I am in the market for a 981 Boxter S, and for those who are in the market, also know how hard it is to find the right spec, the right deal, and have it happen to be near you. I am looking to track the car, but decided to go with Boxter over the cayman to also enjoy it during the summer with the roof down to replace my recently sold motorcycle. I have two options currently.
1. 2013 Boxter S for $41K
Pros: Low mileage (15k), Sport Chrono, black on black. PDK (my preference)
Cons: 19" silver wheels (need 20" Carrera wheels IMO or aftermarket), no sport design steering wheel (will install macan wheel), no Porsche Exhaust System, 250 miles away private seller
2. 2014 Boxter S for 47k
Pros: Very local, 29k Miles (not bad), one year newer, mint condition, Full spec, sport chrono, red seatbelts, gray on black color combo, classic Carrera 20" wheels, clear markers, and the Porsche exhaust system.
Cons: Price, and no sport design wheel but again, I actually prefer the macan wheel and my brother is a Porsche technician so its an easy swap.
So I guess my deciding factor is the 6k difference in the two cars. Is the PSE and the 20" wheels worth the 6k? Or would you go for the lower mileage car, and go aftermarket with the wheels and exhaust? I did not negotiate yet but I dont see them going down more than a $1000.
