One-Owner 16k-Mile 2001 Porsche 986 Boxster S 6-Speed

Now up for auction is this 2001 Porsche 986 Boxster S finished in Biarritz White over a black interior.  A favorite among driving enthusiasts, the first-generation Boxster offers a nimble, lightweight platform with a mid-mounted flat-six engine sending power to the rear wheels.  This 2001 example came optioned with 18” SportClassic wheels, Porsche Stability Management (PSM), and a 6-speed manual transmission.  Having remained under the care of its original owner in California and Nevada, this Boxster S shows just under 16k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Las Vegas.

This 986 comes finished in Biarritz White (9A2) and features a black convertible top, side air intakes, and a dual center-exit exhaust.  The seller describes the car to have been garage-kept and notes a small dent on the passenger-side rocker panel as well as a small scratch on the driver-side rocker panel near the rear wheel arch.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean one-owner CARFAX report.  This Boxster S was ordered with optional two-piece 18” SportClassic wheels which were reportedly mounted with new Michelin Pilot Sport N3 tires in January of 2020.

Inside, you will find a black interior with power-operated leather seats, cruise control, automatic climate control, a cabin wind deflector, and an upgraded Nakamichi stereo.  The cabin is described to have been very well maintained with only a few small scratches on plastic trim pieces. The seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.

This Boxster S carries a mid-mounted 3.2L flat-six engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.  This naturally aspirated power plant sends as much as 250 HP and 225 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels.  Fixed 4-piston brake calipers are equipped at all four corners and this 986 was optioned with Porsche Stability Management (PSM).  A new battery has been installed and maintenance carried out since 2019 includes a new air filter and mass airflow sensor at 13.9k miles, new tires and wheel alignment at 14.7k miles, and a full service and inspection at 15.9k miles.  The results from the inspection are available for reference in the photo gallery.

This sale will include a master key, toolkit, owner's manuals, glass wind deflector, and a clean title. A low-mileage, one-owner West Coast car, this Boxster S is a perfect choice for any discerning driver in search of a Porsche 986.

    @riderup Hi @riderup The car did not sell on BaT, as reserve was not met. We’ve listed it with PCARMARKET, as we are confident that it will sell here. We are looking forward to seeing this Boxster S go to a great new home!

  • riderup (registered bidder) 1 week, 6 daysago

    I'm curious about what happened after this car appeared to have sold on BaT?

    Hi @Thepillone

    The Porsche specialist that did the PPI for us said there is no cause for worry regarding the water pump. The car has been garaged since we acquired it, and there is not a drop of liquid under the vehicle.

    The fuel door is a tiny crack on the hinge that does not affect usability. It is barely visible - I never noticed it until they pointed it out in the PPI, and I still struggle to find it.

    Videos of start up, car running and more will be available in the gallery soon!

  • essencemotors (seller) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Hi @Fguide Thank you! We have no records that the IMS bearing has been replaced or retrofitted.

  • Thepillone (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Could you give the outcome of the water pump and fuel door problems as listed on the repair invoice. Will you be posting start up and run videos? Thanks.

  • Fguide (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Has the IMS bearing be retrofitted or replaced? Very nice Boxster

  • essencemotors (seller) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    Hi everyone,

    We are excited to offer this pristine, one owner Cal-Nev Boxster S with 16k miles.

    This car really feels like a time capsule. It is in immaculate condition, with its interior and exterior condition showing a car that was garaged its entire life.

    In addition to a full service and new battery, we had a comprehensive PPI done at Vegas’ top Porsche service center, Trophy Performance. It’s got a clean bill of health, mechanically solid, and the tires are like new.

    Feel free to message us with any questions. We would love to accommodate a tour - either in-person here in Las Vegas, or virtual over FaceTime, etc.
