1999 Porsche 986 Boxster

Next up at auction is this 1999 Porsche 986 Boxster finished in Black over a black leather interior. This first-generation Boxster was delivered new to Aristocrat Motors of Shawnee Kansas, and was optioned with 17” 996 Carrera-look wheels, cruise control, a 6-speaker sound system, a remote-control alarm system, a cabin wind deflector, and a CDR220 radio. This example was acquired by the seller in July of 2021 at 48,538 miles from the third owner, who continued to have the vehicle serviced by the selling dealer. Maintenance under the current ownership includes the replacement of the passenger side window regulator, the replacement of the windscreen attachment clips, new brake rotors and pads, a new coolant reservoir, and an oil service. Showing 49,805 miles on the odometer, this 986 has been well cared for and is now being offered at auction by the seller based out of Texas.

This Boxster was ordered in Black (741) with a power-operated black convertible soft top which has received the application of Porsche convertible top water repellant. The seller describes the exterior to be in very good condition, having benefitted from reportedly being garage kept and covered since new. A small, almost invisible dent on the passenger side door is reported, as well as some minor rock chips in the hood, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The 17” Carrera-look twist-spoke wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3+ all-season tires on the rear displaying date codes from 2020, and current generation A/S4+ in the front, which show date codes from 2021.

The interior features seating surfaces upholstered in black leather along with a matching dashboard and door panels. The seller notes some minimal wear to the seat bolsters, a scrape on the driver’s seat cushion, and wear on the shifter boot. Amenities include a wind deflector, cruise control, power accessories, and an upgraded JVC head unit with Bluetooth.

The Boxster is powered by a mid-mounted 2.5-liter M96 flat-six engine that was factory rated at 201 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, which drives the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transaxle. Service documentation shows an oil service, a flush of the brake system, new brake rotors and pads, a new water pump and belts, a new coolant reservoir, a new passenger side window regulator, and the replacement of the hood latch. The seller reports this Boxster to run and drive as new, with no issues or warning lights.

This sale will include a clean title, service documents, and owner’s manuals.

    One other thing... There is a readily available shifter boot and knob replacement for $100+ with an easy change out (You Tube video) if the somewhat worn boot on this Boxster annoys you. - thx - cfb

  • britco4 (seller) 5 months, 3 weeksago

    A note on the convert top video... Maybe not necessary but I always do the Boxster plastic window "chop" to get best folding and use a towel in the fold to keep grit grinding between the window folds to a minimum. This top seems to be in pretty good shape and should have good life left in it if not mistreated and it get proper care. - cfb

    @jaaberg - Well I've been stepping through some Porsche bucket list vehicles but have only been allotted 2 spaces in our 3-car garage - currently held by this Boxster and a Porsche 911/993. Given that the Boxster get sold, it will be replaced by something Porsche though there are a lot of other great non-Porsche vehicles. One thing Porsche has going fo it is that there is a nation wide very active Porsche social and driving community. Porsche Club of America. Every weekend here in the Houston area there is a Get-Together somewhere around the city. Porsche owners and their cars. Lots of other activities in the Porsche scene. Maybe BMW has the same, I'm not sure. Thanks, cfb

    @britco4 I was wondering the same thing so I thought I'd kick things off with a cheeky, but appropriately numbered bid. I've noticed on this site that a lot of bids tend to come the last hours of the last day. Being BMW centric, I've leaned to that realm of Teutonic driving. I own an '97 M3 and have a 330i as a daily driver. However, I am desirous of moving out of my comfort zone. I've driven on one of these in the past and enjoyed the mid-engined two-seater experience.

  • britco4 (seller) 5 months, 3 weeksago

    @jaaberg - Thanks for the bid. It's a minimalist bid but at least it's better than anything prior. I Wonder where all the Boxster needers are. Could be that the auctions are a bit flooded with convertible owners getting their sellers Spring listed. This 99' would make someone a very nice driver that should be low maintenance. I could go on and on about bang for the buck but I will just self stifle. Thanks Again... -- Regards, cfb

    LOL - that is "Glad to answer..." and "Grad to answer..." in my original email. I really need to proof better before "SEND"

    Good Day All - I am the Seller so some background on me and the vehicle. Private owner, have sold on Pcarmarket in the past (Jan 2022 - 2012 Cayenne Turbo) and look forward to passing this 986 to a new owner. I retired last April 2021 and lets say "rewarded" myself with the Cayenne, this 986 and a 993 by the end of 2021 as stepping back into the Porsche world. All were bucket list vehicles and not thought to be long term holds. Concerning this Boxster - I put less than 1500 miles on it as owner. Currently, there are no mechanical problems that I am aware of. I believe the clutch to be original and the engine has not been dropped to my knowledge. It's a 2.5L 99' so it is believed to be double ROW IMS that have history of very low failure rates. There are many web site to address this concern if you are not familiar with the issue and interested. Some of you out there might want to comment? Replacements in my care are shown in the pics as hand written. My reason for selling is that I have checked it off my Porsche "bucket list" and will be moving on to another Pcar after it sells. Probably an older model air-cooled (964 or earlier). I suspect this Boxster should be an excellent "driver" for someone needing some enjoyment. Hopefully, it will find itself spending time in a nice garage when not out on the road and so as it has been in the past. Thank you for viewing, commenting and bidding on this black example. Grad to answer any questions and constructive criticisms as I know what to expect on these auctions! Get out there, drive and Enjoy - Spring is a Great Time to be on the Road. - Chuck
