Looks like this thing thing has been well kept. A testament to how nice these cars stay when taken care of.

Kjk - beautiful car you have there. I realize that you have the beautiful natural brown interior, but note to tan, gray and boxster red interior owners: those black and aluminum accent pieces and floor mats are how you can really make the interior pop. If I am not mistaken, I believe that is a 2-tone factory code interior. But, if I had an all tan, gray or boxster red interior, I would immediately go about sourcing replacement bits and pieces of interior trim to copy that design.

Thanks for response. The factory mats are after market but the aluminum trim are from the factory. Can see more pictures here if you would like at my listing

Not completely surprising. Way too many miles to be considered a "collectible" at this present time. Still many sub-20K mile examples out there.

It was listed for a while at 55K, no takers so probably in line.

I'm sort of surprised. Sort of blows away the theory many were working from that "S" cars are more valuable.

Porsche didn't help either. Base price of an '05 S Cabrio = 141,200, but an '04 with just PCCB & X50 (standard on S) was 154,230.

Mileage at this point overwhelmingly trumps rarity. With history as a guide that should change with time.

Carlo - that's why I think this was a well-bought car. The new owner should never lose a dime.

Probably, but it depends on how many miles he/she puts on it.
