Porsche Boxster 986 3.2 S
SOLD
With its current registered keeper since 2007 and having covered just 39,000 miles from new, this represents a rare opportunity to acquire a well maintained and well-presented example of the Porsche Boxster 3.2 S with sort after manual transmission.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION

As you would expect having covered just 39,000 miles, the wonderful 3.2 6-cylinder boxer engine pulls strongly through the rev range with a delightful and distinctive tone. Shifting through the slick six-speed manual ‘box it is clear to see why this is favoured by enthusiasts over the more common Tiptronic transmission; a true drivers’ car. To drive the car feels as fresh and tight as the low mileage would suggest.

EXTERIOR

The gleaming Arctic Silver paintwork is offset beautifully against the well-preserved, electrically folding navy roof. With many Boxsters now starting to show there age, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find such beautifully presented example. With the paintwork largely free from stone chips, there are no signs of corrosion in the areas susceptible to this. The headlights have a crisp clearness free from the usual yellowing or ‘milkiness’.

INTERIOR

Again, the general condition on the inside is testimony to the vehicle’s low mileage. With age and use the seats frequently show signs of sagging and excessive wear to the bolsters. However such cannot be said of the navy trimmed leather seats adorning the interior here, the matching navy dashboard and carpets a beautiful complement. With an array of electric goodies all functioning as intended and a fabulous Bose sound system, the Boxster makes for a very useable sports car.

MECHANICAL

Well, what can I say! The precision and poise with which the car drives provides evidence of a well maintained and mechanically sound car. Having been serviced on average every 5,000 miles, its last major service carried out at 37,140 miles and benefitting from a clutch and flywheel replacement just 3,000 miles prior to this, the car has far from fallen into neglect over the years. Add to this that there are no advisories on the MOT certificate and that an interim service will be carried out prior to sale, it’s all set for many miles of trouble-free smile-inducing motoring.

WHEELS & TYRES

Sitting on its optional and distinctive 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, the car proudly stands out above lesser spec’d cars. The tyres have good tread depth and show no signs of abuse or subjection to a heavy right foot.

IN SUMMARY

A well maintained and beautifully presented, low mileage Porsche Boxster 3.2 S benefitting from a good service history and desirable specification. With its present keeper for nearly 10 years, averaging just 1,000 miles a year since 2009 and showing only 3 former keepers, this car can rightly be considered as a solid investment as prices for good examples begin to rise.
