A nice entry-level early Boxster 2.7 which came to us in part exchange, K40 BXR has a very good service history and just 5 owners over the last 19 years. Presented in Arctic Silver with Metropole Blue leather interior, with upgraded and newly refurbished 18″ Boxster 987.1 alloy wheels, and looking particularly smart with red painted brake calipers and a PORSCHE script on the rear deck instead of the usual Boxster logo.
The service history is particularly good, comprising 16 service stamps in the maintenance record, the first 9 of which are from Porsche Centres over a 10 year period. For the next 5 years the car was looked after by 9Tuning, a Porsche specialist in Kent, before the car came to Devon and was last serviced by local Porsche specialists Braunton Engineering in March 2017 at 85,678 miles. Current mileage is 87,500.
K40 BXR is offered for sale at a lower price than most of our cars, on the basis that we have not fully prepared the car to our normal standards. There are a few minor points to consider – on time elapsed, it is due a service and brake fluid change (although only covered 2,000 miles in the last 2 years), one of the rear coffin arms is a little “creaky”, and the air conditioning is weak – the RH condenser looks like it might need replacement soon (and was noted at last service in 2017). Our warranty on this car will be 3 months/3,000 miles due to it having higher mileage than our normal stock, and excludes the items identified above.
The body panels and paint are in very good condition, with just a few tiny scratches and a mark to the lower front spoiler below the number plate.
On the road this Boxster drives really nicely – the 220bhp flat-six engine pulls strongly and smoothly, the clutch action and gear change are very precise, and the brakes are powerful and responsive. The interior is in great condition with just a few age-related marks on the drivers seat bolster. The hood works perfectly and has a very clear rear screen. The car comes with 2 working remote keys, full book pack and a large file of invoices and all old MOT certificates.
In summary, this lovely car would make a great introduction to Boxster ownership, as it has a good service and MOT history with just a few minor issues to address, none of which will spoil the enjoyment of the car this summer.
