Car guru! I found many that I loved, very quickly, and picked one out. Define your search to area, price, year, etc.

If you look around you can find quite a few 'S' models on Craigslist that aren't quite an S. I suppose if you stick enough S's on it an uneducated buyer won't know any better.

Here's a 1999 Boxster S. Looks like an S, maybe they got the year wrong:

Here's a 02 Boxter S "sport edition". The Sport edition S comes with a 5-speed (and 2.7).

I was offered $5,000 for my stove!

But, he then said he wanted a check for $3,000 back and I could keep the change. Wrong check sent to me with my name on it.

I love to F with scammers. When they come at me with that scam, I tell them that was the agreed upon price. I must have been put on the scammers "no scam list" because I never get any attempts anymore. I kind of miss them.

Here's a site I used to go to. No affiliation. I gave a CL scammer the FBI internet fraud direct line as my personal phone number once. Never heard back from them??

Let me know if anyone wants me to look at it. But that doesn't look like OMA in the pic and there's no phone # to contact. Looks good in the pics...

This is a pretty nice boxster with quite low miles.

However I've seen 987 S cars for less.

I love playing the S or not an S game.

Any time I look through Craigslist I look for cars listed as an S that are posers, (every now and then you'll find a boxster spyder 1997 or a boxster s 1998 model lol.)

Anyways the car in the link has me stumped on if it's an S or not!

It's an S model.

The key is the VIN: WP0CB2980YU660720

Character 5 (from left) will be an "A" for a base model or a "B" for an S model.

I forgot to check the vin. I guess the new question is, why does it have a 4 spoke?

I've seen other S models with 4 spoke wheels. Must have been the standard in the early years.

How about brand new clear (OEM?) headlights for only $699:

You just have to wait a couple weeks in the US for the shipping from Latvia ($90).

Hopefully I'm not breaking the rules here as this is not a Porsche. But it's got the right colors!

Yes I know it's not CL but thought it was cool enough to share anyway
