A truly outstanding example of a Porsche “Boxster S” is the only way you can describe this car! From its optional colour matched hard top, a £2,700 extra, to its black powder coated wheels, encasing vented brake discs and powder coated red callipers.
Both inside and out it is probably one of the best examples on the market today, good enough for “Porsche Magazine” to do an article on it, a high a accolade in itself.
The low recorded mileage of 52.300 miles is backed up by a very comprehensive history file, complete with 11 service stamps in its service book. Along with this is a written history listing any work carried out over and above servicing, from 2006 onwards. This alone shows over £6000 worth of work being carried out in this time. All backed up with invoices and receipts in its file.
For those of you that do not know the S was powered by an upgraded 3.2-liter engine which produced 252BHP and a quoted top speed of 162 mph. The top engine offered in the base Boxster had a displacement of 2.7 with a maximum power of 220BHP and a top speed of 155 mph. Although in everyday life, a difference in top speed of 7mph is really an irrelevance, the 3.2 produces so much more torque and when coupled to the 5 speed “Tip-tronic” gearbox makes it a stunning all round car, happy on the daily grind to work, cruising down a motorway or being thrown around on an Alpine pass.
For so long these wonderful cars were shunned by the “Porsche” fraternity but now people realise just how good they are, with non-Porsche people taking advantage of what was probably one of the best bargains on the market. Now a massive upswing in values is taking place with nice examples such as this, becoming harder and harder to find in this price range.
Currently with us in storage during the winter months, the owner has decided to move it on to make room for a new purchase, so offering it at a sensible price and a fresh MOT, currently till April, if sold at his asking price.
