FlatSix but couldn't find any web/fb presence. Thought they may have gone out of business. But just this morning I was reading another thread and they mentioned that Brett Wentworth from FlatSix wasn't on the web, but certainly was a Porsche Expert!
  6. Sorry to revive an old thread, but this thread saved me from asking the same questions. @Kevvie I'm dying to know if you got the Porsche and how your experience has been over the past 18 months.
  7. Hi guys. I've just joined PFA. Thread has been quiet for a bit. I've seen some interesting deals lately, including a 2005 987 Manual (edit: on the Gold Coast, QLD) that dropped to $22,000 for a quick sale. Then price increased up to $26k-ish and then listed as sold? I like the look of this one in Norman Park, QLD : https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/porsche-boxster-2000/sse-ad-5609721/ Looks clean with some decent service items already done. Thoughts?
