10k: Sweet Six: 1999 Porsche Boxster 986, Low Miles, Minty Clean

The Porsche Boxster was released in 1997 to applause and adulation from the motor press corps.  They were right to point out that it was the first new car from Porsche in many years and Harm Lagaay’s design work was phenomenal.  Finally the car was (still is) a blast to drive and nothing beats sound sound of its mid mounted flat six when the top is down.  Find this 1999 Porsche Boxster for sale in Newbury Park, CA for $13,500 via craigslist.

The 986 cost more than $41,000 when new in 1999, plus all sorts of overpriced options that drive the price up on a Porsche like nothing else.  This one looks really well preserved and has only 60k miles on the odometer, and while many similar era examples are much cheaper, this one is clean.  The 2.5 liter flat-6 engine is good for 201 horsepower and motivates the 2800 lb roadster quite well.

This Boxster is also equipped with the preferred manual transmission, the sport package and the full leather interior option in red.  The full-leather option adds a leather covered dash, door inserts, center console and drastically increases the luxury feel of Boxster.
