This exceptional Porsche Boxster has covered 40,100 miles from new and is finished in iconic Porsche Guards Red, (Code L84A). The factory original paint finish is virtually flawless with a deep gloss polished shine and uniform finish. Nothing other than a tiny touched in scratch to each door mirror edge is worthy of mention. The beautiful lines and factory panels are perfectly straight with no dings and all trim sections and badges are perfect. The previous owner wanting to upgrade the Perspex rear hood screen to the heated glass variant opted for a brand-new hood altogether in November 2021! Underside inspection reveals the unspoilt condition and all consumables and the exhaust are in excellent condition. A truly exceptional example in every respect.
Typical Porsche quality craftsmanship is found in this example, preserved to the highest level having covered such low mileage. The full leather seats in Black, (Code G1), are in superb order with firm and shapely bolsters and the matching doors cards are immaculate. The driver seat outer bolster shows nothing more than some very light wear lines to the hide. The fascia and leather covering to the steering wheel is unworn and all equipment and functions operate perfectly. An upgraded JVC CD player has been fitted. Beautifully clean dual cargo areas contain the warning triangle and original Porsche tool roll. Originality seekers will note the all-important factory option label attached to the bonnet underside, Mobil 1 sticker to the inner boot lid and factory stickers in the door apertures. A beautifully well cared for interior.

The ABS assisted braking system incorporates 4-wheel ventilated discs with 4-piston fixed monobloc callipers and a full brake overhaul with new discs and pads carried out in 2021.
