For Sale: 1997 Porsche Boxster - $11,700 OBO (Austin, TX)

I am offering my Porsche Boxster at $11,700 or best offer. It has 64,3xx miles.

Highlights include:
– Ice cold AC
– New tires
– Battery replaced on 10/9/09 (have receipt)
– 60k-mile service done at German Auto Center here in Austin on 11/4/09 (have receipt)
– Replaced oil and oil filter (Mobil 1)
– Replaced spark plugs
– Replaced fuel filter
– Replaced engine air filter
– Replaced cabin air filter
– Top is watertight and in excellent condition
– Paint is in excellent condition with no scratches or dents
– Leather seats have a patina but no tears or scratches
– No oil leaks
– Extremely clean interior
– Always garaged

As it turns out, having a two-seater is not a very good idea if you move here from out of state and your family and friends visit you all the time. Try driving both of your parents and all their luggage home from the airport in a Boxster 🙂 I have already moved on to something with four seats and the Boxster now passes its time in the garage waiting for you to pick it up.

After I bought the car, I spent $1400 in standard maintenance and aftermarket mods. I wanted it to be a reliable daily driver for the next four to five years, and I wanted to insure its mechanical condition and make it look a lot newer. It’s tough to part with this car after sinking that much money into it, but my loss is your gain. Lesson learned.

It needs absolutely nothing now and will need nothing but a couple oil changes until the next 30k mile service interval in 26k miles!

I have gotten plenty of offers for $10k cash and I am not interested in such a figure, although the $11,700 list is negotiable.

Here’s what I’ve done since October 2009 to insure its mechanical reliability and update its look:
60k Service (change oil (Mobil1), replace engine oil filter, engine air filter, cabin air filter, spark plugs, adjust parking brake): $900
Aftermarket LED taillights: $200
Aftermarket carbon fiber shift knob: $160
Aftermarket LED 3rd brake light: $110
New floormats: $80
Tints: $72
Aftermarket side markers: $50

I have a receipt for every single item above. All work was done by German Auto Center.

For those who are struggling to get financing on a 1997 vehicle, check out Austin Telco Federal Credit Union at They financed this car at 3.69% for 30 months. The application process is extremely easy and open to everyone.

This car is quick, sounds beautiful, handles like a go-kart, and gets a ton of looks! I welcome all third-party inspections.

    11,000 for that? I’m not interested in buying, but i’m sure you could sell it for more money, or maybe even continue keeping it and wait till it’s a collector item; that’s when the prices will rise easily
