Designed by Grant Larson, the Porsche Boxster (internal model code '986') took its original styling cues from the classic Porsche models of the 1950's, the 356 Cabriolet, Speedster and the 550 Spyder with the original concept making its first appearance at the 1993 North American International Auto Show. Received with wide-spreed acclaim the 'Boxster' concept (taking its name from the BOXer engine and speedSTER body styling) was developed into working prototypes during 1993-94 with Porsche 964 bodies adapted to take the newly designed water-cooled mid-engine power train and running gear. With number of components shared with the 911 replacement, the 996, the Boxster final went into series production in mid-1996, with the cars being fitted with a 2.5 litre, flat six engine.
During its 8 year production the 986 Boxster saw a number of mechanical engine upgrades, the base model seeing an increase in capacity to 2.7 litres and the introduction of the new range topping 'S' model with these cars featuring the larger cross-drilled brakes from the 996 Carrera 3.4, brake calipers painted red, uprated springs and shock-absorbers, plus a number of additional suspension revisions, wider tyres and the 3.4 Boxer 'S' engine offering 252 bhp, offering a sub 6 second 0-60mph time and 160+ mph top speed.

Original ordered under the vehicle lease scheme offered by NHS Wales, the car was purchased by its Doctor owner directly from them in 2006 and therefore has had only one keeper. Needless to say the car has an impeccable service history, for a 45,400 mile car we've never seen one so highly maintained as the Porsche service book shows 14 service stamps (5 Porsche and 9 Specialist) with the last service in 2018 @ 45198 miles, plus associate Brake fluid changes / Long-life Inspection.
With such an amazing service record and her low mileage the Boxster is an absolute delight. Walking around the car it's clear to see that she has been truly cherished, The interior shows no sign of wear on the beautiful Metropole blue leather, the paint-work is in first class order, the electric hood remains in excellent condition and folds quickly at the touch of a button and on starting the flat six engine, one can't help but be intoxicated at the sound as the revs rise in this range topping 3.2 S model.
With her impeccable service record, expensive Becker radio / navigation upgrades, full book packs, Porsche keyfob with 2 keys (plus Valet key), clear HPI file, 12 months MOT and tailored cover this Boxster is one of the finest and ready to be enjoy and be cherished by her new keeper.

"After recently selling my Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster I found myself spending hours searching for a suitable replacement. With so many years being the owner of this stylish ‘Cat’ the search went on day and night, often with a glass of Scotlands finest whiskey in hand! I began working through my ‘wish list’ and couldn’t believe my luck when I stumbled across the Absolute Classic Cars website. A Volvo 1800S was clearly on my radar and Marks privately owned classic was something unreal, the car looked truly stunning.
I instantly called Mark (who speaks great German) and told him I would be on the next available plane. At 2am I booked the flight, organised a rental car and shortly afterwards had boarded a flight to the UK and finally made it to Marks house with enough light left in an otherwise typical grey winters day. Mark opened his garage and rolled out his classic, still wearing its cover, my heart in overdrive and head spinning! Mark removed the cover and there in front me…..every word Mark had used far exceeded my expectations, the exterior colour complimented the shape of the car perfectly, it simply could not be surpassed, the interior was the icing on the cake and the car was in absolutely fantastic order…I needed to buy this car as much as I needed to breath!
The personal touch, the thought of the smallest details that went into restoring this car from a barn-find car to an absolute classic winner just shows the amount of expertise and knowledge about design and how things work to elevate a good car into something very special.
If you are looking for the personal touch paired with knowledge about historic cars, then Absolute Classic Cars is the only way to go."
