The Boxster was unveiled in late 1996 and was the first Porsche since the 550 Spyder to be designed from scratch as a Roadster. It was penned by Dutch designer Harm Lagaay, who was also primarily responsible for the 968, 993, Cayenne, 996 and Carrera GT. At launch it was 2.5-litres in capacity, but the standard offering was increased to 2.7-litres in 2000. The M96 engine related to that in the 996, and the newcomer also shared that car's bonnet, front wings and headlights. The suspension was independent all-round, braking by power-assisted ventilated discs and steering by rack and pinion.

Supplied by AFN Limited in Surrey, this 986 Boxster 2.5 litre was first registered on the 24th June 1998. Presenting in the iconic and rare colour combination of Arena Red Metallic with the complementing Sahara Beige leather interior.

Purchased by the current owner in September 2017, with c.50,000 miles, the odometer now displays 71,100 miles and the Boxster has benefitted from a new clutch, the main computer was replaced along with two new coded keys, four new ventilated and drilled discs, refurbished calipers and suspension components. The front and rear anti-roll bars and drop links were replaced, dampers upgraded to Bilstein units and all bushes replaced with Powerflex polypropylene. The original exhaust has been replaced with twin pipe units and the full coil pack replaced.

Inside, there is a new aftermarket Sony radio unit, however, the original has been retained with the wiring intact, so that it could be put back for originality purposes. At some point, a new soft-top hood, with heated rear screen, was supplied and professionally fitted by Jasmine Porsche of Burnley. A new windscreen was fitted some 3 years ago due to stone chip breakage. This was the correct Porsche unit with an internal radio aerial and Green sun tint to the top section of the screen. At this point, the edge of the fitting area was checked and no corrosion was present. A new alarm control unit was fitted in 2015 A new battery was fitted some 2 years ago and a dedicated battery charger connection was fitted (no requirement for crocodile clips). Pirelli P7 tyres are fitted all round, with ‘a good tread depth present’.

In March 2024 the car was taken for its MOT and a routine service, including oil and filter was carried out along with re-gassing of the air-conditioning more recently. The original owner’s wallet with handbook and service booklet is present and there is a collection of invoices and old MOT documentation. Offered with a current V5C.
