Redpill me on 1998 986 Boxsters. This had the double row IMS so I'm not worried about that. Any other major issues to look out for? These things are now cheaper than fucking Miatas of the same year and I can't figure out if there's a reason or everyone's just lost their damn minds.
>>
>>20946671
Not too expensive to buy but still very expensive maintenance. Plus they're barely quicker than a similar year Miata.
>>
>>20946671
the double row ims bearing has about a 1% chance of failure, vs the later ones which had 10% chance of failure (I remember the numbers from the US class action lawsuit regarding it)
all these IMS bearings fail, because even the double row ones are essentially skateboard bearings (at least seal-wise) with engine oil on one side, and bearing grease on the other
over time these seals degrade and the engine oil will flush away the grease the bearing needs, the bearing will function for a time when lubricated with engine oil but eventually it will wear out and this can cause the engine to explode

I believe ALL porsches of this era have either had the IMS fixed, have grenaded, or are running in this "broken seal/no bearing grease left" state, and as such are running on borrowed time

>>
>>20946671
As much as I love these the problem remains the cost of a replacement engine exceeds the purchase price of the car, sometimes now by 2x. IMS is overhyped but there are other failure modes that result in total engine replacement and any of them are catastrophic from an ownership perspective.

truth is 986 boxsters don't look good at all. They drive great though. If you can get over its looks its a great fucking car. I only find these newer boxsters attractive

If it's a Porsche and it's fast, it isn't reliable (911 Turbo)

If it's a Porsche and it's reliable, it isn't fast (924, 944, Boxster)

If it's reliable and fast, it isn't a Porsche. (everything else)

It used to be cheap, fast and reliable, but there are no cheap Porsches, thanks boomers.

Anyone ever own a 997? Is the 997.2 worth the money over the first revision?
>>
>>20950473
.2 introduced the 9A1 engine family, which isn't affected by the IMS bearing failures and other M96/M97 flaws anymore. It's also mandatory to get a .2 if you're looking for an automatic, as it introduced the PDK and the .1 still uses the old tiptronic slushbox.
>>
>you will never own a 959

>>20950519
jethuth chrithe why would anyone use a typewriter for serious work?
>>
>>20950493
I'd get a manual. Although the pdk certainly is cool, I enjoy rowing my own gears and while I like performance, I'm not necessarily after the slight improvement from lap times a dual-clutch can offer. Same reasoning with the convertible vs. coupe-- I'd get the convertible because I miss my old Miata.
Anyway, from my research the main differences between the pre- and post-facelift models are LED exterior lights and the new direct-injected engine. Not really a distinction I care that much about, I think I'll go with the 997.1 because they're a lot cheaper. The sooner I can get one the better after all.

>>20950551
The biggest disadvantage of the .1's engine is that while the bearing only has a <1% failure rate, it's much harder to prevent than on something like a 996 as i requires a full engine teardown instead of being something you may as well replace along with the clutch.

Get one that's actually been driven instead of a garage queen and be very careful of metal shavings in the oil.

Ok, I'll keep that in mind. I'm not afraid of high mileage cars, having owned 2 bimmers with over 200k miles. A 100k mile porsche can hardly be worse

Educate yourself before you post stupid fucking shit like this.
The NA engines in 996 and pre-facelift 997 are not great designs (except for the GT3). The failures range from IMS to crankshaft issues, heat exchanger, cylinder bores....

The M96 engine (in naturally aspirated cars) works like this: the engine consists of four parts. Four camshafts are driven by a total of five chains: A duplex roller chain drives an intermediate shaft located below the crankshaft. From this intermediate shaft, a duplex roller chain at the front and rear of the engine leads to the exhaust camshafts. These drive via a simplex roller chain to the associated intake camshaft, which works with a camshaft adjustment (Vario Cam).
A complicated and shit design.

Turbo models, GT2 and GT3 have the „Metzger engine“ in which there are 2 duplex roller chains from the intermediate shaft directly to the intake and exhaust camshafts. The Metzger engine is far more reliable.

Tl;dr: get fucked

A 987.2 2.9 will be non direct injection. Match that with the manual gearbox and you have a very reliable understressed car.

Turbo Models and GT3: Reliable, borderline bulletproof because based Metzger blocks
Everything else: Overly complicated with chance of catastrophic engine failure
