    I just bought a left over boxster with 72 miles for 15K off sticker. It was advertised for 10K off sticker on EBAY and I offered them 15K off and they took it. It is my 2nd boxster from this dealer and I got a good deal on one back in 99. This car has a ton of options I would never have ordered but at this price they are free. It is the only one I have seen with the 19in turbo 3675.00 wheels and it has Nav, xenons, multi functional wheel and loads more. Stickered for 60K and left the dealer on the road under 45K. No complaints here as I am seeing used boxsters going for about the same with a fraction of the options
  • Hello. I am looking to buy a 2008 Boxster with Preferred Package Plus with Tiptronic. The MSRP is $53,440. Considering it's year end, what would be a fair price? Can I expect to pay even less than invoice? Also, should I get quotes from different dealers, and have them underbid each other? Lastly, what should I expect to pay if I custom order one? Thanks in advance!
  • I just bought a brand new 2008 Boxster with Preferred Package Plus with Tiptronic for $47,500. The MSRP was $53,440, the invoice price was $46,560. I emailed 7 dealers within a 150 mile radius, asked them to find me this particular Boxster (which was not on any of their lots), and asked for their best offer. 6 responded. Only 3 actually would give me a price over email. The best offer I got was 8% off MSRP. I sent another round of emails to all the other dealers asking for them to beat this price. Many dealers tried to sell me cars they had on the lot or pre-owned cars. When I said no, they all lost interest in me. Only 1 other dealer was willing to work with me on the 8% off price. I sent them an email saying that "it looks like I'm not going to be able to get the price that I want, so I'll just wait for the 2009s. Thanks for your help anyway." He emailed me back saying, "Tell you what. I'll sell the car to you for $47,500 to earn your business." The original 8% off dealer couldn't match this price. So I bought it for $47,500 and it's on its way! Hope this helps anyone out there looking for a Boxster, or any car for that matter. Please email if you have any questions or need any advice, since I think I got a pretty good deal.
  • I think sranger is actually pretty close to the real price of used boxters.
    If you look at Carmax, there are 2006 Boxters for $30K or less.

    Just picked up a pre-owned 2000 Boxster with 58,000 miles for $14,500 in the Chicago area. Super clean car, hardtop, well optioned, 18" wheels, triple black.

    This is my first Porsche and I am thrilled. I did not do a PPI, but did a thorough inspection myself. I may have ended up with a car with a RMS issue, but who doesn't have one?

    Whoever said that life is not complete without a Porsche was right.

    I have not tried this myself yet, but supposedly de-natured alcohol will remove the airbag decals from the visors. Hope that helps.
  • ID ADVISE TO STAY CLEAR OF pORCHE mODELS MADE FROM 1992- 1999 BOXTERS RECALLED IN 1998 AND 99 ARE A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN jUST rEMEMBER THE VINTAGE pORCHES HOLD THE VALUE AS THE NEWER THEY GET DEPRECIATE tHEY GET CHEAPER AND CHEAPER MADE. aN EXAMPLE OF THAT WOULD BE THE CLASSIC BUG AND THE NEW BUGS gO FIND A 164-1979 BUG RE DONE AND SEE THE PRICES. PART CHEAP EASY TO FIX GOOD ON GAS RIGHT. vERSES NEW DECLINE IN PRICE IN ONE YEAR AND NOT MADE NEARLY AS WELL. lOW RIDING NOT AS GOOD IN SNOW SINCE ENGINES IN THE FRONT ETC SO DO YOUR HOME WORK AS i DID pLEASE JUST BECAUSE YOU PAY ALOT AND THE pORCHE LOGO IS ON THE CAR DOESNT MAKE A FINE CAR. tHE CLASSICS 911 CARERRA TARGA ALL HOLD WELL THATS WHY ANYONE WHO BUYS A pORCHE BOXER TRADES IN FOR THE 911 OR CARERRA tHEY KNOW . aLSO STAY CLEAR OF THE 928 AND 944 tROUBLE IN THE NEWER ONES. tHE 914 MADE IN 74 IS WORTH MORE THEN THEY ARE. i KNOW i OWNED ONE LOVED IT
  • EASY TO AVOID 1997-2005MODEL BOXERS J U N K YOU MAY AS WELL GO BUY A 1970 GREMBLIN FOR 300.00 YOULL GET BETTER GAS MILAGE AND NO HEADACHES RECALLED IN 97 -99 BOXERS WERNT OFF THE FLOOR AND THEY WERE GETTING BACK IN THE GARAGE AT A HIGH COST FOR COMPANY RECALLED FOR VARIUS THINGS STAY CLEAR IF THE TICKET ON A PORCHE IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE FOR A AVERAGE MAN TO BUY UNDER 20,000 THEN YOU KNOW WHY DONT BE A FOOL. ALSO IF YOUR GOING TO WANT THE LOGO FOR STATUS SYMBOL LIKE PORCHE BUY A CLASSIC THEY STAY TRUE TO THE VALUE REASONABLE TO FIX AND FIND PARTS AND THEY NEVER DIE AND WILL ALWAY REMAIN DESIREABLE LIKE THE 911 TARGA CARERRA ETC MAKE FROM 1970-1985.
