2002 Porsche Boxster S (986)

Tidy 986 series 3.2 S with manual 'box; glass rear screen upgrade and extensive specification; RMS and intermediate shaft seals replaced and good accompanying history inc 12 stamps

Supplied new by Dr. Ing.H.C.F. Porsche of Stuttgart in March 2002 this eye catching 986 series Boxster S features the range topping 3.2 litre flat six engine driving the rear wheels via 6-speed manual transmission and is finished in desirable Cobalt Blue Metallic (L3C8) with contrasting Black Mohair hood and rides on a set of attractive 18inch split rim Porsche Sport Design staggered fitment 7J and 8.5J alloy wheels (XRL). It was produced at the Valmet factory in Finland (502).

The options code sticker both under the bonnet and inside the service book reveal the car to have quite an extensive (and no doubt expensive) options list including - Arctic silver centre console (XJB), Arctic silver central bracket (XKW), Arctic silver instrument surround (XKX), roll-over bar painted in exterior body colour (XMK), Arctic silver dashboard trim strip (XNY), Porsche crest embossed head rest (XSC), gear lever knob with aluminium top (X97) and handbrake lever with aluminium inlay (X98).

The spec list goes on to include, stronger battery (197), automatic anti dazzle rear view mirror and rain sensor (265), automatic anti dazzle door mirrors (266), head lamp washer (288), 8-way electric seat left and right (437 & 438), radio preparation (441), wheel caps with coloured Porsche crest (446), PSM – Porsche Stability Management (476), Lumbar support RHS (513), driver’s seat memory (538), wind deflector (551), top-tinted windscreen (567), activated charcoal filter (571), automatic air conditioning (573), storage box inc. speakers (584), lumbar support LHS (586), Litronic (Xenon) headlights (601), PCM Porsche Communication Management screen with navigation, telephone, radio & cassette player (662), preparation for CD changer (689), leather door and dash panels (981), leather seats (983) in black.

Quite the spec, and obviously a well loved car having covered an indicated 90,259 miles by its six former keepers and current, our vendor who has enjoyed the car over the summer for jollies and jaunts with the roof down. The history file for this late, pre-facelift 986 includes the V5C, owner’s pack and service book revealing 12 stamps, the last in July 2016 at 81,405 miles plus a further 2 for brake fluid, 2 for long life condition reports and 1 for an air bag check in 2006.

Furthermore, in a separate folder we find a tome of old invoices for parts and maintenance plus 11 old MOTs and a purchase invoice plus sales listing dated 2011 when the car had covered 66,429 miles and cost £11,995. Invoices of particular note include a replacement black hood with glass rear screen in May 2010 at a cost of £775, clutch kit and air flow meter in March 2010 at 57,126 miles costing £1,376, replacement RMS and intermediate shaft seals in January 2011 at 57,590 miles by NineX Motorsport of Maidenhead at a cost of £1,141, a new alternator in 2012 and more recently replacement brakes in April 2019 and brand new pair of new Bridgestone Potenza rear tyres have just been fitted.

Presenting well and looking the part, the car has worn its age and miles well with few marks to the body and interior. Starting promptly as we moved it around for these shots and video the only foible we noted was an exhaust tinkle sounding like a loose heat shield or clamp, readily rectified no doubt but we’d prefer you to make your own minds up.

That aside, the car looks ready to be enjoyed with an MOT valid until September 2022 with just one advisory noted for damage to the windscreen – this has since been replaced under the vendor’s car insurance.
