I'm looking for a beat-to-hell Porsche so I can say I have one. Discuss.
Just wait until you need to change the belt......
They say it's just four bolts and the engine drops right down, just like the old Volkswagen Bug.
Get aircooled. Old school. Is it really a Porsche if it is not aircooled?
For Sale - Mint, 2016 Porsche Boxster... 17,500 miles
Bit harder than that.... Pull the rear bulkhead carpet out and there's an access panel under it. Remove that panel and the belt is right there, Same to change the water pump. Speaking of which if you don't have one get a cooling system vacuum filler, Works on every vehicle out there.
He’d have to get a 911. No such thing as an air-cooled Boxster unless you’re referring to it with the top down.
Good low-mileage 2000. Only two owners. Used Cars for Sale - Find Great Deals with CarGurus - CarGurus I’m finding that from 6.5-9k the cars get two to three years newer and lower in mileage. IMS bearing remains a hypothetical issue. Porsche went away from it in 2005.
Pennsylvania? Not exactly down the street.
Nope. But there’s a Porsche dealer in the same town. You tell the seller you’re interested contingent on a dealer inspection either at their cost or you splitting it with them. If it passes, you spend $150.00 on a one-way plane ticket, and you drive the Boxster back to Florida. No more than $300.00 out of pocket to get a nice clean car. I’ve got alerts out to a couple sites. Not getting much feedback.
Why the hell would I fly out there and drive it back instead of just having a company ship it here?
That’s your call. It’ll cost $800-900 to flatbed it to Port St. Lucie. That’s 11-12% of the purchase price. Was looking out for your costs plus going up there gives you the chance for a visual inspection before you commit. I’d get it inspected at a Porsche facility regardless. Looks like a nice little car, checks all the boxes.
It's over budget and thousands of miles away. Those are some very large boxes that aren't checked. But I appreciate your help anyway.
No worries. You’re shopping a limited market. Be prepared to have to travel a ways to get what you really want. Personally I’d pass on the risk of throwing away several thousand dollars to stay that strict within budget. What I really mean is, when these cars fail, they’re expensive to fix. Your repairs could easily be more than what you paid for the car. You’re essentially weighing the cost to own one versus the cost to maintain one. I’d think about that as you shop.
I don’t care if it runs, just want to be able to say I own a Porsche.
whats your address I will ship it free
There used to be a guy in Winter Park for many years named Nort Northam(?) and he specialized in selling and servicing used Porsche and other Euro. stuff. He also raced Porsche and seemed like a pretty good guy(he was a customer of mine when I sold shop supplies) not sure if he's still there but he had been in business for years and I never heard anyone speak badly of him....
Nort Northam Collection. He’s got some clean cars, some older cars, and a dump or two. The best pre-owned option your way IMO is Millenia Motors in Longwood. Oliver and his dad run the place out of large metal warehouse. Lots of inventory, and all of it very clean. I drove over there five years ago curious to see what they had. They had a ton of older 911s, including a very clean 2004 GT3 with the famed Mezger dry sump power plant. I came close to pulling the trigger. They wouldn’t play with numbers, so I walked. Millenia Motors
I think he sells mostly on consignment but I haven't been there in 15 years....I used to have a major hard on for AC Cobras(replicas) and I still do if I can fit my big ass into one and he was one of the few places where you could actually see one up close....I know you're a Porsche guy, did you ever meet him or talk to him? He seems likable and the Winter Park crowd I grew up with loved the guy.
