99 Boxster 2.5, silver with red leather


1998 model, but registered in 1999 - 'S' plate. Silver body and black power hood with a brilliant red leather interior - classic colours from Porsche's racing days!

I understand that the car was originally registered in Germany and brought into the UK, but it is the full UK specification (and right-hand drive) and therefore is no problem to insure - you do not have to go to a specialist company or pay anything extra. It is exactly the same as a UK model in every way.

2500cc, manual, petrol, 76,000 miles. Three previous owners.

This car is offered with full Porsche service history. The service book is stamped with yearly inspections from 1999.

This car has been meticulously looked after, and has been serviced by Porsche or authorised Porsche agents every year, in line with the recommended service intervals. You will not find a better service record than this.

This car is in excellent condition. It had its scheduled major service at Porsche Guildford in May, along with the MOT, which it passed with flying colours. There are two brand new tyres, and the other two are very recent - all have a lot of tread and no damage. I also had a new coolant tank fitted in June 2009 as there was a small leak, and had new front suspension arms and bushes fitted this summer. As a result, it now drives like a brand new machine. Very tight around the corners, and tremendous out on the open road with the roof down. Once you take the engine up to around 3,000 revs, it sings!

The only real points to note, other than the usual slight stone chips around the front (of which there are very few) are a small scrape along the top of the wing mirror. Otherwise, no dents, dings, bumps or damage to the body. The electric hood works perfectly, and most importantly it is watertight. A lot of cars this age develop leaks, which can damage the interior.

I have owned this car since May 2007 and have enjoyed it enormously, so much so that I have recently replaced it with a newer Boxster. Driving it is tremendous fun, especially on a sunny day. It has great handling, the best in its class, and is thoroughly reliable.

MOT and tax to May 2010.

NO CANVASSERS. I do not want to list this on any obscure sites, even if you do have hundreds of buyers all lined up...

Offers are welcome, but please bear in mind the condition and history of this vehicle. It is a beautiful car, very lovingly kept and maintained, and it is worth the price I have listed it at.

Payment to be by banker's draft or cash. The car will only be released upon cleared funds.

If you have any questions, please email me on dbarville@tiscali.co.uk, or give me a ring on 01753 866367 or 07884 337211 until 9pm. I'm happy to discuss any aspect of the car with you. You're welcome to come and see it. Test drives are fine, although I'd like to see proof of insurance for obvious reasons.
