Finished in stunning and very rare factory Guards Red, (Code L84A), the awesome paint finish 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. A miniscule ding to the nearside front wing can be seen only on meticulous scrutiny. 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 the rear screen is clear. The expensive factory optional hard top is in excellent order with light blemishes to the front edge corners only. Underside inspection suggests dry usage only with even factory labels still visible, 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 full leather seats in Black, (Code G1), 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. 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. 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 17in Porsche Boxster alloy wheels have optional wheel caps with coloured Porsche crest. The wheels are immaculate and entirely free from curb damage. Quality branded 205/50 ZR17 and 255/40 ZR18 tyres have recently been fitted and are virtually unworn. The ABS assisted braking system incorporates 4-Wheel ventilated discs with 4-piston fixed monobloc callipers. The Porsche badged callipers are clearly visible through the spokes and hint towards the racing pedigree infused within this car’s genes.
Registered new on 24th November 2001 by Porsche retailer, Road Range of Liverpool, this example has covered just 30,333 miles with two former keepers in total. The exemplary condition and credentials are met with an equally impressive history file to leave in no doubt that this example has enjoyed fastidious upkeep from new. The original service book displays 14 stamped entries, all Porsche Main Dealer bar two which are the same Porsche Specialist. The most recent entry was a service carried out in January 2019 at 27,078 miles. For complete peace of mind, the IMS bearing was replaced and upgraded as a precaution in 2009 with this work carried out by the Official Porsche Centre Mid Sussex. An invoice in the history file for £2,621.96 details all this work undertaken. All handbooks, guides and dealership literature are contained in the Porsche leather wallet and there are two original keys plus the master key. Completing the history file is a huge file of MOT certificates and supporting Porsche Main Dealer service and maintenance invoices.
Hugely desirable in the iconic Porsche colour of Guards Red, this low mileage, low owner and meticulously maintained example is guaranteed to impress in every respect and represents an increasing desirable modern classic Porsche.
