2005 987 PORSCHE BOXSTER 2.7 MANUAL 240 BHP
64000 Miles/Fantastic Porsche/Great History


Boxster - New Generation 987
The second-generation Porsche Boxster comes with even more self-assertion,
more power and more performance. While only carefully re-modeled in
its contours, Porsche’s mid-engined sports car is significantly wider
on the road. Larger wheels and a wider track accentuate the further
enhanced design of the body. At the same time these improvements symbolize
the increase in power, the 2.7-litre six-cylinder in the Boxster now
developing maximum output of 240 bhp. The car will accelerate to 60 mph
in 6.2 seconds and has a top speed of 159 mph, but is more fuel-efficient
all the same, averaging 29.4 mpg in combined cycle. The car shares
almost all of the parts of the 911 997.

This is a matching numbers car with all original factory panels and
straight paint finish. The engine and gearbox are matching as
manufactured and nothing has been changed.

This has been extremely well looked after and is complete and unabused.
Accompanied with a good service record from main dealers and recognized
specialists detailing a considerable amount of supporting bills with
recent impressive maintenance. All genuine factory stickers to bonnet
underside and door pillars. Genuine Porsche approved Bosch battery and
cosmetically its a beautiful used Porsche.

Condition
Maintained extremely well and no expense has been spared. The hood is
totally intact and is fully operational and is watertight as tested.
The cabin is in fine order with no wear indicators, looking and feeling
fresh. The mats are in good condition too. The cabin is enhanced with
the Sport Design steering wheel which is more aesthetically pleasing than
the standard one and is actually quite hard to find, it does make a big
difference.

Service History & Recent Expenditure
16-12-17 OPC Glasgow for intermediate service at 64007 miles including
changing of the drive belt, they identified as part of the health inspection
that both top strut mountings and both top strut bearings needed replacing so
these were ordered from them and fitted, alongside a new coil spring, thus
bringing the vehicle 100 % up to par. Some other recent relevant
expenditure is set out below though is not an exhaustive list.

Tyres & Brakes
Essential components on any Porsche and much of the time not scrutinized
properly. To shod these cars with correct N rated tyres and genuine brake
components can eat up £2000 so its always good to pay attention to them
when buying. Incorrect tyres and cheap brakes compromise the performance
on any car though on a Porsche it becomes double important. Matching
Bridestone Potenza with proper Porsche N rating fitted. 235 40 front 265
40 rears with no damage and no repairs. The brakes are all the genuine
Brembo article which needless to say makes all the difference.

On The Road
Mechanically superb and fully tried and tested, with a smooth quiet engine,
The 2.7 being one of the most vocal units in any car, beyond 3000 rpm it
is a superb howl. Handling is as exemplary as expected from a Porsche that
boasts near perfect weight distribution. The depth of engineering is
instantly apparent not to mention enormously confidence inspiring. The
hood dropping electrically in a matter of moments whenever you take the
fancy. If I were to choose a Boxster to run this Summer this would be
it, with a classic color combo and some nice added touches it will always
hold a strong residual, I specifically like the alloy wheel style and the
shade of finish, the steering wheel is rather a rare option and is far
superior to the standard awkward looking effort and adds a higher appeal
to the cabin. With sensible mileage and upkeep of the servicing this will
evolve into a safe modern classic investment car, this is a top quality
used Porsche that would sit well among any company.

The Boxster Concept
Since its launch in 1996, the Boxster has seen of all comers. Driving
the car you soon realize that still nothing comes close. The best
Roadster money can buy? Probably. As a package the Boxster is as close
to a precision driving instrument that any of us are likely to get,
to get a better performance drop top you have to spend an awful lot
more money, and this is why the Boxster is so successful, a virtually
unrivaled convertible that has sensible running costs and renowned
reliability.
