“Another round so quickly”, you say? Yep, there’s just too many deals out there to not at least chat about these.
Tempting Porsche #1
The first is the usual inexpensive Boxster. This is another one for under $10k. Here are some of the ad details:
86,XXX miles, Blue metallic/gray leather interior 5-speed tiptronic transmission,keyless entry,power top,windows,mirrors,&trunk.New B.F.Goodrich G-forceT/As
Can you believe that?! A “modern” Porsche for under ten grand?! Sure the color isn’t the greatest, and I don’t love gray interior, but come on, this would be a lot of Porsche fun for not a lot of money. Plus new tires.
Price: $10,000, although I would venture to bet that you could walk in with $8500 or $9000 and buy it pretty easily. At that price, you should be able to darn near drive it for free for a year if maintenance was minimal.
Tempting Porsche #2
Today’s second tempting deal is a 1979 Porsche 928. This one is a metallic black with black interior. Get this, only 85424 miles on it. Here’s some details from the ad:
Air conditioning; Cassette player; Cruise control; Power steering; Power windows; Power door locks; Power seats; Leather seats; Tinted windows; Alloy wheels
Local Portland Car*85,424 Original Miles*Pristine Condition*
Everyone in my family hates the look of the 928. Every time, and I mean EVERY single time, I point one out, someone in my family says “That’s ugly.” I’ve also heard the word “Pacer” used more than once in reference to the 928. That’s like dropping an F-Bomb to my sensitive Porsche ears. However, none of that has deterred me from liking the 928 and after my little drive in the mid-80’s 911 Turbo Look a few days ago, I have a renewed immediate interest in some of these older models. Maybe there’s a “classic car” guy in me somewhere after all.
All that to say, this 928 looks pretty amazing. Great low miles and if it checks out, could be a great driver. The only bummer part is the 5-speed manual transmission. Personally I think the best 928s were the automatics.
