This immaculate 986 Boxster S with just 55,560 miles recorded has had only 4 former keepers, the last of whom was the wife of a Porsche repair specialist in Dorset. He lavished attention on his wife’s car over a 3 year period, to the extent that when we came to prepare the car for sale, we could hardly find anything that needed attention.
There are 15 stamps in the service record, along with a vast array of invoices and old MOT certificates, all bound chronologically in a smart A4 ring binder.
The list of replacement parts fitted reads like a comprehensive Porsche parts list – coolant radiators, air oil separator, oil coolant heat exchanger, water pump, low temperature thermostat, header tank, air conditioning condensers, clutch, dual mass flywheel, rear main seal, upgraded LN Engineering IMS bearing… and that is just the work completed on the car’s first of seven visits to the JMG workshop!
Effectively we have here a fully refurbished 986 Boxster S. We still sent the car to North Devon Porsche for an inspection and pre-sale check, and all Martin could find was a couple of tired trim fasteners and a duff sidelight bulb.
Y824HOD looks stunning in Meridian Silver with Metropole Blue interior and updated facelift hood with glass rear window. Running on immaculate 18″ Sport Design split-rim alloy wheels with nearly new Continental SportContact N-rated tyres, the car drives as you would imagine a new Boxster would have done in 2001- scintillating performance and precise handling, and the benefit of knowing that anything that might ever need replacing…already has. A wonderful car.
