Porsche Boxster 986 3.2s (2003 face-lift model) 2002
Reluctantly, it is time for our Boxster-S to find a new home.
The car was registered in December 2002 (but is a 2003 model-year face-lift so benefits from the revised styling, glass rear window etc). The last few owners (us included) have all been enthusiasts and it is a lovely example that comes with a comprehensive, documented Porsche/specialist history and Porsche certificate of authenticity.
Finished in meridian metallic, the paintwork is in beautiful condition, having been regularly detailed. The interior is also spotless, with no rips/tears to the leather and barely any signs of wear.
Amongst the factory-fit options are 18” Carrera 2 alloys (with colour-crested centre caps), sports seats, leather dash & door panels, on-board computer, Bose and rear park-assist. The car also benefits from an upgraded Kenwood DAB/USB/Bluetooth head unit and integrated TomTom sat nav.
We were very fussy when searching for this car, but it was worth the wait and has been a joy to own. During the last couple of years it has had CV boots replaced, a major service (including brake fluid & gearbox oil change), new coil packs, brake discs & pads, new A/C radiators (and the a/c pipe that runs under the driver’s side) a new key (supplied by OPC Reading) and the ignition switch replaced. Mechanically and cosmetically it is faultless; everything works as it should and there are no leaks, creaks, or strange noises.
The car comes with a comprehensive history file, all wallets/booklets, tool kit, spare wheel and both original keys. During our ownership the car has been looked after by Northway Porsche (who also undertook a pre-purchase inspection for us). The MOT (no advisories) is valid until August 2021 and it was serviced only one month ago.
The car is available for viewing in South Oxfordshire and professional inspections are welcome (although test-drives will only be offered to serious buyers with satisfactory proof of fully-comprehensive insurance).
