2003 Porsche Boxster S (986)

Appealing two owner facelift Tiptronic S example from 17 year ownership showing just 49,709 miles with considerable history

Supplied new by Porsche Centre Colchester in October 2003, this striking Guards Red (L84A) 986 generation Boxster S really does look the business with its contrasting black  Mohair hood and silver 18” 996.2 five-spoke alloy wheels (411).

The spec of this two owner, 49,709 mile example is extensive, and includes Porsche crested headrests (XSC), branded stainless steel door guards (X70), stronger battery (197), five-speed triptronic transmission (249), automatic anti-dazzle internal mirror with rain sensor (265), automatic anti-dazzle door mirrors (266), headlamp washer (288), seat heating (342), tiptronic buttons for steering wheel (432), eight-way electrically adjustable seat RH & LH (437 & 438), radio preparation (441), colour crested wheel centre caps (446), automatic speed control (454), Porsche stability management (476), driver’s seat memory (538), wind deflector (551), top tinted windscreen (567), charcoal filter (571), automatic AC (573), Xenon lights (601), park assist (635), BOSE sound (680), Becker 6-CD changer (692), Becker CDR23 radio (697), leather dashboard and door panels (981) and leather seats (983) – quite the specification!

Mounted mid-ships in this face-lift Boxster S we find the potent 3.2 litre flat-six engine which develops 254bhp (up from 247 of the pre-2002 facelift) driving the rear wheels via five-speed automatic/tiptronic transmission.  As a facelift variant, it also benefits from a heated glass rear screen, glove box, redesigned steering wheel, re-worked exhaust and intake, and re-styled front and rear lights (no longer referred to as ‘fried egg’ headlights now!).

The history file for this smart low mileage example includes the V5C confirming just one former keeper to our vendor who has enjoyed the car since November 2005, the owner’s pack and service book revealing eight service stamps, the last by Autostrasse Porsche Specialists in November 2021 at 49,402 miles along with a further seven stamps for brake fluid changes, the last at the same time as the last service.

In addition, we also find a host of supporting invoices for routine maintenance and parts plus some 15 old MOTs and the current, valid until April 2024 which recorded no advisories.  Ready to be enjoyed the car looks uncommonly well for a Boxster of this age, no doubt down to two caring owners and low mileage.  One to buy and enjoy.
