In the Nineties, Porsche realized that they needed a small, fun, entry-level sports car to slot beneath the 911, and introduce a new gamut of customers to the Porsche lifestyle. Cue up the Boxster, launched in 1996, and the first Porsche since the 550 Spyder of forty years earlier to be designed from the ground-up as a roadster. This first generation 1999 Porsche Boxster is a great example of one of Porsche’s most successful models to date, and it has 72,158 miles on the odometer. It’s also got a New Engine is 6.5 Years Old with 30k Miles on it and comes with all service records, including recent servicing handled by a Porsche dealer. Peace of mind, indeed. Read on to find out why you should buy it. Two sets of keys are included with the sale.
Wearing a simple yet attractive Glacier White Metallic paint job, this 1999 Porsche Boxster boasts upgraded 18-inch Turbo Lock alloy wheels with black Porsche crested center caps for some distinctiveness, as well as the upgraded rear fixed spoiler. Being a convertible, a black soft top is your weather protection option. An upgraded exhaust with a single exit pipe out rear adds another touch of uniqueness to this particular Boxster. Open a frameless door and step into the two-seat cabin of this roadster and you quickly realize that it’s designed for you to savor the allure of the open road. That’s not to say that it’s spartan, in fact you’ve got electrically adjustable seats, climate control, a color screen infotainment system with original navigation, CD and cassette tape players, and carbon fiber interior trim which includes a carbon fiber shift knob for the manual transmission. Whether you choose the radio, CD or cassette, your tunes are played through a Bose sound system. Let’s also take a moment to appreciate the signature Porsche instrument cluster, with the large central rev counter playing host to a little digital speed readout within it, and the smaller pods on either side housing an analog speedometer, fuel gauge, engine temperature gauge, clock, and trip information. They don’t make em like this anymore.
The first generation Boxster wore a 2.5L flat six behind its passenger cabin, that put out 204hp, but this 1999 Porsche Boxster has seen some changes in that department. The engine is pretty new as we’ve said before, being built from the block upwards, but it’s also been bored out to 2.7L with new rotating assembly. This should add some useful power and torque upgrades, and it’s all sent to the rear wheels via a five speed manual transmission.
