25.9k for 2004 SE on BAT

Pretty good day for Boxster owner's on BAT yesterday. 2004 Boxster SE with like 25k miles went for $25.9k. I find myself enjoying the last few minutes of these auctions than following sports.

Any place other than BAT, I would have thought around 16-18. It was a beautiful car.

I saw that...kind of higher than I expected but looked like a nice car. Add a 5% buyers premium to the top and you're looking at ~$27.2K.

Plus shipping I think from CO to NJ. The NJ guys gobble up all the cars it seems.

Sooooo.......

......I followed that auction and commented.

I will just go ahead and put this out there for the collective......

In April of 2015, I paid $28,000 for my 2004 ď50 Years of 550 Spyder EditionĒ Boxster S.

She had 25,000 miles on her.

Cocoa.

Bose.

No CD changer.

Black seat backs.

I then flat bedded her to Flat 6 Innovations and had Jake install his ďIMS SolutionĒ, RMS, water pump, new clutch and flywheel, all three cam chain tensioners, new serpentine belt and idler pulleys, Air/Oil Separator, and then flat bedded her back.

Soooooo....Iím all in on this car. I could have bought a 997 911 for the same amount of money.

Iím glad I didnít.

I absolutely LOVE this car. I over paid for this car. And. I. Donít. Care.

Any car is worth whatever another person is willing to pay you for it.

I have put 30,000 miles on her. I have a lifetime of awesome vacation drive memories now and expect many more to come.

Iím glad I found my car when I did back in 2015. Another one of these sold for close to 30k a few months ago and she only had 8k miles on her.

I will never sell my car, so I donít even think about the money. This is my dream car. This is my retirement car.

Iím 50 years old.

I will drive this car until Iím in the nursing home.

Honestly, now that every new car is a rolling super computer with automatic transmissions and no spare tires or dip sticks and electric power steering and touch screen stereos, there arenít many new cars I really want to own anyway.

Just buy the car you want and pay whatever you can afford and be happy and stop worrying about it all.

100 years from now, none of this will matter.

+1 I am concerned battery powered cars are going to slowly suck the soul out of motor sports. And before you ask, yes I am a Luddite.

Yep....

....Black leather and top was a "No cost" option.

Other options of note were CD changer in frunk, Nav system, and Carrera GT Silver painted seat backs.

Glad Iím not the only one. I didnít start with an SE, but found a low mileage 986s and had Jake do the full performance upgrade,
Nickies etc. Later added the IMS solution. Itís a pretty much bullet proof Boxster. Itís been 9 years and will probably drive it to my funeral. And Iím way older than 50. Ha

A 2000 S w/21k miles also just sold on BAT for $21,350. And that is not including buyers costs. No IMSB done either.
