Hi guys,
I'm doing a driving trip to Monza for a friend 50th birthday.

One of the guys is British but works in America and will be flying over to do the trip. He looked at hiring a Porsche but it's over £3k plus insurance.

We thought we could buy a cheap boxster and then just sell it when we got back. What the most reliable boxster? I'm sure some of you guys have run them! Do you think a budget of £5000 to £7000 would get us there and back lol

So best boxster for reliability and to re sell? And no we can't buy a 997.1 turbo manual and make some money selling it when it's gone up £500 in a month

Or are we mad Floor Grin

Boxster 2.7k worth that when you come back if you don't wreck it.

Wondering why you're in the 997 forum but anyway, easy to sort out Smile

Or, if you can fix the couple of small problems mentioned then you might make money on this one!

For £5K I would buy that for the summer, stick it the garage for the winter and sell it at the start of next summer - oh wait we don't have summer in Scotland Duh

I'd buy a cheap 924/944, drive the balls off of it on the way there and then fly back to the UK.

Scrap it when you get there, may pay for a beer at the airport Floor

Well it's funny you ask, but every time I ask a question on other parts of the forum 991/boxster/detailing/buying advice I only get a couple of replies. I even had one of the mods ask us not to turn the 997 section into the new 993 section but I now think it's the most popular part of the site. Plus I thought the chances would be you guys would have had one or know a friend with one.
It just shows the 997 is a real enthusiast car!!

Cheers I'll take a look at the link!
