Hello and welcome Neil.

I am not sure about the economics of buying 2nd hand versus importing but as far as spec goes the basic requirements are:

1. Bigger wheels 2. Leather 3. Aircon

After that you have the "nice to haves": Porsche sounds upgrade etc.

Cheers, James

Don't do either. Buy a 993 instead :)

Exactly. Faster and better looking...a 2.7 at 25k will have about the same mileage as a 993 at 25k too.

I'm a mere mortal and bought a 993, and you know what? I don't think I care really! We only live once and you don't get your youth back!!

Buying a boxster.

1/ If you buy a nice used 2.7 now - you can enjoy it right away.

2/ If you want an import only consider a car that is physical-that you can touch. don't do deposits on cars on their way.

3/ Buy what you like and enjoy it. Boxsters are good cars and sellwell secondhand. Both used or import will depreciate, we all know that, just buy a good one and enjoy.
