“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.”
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.
Our hand selected Boxster S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Agate Grey, a connoisseurs Porsche colour. The striking 20-inch Sport Techno lightweight alloy wheels finished in metallic silver with coloured Porsche crests are the perfect contrast to the Agate Grey paintwork. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front and 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.
The special order extended Carrera Red Natural leather interior covers the dashboard, centre console and door cards. The Boxster S comes with hard back sports seats that have 3-stage seat heating and electric backs. All of the interior leathers are in excellent condition and provide a perfect contrast to the Agate Grey bodywork. 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 PCM 3.1 touchscreen system that controls many optional features of the car (Navigation, BOSE Digital Surround System, DAB, 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 315bph and 273ft-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 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 Cayman S with these options selected from the factory along with PDK. They enable the Boxster S to accelerate faster, 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds instead of 5.0 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 forces as they act on the vehicle.
Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our Boxster comes fitted with the 20-inch Sport Techno lightweight alloy wheels finished in metallic Silver, 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 high performance tyres with lots of tread remaining.

The last service was completed at 41,943 miles in February 2019 and it was a Minor service including inspection, all filters, drive belt changed and brake fluid change, as well as a 111 Point Inspection to renew the Porsche Warranty.
