Don't limit yourself to 50 miles. 200-500 miles is more reasonable. And gives you a chance to drive it home and become one with the Boxster.

I agree, the reality is you have to cast your net pretty far. I am also in the DFW area but ended up buying mine in Atlanta. Now that is a bit far, but the state of Texas and surrounding states would be reasonable to find the "right" car. It pays to be choosey.

All,

Thanks for the advise. I saw the ParkPlace one but it was out of my $ reach. Will cast wider and see what turns up!

Not sure if you would be interested. Here is a link to my car on Autotrader.

I agree. I don't live near TX, but I eventually found the Box I was looking for 200 miles away.

They're out there, keep looking.

That exact same car was listed on Craigslist a few months ago in Frisco, not Dallas, for 17.5 K.

Something's fishy................

Just sayin'.......................

Besides Autotrader and Cars.COM are there any other sites where people put up their cars for sale? Expanded my search to 300 Miles around DFW - Still no success yet Maybe people have started stowing away their Boxers for Winter!

I bought mine through eBay of all places. I was definitely searching the other sites as well, but the one that caught my eye was on eBay. I had a PPI done remotely, and then flew in and drove it back from PA to NC.

Agree with Flavor: Expand your search horizon, especially if you have a specific color/option profile in mind.
I am in Alabama. The first Boxster I tried to buy was in Atlanta. When I called Sunday to arrange a PPI Monday (after seeing car Fri night), I was told a Colorado buyer had verbally committed to buy it sight unseen and was wiring the money.
The next one to catch my eye was in Chicago. I emailed as soon as I saw it, but by the time I made contact with the seller, he had a verbal commitment from a buyer (986forum member) from TX, who stole that beauty from my grasp.
The third one was in Texas. I called within 24 hr of the listing, but the seller told me he had taken a call about an hour earlier from a guy in NY who was flying that afternoon to look at it, provided he would hold it until he could get there. That guy bought it (for his daughter!).
Finally I found my car in Philly, put down earnest money, and flew up there to take it for a PPI and back to its new home. The drive back was fantastic (except the gravel truck, whose driver should be glad the FAA doesn't allow firearms in carry-on luggage). That car was only available to me because another out-of-state buyer had backed out of the deal.
The point is, long distance purchases seem more the norm than the exception for these. There are a lot out there. But the choice specimens are limited and worth travelling for.
Consider Ebay, but unless you are very familiar with these cars, a Strong PPI with PIWIS interrogation is absolutely essential. Carfax is a start, but do not regard it as the final word for accident history - I've bought 2 cars off Ebay, both had undisclosed accident repairs which I caught on inspection but were not deal-breakers.
