Looking to buy and use as Daily in Ohio!

Hey all, I have been obsessed with looking and learning as much about the 986 Boxster as I can over the last two months. After spending the beginning of the year looking at fun cars I can get under $20k I landed on the Boxster.

I am 27 and live in Columbus Ohio. I plan to daily this Boxster until my wife and I decide to have kids, so I still have a few years! We frequently go out in her Wrangler with everything off and I love the open air feel but have always enjoyed smaller cars. I drive a 2019 Veloster now and my lease will be up this time next year. Sadly itís non-transferable so I guess Iíll spend the next year just window shopping and waiting.

I figured I would also use that time to really nail down what I want, and this is where you all can help. I plan to get a Boxster S around 60-80k miles. I really want Red or Blue but if itís a clean example then I could do with anything but Silver. For the winter I just plan to have a set of winter tires and thatís it.

Any advise you have is welcome, looking forward to joining the club soon.

You should define exactly what sort of a car you are seeking:

a) A fixer-upper that you can tinker with, or:
b) A ready-to-go car which requires nothing.

If b), I could perhaps become interested in selling mine as it seems to punch every one of your search parameter buttons. Not really looking to sell, so I am not highly motivated to do so. And mine would be at the very top of your price range (if not slightly above it) based upon work done to date.

I am local to you in Powell.

I think I am looking more for a project now. My wife and I have been talking and since I canít get out of my lease, I could buy one that needs a a lot of work, and then work on it until my lease is up. That would give me over a year to get it while and ready for daily driving.

Both our dads are into older cars, muscle of course, but between the two of them I have access to every tool, a lift, and a paint booth. Plus that sounds like a lot of fun fixing one up.
