The Boxster 2.7 Facelift
The Boxster became the yardstick by which all other sports cars were judged,
including Porsche’s own 911. It blends thrilling performance and excellent
road holding with surprising practicality (the Boxster effectively has two boots)
and impressive build quality. The earliest 2.5-litre versions can feel a little
underpowered, and suffered from mechanical issues that prompted the change to
the more robust 2.7 engine. This is the final evolution of the 986 model and
as such the best of the model range with the powerful 228 bhp unit that is
a sheer delight and razor sharp to drive. The model received a minor facelift
in 2003 however it all added up to a far more appealing car. The plastic
rear window was replaced by glass with obvious benefits arising. Porsche
installed a different exhaust pipe and modified air intake. The often
disliked orange "fried egg" front indicators were replaced with clear glass
indicators, and the rear light cluster was changed, with orange turn signals
replaced with clear grey. The side marker lights on the front wings were
changed from orange to clear, and the bumpers were also changed slightly for
a more defined, chiselled appearance, the interior had a few tweak's also.

Alloys/Tyres
Factory upgaraded larger 18 " rims set the appaearnce of the car off nicely.
They are in excellent condition. Matching Continental tyres all round.

Summary
The majority of the earlier Boxsters cars are starting to look quite rough
round the edges and for those of you who may have travelled to view the
" mint example " that subsequently and predictably turns out to be not quite
as described - this could well be the car for you. A loved car, that is clear
from the first glance, and very genuine. Maintained extremely well and no
expense has been spared. The low miles have been very kind to it and has had
routine money getting spent regular. For me the 2.7 has always been the pick
of the bunch as generally they are more reliable and not driven as hard as
the 3.2. Call me for a chat and I will cover any questions you have.
