1999 Boxster with 3.4 liter 996 Conversion featured in Porsche Panorama

1999 Boxster - Arena Red/Grey Full Leather
3.4L Engine Swap “Panorama” documented three part series

This gorgeous garage-kept Boxster experienced complete engine failure at 14,011 miles. Instead of replacing the original 2.5 liter base engine, the owner elected to upgrade to a 1999 3.4 liter, 300 hp, Carrera engine.

The engine conversion process was completely documented in Porsche Panorama, the official publication of the Porsche Club of America, in a 3 part series written by Bill Burris that ended in February, 2011. One of the refinished brake calipers from this car was also featured on the cover of the May, 2011 issue. This Boxster was the subject of a presentation at Porsche Club's Tech Tactics West, December 1 & 2, 2012.

The car is highly optioned. Here are a few highlights;
Full leather interior
Power seats with “Memory” and lumbar support
Five gauge Carrera instrument cluster with multi-information display
Upgraded Bluetooth audio with navigation and backup camera
Litronic (HID) headlamps
Cold Air intake
Aftermarket Cayman exhaust
Boxster S center radiator
Short shift kit
Clear Bra hood, fenders, mirrors and headlamps
Swepco 201 Transmission fluid
RS683 brake flush and new fluid
Hankook V12 tires and four wheel alignment
Factory Hard Top

Current mileage 22,848

No accidents or bodywork, paint is in beautiful condition; although, in spite of the clear auto bra, there are a few small paint chips on the hood. The stock 5-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly. Convertible top retracts neatly and the back window is clear. Top was recently waterproofed and the windscreen is in good condition. The factory Optional 17 inch Wheels have no curb rash with painted center caps.

The 3.4 liter (M96) Carrera engine received all of the important upgrades, including a factory rebuilt case, the latest rear main seal and oil separator, plus an LN Engineering intermediate shaft bearing.

Car runs Mobil synthetic 0-40 motor oil. Oil and filter changed after 1k break in of new motor, again at one year and 2k miles. Most recent oil change was at 22,000 miles. All receipts, documents, and original copies of Panorama Magazines come with car, owners-manual, two original keys etc… The car has 8,000 miles since the engine swap, runs perfectly and doesn't leak a drop of oil.

For sale at 19,900 – 660 988-1226 or email joelaurand@gmail.com
