Here’s a nice-looking 986 generation Boxster for well under ten grand. Dark blue on gray is a terrific color combo, and a manual gearbox is a must-have for a pre-PDK model. There’s no mention of the IMS bearing having been changed, so you may have to factor that into the acquisition cost. Figure around $2500 to have it done at a specialist.
