“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. The Sport Design Package added design cues from the GTS, a new front and rear body kit, 20-inch Carrera S III alloy wheels and Darkened Glass Look LED Rear Tail Lights. This Sport Design Package equipped Boxster S is 30.5 mm longer due to its unique front and rear sculpted bumpers. 

Exterior
Our hand selected Boxster S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Rhodium Silver metallic, which is very similar to Polar Silver Metallic from the 993-series 911 of the 90s. The striking 20-inch Carrera S lightweight alloy wheels finished in Factory Platinum Silver are the perfect contrast to the paintwork. The GTS Sport Design Package and optional painted Rhodium Silver rollover bars enhance the exterior styling further. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front headlights and clear rear lights. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should. The Black fabric hood is in excellent condition and operates perfectly, stationary and up to 40mph. It has a heated glass screen and remote key operation.

Interior
The Boxster S comes with full black leather sports seats that have 3-stage seat heating and electric seat backs. There are no marks or signs of wear to any of the trim parts, panels or switchgear, with the leather retaining a wholly fresh appearance throughout. The sleek aesthetic is topped-off with features like the Alcantara Sport Design Steering Wheel, Alcantara Centre Armrest with Porsche Crest and PCM 3.1 touchscreen system that controls many optional features of the car (Navigation, DVD DOLBY 5.1 playback, Jukebox music storage of 10,000 tracks, Phone connectivity, Bluetooth® music streaming, music interface).

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.

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, Sport Design Steering Wheel with PDK shift paddles and the PCM 3.1 system, unlock additional shift speeds in both SPORT PLUS and LAUNCH CONTROL modes. These modes 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.

Our Boxster S is equipped with the highly desired Porsche Switchable 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.

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 best 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 lightweight alloy wheels finished in Satin Platinum from the factory, which are unmarked, free of kerbing damage and corrosion. The brakes are phenomenal, cross drilled and vented discs front and rear. The tyres are matching Porsche N rated Pirelli P-Zero high performance tyres with lots of tread remaining.

History File
Our Porsche Boxster S has a full comprehensive Official Porsche Centre (OPC) and Porsche Specialist service history, the mileage is 53,600 miles and has four previous owners from new. The last major service was at RPM Technik Porsche Specialist in December 2021 at 51,346 miles. The next minor service is due in December 2023 or 17,800 miles, whichever comes sooner. The 981 Boxster S has had a full diagnostics and engine hours check carried out by us, with excellent results, so has been carefully driven its entire life.

The Boxster S comes with 2 original Porsche keys, all tools, leather manual pack, factory Tracker, Alarm and Immobiliser. The car is HPI clear, has MOT until April 2023 and comes complete with six months warranty, for total peace of mind.
