15k: Missing Pedal: 2000 Porsche Boxster Tiptronic
Every once in a while a really clean car appears that just begs for a feature, but it’s got some huge flaw – we’ll call it the Seinfeld factor. Today’s Porsche Boxster doesn’t have man hands and isn’t a close talker, but while it is factory fresh and has been driven less than 2000 miles a year, it is missing a crucial pedal. Find this 2000 Porsche Boxster Tiptronic for sale in Agoura Hills, CA for $14,995 via craigslist.
We will offer this minty clean Boxster as a great car for a disabled veteran or someone with a horrible commute. This one dates from the pre-dual-clutch era, so it has a conventional slushbox with steering wheel mounted buttons.
This Boxster had an original MSRP of around $50k when options were added and the inside of this one looks better than any this author has ever ridden in. The low end Porsche interior doesn’t wear well (lots of painted/hard plastics) but the few pictures included in this ad paint a pretty picture.
The model year 2000 Boxster had a 2.7 liter (upgraded from the previous year’s 2.5) flat-6 that makes 217 horsepower and combines with the 5-speed automatic for a zero-60mph of 7.2 seconds.
