Developed alongside the Cayman, the Boxster was Porsche’s chosen champion for the mid-engined 2-seater roadster market. The name in itself is a play on words, combining elements of the car’s signature boxer engine, and roadster body style. Perhaps somewhat underappreciated in past times compared to other Porsches, the Boxster has steadily risen the ranks, gaining admirers across the globe, and rightly so.
This particular Boxster truly is a fantastic example, and proudly showcases Porsche’s design and engineering beautifully. The vehicle has been enjoyed by just 5 former keepers, covering a respectable 84k over the years. It would certainly seem that the previous keepers have shown great care to this little Porsche, as the exterior and interior present themselves beautifully.
In addition to its impressive visual condition, it would appear this Boxster has also been rather well maintained over the years and now performs brilliantly with no known faults. Evidence of previous maintenance can be found within the included service booklet, which details a small selection of previous service intervals. Included alongside the service booklet is the rest of the original book pack, previous MOT certificates, and the V5C document, ready to sign over to the lucky new keeper.
● Beautiful metallic grey paintwork
● 19” alloy wheels
● Fantastic condition, with an excellent finish
This beautiful Boxster sports a coat of metallic grey, which offers plentiful shine, with only a small handful of minor blemishes.
Accompanying the silver paintwork, are the 19” alloy wheels, which suit the car brilliantly, and are somewhat uncommon amongst Boxsters. The wheels present themselves very well, with only minor blemishes noticeable upon close inspection, and come wrapped in Continental tyres with plenty of tread left to enjoy.
All exterior trim components and lights also reflect plenty of care and boast no major defects or damage. All glass also appears to be free from damage, and in excellent condition.
Overall, the vehicle looks fantastic, especially for its age. It boasts an exterior condition that would suit even a much newer car and is sure to turn heads wherever it journeys.

● Black leather interior, with silver accents
● Clean, tidy, and well equipped
● Excellent condition
In true Porsche fashion, this sleek black leather interior offers an excellent balance of comfort, quality craftsmanship, and elegant styling. You’re treated to comfortable leather seats, which not only offer plenty of support on the corners but also present a very respectable finish with seemingly only the slightest signs of wear and age.
Carpeting throughout the cabin also stands in excellent order and is further protected by a set of clean and tidy Porsche floormats. With the exception of the most minute blemishes, both door cards follow suit, as does the dashboard. Unlike a great deal of similarly aged vehicles, the silver trim components and control surfaces also retain excellent finishes, leaving very little to be further desired.
It deserves to be noted that the folding soft top is not only in excellent order with no defects but also performs and operates without a hitch, as do all other interior electric components.
Overall, the interior presents itself beautifully, and would easily suit a much lower mileage example. There are of course minor blemishes to note upon very close inspection, but this interior is sure to impress and provide comfort for many more miles to come.
