Available for auction is this 2005 Porsche 987 Boxster finished in Carmon Red Metallic over a Sand Beige interior. Marking the inaugural model year for the 987, this 2005 example is said to be a lifelong California car that has been under the care of the same family from new. Factory equipment includes a 5-speed manual transmission, automatic climate control, heated seats, auto-dimming mirrors with an integrated rain sensor, xenon headlights, 18″ Boxster S wheels, and the Bose Surround Sound System. With just over 40k miles showing on the odometer, this nicely presented Boxster is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
This Boxster is finished in Carmon Red Metallic with a Cocoa Brown retractable soft top. The car is said to have always been garage kept and primarily used as a casual weekend driver. A few minor imperfections are depicted in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. Exterior features include bi-xenon headlights with washers, integrated front fog lights, side air intakes, a central exhaust outlet, and a speed-activated rear spoiler. Optional 18” Boxster S wheels are fitted with colored Porsche center crests and a mixed set of Michelin and Continental tires.
Inside, the Sand Beige standard leather interior offers heated seats, automatic climate control, self-dimming mirrors with an integrated rain sensor, the Bose Surround Sound System, and power accessories. All gauges and accessories are reported to be working properly and some typical wear is noted on the soft-touch climate controls.
The mid-mounted 2.7L flat-six engine generates up to 240 HP and 199 lb.-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels by way of a desirable 5-speed manual transmission. Recent invoices from Porsche Irvine show a multi-point inspection to have been carried out in January of 2021 as well as the installation of a new xenon headlight bulb and ignition lock unit. Another invoice from Euro Motors in 2013 shows the replacements of the rear brake pads and rotors, brake pad sensors, a brake fluid flush, and an oil/filter service at 33,863 miles. There is no record of an IMS bearing replacement. The corresponding invoices are provided for reference in the photo gallery along with a service history on CARFAX.
This sale will include a clean title and some service records. Offering an exciting mid-engine platform and 5-speed manual transmission, this lower mileage Boxster makes an excellent choice for any enthusiast in search of a daily-drivable sports car.
