I have all the Boxsters I need, but if I didn't, I'd be buying this: 1999 Porsche Boxster 3.4L swap, w/nice mods.

Can't build it for that, what a great car and an amazing deal for someone.

This is exactly what I want but its 3 months and the sale of a rental property too early. Wow!

Is it just my monitor, or does it look like the lips on those wheels have multiple bends/flat spots?

Somebody has Photoshoped the crap out of the car. It ain't that shiny.

Maybe some 'sharpening' of the photo, but a smooth black car with a professional polish does look like that on a bright sunny day. Here's a 200% crop of that picture (zoomed in x2):

You may be right, but with my Photoshop skills, my time would be better spent on the car with a polisher. That's a complex background reflection to create.

No photoshop. All photos were taken with an Iphone SE and uploaded straight from the phone. Maybe a slight basic color enhancement on the phone but barely noticeable (and it does way more for bright colors than it does to black). I polish the car once or twice a year with a buffer and it comes out looking deep and shiny. Maybe that photo was taken shortly after. I do agree that it looks glossier than in all the other photos and that's why it's one of my favorite pics.

I think the bends on the wheels is from resizing the photos prior to posting them on 986forum.com (which doesn't have auto resizing for uploaded pics). Notice that all the "bends" are at the top of the rims.

Cool.  I'd love to take it off your hands, but the timing isn't great for me right now.  Planning to free up some garage space, but can't do so for 30-60 days.

I love it.  I have a speed yellow 00S, oem type 2 aero kit and a factory painted console sitting in my garage.....  I'd lovd to have this one instead.  Those sport seats in that color.....  oh yes.
