Fried Eggs Benedict: 1997 Porsche Boxster with 911 Flat-6

I’ve been a big fan of the Porsche Boxster since it hit the market about 20 years ago, and my enthusiasm has only grown as they’ve aged into cheap abused late models.  You really can’t beat the performance-per-dollar ratio of a $7,500 mid-engined Porsche, particularly one with the big 3.4 liter engine from a 911. Find this 1997 Porsche Boxster with 911 Flat-6 offered for $7,800 in Millbrae, CA via craigslist.

From the seller:

Selling my 97 Porsche Boxster with 3.4 996 swap.


Black on black

Clean title 

Current register with tags due next year

About 150k miles on body 70k miles on motor

3.4 996 motor

Boxster S front bumper 

Oem 996 gt3 sports seats

Custom 3″ K&N intake with 540i afm housing 

Aftermarket header

New RMS bearing 

New water pump

Need ECU flash software to unlock the power of the 3.4 motor (currently running stock 2.5 boxster software)

Body is straight but the clear coat peeling off on driver’s side

The car is pretty much stock other then the swap. Runs good but need to get the ecu flash for smog. A good deal if you need a 996 motor, the motor along is worth my asking price. 

See a better way to go fast?
