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.

"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.

Interior photos as requested. Kind of dark, because like I said, covered in the garage.
