“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today” James Dean
The classically styled Porsche Boxster is a roadster designed to be the ‘spiritual descendant’ of the 356 Speedster and 550 Spyder. The car features large side and front air intakes and a front end that shares a lot of traditional Porsche styling cues. Finished in Porsche Silver with subtle blue leather interior and hood this car is a real head turner. With fantastic service history and low mileage this example has had a very pampered life with the current owner being a true classic car enthusiast.
Reviews indicate that the Boxter is fun and engaging to drive and with the 3.4-liter version powering the Porsche Boxster S receives understandably high praise. Consumer Guide finds that “any Boxster has smooth, ready power for any situation, while S versions are particularly strong as engine speed rises.” The S versions are as close as you can get to Porsche 911-like performance for the price. The Boxster S sports a larger, 295-horsepower, 3.4-liter six-cylinder and a six-speed manual gearbox. Its acceleration to 60 mph with the manual is just 5.1 seconds.
The 2008 Porsche Boxster performs brilliantly, and looks and feels the part, delivering a modern take on the classic roadster experience.
