2002 Boxster 11750 miles New Engine
 
2002 Porsche Boxster, 11750 miles
5 speed, 2.7L, Silver on Black on Black.

Looks and smells like a show room car.
Interior is flawless with upgraded SAT/NAV touch screen sound system.
The only flaws I have noticed are a couple nicks around the drivers door handle.
When the car was delivered to me, every compartment had desiccant packets.
This was a true garage queen, prior to the engine failure.

Selling because I have 9 Porsches. No place to store this one.

New Engine (original had an IMS failure)
LNE IMS Retrofit
Nikisil Lined Block/Cylinders
LNE Low Temp Thermostat
LNE Billet Chain Tensioner Paddle
LNE Oil Pump drive
New Water Pump and Battery

The core of the rebuild had suffered a bent rod due to a AOS failure/hydrolock
at 40K miles. The rod bent at start-up. We stripped it down,
there were no issues with the engine otherwise. We replaced the rod.
This block was a series of blocks that I had Nikisiled.
Along with the above, this engine received:
new main and rod bearings, rings, seals, tensioner blades, tensioners, valve job.

Prior to installing the engine the compression was measured at 225-230psi/cylinder (cold)
and 1-3% leak down (cold). Off the starter, it cranked 51psi oil pressure.
Driving it around town -- this engine feels pretty stout.

If you know these cars, you know what to look for, and this has all the engine
upgrades for reliability.

I know $19750 is a strong price for a 2002 Boxster,
but this one is super clean, and arguably with engine
improvements, better than from the factory.

I'll consider cash offers, but no low balls, I'll just keep it for a family member.

Great car with all the right stuff, You do have a strong price but why not?

Best of luck with your sale!

Nice car, GLWS. You state that, "The core of the rebuild had suffered a bent rod due to a AOS failure/hydrolock at 40K miles." But the car has 11,700 miles on it. I am reading something wrong?

I had rebuilt the engine from the above rod bent core --
then subsequently found a roller with 11K miles needing a new engine.

At one time I had 6 engines forsale, this was the last of that batch that hadn't sold.

When I saw this 11k mile car in need of an engine -- I put 2 and 2 together to get 5 :-)

I've been driving it off and on, the engine feels pretty stout. It's still in the break in period, so I only wind it up to 4K rpms.
When we had bench tested it pulled 225/230psi per cylinder cold with 1-3% leak downs cold.
My butt dyno concurs.

Daughter has decided she wants something a bit more substantial

12000 miles and running like a dream.

Bump for price drop
