2010 Boxster S Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm Boxster shopping, and have stumbled upon what looks like a great deal: a 2010 Boxster S with 30,000 miles for 28k. Based on the selling dealership, I believe it will have a flood salvage title.  


Although this is a bit outside my original budget, I can't help but give this some consideration. 


From what ive read, the single largest boxster issue is the IMS bearing. If I've understood correctly, the 2010 engine eliminated the IMS. Is that right? I've been looking through the forum for any pervasive issues with the 2010, and I'm not seeing any. 


Should i I take this to suggest that's lot of the kinks are well worked out in 2010? 


of course, I'm going to have my local independent garage do a PPI, but I'd appreciate any words of wisdom the group may have about this contemplated purchase - specificially if there are any showstoppers to be concerned about. 


Its a 6 speed manual, btw. 


Many thanks,
