Contact us for any information regarding this process.

This 1997 Porsche Boxster was first sold through the Exclusive program at Sonnen Porsche in San Rafael, California, and was acquired by the current owner in 2016. The car is finished in Arctic Silver with a matching hardtop over special Boxster Red Leather and is powered by a 2.5-liter flat-six paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. Additional equipment includes 17? twist-spoke wheels, four-piston brake calipers, a polished stainless-steel exhaust tip, dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable seats, a six-speaker audio system, and a rear windscreen. Service since the car was last listed on BaT in September 2018 has consisted of replacing the tires and battery. This 986 Boxster has 9k miles and is offered with manufacturer’s literature, tools, service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title.

The car is finished in Arctic Silver (L92U) and was delivered new with an optional matching hardtop as well as a polished stainless-steel exhaust finisher. The paintwork and exterior trim are shown up close in the photo gallery below.

Silver 17? Carrera-look twist-spoke wheels are mounted with 205/50 front and 255/40 rear Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires that show 2018 date codes.

The special-order Boxster Red (MA) interior features bolstered seats with leather upholstery over matching carpeting and a black console and steering wheel. Amenities include power-adjustable seats, dual-zone climate control, a rear windscreen with a PCA sticker, cruise control, a Porsche CDR-210 stereo, and a six-speaker audio system.

The four-spoke steering wheel frames a 7k-rpm tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, and a combination gauge. The digital odometer shows 9,300 miles, approximately 1,400 of which have been added by the current owner.

The mid-mounted 2.5-liter M96/20 flat-six was factory rated at 201 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transaxle, and additional photos of the underside are presented in the image gallery below.
