BaT Auction: 2002 Porsche Boxster S 6-Speed

This post was originally published on this site

This 2002 Porsche Boxster S is finished in Seal Grey over black leather and equipped with a 3.2L flat-six mated to a 6-speed manual transaxle. The car was originally purchased at New Country Porsche in Greenwich, Connecticut, moved to Florida with its second longterm owner, and was acquired in 2015 by the seller, who has since added 2000 of its 78k indicated miles and recently relocated it to Virginia. Turbo-look wheels, Porsche Stability Management, and xenon headlamps were optioned from the factory, while upgrades and modifications include an LN Engineering IMS retrofit, Borla exhaust, matching hardtop, and Porsche Speedster humps. This 986 is offered with a clean Carfax report, hardtop stand, service records to 2014, owner’s books, two sets of floor mats, and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name.

Body panels are finished in Seal Grey, and blemishes include scrapes on the underside of the front air dam, a handful of chips on the front bumper, and small flaws on the door as shown in gallery close-ups. The matching hardtop is a retrofitted Porsche item, and the car lacks wiring for the heated rear window. The top is said to produce resonance with the aftermarket exhaust at low RPM.

Turbo-look 18″ alloys wear colored center crests and show curb damage at the right rear. Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires date from 2011 and 2012, and the seller states that the front brake rotors are due for replacement. Color-keyed Speedster humps were manufactured by Zender for Porsche and bear a Porsche part number on the underside. The fabric top is a replacement installed prior to 2014 according to the seller, and is shown raised in the gallery.

Black heated seats are finished in partial leather upholstery with perforated center inserts, and show creasing on the driver-side bolsters. Lloyds floor mats protect the carpets, which show some wear-through and have been patched with gaffer’s tape. A set of generic floor mats is also included. The passenger-side fan and the windshield washer motor and switch were repaired in March 2018.

The center console was refinished in silver by a previous owner. The air conditioning system is said to work well with occasional foam residue coming through the vents. The odometer shows approximately 78k miles, with just under 2000 added by the seller. Flaws include wear on the center stack finishes and buttons, dead LED segments on the factory stereo, and a broken passenger door speaker.

The mid-mounted 3.2L flat-six is concealed beneath the rear storage compartment, and produced 250 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque when new. A 6-speed manual transaxle sends power to the rear wheels. Documented maintenance performed at The Werkshop in Melbourne, Florida since 2014 included installation of an LN Engineering IMS retrofit along with replacement of a crankshaft seal, water pump, thermostat, accessory belt, battery, and oil vapor separator.

Oil changes have reportedly been performed regularly, most recently in November 2017. A Borla exhaust was installed by a previous owner, and the brake bleeder screws were replaced during a recent service. A collection of underbody shots can be found below.
