Finished in stunning and very rare factory Speed Yellow, (Code L12H), the awesome vibrant paint looks superb and is virtually flawless. The uniform finish and undamaged bodywork are commensurate with such a low mileage well cared for example, and all trim sections and badges are near perfect. The often sun-bleached headlights are crystal clear and reflect the strict garage storage. The UV-resistant hood is perfect in operation and fully intact with no damage and a clear rear screen with just one small mark. Underside inspection suggests dry usage only and all consumables and the exhaust are in excellent condition. 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 driver enjoyment. The factory optional full leather seats in Black, (Code X4), have remained in beautifully clean condition with firm structure and wear free bolsters. The carpets are spotless having been protected from new by genuine Porsche carpet mats. All controls and functions operate perfectly including the ice-cold air conditioning and electric seats, and only very light scratches to the side of the centre console can be seen. Beautifully clean dual cargo areas reflect the minimal use and extended care this car has enjoyed. 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. 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 mid-engine configuration. Controlled by the Motronic ME 7.2 engine management system, Porsche Engineers developed 220hp from the 2,687cc 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 and full Porsche service history offers piece of mind. The 5-speed manual transmission has a short shift and is incredibly direct exactly as you would expect from Porsche.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory upgraded 18in Porsche Design alloy wheels have optional wheel caps with coloured Porsche crest. The wheels are free from curb damage with minor paintwork imperfections to the outer rim barely visible. Quality branded 225/40 ZR18 and 265/35 ZR18 tyres are fitted front and rear respectively with masses of tread remaining. The ABS assisted braking system incorporates 4-Wheel ventilated discs with 4-piston fixed monobloc calipers. The Porsche badged calipers are clearly visible through the spokes and hint towards the racing pedigree infused within this car’s genes.
Registered new on 10th May 2002 by Main Dealers, The Porsche Centre Wilmslow, this example has covered just 37,421 miles with just two former keepers in total. Full Porsche main dealer service history consists of the service book displaying nine stamped entries. The most recent entry was a major service at The Porsche Centre Teesside in December 2018 at 37,025 miles, at which time all six coil packs and spark plugs were replaced. An invoice from The Porsche Centre Teesside for £1,004.48 in the history file details this work and the service tag is even still attached to the dipstick! All handbooks, guides and dealership literature are contained in the Porsche leather wallet and there are two original keys. Completing the history file is service checklists and previous MOT certificates as well as an original hardback Boxster sales brochure. A cherished registration plate remains with the car.
Hugely desirable in the rare colour of Speed Yellow, this low mileage, low owner and meticulously maintained example is guaranteed to impress in every respect.
