31k-Mile 1997 Porsche Boxster Five-Speed
Upon debut in the 1997 model year, the Boxster – Porsche’s first new model in close to 15 years – was an instant success not only for its nimble handling and 550 Spyder-inspired looks but its excellent build quality as well. The Boxster aped the 550’s engine arrangement as well opting for a mid-engine layout (the first mid-engined Porsche in 20 years), providing a low center of gravity as well as nearly perfect weight distribution.This design gave the Boxster its unique handling characteristics, commended for having uncanny precision, drawing anyone fortunate to sit in the driver’s seat in for a drive. A five-speed manual and MacPherson strut suspension make for a deeply satisfying driving experience. This first-generation Stuttgart-built “986” Boxster is the perfect introduction to any aspiring Porsche or sports car enthusiast, with a stylish, well-preserved Arctic Silver Metallic on Black combination and low CARFAX verified mileage this particular Boxster is an excellent candidate.
