2003 Porsche Boxster S
This 2003 Porsche Boxster S is a wonderful little car. The Boxster S was a large improvement over the the standard Boxster. With the Boxster S, you got the larger displacement and higher horsepower engine, 6-speed manual gearbox over the standard 5-speed, larger brakes and a sport tuned suspension. They are great fun to drive. The mid-engine layout has superior balance compared to many other sports cars on the road. The 2003 model also had several updated aesthetics including redesigned headlights, more aggressive front and rear bumpers, and a glass convertible top window replacing the brittle plastic one.
This particular car has the excellent and desirable color combination of Black with Savanna Beige. The exterior is in very sharp condition. There are a few minor chips and dings across the car. Most are minor and typical for the age of the car, the largest is on the front passenger’s side fender just above the side marker. The headlight was replaced on the passenger’s side at some point in its life and leads me to believe the small fender dent was a result of the same incident. All of the lights and lenses are crack free and in very good condition. The car has factory Xenon lights. Slight yellowing on the drivers side headlight but not bad at all. All of the glass is in great shape, one small chip on the passenger’s side of the windshield. The wheels are all free of curb rash and the tires are near new. Brakes around the car are also in very decent shape with much life left in them. The interior is beautiful and super clean. Typical bolster wear for a 2003 Porsche but no tears or rips. There is no sun damage in the car whatsoever. The dash is not cracked or shrinking at all and none of the plastic pieces are faded or sticky. All of the carpets are very clean and free of tears. Both front seats are power and without heaters. The AC, heat and all of the electronics in the car work absolutely wonderful and as they should. Car includes all of the books, tools, and spare wheel. There are no tears in the convertible top and it opens and closes with no issues. It is a very presentable car that offers a great deal of comfort while driving it.
This Boxster S is incredibly fun to drive. The engine is very strong and has been reliable. Previous owner performed an IMS replacement along with coilpacks and spark plugs. At the same time the clutch was replaced. Transmission shifts well up and down, no syncro issues or grinding. The car has a nice and tight feeling while driving it. It tracks straight down the road and handles like a dream. Despite the higher mileage, this car feels very much new. It has been very well maintained and is ready to be driven and enjoyed.
