1999 Boxster - bad engine - SOLD

I'm selling my 1999 black Boxster. It has a cracked #5 cylinder on the crankcase side (not sleevable). It still runs, and for the most part, runs fine. Sometimes it runs like crap and throws a code for misfires on the #5 cylinder. Mechanically, it is sound (except for the crack). It's got an LNE IMS, new water pump, and new AOS. This was my daily driver, so it has door dings. It needs a new rear window on the convertible top, as it has a small spiderweb crack in the middle. I've got that covered with a small spot of helicopter tape, so it doesn't leak.

I've got Brey & Krause seat mounts with sliders, and without sliders (2 sets of mounts) for a Recaro Profi SPG XL seat which is also available. I've got a black hardtop available, and winter wheels and tires also available.

It is drivable, but I don't know for how much longer, so I wouldn't plan on driving it home unless you're in the Chicago area.

Sorry to hear of that failure especially since you did all the other preventative maintenance items.

Thanks for the detailed description but you forgot the most important part....$$$$$$

The chassis has around 75,000 miles. The engine is the third (as far as I know) that has been in the car. When I bought the car it had a warranty replacement engine. I blew the engine at Road America and replaced it with the current engine from OK Foreign. They told me the engine had 96k on it.

I can take pictures of it tomorrow, though it is dirty as it's been sitting the driveway since Feb.

I'm hoping to get around $3500, as that's what I paid for this engine that only lasted 2 years. Make me an offer. The hardtop, winter wheels/tires, and seat/seat hardware would be negotiable separately.
