Buying a 986

Recommended Posts

So I am going to inspect a couple of other cars in the next week or so. Not quite the steal as the first one, who let it go for around $19k 🤬

This could be with an inspection as I don’t quite think the owner knows what he’s selling? Has it advertised as a Boxster 2.7, but it is an S. It has the PSE fitted, relatively low km at 76k. And his selling pitch is lacking to say the least. Issue is hes asking premium price and I have to get it registers in NSW.

This one seems well looked after too

Any comments on these two for and against? Anyone in the ACT area who might inspect the car for me? I’ll gladly pay them a small fee 🙂

at that price you could get a 987 which simply by virtue of being younger is less likely to present issues.

If you could find me a 987 Boxster S for under 27k I’d love to see it. I want the 3.2, 6 speed and of course red brakes 😎

I'd you can stretch the 987 would be a good option. 

Quick carsales search says they start at 34k for a manual S

It does look nice in that colour scheme.  I'm in Canberra. i don't think i'm mechanical enough to discover any problems but i'm happy to go take photos or video. There's also another 986 listed in Canberra on carsales at $17k. it has been listed for a while and is just a 2.5L in black https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-Boxster-1997/SSE-AD-4908826/?Cr=0

I have seen that one, I really do like it with the black/tan. However, I’m not willing to go to the 2.5. It would always be at the back of my mind that there is a 3.2 out there.
