Update – This Porsche Boxster S was sold exactly one week after it was published on Go Fast Network. If you are selling a car that is worthy of Go Fast Network, tell us about it in the comments below and we’ll consider posting it.
I can’t handle my 2 year-old hassling me for a ride in Daddy’s cool car anymore. There’s just no room for a baby seat in a 2 seat mid-engine cabriolet.
It’s time to sell my 2000 Porsche Boxster S and buy something more practical. Something with four seats and more appropriate as a toddler hauler. Like a 911.

Some general comments about my 2000 Porsche Boxster S:
- Just over 60,000 miles.
- Six-speed manual transmission.
- Color: Arctic Silver.
- I’m embarrassed to admit this but my car has never been on a track – although it is awesome in the NC mountains. If you buy this car, I’ll draw you a map of a couple of the best hidden drivers’ roads in the NC mountains.
- Never been in an accident.
- 3.2 Liter Flat 6 “Boxer” engine puts out 250 horsepower. This engine is way more powerful than the 2.7 liter in the standard Boxster. If you are Boxster shopping, make sure you test drive an “S” model, too. The difference is night and day – you won’t even consider the base model after driving the “S.”
- The wheels are upgraded 18-inch SportTechnos.
- The “S” model brakes are “Big Red” Brembos and are staggeringly good at what they do.
- I’m including the original hard top with a rear window defroster.
- Underneath the hard top is an upgraded convertible soft top. Unlike the original soft top, which had a plastic rear window, this new top has a glass rear window with an integrated window defroster. I upgraded it a couple of years ago. Hendrick Porsche did the work.
- This Boxster S was ordered with the optional rear windowed wind deflector.
- The original “fried egg” halogen headlights with the ugly orange turn signal lenses have been replaced with genuine all-clear Porsche 911 Litronic HID (xenon) headlights. I’ve still got the original headlights if you’d prefer to downgrade to the originals.
- The orange side markers have been replaced with the genuine Porsche European clear versions. I’ve still got the ugly orange ones if you’d prefer to downgrade to the originals.
- The taillights with the orange panels have also been replaced with the genuine Porsche European red/clear versions. I’ve still got the ugly originals again if you’d like to downgrade (see a trend here?).
- The original gold Porsche hood crest has been replaced with an OEM hood crest that has been stripped and plated in chrome to better match the Arctic Silver exterior paint. I’ve got the original (not ugly) gold crest if you’d prefer to downgrade to it.
- I replaced the OEM Becker CDR-220 head unit with a Clarion unit. The Clarion unit plays MP3 discs and has a hookup for your iPhone/iPod/etc… as well as connections to easily add Sirius satellite radio. I’ve still got the Becker unit if you’d prefer to keep things original and genuine Porsche. I haven’t regretted the excellent Clarion unit since the day I installed it despite being concerned originally by going non-OEM on this one.
- I’ve got both remote keys, the original toolkit/spare and the original books from Foreign Cars of Italia in Greensboro, where it was originally purchased.
- I’m the second owner and have owned this Boxster S for about 8 years. It had about 30,000 miles on it when I purchased it. I am really going to hate to see it go but I find solace in the fact that I’ll be replacing it with another Porsche.
- This Boxster S was ordered with the alumalook package.
- This Boxster S was ordered with the carbon fiber gear shift and hand brake package.
- This Boxster S was ordered with the sport package. As a matter of fact, I don’t think there were any noteworthy features that the original owner didn’t order.
- The trunk photos aren’t all that interesting but you’ll see that there’s a ton of storage – enough for two of the biggest wheeled cases you can buy – perfect for a week at the beach.
- I probably should have detailed the car and picked the leaf bits out of the trunk sills before taking these photos but I never trust photos of used cars that look like they’ve never been driven. Especially when they’re from dealers with the silly alternating stripe vacuum carpet cleaners.
