FS: 2001 Boxster S Seal Grey w/ Metropol Blue soft top

I'm hesitant to sell my boxster as I bought it to be a fun weekend car and occasionally autox it when not running my es miata (and the boxster is indeed fun), but I currently have my eyes set on another autox toy, so I might need to sell this one.

Background: The car currently has ~110,750 miles on it. I purchased the car last year from an elderly gentleman in Maryland and drive the car back to Florida, where it was originally purchased. It doesn't look like the car has ever seen a winter/salt. The car is currently located in the Orlando area.

The car drives like it is new, due to the fact that the previous owner replaced every suspension component on the car with a RoW M030 suspension kit at 94,200 miles. Besides the suspension, other major items that have been previously replaced on the car (with records that go back to around 2006):

-Clutch at around 72,800 miles
-IMS bearing replaced with a Direct Oil Feed bearing at 87,000 miles
-Water pump at 87,500 miles
-Air oil separator and all four o2 sensors at 94,100 miles
-All six spark plugs and tube seals at 97,100 miles
-Convertible top motor gears and micro switches at 101,000 miles
-GAHH Soft top with glass window at 106,500 miles
-Coolant expansion tank at 106,700 miles

Short list of items on the car:
-Genuine 911 GT3 driver and passenger seats
-987 Boxster S wheels (18x8 front, 18x9 rear) with new (~1000mi) Bridgestone RE71R tires
-911 GT3 adjustable lower control arms
-RoW M030 full suspension kit
-Ben006 ball bearing short shift kit
-Genuine GT2RS alcantara shift knob
-GT3 center console delete
-Litronic front headlights
-2003/2004 model year red and clear tail lights
-Evoms intake
-Secondary cat delete and muffler

I have the original secondary cats, muffler, seats (grey), center console, cup holders, shift knob, shifter, and tail lights, and these parts will be included with the car at purchase.

The only broken part on the car is the cover that goes over the passenger sun visor mirror, and a recently discovered torn axle boot on the drivers side when the car was getting an alignment.

Sale currently on hold.

Excellent school, I'm obviously an alum with that tag..

The pictures are in the South Apopka/Ocoee/Winter Garden area. I actually just got back from a trip over to UCF to pick up some things, and it's amazing how fast the campus grows, and how old it makes me feel

Note to anyone who had tried to access the google drive link that I had in my post, I fixed the link and it will now go to the album, and not an error page.

Pretty bad oversight on my part...

You should! Solid dude who left with zero bad feelings on either side. I became a big fan of him when I saw UCF play Navy last year in Annapolis. When the game ended, the UCF players surrounded the Navy players with their helmets off while the band played Navy's school song. Classy.

Also watched their players pick up and console USF and Memphis opponents at the end of last second wins. No ugly or selfish gesture, just sportsmanship.

I wish Nebraska success!

Boxster FS ??

Is the car for sale or not. It lists "sale on hold" in original post, with no price.....but no other indication it is unavailable.
If not for sale--- ad removal or update would help potential buyers.

It says sale on hold, because it's on hold. I had it posted with a price, and then edited the post to say it's on hold for sale until it goes active on BaT.

After the slight off topic conversation in the thread, I didn't want my post to bump to the top again just to say it's on hold, so I was being mindful of people actively selling their car here and only made the edit ::shrugs::
