This looks like a well priced Boxster S, under 100k...  in Tassie though

 

https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2000-Porsche-Boxster-S-986-Auto-MY00/SSE-AD-6013652

Been for sale for a couple of months I think.  Not a car i've ever seen though.

Mint Silver 987 Tip with  100kms in Tassie also for sale.  https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/shearwater/cars-vans-utes/porsche-boxster-987/1213754516

Great car, owner wants to buy my 996 so I'm happy to give him a plug 🙂

This one just popped up in my saved searches.  Nice HB2 photos too.

Those of us in Victoria all know this car so what's the story?  Something new on the way?

Hah yes that's my car, I am looking at another 997.2 variant that is available to me privately, however I am absolutely happy with this car and wouldn't be disappointed to make it a keeper.

I never seem to buy Aus delivered cars so can’t say I’m familiar with legit compliance plates :D

And it's extremely unmarked compared to the heavily marked paint all around it

I wondered about that too. If it is a repro; where can I get one (or two)!!!

 The VIN might confirm the story, but was there ever an original blue SC colour like that?

Without checking maybe that's an original colour of that year but It doesn't look like an original colour, just a strong gut feel, nothing more....

There were provisions in NSW to get replacement compliance plate through The RTA ( now RMS).  Only ones I have seen are an engraved black and white plastic, like name badges and door signs, but there could be other options.

Whether this is still offered, I don’t know and I couldn’t find anything on their web site.

This compliance plate below is from the Gumtree add that we are discussing. I'm curious myself about its origin as well, but the detail on the plate has spiked my curiosity even more. Who would include the DR.  ING.  h.c.F.  PORSCHE  AG without some sort of formal knowledge.

Another detail from the plate is that the car we are discussing is also a 1978 model year car,  the forth digit number 8 in the vin determines the model year.

That looks like Arrow Blue, which was an available colour on an SC.

The plate may be a Tourist Delivery thing? Might explain the early build date.

The time has come. My Tangy 68 912 LHD is for sale. Just back from Ron Goodman getting a couple of cosmetic bits sorted I need Tangy to go...because I have another 912 project on the way. In the last 5 years I have owned a 997tt, 964 4, 2x x 930's and this plucky 912 is by far the most fun. All the long hood looks, at a third of the price. It has been my daily drive for much of the year I have owned it. If I wasn't already married this car could have started many new relationships the number of times I have been pulled over for a chat (largely middle aged men naturally).

  I had a look at Simon's Porsche 911SC Site which has a couple of Owner Registered cars with a close VIN to the advertised car & that are here in OZ, and they both have checkered early histories. One could have been a Tourist delivery and the other was originally a 'grey import'  to USA. So you are probably right:

http://www.adelgigs.com/911scregistry.shtml

Another odd thing concerns the VIN on the real original plate example. It has a "7 " in it to denote 1977. I thought all SCs had 1978  ( "8"  ) in their VIN numbers even though some were built in 77. Maybe in the early days for these expensive cars, there was a bit of forward  dating to increase value? Off course now its the other way round!!!!

Maybe it was a Targa to start with? 

Now its just a pile of parts waiting for someone with a coupe body to rebirth it.

Are my eyes deceiving me but is the torsion bar hole in the rear guard way too big?

Run away, run away.

It all makes sense now, we saw a guy using the roof of a 930 Turbo as a surf board down on the Goldy a few weeks ago.

Thought it was a bit odd, but now the rest of the story is revealed 😂😂😂😂😂

I've always suggested to family and friends that when selling a car, put it on the side of the road with a for sale sign ...

People don't always know that they're looking for something until they see it.

Social media is the same ... comes up in your news feed (or whatever it is) and it looks interesting ... the ultimate impulse purchase ..
