Here we have a fantastic early Boxster 2.5 in the launch colours of Arctic Silver with Boxster Red leather interior. This is a genuine and completely original 1 owner car, with a comprehensive history file containing every invoice from the original order form and sales invoice, through all the service invoices right up to the present day.
We love a one owner car here at Flat Six Classics, especially when we get to meet the owners in person and hear the history of the car firsthand. In this case, Mr Taylor and his wife ordered their Boxster from Carrs Porsche in Exeter in April 1998 to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. But such was the demand for the Boxster after its UK launch that they had to wait until 21st July 1999 before their car was delivered. In the meantime, they purchased the personalised registration J1LSY for the car (have a guess what Mrs Taylor’s christian name is?), which it has worn since being first registered.
J1LSY was ordered with a couple of expensive options – the full leather Boxster Red interior at £2850, and the Lux pack (which included AC and extended leather to the dashboard and door panels) at £2900, plus sports seats, Arctic silver painted roll bar and aluminium dials, gearknob and handbrake lever. The total cost for the car was just over £42,000, which equates to almost £75,000 adjusted for inflation!
The maintenance history is comprehensive to say the least, with the car being looked after by the owner’s local Porsche Centre in Bournemouth from new until 2014 and 82,000 miles (10 maintenance stamps in the record, supported by all invoices), and subsequently Mr Taylor used a couple of local garages for routine servicing and any additional maintenance required. We have carried out a brake fluid change, fitted new AC condensers and recharged the system.
The car is in lovely condition inside and out, we have had the front bumper repainted to remove some stone chips, but apart from that the paint is all original. The interior is in spectacular condition, the Boxster Red leather to the seats, dash and door trims retaining its original bright colouring, and the carpets have only minimal fading given the age of the car.
On the road, J1LSY feels poised and alert, the free-revving 2.5 flat-six singing away behind you, the steering direct and feelsome, the ride quality supple and handling exemplary, just as a well-kept Boxster should feel. Although the car has covered 98,273 miles in it’s 22 year life, but by spending all that time in the rural West Country and used by the single owner for foreign road trips, it has retained a fresh feeling that belies it’s age and mileage.
This is a rare opportunity to experience a one owner, highly original Boxster 2.5 that rewards every drive. Please call Sean on 07595 455568 if you would like more information or to arrange to visit to see and drive this lovely Boxster.
