1999 Porsche Boxster (986)

Smart, manual 986 series 2.5 Boxster showing just 69,900 miles with attractive spec and good supporting history

Dating from June 1999, and supplied by Lindbrook Porsche of Kent this earlier, pre -02 facelift example was built at the Valmet factory in Finland (502) and features the venerable 2.5 flat-six sat amidship which develops 201bhp enough to wing it from zero to sixty in 6.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 149mph. 

Fitted here, with the desirable 5-speed manual 'box the car is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic (L92U) with contrasting black leather interior and electric Mohair hood with plastic rear screen. We note the car is fitted with the following options, 17inch Carrera-look twist spoke alloys, staggered fitment (396), CD compartment (424), coloured crest wheel centre caps (446), 6-speaker sound system (490), wind deflector (551), front centre console - yes, this was an option! (581), storage box atop engine cover in the cabin (584), On-board computer (659), Becker CDR-22 stereo (695), leather door panels and dash (981) and pleated leather seats (982).

Showing just 69,900 miles the car has covered a low mileage for its age and presents well, evidently having been well looked after by its lucky owners.  The history file includes the V5C, owner's pack and service book with 6 stamps (+ 2 hand written entries), the most recent stamped service being in September 2020 at 69,849 miles plus a further 3 stamped brake fluid changes, 4 stamps for long life guarantee condition reports and 1 for airbag system checks.  Furthermore, we find an impressive 17 old MOTs on file in addition to the current MOT valid until January 2022 with no advisories recorded and a selection of invoices dating back to 2010.  Works of note include a recent £615 spend in October 2019 on 6 new coils, cylinders 1-3 spark plug tubes and cylinders 1-3 variocam solenoids, cam chain and slippers by RJC Automotive of Berkshire, invoices for the purchase of these parts and a new air mass sensor in July 2020.

A look through the MOT history shows the car has covered only approximately 16,000 miles in the last 16 years, which is not much, the car is clearly crying out to be used and enjoyed more often - so get busy with those bidding fingers on the keyboard and become the next owner of a rising star in the Modern Classic world, a properly enjoyable and affordable yet practical Porsche.
