Available for auction is this 2004 Porsche Boxtser S finished in Basalt Black Metallic over a Black full leather interior. Introduced in late 1996 as Porsche’s mid-engine entry level model, the first generation Boxster has been rapidly gaining favor amongst enthusiasts and collectors alike. This 2004 Boxster S was originally purchased from Porsche of Honolulu, and was acquired by the seller in 2016. It was subsequently shipped to Colorado where it resides today. It comes equipped with factory options including the Xenon Headlamp package, 18” Carrera wheels, Self dimming mirrors, and more. This 986 Boxster is now being offered by its seller out of Colorado showing just over 39k miles on the odometer.
This 986 is finished in Basalt Black Metallic (Z4) and features an automatically deploying rear spoiler and a power-retractable black soft top. The seller notes that the previous owner applied a ceramic coating which was replaced with a new high quality coating in July of this year, and a layer of paint protection film covers the front end. Detailed images can be found in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX. Features include the Xenon Headlamp package, quarter panel air vents, a speed-activated rear spoiler, roll hoops, a central exhaust outlet, and 18” Light Alloy Carrera Wheels with colored crest center caps.
