I'd put it around $12-13K and I'm trying to be generous. I imagine that the seller is asking quite a bit more but a lot of those options and upgrades don't really add to the value unless the buyer specifically wants them and is willing to pay for them.

At the end of the day, its still a 14 yr old base model for which the base Blue Book is less than $10K. Boxster's, even really clean, low mileage cars, are still a dime a dozen.

Appreciate the feedback.Seller wanted $13K.Was purchased for $11K.

Now the fun begins as the car has the 3000-3200 RPM "Vibration" which is especially evident on deceleration.

Don't buy the first one you look at. Try several for comparison purposes. When you think you have a keeper get a PPI done.

After I got a PPI and there were a couple things wrong I got the price reduced by $3k. Mind you I paid a lot more than you are about to as I bought mine 3 years ago, it was 2001 base and had only 30k miles. The $$$$ saved you can put in the Porsche maintenance for future use!
Cheers, G.
Do not be in a hurry!.
