Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by, is this 2005 Porsche Boxter that has been driven only 15,323 miles since new. This 987-series Boxster was originally sold in Alberta, Canada and was imported to Texas in August 2021. Features on this burgundy Boxter include five-speed manual transaxle, active rear spoiler, Michelin tires and tan leather interior. Included with the sale are service records, clean CARFAX report and clear Texas title in the seller’s name.

The body is coated in Carmon Red metallic and is complemented by a black cloth power-operated roof. 3M paint protection film covers the front end, mirror caps, windshield frame, and the areas below the door jambs and in front of the rear wheels. Exterior features include bi-xenon headlamps, active rear spoiler and polished center-exit exhaust outlet.

Aluminum 17-inch wheels are wrapped in staggered-width Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

The Sand Beige cabin features heated leather bucket seats with matching door panels, dash and carpeting. This Boxter is well-equipped with AM/FM/CD audio system, auto-dimming mirrors, automatic climate control, power windows and cruise control.

Instrumentation is centered around an 8K-rpm tachometer that is complemented by a 280-kmh speedometer and auxiliary gauges for the fuel level and coolant temperature. The digital odometer reads 24,660 kilometers (15,323 miles), which is in line with the mileage shown on the CARFAX report.

Though hidden here, the mid-mounted, 236-horsepower M97 2.7-liter flat-six has received an oil change and inspection under current ownership. A five-speed manual transaxle drives power to the rear wheels.

Stopping power comes from Porsche’s famous anti-lock disc system.

The CARFAX report begins in June 2005 and shows the car’s accident- and damage-free history. The sale includes service records from current and prior ownership.
