480 Horsepower V8 Powered; 2000 Porsche Boxster S

The first generation Boxster was Porsche’s first road-going mid engine car since the 914 and as such was bestowed with fantastic handling, grip, steering, controls; truly a sublime car to drive with gusto, particularly in the faster “S” trim.  This next example takes the excellent chassis and shoves an all-alloy ‘Murican V8 behind the rear seats.  Expect excitement.  Find this 2000 Porsche Boxster S  here on eBay offered for $35,000 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Marietta, GA.

Thanks for checking out my car! If you want something unique then you’ve found it!!  I’ve built and documented it over the last 3 years and believe it to be the best sorted Boxster V8 conversion out there.  Mechanically everything but the transmission, alternator and A/C compressor have been replaced or upgraded to new and those items are in perfect working order.

The convertible top has been upgraded with a glass rear window, is in good overall condition and operates properly.  Clean Carfax with no accidents, still has its’ original paint which shines up very well.  Seats were upgraded to Porsche sport seats in black and have typical bolster wear on the drivers side and some water spots but are in good overall condition with no tears.

The car is extremely fun to drive, very fast and is still very nimble!  The mid-engine design really allows you to take advantage of the extra power and handling capabilities and in my opinion is waaaaay better then building a 996/911 due to much better weight distribution.  I would be glad to answer any questions you may have on the car so feel free to message me and we can exchange numbers.  The car is located in Marietta, GA and it is the buyers responsibility to arrange pickup or shipping.  If you are interested I would encourage you to come check the car out in person~
