Porsche Boxster

Porsche Boxster

Cabriolet, 1997


  • VIN: WP0CA2984VS621512
  • Guards Red
  • Low Milage

A sublime chassis, howling flat-six engine, and room for two adults plus their luggage make the Boxster one heck of a sports car. This 4,940-mile, one-owner Boxster – equipped with the uncommon Sport Package – is an opportunity to purchase a nearly-new example more than 25 years after it was built. Work in September 2022 includes replacement of the convertible top cables, and the clean Carfax report shows servicing in June 2021 which consisted of replacing the tires, brake rotors, fluids, and more. This exceptionally low-mileage Boxster will provide its next owner the pleasure of driving a rolling time capsule. Will it be you?

The vehicle in detail

With less than 5,000 miles on the odometer, this ultra-low mileage, 1997 Boxster, Guards Red w/ Black fabric top and Graphite Grey interior, was among the first produced at the main factory in Stuttgart. Designated with the letter ’S’ as the 11th character in its VIN number, it was car number #1512, completed on February 11, 1997. Delivered with the desirable $3,200 optional Sport Package, this 5-speed Boxster is finished with 17” Boxster Design wheels, wind deflector, sound package AM/FM stereo CD, cruise, and alarm system.

Other features include a High Amp Battery, and front and rear stabilizer bars. Finished in Guards Red with a power black fabric top, this Boxster features silver front air intakes, a top-tinted windshield, color matched, electrically adjustable, heated side mirrors, and speed-activated rear spoiler. Freshly serviced, inspected, and emission certified. Please refer to the CarFax to review the service schedule.

Vehicle History & Overview
Per the included documentation and clean Carfax report, this early Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen-built Boxster was sold to its sole, Pennsylvania-based owner in March 1997. The included factory window sticker shows an MSRP of $44,146 and options include the desirable Sport Package as well as Wheel Caps with Colored Crest. The selling dealer acquired this Boxster in August 2022 and has added less than 200 of the 4,940 miles shown. Under the selling dealer the convertible top cables and wipers were replaced in September 2022 and the Carfax report indicates a more extensive service was completed in June 2021, including replacement of four tires, fuel filter, and many vehicle fluids. A factory window sticker, owner’s manuals, tool kit, cup holder, front license plate bracket, plastic gloves and drop cloth, jack and spare tire, and Porsche key-chain are included.
