Finished in factory optional Arctic Silver Metallic (code L92U), the original paintwork is simply incredible having been protected from new by the Armourfend paint protection film and subject to regular professional valeting at the request of the one fastidious owner. 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. The UV-resistant hood in optional Metropole Blue is perfect in operation and fully intact with no damage and a clear rear screen. Mild delamination around the front windscreen to one lower corner is visible. An exceptional car in a condition far superior to the usual offerings, one of the best without question.
Typical Porsche quality and exemplary craftsmanship to be expected in this well appointed cabin space, with virtually every option ticked at the point of order! The Metropole Blue full leather upholstery (code X1), an expensive option when new has remained in beautifully clean condition with only light crazing to the leather on the driver’s seat outer bolster and natural veins. The carpets are spotless having been protected from new by tailored Porsche over mats, the driver’s side mat showing a small section of wear to prove it’s done its job! The perfect leather topped dash and aluminium fittings really do lift the interior, and all functions and controls operate perfectly. Beautifully clean dual cargo areas reflect the minimal use and extended care this car has enjoyed. 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 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 upgrade 18” Turbo Look alloy wheels with optional coloured Porsche centre crests are in fantastic order with only the rear offside wheel displaying two small scratches. Ultra low profile tyres are the highest quality Pirelli PZero 225/40 ZR18 and 265/35 ZR18 front and rear respectively with masses of tread remaining. The ABS assisted braking system incorporates 4-Wheel ventilated and cross-drilled discs with 4-piston fixed monobloc callipers. The Porsche Red painted callipers are clearly visible through the spokes and hint towards the racing pedigree infused within the cars genes.
