Introduced in late 1996 as Porsche’s premier mid-engine roadster, the Boxster has earned recognition among enthusiasts for its agile and responsive driving characteristics. This 2003 Porsche 986 Boxster S comes finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior and features heated front seats, cruise control, Porsche Stability Management, HiFi Sound, and a Porsche wind deflector. Having remained with one owner before being acquired by the selling dealer, this garage-kept example is now being offered for auction out of New York while showing just over 7k miles on the odometer.
This 986 is finished in the traditional shade of Guards Red and features an automatically deploying rear spoiler and a black power-retractable soft top. Red-finished brake calipers can be seen behind the 17” Boxster S wheels with colored Porsche crests and new Michelin Pilot Sport All Season tires. The seller notes a minor scrape led to a professional repair, and minor imperfections on the hood are present. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is trimmed in Black leather with black floor mats with Porsche lettering. Optional features include heated seats, a wind-deflector, cruise control, a CD compartment, and HiFi Sound. Amenities also include 8-way power-adjustable seats and automatic climate control.
This Boxster S carries a mid-mounted 3.2-liter flat-six engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. This naturally aspirated power plant sends as much as 258 HP and 229 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels. Porsche Stability Management was equipped from the factory, and stopping power is handled by fixed 4-piston red-painted brake calipers with cross-drilled rotors at each corner. The seller states this vehicle previously suffered IMS failure, and TKX Performance Inc. of New York removed the engine which was then shipped to Vertex Auto in Florida for a complete rebuild. Extensive documentation will accompany the sale, and the seller notes there are currently no outstanding maintenance items.
This sale will include a clean title, owner’s manuals, a window sticker, a toolkit, and extensive documentation.
The seller would like you to know: "Hello everyone. The original owner of this fine Boxster S lived just a few doors down from me. When it came time to part with it, he knew I'd love to own it so at the end of 2022, he reached out and I acquired the car. Being such a nice example, I did not rush to sell, however, the 75th Porsche anniversary felt like the appropriate time. As a licensed dealer, this is still considered a one-owner car as the new buyer will be the legal second owner. This car is a true time capsule throughout, and there will be no disappointments. I can assure you a lot of these have not faired well over time and this one is virtually brand new. Please come check it out prior to bidding if able. Best of luck."
