2001 Porsche Boxster (986)
One-family-owned from new until earlier this year. Pretty example with the popular 2.7-litre engine option mated to manual transmission showing just 74,957 miles
Dating from March 2001 and supplied new by HR Owen (now Porsche Centre Hatfield), this remarkably original and lower mileage Porsche 986 Boxster 2.7 has spent it’s whole life in the ownership of just one family until earlier this year when our vendor bought it from us. The four former keepers are actually just three individuals – son, father (twice) and daughter.
The options code under the bonnet reveals this 986 to have been ordered in desirable Lapis Blue metallic paint, with a navy blue hood and graphite grey leather interior. The options specified include electric sports seats (codes 375 and 376), PSM Porsche Stability Management (476), automatic air conditioning (573), a Becker Porsche CDR-22 CD radio and CDC-3 6-disc CD changer (692 and 695), and extended leather to the dashboard and door panels (981), a rare option on a Boxster that really increases the premium feel of the interior.
The first owner (the son) kept the Boxster for six years to 2007, by which time it had covered just under 48,000 miles, and been serviced four times, twice by the supplying dealer and twice by well-respected Porsche specialists JZ Machtech.
He then sold the car to his father, who kept it for another six years, covering only c.11,000 miles before passing it on to his daughter in 2013, by which time the odometer was reading 59,000 miles. The daughter kept the car for a further seven years before handing it back to her father in 2020.
The service record shows a further 3 stamps in 2013, 2016, and most recently in January 2022, when the car had a comprehensive major service including new spark plugs, drive belt, rear brake pads, brake fluid change and some additional works including a new rear window to the hood, at Boxster specialist Flat Six Classics. The car was also treated to new spark plug tubes, 12 O-rings and two new front tyres ahead of the sale at a cost of £513.
The history file is comprehensive, containing 16 service and maintenance invoices and the last 14 MOT certificates, along with the original leather owners book pack containing the owner’s manuals and the stamped maintenance record with the eight aforementioned stamps. The current MOT runs until September 2023 recording just two minor advisories.
These 986 Boxsters are becoming collectable now that the model has passed its 25th birthday and is recognised by Porsche Classic. Early low mileage cars with good histories are leading the charge, and with Y91 JTM having spent most of its life in the care of just one family, it looks like a great opportunity.
