“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 Agate Grey, an extremely popular Porsche colour. The choice body colour rollover bars elevate the look of this open-top sportscar. The striking Diamond Cut 20-inch Carrera Classic lightweight alloy wheels are the perfect contrast to the paintwork. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front Bi-Xenon 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 Hardback Sports Seats Plus in Black Leather with contrast Silver stitching, height adjustment, additional bolster support, along with optional Porsche Crest embossed headrests and 3-stage heating. This car was specified with the Guard Red seatbelts, Guards Red Sport Chrono Stopwatch and also has the matching Guards Red key to elevate the interior. The rare and highly desirable optional extended black leather with silver stitching dashboard, centre console, doors and seats are in excellent condition and provide a perfect compliment to the Agate Grey metallic bodywork. The Boxster S is fitted with the optional LED Interior Light Design Package, which adds adjustable ambient night lighting in the cabin, notably the footwells, door areas and overhead console, as well as vanity mirror LEDs. 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.

Our Boxster S is also equipped with PASM switchable sports suspension system, which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road. PASM equipped cars also sit 10mm lower than non PASM cars at all times.

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 is equipped with the extremely rare and desirable optional Porsche Torque Vectoring PTV System. This ­optional ­system­ for ­increasing­ dynamic­ performance ­and­ stability ­varies­ the ­distribution ­of ­torque­ to ­the ­rear­ wheels­ and ­includes ­a­ mechanically­ locking ­rear­ differential. ­When­ the ­car ­is driven ­assertively­ into ­a ­corner, ­moderate­ brake­ pressure ­is ­applied ­to ­the ­inside­ rear ­wheel, inducing­ an ­additional­ rotational ­pulse ­(yaw ­movement) ­around­ the ­vehicle’s ­vertical ­axis.­ This ­results ­in ­a ­direct ­and ­sporty­ steering ­action­ as ­the car ­enters ­the­ corner.­ At ­low­ and ­medium­ vehicle ­speeds,­ PTV­ significantly ­increases ­agility ­and ­steering­ precision. ­At ­high­ speeds­ and ­when­ accelerating ­out ­of ­corners,­ the ­rear­ differential ­lock­ ensures­ greater ­driving­ stability­ and­ traction ­on ­a­ range ­of­ surface ­conditions,­ including­ the wet­ and ­snow.­ The­ results ­are ­remarkable­ stability,­ excellent ­traction, ­dynamic ­cornering­ at­ every­ speed,­ with ­precise ­steering ­and­ stable ­load transfer ­characteristics. ­And,­ of ­course, ­lots ­of­ fun ­at­ every­ twist ­and­ turn – typical­ of ­the ­Boxster.

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 Diamond Cut 20-inch Carrera Classic lightweight alloy wheels, with Agate Grey metallic interior finish colour Porsche Crests. They are exactly as they left the factory, and are unmarked, free of kerbing damage and corrosion, having been fully refurbished by us. The optional Tyre Pressure Monitoring System works perfectly, letting you know the exact tyre pressure of each tyre on the Dashboard LCD display. The brakes are phenomenal, cross drilled and vented discs front and rear, with plenty of life left in them. The tyres are Porsche N-rated high performance tyres, with lots of tread remaining.
