Hey Cool Car Fans,

I have a client who contacted me about helping him sell his 1999 Porsche Boxster cabriolet.  The Porsche Boxster is a mid-engine roadster built by Porsche. The Boxster was Porsche’s first road vehicle since the 550 Spyder that was originally designed as a roadster.  It’s a super cool car and in really good shape, especially for a Porsche around $10,000.  The miles are a bit high, but that’s why it’s priced to sell.

The first-generation Boxster (the 986) was introduced in late 1996 as a 1997 model; it was powered by a 2.5 litre flat six-cylinder engine. The Boxster’s name is a portmanteau of the word “boxer”, referring to the vehicle’s horizontally-opposed or “boxer” engine, and the word “roadster”, referring to the vehicle’s two seat capacity and convertible top. It will do 6.9 seconds (6.7) as a manual transmission with 201 horsepower @ 6000 RPM and  Gas Mileage City 17/Hwy 24 , which makes it a great commuter car.

I read some of the reviews on this vehicle over at Kelly Blue Book and out of a 148 reviews, this vehicle rates a 4.8 out of 5 by owners of the vehicle.   One of the vehicles had 142,000 miles on it and the owner was talking about how much he loved his Porsche Boxster.  The original MSRP on this vehicle was $41,000, so you get a ton of bang for your buck at a quarter of the original price.

On one site, that gave the Boxster a 4.5 out of 5 rating, one of the owners wrote the following…

“The Boxster is an amazing deal. You get so many people staring at you thinking wow look at that $50,000 Porsche. Little do they know that you can pick up a nice used one for about 15k. It has been very reliable and has good performance. Not as fast as a 911, but I bet it handles better. The mid engine makes this car handle like a million bucks. You only live once…Buy a Porsche!!”

He brings up a great point about the fact that most people who are not car enthusiasts really don’t know the difference between a Porsche 911 and a Porsche Boxster.  The also don’t know that Porsche is a two-syllable word.
