This 2014 Porsche 981 comes finished in Black over Luxor Beige leather and pairs an optional 7-speed PDK transmission with its mid-mounted 2.7-liter engine. This example was generously optioned with the Leather Package, Light Design Package, Premium Package, Infotainment Package with Sound Package Plus, Bi-Xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System, and more. Showing just over 26k miles on the odometer, this two-owner 981 is now being offered for auction out of Nevada.

This Boxster comes finished in Black with a black convertible soft top and rides on factory 18” Boxster wheels dressed in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT tires. Optional details include colored Porsche-crested wheel center caps, a painted supplemental safety roll bar, and Bi-Xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). The seller adds that a clear paint protection film has been applied to the front end and half of the hood. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin presents Luxor Beige as part of the Leather Package along with 14-way Power Sport Seats included in the Premium Package which also adds dual-zone climate control, auto-dimming mirrors, and front seat heating/ventilation. The Light Design Package and Infotainment Package with Sound Package Plus were additionally opted for. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.

A mid-mounted 2.7-liter flat-six engine delivers naturally aspirated power to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission. With an output of 265 HP and 207 lb.-ft of torque, the Boxster accelerates from 0-60 MPH in approximately 5.5 seconds. Standard performance features include VarioCam Plus, Enhanced Porsche Stability Management (PSM), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), and Automatic Brake Differential (ABD). The seller adds that routine maintenance has been performed, and the front brake pads, rotors, and wear sensors were replaced at 20,508 miles. No outstanding maintenance items have been reported and a new battery has recently been added. The CARFAX report shows 4 service history entries.

This sale will include a clean title and a window sticker.

    Not bidding because black isn't for me. But this is a very clean car. Slap a fresh set of tires on it and it's like new.

    The threads on neither the pan nor the plug are damaged. A new crush washer was used, and proper torque was applied. I change engine oil in all my cars every 3,000 miles or annually, whichever comes first. I use Mobile 1 full synthetic in all cars.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Did you ever have an oil analysis?
    Oil seepage at drain plug is not normal. Any indication of the threads damaged? Did you use a new crush washer? Proper torque?

    @1965MG The car was purchased by first owner 5/15 with 11K miles. There is no service history prior to the first owners purchase. Please explain.
    According to the person from whom I purchased the car, the car was ordered by the Porsche dealer in Bend, OR for his wife to drive. The dealers kept the car listed in his inventory and it was never titled as sold to a retail customer. I purchased the car from the first “registered” owner, who lives in Powell Butte, OR, near Bend.
    I was attending my niece’s wedding near Bend, OR and saw the Boxster for sale. I called the owner and bought it on the spot. It was in excellent condition, and I have done my best to keep it that way.

    There is no service history of oil change since 5/17 when the car had 15K miles.
    I am a retired engineer and do routine maintenance on all the cars I own. I have attached a photo of the service records I keep for this car, which shows what was done, the date the service was performed and the mileage. See photo 122.

    What is date code on tires?
    The date code on the tires is 4913. While looking for the date code I also read on the tire that they were made in Germany. The date code and the made in statement shows these are the original tires. This also better answers an earlier question from @karq. The tires have not been replaced.

    Please comment on photo 41. There appears to be lots of water spots and streaks in the clear coat. Is it reasonable to assume this car needs paint correction?
    The car needs no paint correction. What you see in photo 41 is essentially the same that you see in photos 24-31, as well as some others. The photos were taken on a sunny day with light clouds, and you are seeing the reflection of clouds. I can see why you might think from photo 41 that the car is scratched. I guarantee you that it is not. I have attached a photo taken today with the car in my garage of the same area you refer to. Unfortunately, things in the garage are reflected off the paint but hopefully, you can see there is no paint damage, streaks, or water spots. See photo 121.

    Brake service is reported to have been done at 20K miles, but no documentation.
    The photo of the service records since I purchased the car shows when the front brake service was performed. The pads and rotors I replaced did not show excessive wear, but they were noisy. I did not like that, so I replaced rotors, pads, and wear sensors. I have receipts for parts used for service work performed that will be included with the sale of the car to the new owner.

    Photo 104 shows oil leak at oil drain plug.
    The underside photos were taken with the Boxster on my lift, with one of my other cars parked under it. No oil has dripped on the car below, so I have to believe this is just minor seepage over time. The car has been driven less than 100 miles over the past several months.

    Your response will help me in considering this auction.
    Thank you

    @karq I have not replaced the tires and I don’t know if they were replaced by the original owner. They may have been because he was a region manager for Discount Tire. There is no curb rash on the wheels. The original owner had a six car garage where the car was stored. Since I have owned the car it has been stored in my garage, most of the time on my lift. It has not sat out in the sun. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

  • karq (registered bidder) 3 monthsago

    there is no mention of tire replacement , is there any curb rash on the wheels? Has the car been stored inside out of the Nevada sun?

    Good idea regarding the driving video. Weather permitting, I should be able to take it for a drive in the morning. I will post as soon as possible.
