Boxster S 2005 has arrived!***FOR SALE***

Took about a month to find the right car for me. Thought about a C6 Vette but couldn't bring myself to do it so I started looking for what would be my 3rd Boxster. Had a 99 Boxster and an 01 S before but wanted the glass rear window and a little research pointed me in the 05+ category. Wanted to stay as close to $30K as possible but really had no set budget. This would be a garage kept 3rd car for me so I didn't see the value in buying up to an 07/08/09 S. Thanks to the power of the internet found a 2 owner 05, all service records, serviced by same dealership, etc., 05 S with 15K miles. Passed the Porsche pre inspection report with no issues at all and now the car will begin it's transport to me today and should arrive tomorrow.

I'm pretty excited and the only thing I would like to do is change to clear marker lense and have a way to hook up my iPhone. BT not so important, just want to be able to access my music.

Congratulations on the new ride.

Most guys who have/had the 986s feel that the 987s are bigger and bulkier (and don't really like 'em).

Delivered about 2pm today and just drove it from the driveway to the garage and then put the cover on it. Looks to be in excellent condition (since I bought it sight unseen but inspected by Porsche dealer) and only a few small blemishes. Had a clear bra on and there is one very small tear in the front lower portion of the hood, no paint damage at all just a little wrinkle in the clear and on the lower driver side bumper area there are about 3 small tears in the clear, hard to see but if you run your hand over it you can feel it a bit. Can these small tears be clipped with a small scissor?

Here are the specs:

2005 S Boxster BLK/BLK 6sp manual 15,600 miles
Adaptive seats (heated, memory)
Self dim mirrors and rain sensor
Bose system w/windstop
Bi Xenon headlamp package
Heated front seats
19" Carrera S wheel
Wheel caps with colored crest
Sport Chrono package w/o PCM (no idea what this option is or does)
Black mats
PASM

MSRP $65,000 bought for $31K with Porsche car cover

A few things I will do....order clear side markers (from where?) and add iPhone.iPod integration. With convert I realize SQ will suffer so I am undecided if I will go with FM modulator or Denison Gateway 500. I don't mind using the iPhone to control songs, etc. BT option not important.

Fantastic - enjoy...!

Always wavering on which is my favorite car - Cayman or Boxster - probably have to go with "both."

Had both 986 and 987 series, both have their good points. 986 is closer in look to the original Boxster concept, but 987 has many functional improvements, especially the interior.

Have fun...

Nice car and great price. Not many Boxsters with PASM. Did you buy it from a Porsche dealer?

Searched for about a month online with cars.com and autotrader.com and looked for blk or yellow manual cars. Wasn't terribly concerned about options as long as it had heated seats and xenon lighting. This car came with nice options, garage kept and dealer maintained. Private owner who was great to work with, same goes for Tom Wood Porsche in Indianapolis who did the PPI and arranged for the full detail.

Didn't you just buy it a few weeks ago? I just bought an 08 S last Friday, I wish I knew before then. Too bad, hope you're ok.
Just bought it 3 weeks ago, put 8 miles on it and have been pounded with snow since. All is well but need to sell.
