2004 Porsche 986 Boxster S 550 Anniversary Edition #1458/1953

Now up for auction is this highly collectible 2004 Porsche 986 Boxster S “50 years of 550 Spyder Edition”.  To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic 550 Spyder race car, Porsche released a limited series of 1953 special edition Boxster S models all finished in GT Silver Metallic over premium Natural Leather interiors. They also received revised engine tuning for increased horsepower, color-matched 18” Carrera wheels, Sport Seats, and many other unique features.   Only 500 of these special edition Boxsters made their way to the United States. Designated as #1458/1953, this 986 has spent its entire life in Texas and is now being offered for auction by its third and current owner while showing approximately 85k-miles on the odometer.

All 550 Spyder Edition Boxster’s were finished in GT Silver Metallic, a color that had been previously reserved for only the Carrera GT and 40th-Anniversary Edition 911.  This 986 is said to have been garage kept by the current owner and some minor signs of road-going wear are noted throughout the exterior.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. Noteworthy exterior features of this special edition include a unique stacked-tip exhaust finisher, painted rear intake gils, a chrome plated model designation on the rear deck, and 18” Carrera wheels with painted spokes and contrasting bright silver outer lips.  The rear tires are said to have been newly installed and the front are said to bear less than 2k-miles of use.

Inside, this 986 is appointed with a premium Dark Grey Natural Leather interior and factory Sport Seats.  Some unique details of this special edition include a painted center console and instrument surround, perforated leather on the steering wheel and handbrake lever, and a limitation placard showing this car’s individual production number of 1483/1953.  Other factory features include a CD shelf center console, cruise control, the Bose High-End Sound Package, and a remote 6-disc CD changer.  Upgraded aluminum pedals have been installed and all gauges and accessories are said to be working properly.

This Boxster S is equipped with a mid-mounted 3.2 L flat-six engine rated at 264 HP, an increase of 7 HP over the standard Boxster S thanks to revised engine tuning.  This special edition also comes from the factory with a stiffer and lower suspension, a short-throw shifter, sport exhaust, 5mm wheel spacers, and Porsche Stability Management (PSM).  Routine service has been carried out under the current ownership since 2014 including the replacements of fluids, filters, belts, and brakes.  The air/oil separator was also previously replaced by a Porsche dealer and a new water pump was installed within the last two years.  Additional service information is provided on CARFAX.

This sale will include a spare tire and a clean title.  An exclusive limited-production model with beautiful factory specifications, this 550 Anniversary Edition is just waiting to be enjoyed by a new owner.

    @manuals4ever I'm with you, the Cocoa Brown interior is a must-have on these. It seems 80% of Boxsters have black interiors. The "right" one is tough to find.

    @tschwalbe I don't have any oil lab reports. I check the oil carefully every time I change it. It's been mostly a practical decision to do both clutch and IMS at the same time. Yes that is a small dent in the rear quarter. The wheels show their age but have had no trouble balancing my tires. No other issues to be concerned with.

    hey @ricco do you have any oil lab reports to show that the IMS is not affected in this car or how do you know to wait and gamble? Are there dents on the passenger rear quarter above the vent or just shadows? Also that RR rim appears to have some curb rash, what is the condition of all 4 please? Any service suggestions (other than IMS) before a long journey? Thanks much and nice looking Boxster!

    @manuals4ever the clutch is still in very good shape. I have owned the car for almost 7 years and I have not replaced it. However, with 85K miles, I can't believe that it's still the original clutch.

  • manuals4ever (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @ricco now that you mention it, what the status of the clutch? original? life remaining? how about the AOS and RMS?

    @patco2927 Hi, the IMS has not been replaced. I was waiting until it needed a new clutch.

  • patco2927 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Sorry to ask but has IMS been addressed yet?

    @luis.seneriz Hi. No mods. I have kept the car in its original form. I have only used OEM parts.

    Any upgrades, headers, exhaust?? I own a 3/98 911 coupe. Wife would like also a convertible. I’m in Katy.

    I've been wanting one of these or a RS60 for several years now. However, I can't seem to find the right one at the right time. I want the Cocoa Brown interior on the S550 or the red interior/red top on the RS60. GLWTA!

  • rrydberg 1 month, 1 weekago

    I am definitely going to watch this one. I have a sister to this car - #0591. Good luck!
