Ran When Porked: 2001 Porsche Boxster

This next car is a late model Porsche Boxster offered for $2000…so something has to be grenaded in the expensive Porsche 2.5 liter flat-6 engine. That is not good…so you’ll need to fix that, but those Porsche parts are “oh so expensive”…perhaps a Fiero Iron Duke 4-banger or a Buick 3800 supercharged V6 would fit out back? What do you guys think — what should re-power this porked Porsche? Find this 2001 Porsche Boxster offered for $2000 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist.

This is a 2001 Boxster black convertible sports car. It is not running and needs work to get up and running again. A good car to work on for fun or use parts. Will need to be towed, front windshield has a crack in it. This car has always been garaged and is beautiful. Leather seats. If you want a good project or need parts this is a great find. Will only take cash.
