The Next Wheeler Dealer Car

2014 Boxster w/ 31K mi. Mahogany Metallic w/ Luxor Beige int. Lots of options. Great driving car. Assessing what items it needs (not very much). Watch the Classifieds when Brown Sugar is ready for sale.

Sorry for the lack of sunshine. OMA has suddenly become Seattle.

PDK. Got 32mpg @ 75mph on my 400 mi drive home.

The wheels are 19" Cayman S wheels. They remind me of the 987.1 18" versions. Easy to clean.
The tires are Mich PSSs w/ 5K mi.

Today's activity is a 4 step polish. She will pop after that.

I have seen that color combination in person and it is beautiful, also those CS wheels are my favorite ones as they look very clean, congratulations!

PS: you may be tempted to keep it instead 😁

Needs a few items repaired but generally in great shape with good maintenance. Clean CarFax, no accidents.
Watch the Classifieds, hopefully in 2 wks.

Very cool! I bought an east coast convertible in the winter a few years back and did pretty good. didn't flip it though.
2003 Z4 3.0 6 speed...placed in service mid-May of 2003. $47K sticker. I bought the car in late December of 2003 with 5K miles for $30K. Paid $700 to ship to Florida. I owned it for 5 years and sold it for $25,500.

Other flips have been Boxsters that needed a maintenance brought up to date. Fun to play with and get in the hands of new owners.

I'm not a dealer, so no auctions. I find Porsches that need that extra boost to make them special. Porsche buyers are particular and don't want issues. I just ordered $200 worth of parts that probably let this one down by a collective $2000. And I've become pretty good at detailing (won awards at my local Porsche event the last 2 yrs plus multiple car shows). As they say on Wheeler Dealers, you polish in the dollars. Eliminate the issues, get the maintenance up to snuff, and make it look like new should result in some profit, just like on the TV show. But Porsches are not growing on trees in OMA, so I have to travel to find my cars, and that costs $$$. My last 4 cars came from PA, WI, AZ, and MD. Have to be good at est what it will cost to repair and get the car to OMA. It can get complicated but I've gotten better at it as I go along. That's probably enough of the look behind the curtains for now.

Did Quirt hook you up with that part? I've sold him a bunch of 987's and one 981 for him to turn into race cars. He has tones on good interior pieces if he hasn't thrown them away yet. I think he may have given all the interior to his helper to sell.

I tested him and he got back to me right away but said he didn't have that switch. I found one on fleabay for a decent price. Regardless, thx for the tip. Hopefully this was the last piece I'll need to order.

Just picked this one up. Wasn't particularly looking for the next one, but it showed up and I made a deal on it. The details:

2014 Cayman S
44K mi
PDK, heated & vented seats, 14 way pwr & memory seats, bi-xenon w/ PDLS

I est 2 wks, maybe 3 to get it ready to go. It's a bit further upmarket than I want to go, but there aren't a lot of 09-12 cars out there. Watch the classifieds.

Thanks guys! Yes it is very nice. Just got done inspecting the underside - never seen one that clean, esp for the mileage.

Been spending $$$ like a drunken sailor today. $350 to the site sponsor and $1K to Tire Rack, but I think I've got the main things covered. While I wait for parts, I'll do my 4 point polish. It looks good now, but not next to my CSS. It will be spectacular when I'm done.

She got great gas mileage on my trip home.
