98 Boxster-Blown Motor-only 30K miles
 
1998 Boxster with blown motor - most likely IMS.

Yes, only 30K miles, not a mis-type.

Left the house this weekend with 30,018 miles, went for a ride, popped the motor on the way home.

2nd owner, always garaged and covered, no dents, no dings, all wheels have zero curb rash, tires very good to excellent, interior excellent.

Make me a reasonable offer while I'm still in mourning.http://986forum.com/forums/uploads01...1450196532.jpg

what exactly "popped"?

JBCJR 12-15-2015 09:10 AM

"Popped" is a euphemism for catastrophic failure. As I said, I believe it was the IMS, could have been a timing chain tensioner let go and allowed it to skip time. Regardless, motor is locked solid.

It's a manual correct? Can you post a couple interior photos please ?

JBCJR 12-21-2015 08:18 AM

Yes, it is a 5-speed. No interior photos here at work. Will try to post when I get home tonight.

JBCJR 12-21-2015 11:25 AM

Interior photos as requested. Kind of dark, because like I said, covered in the garage.http://986forum.com/forums/uploads01...1450729504.jpg
