I’m not here to claim that the 986 Porsche Boxster gets overlooked in terms of the Porsche world in general, but it maybe isn’t the first model you run to when you dial-up Porsche in your thoughts. It was a wildly successful model when it launched in the late-1990s, as it brought back memories of the 914 and got people in the door of the Porsche brand without paying 911 prices. The base Boxster in 1997 started right under $40,000, while the base 993 started at around $65,000. As the years went on the 986 became just a used car, although a used Porsche, but still didn’t get much love from the collector crowd unless it was a really special example. Today, this still holds largely holds true but they are starting to come along slowly. Let’s look at this 2002 Boxster S, as it’s a great color and has just 47,000 miles. Is it worth the premium?

I’m all for wild interiors. Give them to me all. If it is between beige or turquoise, I’ll take the turquoise any day of the week. Although the caveat here is that it has to make sense. I don’t want any Ronald McDonald-looking interior or some creation from “Crazy Rick’z House of Leather” that the fourth owner decided to go with. Today’s car, a very rare 1997 911 Turbo S, has one of those wild interiors. Although different, it misses wildly on one thing.

Back in September 2021, I took a look at a strange situation – what appeared to be an Agate Green Metallic M535i stuck in the midst of a buy-here, pay-here lot full of modern cars:
Well, the image above should tell you we have something similar again. Maybe this is a thing? Perhaps, though while this appears to be the same dealer, this time the car is not quite the same. It is a European-specification model, but while I wasn’t sure if that one was a real M535i last time around because there was no VIN supplied, we have a VIN on today’s car and it’s a DC31 model – meaning it’s not an M535i (which were DC51, 61, 71, or 81 in LHD). It is wearing the M Technic body kit and some pretty wild offset BBS RZs it appears, so let’s take a look at what you are getting:
