The Boxster is a modern classic because it really brought Porsche back to its roots of building mid-engined cars with a lot of guts. So it's easy to love a well-maintained higher performance 2001 Porsche Boxster S like this that's in the perfect colors and offered for less than the price of an economy car.
Finished in its original application of Lapis Blue Metallic, this timelessly classy color has a great level of luster that comes from purchasing a premium German product. Hard core enough to be a wonderful track-day weapon, but as reliable as a wood stove so you can drive it every day, no other car manufacturer has yet matched that combination. The shape is instantly recognizable, from the 911-inspired front end, to the air intakes just ahead of the rear wheels, to the center-exit exhaust system, there's nothing else quite like a Boxster. Porsche quality is legendary, and even on a car that's now 15 years old, the fit and finish are notably better than most new cars being built today. You see that in everything from the precision panel fit to the way the doors shut with authority.
The Graphite Gray interior is a great complementing color to the exterior blue, and it's in fantastic condition right down to the carpeting that still looks fresh. The handsome leather bucket seats hold you in place without being constrictive, and the hides remain in exceptionally good shape. Plus, they power adjust so you and your passenger always feel just right. The gauges are big and easy to read, and because it's a true Porsche, the tachometer sits boldly in the center to remind you that the driving experience is this car's top priority. Like any good premium car, this comes loaded with power windows, power locks, cruise control, keyless entry, power steering, and the factory AM/FM/CD stereo. There's a power convertible top to button everything up on rainy days, but the automatic climate control means you can keep the roof down any dry day you want. Because this is a modern classic, there are also great safety features like ABS, dual front airbags, and side airbags. Two trunks, one up front, and one behind the mid-mounted engine, provide a far superior luggage capacity than most other super sleek roadsters.
It's important to recognize the little "S" on this car because it makes a huge difference. Porsche upgraded the Boxster S to a 3.2-liter flat-six, which was worth an 15% jump in horsepower. Its distinctive boxer motor sound and performance exhaust will have you downshifting the tiptronic five-speed automatic under every overpass. This numbers-matching engine fires up easily, which is another hallmark of German precision. The feeling on the road is an experience you'll love thanks to the well-balanced mid engine design and Porsche's fully independent performance suspension. Plus, bright red calipers highlight the four-wheel disc brakes, and you can easily see them through the 17-inch factory alloy wheels.
A true Florida car that shows its actual mileage, this Boxster S is an affordable indulgence that will keep its exceptional quality for years to come. It's time to grab a piece of the good life at a great price. Call today!!!
