Hardtop Added: 1998 Porsche Boxster 986

When Porsche released its mid-engine Boxster in 1997, it wasn't just the first roadster to be designed since the original 550 Spyder, but it was also the first mid-engine Porsche to hit the road after the Porsche 914, which was really a Volkswagen project if you believe the web.  Anyway, if you wanted a hardtop version you had to wait until Porsche released the Cayman in 2006 or get one with an added roof, like this 1998 Porsche Boxster 986 offered for $11,500 in Omaha, NE via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

  1. DeCuzzi or ? I love the concept, wish they made one for more of a shooting brake though .. and a model for a corvette !

  2. looks beautiful...but no mileage???

  3. Perhaps a DeCuzzi from China or might be a Zeintop, made in either South Africa or Holland.

    Seems like a lot of drama as to the history of the design.

  4. Interest! I never knew such a thing existed. Anyone know if it isremoved relatively easily? Does the softtop still live beneath? Really improves the lines of those cars for me. I was never crazy about how they looked, but this could be a nice trade off. Slick looks most days, but still a convertible when the mood strikes.

  5. Hokey Smokes, that is a great looking mod.

    Every Boxter would benefit from this.

  6. No one had ever assembled a vehicle that would go even remotely near used car dealerships those velocities", Elford included.
