Pretty sure there is at least one guy on here with over 320,000 miles on his.

Edit: Links, more than one!

My chassis has 245,000 miles.

Original engine with original IMS failed at 204,000 miles. I bought it with the blown engine and built it into my Spec Boxster race car.

I started the 300,000 mile club but nobody wanted to join.



BTW this is also a 2001 base model.

166K and still going strong. Sometimes it feels like coming on here is like going to "Dr. Google" I might be better off just driving and enjoying it then worrying about all of the "what ifs" Not really though - this place is full of very kind people who know and love these cars.

Pedro has in the high 200's last time I saw. 300K club sounds not unlikely from what you guys are posting here.

Marc in a 2.7 doubled that number and then sold it on. Never inside the engine, trans or clutch.
