Here we have a beautiful Manual Carrera White Porsche Boxster Spyder, acquired from one of our customers, with 20k miles, original, flawless paint, excellent over-rev history, lightweight specification and a factory Porsche Sports Exhaust.
The Spyder is the Boxster version of the critically acclaimed Cayman R. The engineers at Porsche had fun developing the standard model into something which epitomises the less is more principle. There are so many features on the car which you find as you start to look around it – no door pockets, the different instrument cluster binnacle, the fabric door pulls, the deleted cup holders, the aluminium door shells, the lowered suspension, the different air intakes, special lightweight wheels. The heavy electric roof of the standard car is replaced with a featherweight manual roof. The door windows have a beautiful contour to them because of the roof profile. Famously the maximum speed with the roof up is only 120mph. To reach the maximum speed of 167mph, the roof needs to come off.
The extras (or removals) on this car are focussed on being lightweight. It has lightweight, carbon back bucket seats, manual transmission and comes without climate control (air conditioning)! It does have rear parking sensors and a Porsche Sports Exhaust (PSE)
One of the previous keepers removed the PCM (Radio) unit and replaced it with the storage unit. This really is dedication to the cause! The PCM unit comes with the car, so that the new owner can decide whether to refit or not. We assume that the door speakers and dash speakers are still present, but these have not been checked.
The most recent keeper has added to this lightweight obsession. He has replaced the wheel bolts with Titanium parts. The battery has also been replaced with an Anti-gravity battery. He also refurbished the wheels using renowned Xcel Wheels. All tyres were renewed with the correct N rated Michelin pilot sport tyres at the same time. These still look new.
Quite recently, the car was detailed and ceramic coated and this is still evident when the car is washed.
Porsche part exchanges welcome
The service history is good. A period in storage meant the car wasn’t serviced in 2014. It wasn’t MOT’d in 2014, 2015 and 2016 either. The services have been carried out initially by OPC Nottingham in 2012, 2017 and 2019. In 2021 OPC tonbridge carried out a health check and oil service. We carried out the major service 2021. Also in 2021, the rear suspension arms were replaced with genuine Porsche items and a wheel alignment carried out at Autofarm.
Overall, you have a very desirable Boxster Spyder that was carefully specified from new to be lightweight and then improved by recent owners. The car is now in amazing condition, having been serviced this year, ready for its new owner.
