Now available is this 1997 Porsche 986 Boxster track car. Purchased by the seller in 2016 as a standard first-generation Boxster, this 986 was brought to Brandywine Motorwerks of Delaware to be converted into the competitive racer we see today. It features a rebuilt 2.5L flat-six engine, a lightweight racing interior, an AIM Solo data unit, GT3 control arms, and a Bilstein PSS9 coil-over suspension. With two seasons of track use and approximately 150 miles driven on the rebuilt engine, this 986 is eligible for PCA racing and is now being offered by its seller out of New Jersey.
This 986 has been refinished in a metallic blue color from its original shade of Black. The indicator lights have been deleted and removable racing numbers and decals have been added throughout the exterior along with tow straps and hood pins. A matching removable hardtop is also equipped along with lightweight Plexiglas windows. The factory 17” twist wheels have been painted matte black and dressed in Toyo Proxes which are said to retain a fair amount of tread.
Inside, the cabin has been stripped out and converted into a lightweight racing cockpit with a full roll cage and Sparco seats with a driver’s head restraint and OMP racing harnesses. Other additions include a quick-release Sparco racing steering wheel, a Coolsuit system, a roof net, and an AIM Solo data unit. The heater, air conditioning, and sound system have all been removed for weight savings.
The naturally aspirated 2.5L flat-six engine is said to have been rebuilt by Brandywine Motorwerks in 2016 with approximately 150 miles driven since. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission, and handling is improved by an upgraded Bilstein PSS9 coil-over suspension as well as GT3 control arms. Regular service is said to have been carried out by the current owner with special measures taken to prepare the car for track seasons each year.
This sale will include a bill of sale. For any avid driver eager to get out on the track, this purpose-built 986 Boxster race car is not to be overlooked.
