The chic two-seater Boxster was unveiled in late 1996 and was the first road-going 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. The Boxster sobriquet was a contraction of 'boxer-engined roadster' - the newcomer being a convertible with water-cooled flat-six engine mounted amid-ships. At launch it was 2.5-litres in capacity, but the standard offering was increased to 2.7-litres in 2000, coincident with the introduction of the higher performance 3.2-litre 'S'. The M96 engine directly related to that in the 996, but the newcomer also shared that car's bonnet, front wings and headlights. Suspension was independent all round by MacPherson struts and coil springs, braking by power-assisted ventilated discs and steering by rack and pinion. The 3.2-litre 'S' featured bigger wheels, upgraded braking and suspension systems and notably more performance - with 252bhp on tap and a drag coefficient of just 0.29, it could sprint to 60mph in six seconds and on to a top speed of 160mph plus. Just under 47,000 3.2-litre Boxster Ss were built between 1996 and 2002.

Supplied new by H. R. Owen in Hatfield being delivered new on the 1st of September 2001 to its first and only keeper, the Boxster has been sparingly used, covering low mileages each year, and has been well maintained throughout its life, having now covered 49,000 miles from new. Finished in Schwarz Metallic paintwork with Grey leather interior upholstery and a Black hood, the Boxster is a desirable ‘S’ with the preferable manual transmission and was specified new with an uprated battery, wind deflector, top-tinted windscreen, air-conditioning, Becker Porsche CD player, and leather seats with leatherette rears from the factory. Presenting excellently overall, ‘KE51 MFP’ is a very original example with the original keys, under bonnet stickers, and book pack. The book pack contains no less than two service books that show sixteen servicing stamps, with the last completed at 49,190 miles at the end of last year. One owner examples of the ever more collectable Boxster are rare to come up, with this low mileage and highly original example a great example.
