“The Porsche Boxster S is an astonishing car. Faster than ever but just as capable on the handling front. The classic flat six in the Boxster S is as responsive and memorable as ever, but feels more mature. There is added throttle response, considerable thrust and a stronger feel through the mid-range. The new Boxster is brilliant and continues to remain one of the world’s most entertaining road cars. With an extravagant new look, classy interior, added accommodation, improved performance, engaging handling and improved comfort, you could argue – at the risk of upsetting the legion of 911 fans – that it is now the most complete model Porsche produces.”
Autocar, 2012

Background
The Porsche 981 is the internal designation given to the third-generation Porsche Boxster models built by Porsche, released in summer 2012. The 981 reflects the new design language from the 918 Spyder and 991 series 911, and features new and revised engine and transmission specifications. Together with a new body, the type 981 features a new chassis; 40 per cent more torsionally rigid, the front track is 40mm wider, the rear 18mm wider and the wheelbase extended by 60mm, but with a small weight reduction of 30kg. The 981 Boxster is the last to feature a boxer six-cylinder engine. The engine does away with the Intermediate Shaft, which proved to be a weak link in pre-2009 Boxster engines.

Exterior
Our hand selected Boxster S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Deep Blue. The choice GTS options such as the darkened glass LED taillights, GTS rear diffuser, GTS switchable sports exhaust black tailpipes, PDLS Bi-Xenon headlights with body-colour headlight washers really elevate the look of this open-top sportscar. The striking Satin Platinum 20-inch Carrera S III lightweight alloy wheels are the perfect contrast to the paintwork. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front PDLS headlights and rear LED taillights. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should. The Dark Blue fabric hood is in excellent condition and operates perfectly, stationary and up to 30mph. It has a heated glass screen and remote key operation.

Interior
The Boxster S comes with the optional 14-way Leather Sports Seats with lumbar support, knee support, along with optional 3-stage heating. The optional memory system stores the drivers seat position, both mirrors position and optional steering column position in each of the two original Porsche keys, plus 2 extra profiles accessed on the drivers door panel. An optional easy access function can also be enabled which moves the seat back and steering wheel up on entry/exit, making it easy to get in and out, even when you are parked in a tight space. The seat and wheel automatically return to their stored positions when you get in and put the key in the ignition. The rare and highly desirable optional extended leather dashboard, centre console, doors and seats are in excellent condition and provide a perfect compliment to the Deep Blue metallic bodywork. The optional leather Sport Design Steering Wheel displays when SPORT/SPORT PLUS and LAUNCH CONTROL are engaged, as well as having the full-size metal PDK gear shift paddles, allowing quick and effective manual gearshifts on demand. There are no marks or signs of wear to any of the trim, panels or switchgear, with the leather retaining a wholly fresh appearance throughout.

Engine and Transmission
Our Boxster S is equipped with the 3.4 litre DFI flat six engine. The Boxster S engine produces 315bhp and 266ft-lb of torque. The axle load distribution of approximately 45:55 ensures high directional stability and superb road behaviour. The engine starts cleanly when cold or hot, there is no smoke whatsoever either at startup or when driving. There are no unusual sounds or rattles when the engine is running.

Our Boxster S is equipped with the highly desired Porsche Switchable Sports Exhaust PSE system, which unleashes a more sporty sound both on acceleration and lift off. With SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode enabled, the sound increases further, with pops and crackles when you lift off the throttle. It is also fitted with the GTS sports tail pipes finished in Gloss Black.

The Boxster S is fitted with Sport Chrono Plus Package, which adds a SPORT and SPORT PLUS button that sharpen the throttle response, decreases shift speeds, hold gears for longer and blips the throttle on downshifts whilst also adding a dashboard mounted stopwatch to add to the sporting image of the Porsche.

The 7-speed double-clutch PDK transmission system provides instant changes, unleashing the power of the engine with minimal fuss. It has four selectable modes, Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Full Manual Shifting. The combination of Sport Chrono Package Plus and Sport Design Steering Wheel with PDK shift paddles, unlock additional shift speeds in both SPORT PLUS and LAUNCH CONTROL modes. These modes are only available on the Boxster S with these options selected from the factory along with PDK. They enable the Boxster S to accelerate faster, 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds instead of 4.7 seconds.

This Boxster S has the PADM dynamic engine/transmission mounts, which electronically control the oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain, especially the engine. By adapting stiffness and damping characteristics to changes in driving style and road surface conditions, the dynamic gearbox mounts combine the benefits that otherwise distinguish hard and soft gearbox mounting arrangements. For the driver, the results are tangible. Handling is perceptibly more stable under load-change conditions and in fast corners. Whenever a less assertive driving style is adopted, the dynamic gearbox mounts automatically soften to enhance comfort. You experience the best of the both worlds—uncompromisingly sporty performance in corners, yet with a high degree of comfort. The Sport or Sport Plus button enables you to switch the dynamic gearbox mounts from Normal to Sport or Performance mode. In conjunction with the optional PCM, the TFT screen in the right-hand circular instrument enables you to view the lateral and longitudinal G-forces as they act on the vehicle.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our Boxster S comes fitted with the 20-inch Carrera S III lightweight alloy wheels, finished in Satin Platinum with colour Porsche Crests. They are exactly as they left the factory, and are unmarked, free of kerbing damage and corrosion. The brakes are phenomenal, cross drilled and vented discs front and rear, with plenty of life left in them. The tyres are matching and recently fitted Porsche N0-rated Michelin Pilot Sport 4S high performance tyres, with lots of tread remaining.
