An exceptional Porsche Boxster S 3.2 with 36,547 miles and full Porsche history.
Sports chassis, rigidly tuned springs, shock absorbers and stabiliser bars, Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP), Porsche Stability Management, roll-over protection, dual cargo areas, electric convertible top, automatic climate control. Factory options; Metallic paint, full leather interior, NCO Crest embossed in headrests, CD storage, CDR22 Sound System, wind deflector. Dealer accessories; Tracker anti-theft device, tailored carpet mats.
Finished in factory optional Lapis Blue Metallic, (Code L3AB), the original paintwork is simply incredible owing to regular professional paintwork preservation treatment and having been strictly garaged from new with dry usage only. The incredibly low mileage of 36,547 miles covered by just two fastidious owners is entirely evident in the condition of this example, whereby even meticulous scrutiny will find nothing other than a miniscule touched in stone chip to the rear quarter. A spotlessly clean underside will greet those wishing to carry out a ramp inspection. The UV-resistant hood in optional Metropole Blue is perfect in both operation and condition, and the rear screen is perfectly clear with only one small mark. All trims sections and badges are as new and the supplying Porsche dealer sticker is displayed in the windscreen. An exceptional car in a condition far superior to the usual offerings, one of the best without question.
Typical Porsche quality is to be expected in this well-appointed sports car cabin space. The Metropole Blue full leather upholstery (Code E3), an expensive option when new and almost black in appearance, has remained in beautifully clean condition with virtually no wear visible. The carpets are spotless having been protected from new by tailored Porsche over mats, and the steering wheel displays natural prominent veins, a feature lost on higher mileage examples. Beautifully clean dual cargo areas reflect the minimal use and the factory build sticker to the bonnet underside and Mobil 1 sticker in the rear compartment bolster this cars total originality. Effortless folding of the electric hood transforms this every day roadster into something truly special, with endless scope for open top enjoyment and exhilaration.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with the robust flat six Porsche Boxer Engine, namesake to the Boxster, this powerplant requires little introduction. Controlled by the Motronic ME7.2 engine management system, Porsche Engineers developed 248hp from the 3,179cc unit to allow 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds with a top speed of 161mph! The punchy raw sound delivered from the standard exhaust system is guaranteed to set the pulse racing. The 6-speed manual transmission is short and incredibly direct with immediacy exactly as you would expect from Porsche.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original 17in twist spoke alloy wheels with Porsche centre crests are in perfect order, and fitted with the correct brand and size Michelin Pilot Sport tyres all round, 205/50 ZR17 and 255/40 ZR17 front and rear respectively with good tread levels. The ABS assisted braking system incorporates 4-Wheel ventilated and cross-drilled discs with 4-piston fixed monobloc callipers. The correct Boxster S specification Porsche Red painted callipers are clearly visible through the spokes and hint towards the racing pedigree infused within the cars genes.
