 Selling my 1999 Porsche Boxster. This car has a rare hardtop (worth $2,000) that pops off and has a functional soft top underneath. Perfect for someone who owns cats and is worried they'll damage the top but still wants a convertible (that's why I bought it). Car has a few scratches and dings that are typical of a car this age. Passenger door only unlocks from the inside and the radio is missing the turning nobs but is still fully functional. Otherwise, the car's exterior and interior are in good condition for its age. Car has Automatic Transmission with Tiptronic. Mileage on it is 101,800. Car runs and drives fine, but some repairs are needed (see below). Reserve price set low to accommodate for repairs. Has a CD player, a brand new battery, an ice cold A/C, and includes original owners manual. Spoiler pops up at 60mph or can be brought up with controls inside the vehicle.

Here is a list of mechanical repairs I know this car needs.:
Spark plug tube seals (minor oil leak at seals)
Both CV axle boots (torn and need to be replaced)
Trans. shaft seals (minor trans. leak at seals)

Car is drivable in current condition, and interested parties are more than welcome to come give it a test drive (by appointment only). I asked the Porsche dealership if they thought it would make it from Texas to New Mexico and back without the repairs (since I was planning a trip), and they said yes.

Please feel free to call if you have any questions. My number is (210) 415-9377. My name is Marla.

Kelly Blue Book value for this car in its current condition is $9,815

Porsche forum claims eco-friendly 911 Blu coming to Frankfurt

Thu, 01 Aug 2013

The fiftieth anniversary of the Porsche 911 has been a nearly year-long affair, with unique tributes and even a special anniversary edition with plenty of retro throwbacks. The party is expected to continue through the end of 2013, and if one 911 enthusiast forum is right, we'll see yet another special edition model near the anniversary of the original car's September 1963 debut, when it arrives at next month's Frankfurt Auto Show.
It's called the 911 Blu, and where the 911 50 Years Edition was more expensive than a 911 Carrera S hardtop, the Blu would be an entry level special edition. That's right, a limited run car that actually slots in at the very bottom of the 911 range. According to Porsche forum, the new car would be priced at 74,600 euros ($98,718 at today's rates) or 64,750 pounds. That undercuts the price of a base 911 in Germany by nearly 16,000 euros and in the UK by nearly 8700 pounds (although to be fair, it's roughly identical to the price of a base 911 C2S in the US).
This 911 will reportedly feature a detuned flat-six with 300 horsepower and 211 pound-feet of torque.

How Porsche got Patrick Dempsey into the driver's seat for Le Mans

Tue, 27 Aug 2013

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice. Ask Patrick Dempsey and he'll likely tell you the same secret for landing a role on a hit TV show or, for that matter, driving a Porsche in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
That's because, like McQueen and Newman, Dempsey has earned his place in that rarified field of actors who also race. He's competed in Baja and Grand-Am, co-owns an IndyCar team, and this year returned to Le Mans where he and his teammates Joe Foster and Patrick Long finished fourth in the GTE-Am class behind the wheel of their Porsche 911 RSR.
It's a grueling race, and the fluid transition between drivers behind the wheel is a key element to success. Check out the satirical video below to see how Dempsey and company got ready.

Porsche teams with Delta airlines to woo VIP passengers

Sun, 15 Sep 2013

The next time you're waiting for a flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, see if you can spot a Porsche Cayenne or Panamera zipping between aircraft on the busy tarmac. The high-performance German vehicles aren't there practicing for an upcoming autocross; they are tasked with whisking some of the airline's most important customers between flights so they can keep their busy schedules intact.
Launched nearly two years ago, the program has proven popular with the automaker, airline and passengers as all benefit from the unique arrangement. Atlanta-based Porsche is able to showcase its cars to Delta's frequent-flying Medallion members, the airline is recognized for providing unusual perks to its high-value customers and those fortunate enough to be surprised with a quick lift are able to make connections without a stressful run through the terminal. Based on its success, the airline is rolling our similar programs in New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis this month.
And don't think Porsche is the only automaker working with an airline to entice its frequent flyers. Mercedes-Benz ran a program over the summer that offered purchasing and leasing incentives to MileagePlus Premier members of United Airlines, and the two are currently shuttling top fliers around Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport in the automaker's S-Class and GL-Class models.
