Welcome & great looking Boxster.

If this is your first Porsche, you'll find parts are going to be expensive, esp compared to Japanese cars. No need to throw $$$ at stuff that doesn't need replacing. Change the oil. Inspect the serp belt and replace if it looks cracked. Change plugs and coils if you don't know their history. Then save a $1000 for the items that will crop up that you didn't expect. Many items will give you a hint they're failing - the water pump will drip and you'll smell antifreeze, the AOS will leave soot in the exhaust tip and will consume a bit of oil, etc. If this is not your daily driver, you should be able to catch these items as they start to fail and fix them on your schedule.
