2005 Porsche Boxster (987)

Pretty, earlier 987 series Boxster with 2.7-litre engine and manual box; Metropol Blue leather interior and 92,000 miles from 7 year ownership

Supplied new by Porsche Centre Exeter in March 2005, this early 987.1 generation of Porsche Boxster comes to us finished in classic Arctic Silver (L92U) with Blue Mohair hood and sits upon its original 17” alloy wheels finished in silver and was produced at Porsche’s Valmet factory in Finland (502).

Sitting in the middle, for optimum weight distribution, we find the entry level 2.7-litre flat-six engine which develops 237bhp driving the rear wheels via five-speed manual transmission which gives the Boxster 2.7 a zero to sixty time of just 6.2 seconds (with manual ‘box).

Inside, we find delightful Metropol Blue leather interior with matching dash, binnacle, door cards and carpets.  In addition, this example was specified with a CD compartment (424), A.S.K sound system (490), wind deflector (551), top-tinted windscreen (567), automatic air conditioning (573), storage box behind the seats (584) and leather seats with leatherette rears and sides (946) – these are in addition to the standard spec items we see.

The car shows 93,141 miles and presents well, starting promptly and sounding well having been enjoyed and used by our vendor for the past seven years.  The history file includes the V5C revealing five former keepers, the owner’s pack and service book recording eight stamps, the most recent in May 2022 at 93,029 miles by Smithy Garage of Sandbach, Cheshire. In addition we also note a further six stamps for brake fluid changes and one for the long-life condition report.

The file also includes an impressive 15 old MOTs plus the current, valid until June 2023 which recorded two minor advisories for both front tyres cracking/perishing and handbrake cable damage. We also find a selection of invoices on file for parts and routine maintenance including for the most recent service and replacement air conditioning condenser and radiators in July 2016 at a cost of some £1,954 along with a purchase invoice dated July 2007 at 42,000 miles for £27,500.

Ready to be enjoyed these 2nd generation Boxsters look smart and offer great value for money – one to watch.
