I think I paid $3200 for my car about 5 years ago. It needed work but was driveable. I don't think it look as good as the OP's car.

Boxsters are looking more and more attractive to me. (pricewise anyways)
I probably have about a million dollars into my car by now so something like this is seems reasonable for what you get.

Been there, done that.

About four years ago I co-purchased a '99 base Boxster with 175,000 miles and a couple of dents. $6700 (you could get the same car today for $5000). Purposed just for autocross, we refreshed the brakes, put in a L&N IMS, light weight flywheel, sports clutch, short shifter, used performance exhaust, extended roll bar, dual adjustable coil-overs, used racing seats and harnesses. Probably $10K in improvements spread over two years and shared cost. It is a super fun car. Very quick and handles extremely well. We competed regionally against one another and had a blast. So four years of a lot of fun with an over-all cost of approx. $8350 each. That's just over $2000 a year. Add entry fees and fuel, divide by 12 events per year and we were probably averaging about $225 per event. But once you get past the build stages, it's really very inexpensive.

OBTW - that Boxster is now for sale for $8000. PM me if your interested.

Ive only driven the 986 out of the boxsters, its a pretty dull car to drive. Feels like it needs lot of work to get even near my 931 when it comes to driving fun. But they are cheap, that means more money left for upgrades

The lightweight flywheel makes a Boxster come alive. But you could probably say the same for 924/944.

Cheap and looks clean...Couldn't make a 931 look that good even if you got it for a 12 pack and Dwight Gooden Jersey. Just sayin...

A damaged 924 turbo RHD went for $6400 just the other day...and UK prices are lower than euro prices because of their RHD thing.

Here's a cream puff 931. Looks like a very good all original example.

Yeah, nice example, been watching that for a couple weeks now. But the hood isn't original paint: "The hood is a matte black with the factory turbo scoop". Which is too bad, because that is a lovely color. Creampuff for sure, if the story about gramps is true. Not too far from the shop in Plymouth either...!

Yeah, I noticed that too. Just another case of someone's lack of knowledge.
