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."

  • 11JM (seller) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    Great news. The shop just emailed it over and it will be in the listing in a few min

  • 11JM (seller) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    @SFM1966 hi

    Just to Circe back , this invoice that I reviewed personally prior to buying the car is not with the books and window sticker like I assumed. I believe the seller mistakenly didn’t give it to me. Nonetheless, I am happy to make the sale contingent on the document because in the worst case scenario, the shop, that performed all of work is still in business

    The shop is TKX in Huntington NY. They created the motor and sent it to Vertex to complete the job. The invoice was in the tune of $18k. I also personally called Vertex to verify that the upgraded bearing was used on the job. Please bid with confidence, I will get the invoice situation squared away.

    @jrward22 @jrward22 sure, it is hard to see in a photo, basically just a few rock chips from driving on the freeway. They have been touched up with the correct Guards Red paint

  • jrward22 (registered bidder) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    Can you tell us more about the blemish on the hood? Can’t really see it in the photos.

  • 11JM (seller) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    @SFM1966 hi

    Apparently I thought it was in my office and it isn’t. Must be in the car! So sorry. I’m heading over to it in the next hour and will get it done. Meanwhile I uploaded a better copy of the sticker and c of a which is laminated btw

  • SFM1966 (registered bidder) 11 months, 3 weeksago

    @11JM can you upload the documentation you have. Very interested to have a look. Thank you!

  • 11JM (seller) 11 months, 4 weeksago

    @dashanin will provide additional pics of the C of A as well as the window sticker. please check back tomorrow, everything should be loaded in.

    Thanks everyone for the bids and interest so far!

  • 11JM (seller) 11 months, 4 weeksago

    @jaxxon99 hello. I have all of the invoices in my storage and I will retrieve them by tomorrow and have them added to the listing to provide ample time for review prior to auction close. I mistakenly thought I had PDF's on my computer so apologies on that.

  • amouton11 11 months, 4 weeksago

    Bid in the amount of $18,900

  • dashanin (registered bidder) 12 monthsago

    @11JM Based on quick search on rennlist all 986s have ABS, and none have LSD stock, but it can be added aftermarket of course.

  • dashanin (registered bidder) 12 monthsago

    @11JM Thanks. FYI I reviewed the window sticker, but I believe its folded and the side that contains standard/optional equipment is not visible. The CoA is the in the folder and I can't see full buildsheet.

  • jaxxon99 (registered bidder) 12 monthsago

    Can you post the invoices related to the engine rebuild?

  • 11JM (seller) 12 monthsago

    @dashanin hi I believe it’s standard on the S but I’m not 100% certain. I’ve provided a c of a and window sticker so the whole build for the car can be reviewed. Thank you for the interest.

  • dashanin (registered bidder) 12 monthsago

    Lovely first generation Boxster! Does it have factory LSD? Not sure if it was a factory option for an S...thanks in advance.
