Hi JPBJR, sounds like you have a great example of the 986 550 SE. If you would like, feel free to post you details and pics in our 550 SE thread:

Official 2004 Boxster S 550 Anniversary Edition thread

Not trying to be elitist, just trying to see as many 550 SEs as possible in one place

2000 s

Its truly great to see so many great boxsters with well over 100K miles

Mine is just about to click over to 100k. It is used every day thru the week and lives outside in all weathers, doesnt use any oil or water to speak of and is still wearing 90% of its original paint

Jay Leno summed it up nicely when he said Ferrari owners like to brag how low their mileages are on their cars where as Porsche owners like brag about how high their mileages are.....

I think this is down to the fact they are so addictive to drive.

How often do you see Ferraris or Lambos on eBay with over 100K miles??

Amazing car, I know what you mean about loving her more each day, Im there... to point of not liking people touching her even mechanics, our kids oh ye and wifey who constantly reminds me its just a car lol Its weird because our family Passat is probably worth twice as much but iv next to zero interest in that.

1997 chassis has about 240,000 miles.

The original engine failed at 204,000 street miles. Then the car was re-built as a race car and a used replacement engine installed.

The current engine (#4 since becoming a race car) has around 100,000 street miles plus another 70 hours racing. I don't know the conversion between hours of racing and equivalent street miles but my guess is that the 70 hours (near or at redline) is close to another 70,000 miles on the street. With 70 hours racing already, I expect it to fail sometime in 2018; but who knows, maybe it will make it to 2019!

Just bought a 1999 with 180k miles. Not certain the engine is original. I need to investigate that. The car is in amazing condition for miles and age. It was cheap and we plan to drive the tires off it until something craps out. I'll keep proper care of it and hope it turns 250k before something like the engine needs rebuilding.

We've had a couple of Silver 986's over the past 15 years. This one is the red-met or burgandy, love the color!

Yes afaik. Bought it in 2011, with no reason to believe the motor and transmission have ever been out of the car. Have done water pump and nearly entire suspension. 2 tops, and had collision repair after a sapling destroyed the front radiators and bumper. 7500 mile oil change intervals.
