My 986 Boxster for sale...

Boxster_McDowell_SM.pdf We are reluctantly putting our Boxster on the market as it spends most of its time in the garage. Young kids curtail how often we now use it. A lot of time and money has been spent on the car over the years to bring it to as high a standard as possible. This is not your standard 986 2.7 Boxster. Over the years I have aimed to keep the car as much OEM+ as possible. So any styling upgrades have been something that 'could' have been factory. As for performance I have changed the suspension to the full Porsche M030 setup (shocks, springs and arbs) in about 2015. So it has had only a few thousand miles use. Also replaced were two track control arms. So the suspension is as good as it could be. As for engine performance any upgrades have been chasing better throttle response and torque. To that end the car has a RSS Under drive pulley fitted, IPD Aluminium Plenum, 74mm throttle body and the associated silicone ducting. The air box is standard but is fitted with a K&N air filter. Also fitted is a OEM Style sports Dansk Exhaust (this is not the model that drones). This exhaust not only looks OEM but is fitted with the Porsche twin tailpipes, again keeping the car OEM looking. 
 
I had always intended keeping the car so anything it has needed has been replaced. Last year all the brake pipes were replaced and the PAS (Power steering) pipe was also replaced. Both parts that cars of this age will probably start needing. The car has been looked after at SP Autobahn in Stirling since I bought it. He also looks after my 944. 
 
In 2017 the car had a front end and rear offside rear quarter respray at Foz. Dealing with stone chips and a paint defect on the rear quarter. The bodywork is in excellent condition.
 
See the document below / or link for full info. One thing I have forgotten to list is the gear selector has been changed for the 997 version. I found the short shift too short for the clutch, where as this is a good compromise and a load better built. 
 
I understand I am looking for a higher than usual price for a stock version of this car, but I do believe that this car is worth more than most. The PCGB Insurance valuation of £10K does vindicate that thought, but I am open to sensible offers and inspections.
 
If you are interested, or know anybody who might be, please let me know. I am very keen that this car goes to somebody who will appreciate it. 
 
Thanks, Andrew.

    Please note I am open to sensible offers. If anybody is looking for a car that has had most of the weak points sorted and is in particularly good condition. I would suggest you at least come and have a look at this car. Take care, Andrew.
