“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

Background
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 facelift version of the Porsche Boxster was introduced in February 2009. The Boxster S flat six 3.4 litre engine was completely re-designed for the gen 2, it gained direct injection and a 20bhp increase to 310bhp, compared to the first generation version. This new engine was also cleaner and more efficient, resulting in the annual road tax being £340 instead of £585, a significant saving in annual running costs. The new engine does away with the Intermediate Shaft, which proved to be a weak link in pre-2009 engines, and has new cylinder coatings which are not prone to prematurely wearing or bore scoring. The front bumper was redesigned along with new front and rear lights, with the addition of daylight running lights in the front bumper. The side vents are painted in contrasting silver and the rear bumper gained a twin diffuser style lower edge to enhance the styling further.

Exterior
Our hand selected Boxster S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Basalt Black, a striking Porsche colour in any light. The unmarked 19-inch Sport Design lightweight alloy wheels finished in factory Gloss Black are the perfect pairing to the Basalt Black paintwork. The roll over bar was also specified from the factory in Basalt Black metallic paintwork. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front and rear LED 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, we have cleaned and retreated the hood with the Autoglym Hood Cleaner and Protector Kit so it will remain in fantastic condition for the foreseeable future.

Interior
The Boxster S comes with full leather sports seats that have 2-stage seat heating, Porsche embossed headrests and electric backs. All of the Black interior leathers are in excellent condition and provide a perfect pairing to the Basalt Black bodywork. There are no major 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 contrasting red seat belts, red instrument dials, red dashboard mounted stopwatch and carbon fibre door entry guards with the Boxster S logo.

Engine and Transmission
Our Boxster S is equipped with the 3.4 litre DFI flat six engine. The Boxster S engine produces 310bhp 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.

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 has been further improved with the factory fitted short shift kit, which reduces the gearshift travel and increases the precision of changes, giving you the highest possible level of accessibility with the minimum of fuss.

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.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our Boxster S comes fitted with the 19-inch Sport Design lightweight alloy wheels finished in Gloss Black, which are unmarked, free of kerbing damage and corrosion. The brakes are phenomenal, cross drilled and vented discs front and rear. The front discs and pads were recently replaced, along with the rear brake pads. The tyres are matching Porsche N rated Michelin Pilot Sport high performance tyres with lots of tread remaining.
