The Porsche Boxster was launched in 1996, and was the German company’s first pure-bred roadster since the legendary 550 Spyder in the 1950s. A powerful, lightweight two-seater, the Boxster’s sporty exterior had curves in all the right places, and was a success right from the start, quickly becoming Porsche’s biggest selling model.
The Boxster’s engine was a water-cooled flat-6, mid-mounted to provide a low centre of gravity, excellent weight distribution between the front and rear axles, exceptionally well-balanced handling characteristics and excellent manoeuvrability, especially when cornering.
In 2005, a new ‘987’ Boxster was unveiled, with a subtly redesigned body featuring a headlight profile borrowed from the Carrera GT, plus larger side vents and wheel arches, and a revamped interior.

The Boxster is a modern tribute to the artistry and innovation that defined the legendary Porsche 550 Spyder; agile, elegant and lightweight. The Arctic silver bodywork hosts one or two obvious minor cosmetic defects, although they in no way detract from the overall presentation; clean, consistent and with a uniform lustre throughout.
The hood presents with no cosmetic defects whilst operation is swift and quiet.
The optional black leather is in fine cosmetic order; soft, supple and maintaining excellent contour and shape.
The driving position is first class with the waistline of the bodywork relatively high, so feels very snug even with the roof lowered.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
At the heart of the Boxster’s lies it’s namesake boxer engine – the 3.2 water-cooled flat-six has real character, with a distinct sound that gets better the higher you climb the rev range. The central exit amplifies the six cylinder warble beautifully, nestled snugly into the rear bumper arrangement.
Out on the road the car is totally immersive and rewards even the most experienced driver, whilst being wholly approachable the tactility and partnership between steering and drivetrain remains deeply impressive.
