“The Porsche Boxster S is one of the most enjoyable performance cars available at any price. Dynamically the Porsche Boxster S is still the king of the roadster brigade. No rival comes close to matching its overall balance, adjustability, composure and superb braking ability. Better to look at, better to drive, cleaner and greener and yet more powerful. The new Boxster S is a brilliant car, we could also say the same about the Cayman, but what you can’t say about the coupe is how good its roof is. Let the Boxster’s hood fold away and suddenly you’ve added a new dimension to the whole car. We love it.”
CAR Magazine, 2009
The Boxster was Porsche’s first road vehicle to be originally designed as a roadster since the iconic (and now priceless) 1950’s 550 Spyder. The flat-six, mid-engine layout in the Boxster provides a low centre of gravity, near-perfect weight distribution, and neutral handling. The 987 version of the Porsche Boxster was introduced in 2005.
The front and rear bumper were redesigned along with new front and rear lights. The side intakes and wheel arches were enlarged from the original 986 Boxster. The interior was also updated dramatically in line with the 997 series 911.
Our hand selected Porsche Boxster S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Seal Grey Metallic, an optional colour for the car. The striking 19-inch Carrera S lightweight alloy wheels have original coloured Porsche crests, and are a perfect contrast to the red brake callipers. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The Boxster S has been waxed with Autoglym High Definition Wax by us, which will help protect the paintwork and repel surface contaminants. The Metropole Blue hood has been cleaned and treated with Autoglym Hood Protector. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front and rear lights, which are free from any damage or moisture buildup. The fabric roof material is in excellent condition with no rips or tears. It folds down and raises perfectly. The rear window in the hood is glass and has heating, a benefit of being a 987 Boxster. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should.
The Ocean Blue leather seats and rest of the interior leathers are in excellent condition and provide a perfect pairing to the Seal Grey metallic bodywork and Metropole Blue convertible hood. 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 is equipped with the 3.2 litre flat six engine. The Boxster S engine produces 280bhp and 236 lb·ft of torque. The four valves per cylinder ensure smooth power delivery through the rpm range. The axle load distribution of 47:53 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.
With its compact design and low weight, the 911 derived Getrag 6-speed manual gearbox is a simple, direct way to tap into the power of the Boxster S. The manual transmission system provides short gearshift travel and precise lever movement, giving you the highest possible level of accessibility with the minimum of fuss.
Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our Boxster S comes fitted with the 19-inch Carrera S lightweight alloy wheels, which are free from damage and corrosion. The brakes are phenomenal, cross drilled and vented discs front and rear. The front and rear brake discs and pads are in good condition without any lip or corrosion. The tyres are Bridgestone Potenza RE050A N1 Porsche rated high performance items with around 5mm of tread all round.
Our Porsche Boxster S has a full Official Porsche Centre and Porsche Specialist Dealer service history with evidence of work carried out shown in the original service book and accompanying invoices. The last major service was completed at PorschaCare at 58,185 miles in March 2020, and included oil/air/pollen filters, Millers Nanotech 5w40, an auxiliary belt change, brake fluid change front brake discs/pads and an aircon overhaul including front condensers. The next service is due in 20,000 miles or 2 years time, whichever comes sooner.
The most recent brake fluid change was in March 2020 at 58k miles, the spark plugs were replaced in September 2016 at 48k miles.
The car comes complete with invoices of work carried out, original owners manual pack, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and two keys. 6 month nationwide warranty and MOT until 10 March 2021.
