2004 Boxster 5 speed Black 51k miles

My bones are beginning to creak climbing in and out so I guess it's time to let her go. I'll post more specs and pictures in a day or so but I'd first want to see what the market bears for the car. Pristine and 2nd owner. Black in and out. Seats with red stitching and red seatbelts. Aluminum console. 4 new Michelin Pilot Sport tires with about 3k on them. I'm thinking 20k or so. 100% stock otherwise. All service records. Never see snow and very little rain. I love it but its time.

Sorry to see you giving it up. Someone's going to get a very nice ride. How many miles are on it?

Is it?

Kinda on the fence now.

I just spent $3,000 2 weeks ago for the IMS bearing upgrade, new rear main seal, new clutch, new pressure plate, new throwout bearing, did a brake fluid flush, oil change, etc., and then put 1,000 miles on last weekend (New England jaunt).
Everything was a proactive measure, so I could drive the car and not keep thinking, "is it gonna happen to me, what if it does, etc., etc., etc.,) and then be $20k in the hole for a new motor.
(I'm sure everyone has by now heard of the IMS Class Action lawsuit).

In any event, I love it, it's in the garage all covered up waiting for the next sunny day, unless someone wants to offer me $23k now (considering it's a "safe" investment with all of the proactive work done).

BTW, the Oldwick Village Garage in Oldwick, NJ did the work, and I'd trust absolutely nobody else, not even the Porsche dealer) for any work.

So, is it still for sale? If I get my $23k, possibly, if not, I'll most likely keep it for a few more years until I can afford my next car (Tesla....drove it, loved it).
