Oh, cool. I didn't know that Porsche continued to build Boxsters in Stuttgart while also sub-contracting out to the Finland plant. I thought all production of Boxsters were contracted to them. I was just curious more so than conserned because I too would not care where the vehicle was built. I just thought that maybe the 1997 Stuttgart Boxster's were rare since I thought their German production was eliminated shortly after the early MY97's.
Are the early 986 Boxsters that were built in Stuttgart rare by any means? To my understanding, only the very early 1997 Boxsters were built in Stuttgart and all Boxsters after that have been built in Finland by another company that contracts through Porsche. So I'm assuming there's a very small number of the "Stuttgart Boxster's", but are they considered rare? :renntech:
Oh, I don't know. Anything over 50F and clear is top down weather. Great heater in a Porsche. That is why God made sweatshirts. I did notice that the heater and the AC are fantastic in this car. The AC blows super cold and the heater get's real nice and toasty. I was surprised because my dad had two 944's and their climate control systems were terrible; as it seems to be with most German vehicles. I'm very pleased with this one though!
The only thing I regret about the purchase of this car is buying it in November! It's too cold to be cruising with the top down! Months and months and months until prime convertible weather again... Bummer... :(
Haha no way guy's. I don't race and I like to appreciate the cars for how the engineer's intended them to be. Just not my cup of tea to modify cars. :) It performs great for a stock car though so I'm very pleased with it! :clapping: Heck yeah I got the fast color! :drive:
Thanks, I will try this myself and hope it's not what Loren prescribed! I have a 1997 BMW 328is as well...black on black, 128k miles and still going strong. Cheers, W. I bet! They're fantastic car's. I traded in my 328is with 112k miles and it still ran like it was new. Mine was white on tan with a 5-speed and the wood trim. I traded it in for a 1997 M3 (white on dove). :jump: Also a fantastic car. This is the stuff that I used: Im sure any brand would work though. It probably doesn't even have to be silicone based either. WD-40 would probably work well also.
Mine did the same and I also had this problem on a 1997 BMW 328is that I used to have. On both vehicles I took some silcone lubricant spray and just sprayed around the upper clutch pedal area where all the bushings and what-not are. I would have to do this every month or so in my BMW, but I'm not sure about the Porsche since I've only had it for a couple of weeks. So far I've only heard the noise once in the Porsche since I sprayed it which was the day that I bought it so I think it helped. Maybe the dealership didn't even try to lubricate it and they're just trying to dupe you into buying expensive parts or paying for expensive labor. You should try to spray it yourself and see what happens.
Thanks for the help! Too bad there isn't a Porsche dealership in my town.
Hey guy's. Well I purchased a Boxster a couple of weeks ago and I'm just now uploading some pictures for you guy's. It's a 1997 Guards Red 2.5L 5-speed manual transmission on black interior. It's bone stock and has 33,XXX miles. Almost 34k now that I've been driving it so much. :thumbup: :drive: It's a fun little car and I got it at a good price. It's just going to be a weekend car so I might not keep it for very long. For now though I'm having a blast with it! Here are some pictures.
What exactly does that mean? Is that a recall or something? Do you know what the problem is?
