With a few more people showing interest in joining the Boxrod Bandits, a growing movement that is said to be the new "outlaw" (which is so 2016), I thought time for a thread to post up your finds in.

One thing you wont find in here... 57,247 posts about speculation of future values and investment potential. 

What you will find is, bargain Boxsters that will give you all the thrills in the hills you need, for the about the price of doing the brakes and a service on a GT3.

Magnus is catching on...

And Jerry approves...

Too much power, that big block would tie that thing in knots

My fave right now... Almost 400,000km on the clock.  Must be some room in the asking price at $12,900 drive away.

I always wonder why no photos of the inside? 

 

A 2.5 option which makes sure everyone knows what brand of car you have got...

And a bargain with the asking oxymoronic price of "firm $19,000 ONO" ?

$12388 sold, not to bad considering a couple of repairs needed and nice ks!

I think that's a pretty good deal

Well imo there's always gotta be a discount applied considering there's no RWCert, no PPI available, maybe bought unseen and uninspected in any way, no mention of service books or any history, and a couple of repairs needed. All things considered I definately wouldn't pay any more, hope it works out ok for the happy owner and he joins us Boxrod crew!

Thought I'd throw a post in here because why not.

Bought my 97 986 2.5 tiptronic mid last year for only $5000 

Boxster-0177box-1077

Needed quite a few things such as water pump, new canvas top, reupholstered drivers seat,  rear shocks and a bunch of general service stuff. Into it $11000 and its running beautiful with the last 2000km no dramas. Its no perfect car but she drives beautifully

I couldn't praise the 986 more, an extremely under rated car.

I walked out of the office last night and saw a silver 986 parked on the street and it really struck me. They’re really “small” these days compared to everything else on the road which makes it stand out in a way and really have a nice shape, something speedsterish I’d not noticed before. 

Sold myself on finding one on the spot, funny to then stumble onto this thread... ?

Been up a couple of hours ....If it's not on the WOVR or resprayed or re engined etc etc anything wrong with it (or a scam) and his description is accurate, this one is as cheap as it gets for a perfect example. You're in Sydney your wishes have been granted ...JUMP QUICK as in now! if you really want one and save $5k!

Got a soft spot for boxsters but have never really liked the steering wheel, has anyone changed it for something a bit nicer ?

I got mine re-covered (Alcantara was worn out).  So much nicer than original (and original to me :D

That is practically in my backyard, I can look at it for a member if they wanted.

The photos are taken at the park near the old picnic point boat shed so doesnot appear to be a scam either.

Also like this look. Needs airbag system fooled to stop the warning light (can buy a resistor kit off ebay)

Momo on a Boxster... does that work (in looks that is) ?

I cringe saying this...but to me, that one is not ....period correct!  It belongs in an old aircooled car.  Ugghhhhhh!  Did I say that out loud? What am i talking about!  Boxrods should be about doing what ever you want....

I went with a Momo Mod 07, which given the interior is pretty much same as 996 GT3, and it being the basis of the Porsche Motorsport wheel for the GT3, then I say it works.

That is a ripper!  I wanted that colour combo when I were looking... It was the hero colour used in the launch and all the PR material.  Couldn't find one...

Could you please go check it out for this guy on the forum, he goes by the name edgy?

He would have a ball cutting laps in this seeing how close he can get to his GT3 times, then shooting off to the butchers to buy the finest meats with his savings!

Bargain, despite not being in the market, I'm tempted to offer $10k sight unseen and then decide what to do with it.  What else can you buy for $10k that's immaculate 90,000km and right colour combo. Throw some suspension, wheels (17" Speedline look? https://goo.gl/images/oEtPtGto imitate the original concept https://goo.gl/images/7SFQgB) and a Trev Momo steering wheel at it and it'd be cheap fun.  Somebody buy it before I do! Probably not much more than my next service on the GT4!
