Hmmm... missed some action on this thread.
Buttttttttttttttttttt since you insist on the used car market, lets take a market that is more representative of Porsche sales. Namely the United States. I can tell you that a lot more cars "trade hands" in the States. For the purpose of finding indicative pricing, we can have a look at the Kellys Blue Book which is highly regarded by many in the American used car industry.
2001 911 : $44xxx - $48xxx
Firstly, I dont understand why we should be comparing a 2001 911 to a 2003 Boxster. If anything, lets have a level playing field. Therefore the price of a:
2001 Boxster : $22xxx (for the base). $27xxx (for the S version)
However, since 2003 Boxsters were brought into the picture, lets consider the blue book prices for the 2003 Boxster also.
$27xxx for the base, $32xxx for the S version.
Surely, it is evident that there is hardly any notions of similarity in the prices are preconcieved? Also, there is a huge difference in the asking prices for the regular version versus the S. This has to be considered when comparing prices.
I said it before and I say it again......many do buy the Boxster because its the only Porsche that they can afford. Without caring two hoots about its capabilities.

Your opinions differ from mine but I can respect them nonetheless. I have stated my thoughts on the matter, so I'll leave it there. If you think there are no merits to my argument that is your perogative. I certainly won't be changing my opinion. Its based on facts (which I have interpreted accordingly) and on having spoken to people with access to a market wider than that in India (no offence meant).
No aggression on my part btw.
