SPOTTED: THE £3K PORSCHE BOXSTER
Boxsters are getting seriously cheap, and we're getting seriously tempted
It's a car you should go in with your eyes wide open, then, but as long as its service history suggests it's been looked after well during its 93,000-mile life it might just be a bargains. Especially since, with a bit of haggling and the sacrificing of that private plate, you might just get your hands on it for a number starting with a two.
an even cheaper Boxster currently in the PH classifieds, too, but that suffers from a) being an auto and b) having done 150,000 miles. Plus a couple of tears in the soft top.
Of course, if you've got a 986-gen Boxster-shaped itch that only the extra power of the 255hp 3.2-litre S you'll need to fork out a little extra moolah, but you can still get into one for little more than £6K as this V-plate Boxster S shows.
Judging by the recent weather, we may have already had the best of the summer, but the Boxster has a perfectly decent roof and, for the brave buyer, this might well be the cheapest way into the ownership of a (relatively) modern Porsche.
