A nice entry-level early Boxster 2.7 which has come back to us in part exchange (see below), W588TDP has a very good service history and just 5 previous 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 17 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 serviced by local Porsche specialists Braunton Engineering in March 2017 at 85,678 miles. In June 2019 it had an annual service, brake fluid change, new AC condensers (all at Martin Reed), and new N-rated Continental rear tyres. Current mileage is just over 88,000.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that the car wears the registration K40 BXR in the pictures, and that we had the car up for sale a few months ago. Well that’s right, the car was sold to a lovely chap from Plymouth who had it for a couple of months and was then smitten with the Speed Yellow 3.2 S we had, and promptly traded this car back to us, keeping the registration K40 BXR for his “new” Boxster S. The car now sports its original registration of W588 TDP.
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 makes a great introduction to Boxster ownership, as it has a very good service and MOT history, and drives very well. Please call Sean on 07595 455568 for more information or to arrange a test drive.
