    Personal Import Into Canada

    Hello Canadian Rennteam buddies!

    My boss is moving to Toronto (place called Roselands I believe) and would love to import his 2002 986 Boxster LHD 5 Speed into Canada but has been told its impossible since the car is not a Canada model but Japanese. Being a Porsche fan he is really upset. Any advise on whether it is really that hard?
    Any one have any experience?

    Appreciate your comments!

    PS How is it driving in Toronto? Boxster be OK do you think?

    Re: Personal Import Into Canada

    Don't bother. It's definitely cheaper to sell in Japan and buy a 2002 986 in the US (then drive to Canada).

    Re: Personal Import Into Canada

    Forget about it, unless he have some story with than car otherwise he can even buy a 996 or 997 at the price he get from selling the car in Japan. Porsche is so much cheaper in US/CAN.

    Re: Personal Import Into Canada

    He is familiar with the prices, he is an American, its not about money - he just loves his car! I am going to specifically ship my 997 from Japan to the UK to sell it there - I can get nearly what I paid for it in the UK even though its two years old and I have now done 20,000 miles!
