used boxster with a new engine

Recommended Posts

i was wondering if any of you guys would buy a used boxster with a new engine. these boxsters were the ones with the engine failure problem and got replaced. whats the chance of these boxster having the same problem down the line..? has porsche fixed the problem with the porous engine and sleeve thing...

I would say that it depends on who replaced the engine and how long it's been since the replacement. If a Porsche dealer replaced it, then that is good, and it may even still be under warranty. Also, if the newer engine has more miles on it, say 20K?, the less likely any new problems should occur. From what I've read, these engines tend to have early-life failures not from wearing out.
