SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED
A car born of passion, a Porsche Boxster 986 with only 25,426 miles.
Sports chassis, rigidly tuned springs, shock absorbers and stabiliser bars, Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP), roll-over protection, dual cargo areas, electric convertible top. Factory options: Wind deflector, windshield green graduated tint, CDR-22 sound system, rear park assist, graphite alcantara seat inlays.
Finished in factory optional Arctic Silver Metallic (code L92U), the original paintwork is simply incredible. The uniform finish and undamaged bodywork is commensurate with such a low mileage well cared for example, and only very close scrutiny will reveal minor stone chips and faint markings, utterly insignificant. Original dealer number plates are still on display. The UV-resistant hood perfect in operation and fully intact with no damage and a clear rear screen. An exceptional car in a condition far superior to the usual offerings.
Typical Porsche quality and exemplary craftsmanship is to be expected in this well appointed cabin space. Everything is arranged according to strict ergonomic principles, ensuring maximum visibility, intuitive operation and minimum fatigue. The half leather seats with Alcantara, (Code X1), have remained in beautifully clean condition with only light crazing to the leather on the driver’s seat outer bolster. The carpets are spotless which you would expect from this low mileage example. All controls and functions operate perfectly with only minor marks to the passenger side lower dash. Beautifully clean dual cargo areas reflect the minimal use and extended care this car has enjoyed. The bonnet lid still has the original factory option sticker attached. 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, which encapsulates the powerful blend of boxer engine and classic roadster configuration. Controlled by the Motronic ME 7.2 engine management system, Porsche Engineers developed 220hp from the 2,687 cc unit to allow 0-62mph in just 6.6 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph! The punchy raw sound delivered from the exhaust system is guaranteed to set the pulse racing. The 5-speed manual transmission has a short shift and is incredibly direct exactly as you would expect from Porsche.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 6 J x 16 and 7 J x 16 light alloy wheels fitted front and rear with only the front offside wheel displaying small blemishes to an otherwise perfect set. The tyres are quality Bridgestone SO2 205/55/ZR16 and 225/50/ZR16 front and rear respectively with masses of tread remaining. The ABS assisted braking system incorporates 4-Wheel ventilated discs with 4-piston fixed monobloc callipers. The Porsche Black painted badged callipers are clearly visible through the spokes and hint towards the racing pedigree infused within this cars genes.
