2005 Porsche Boxster S ***SOLD***

14. September, 2016

 

In January 2005, Porsche’s lower-priced mid-engine sports car  emerged in redesigned form. Both the regular Boxster and the higher-performance Boxster S got major styling revisions, handling enhancements and more powerful engines. Safety features were improved, and the Boxster is the first roadster with head-protection airbags. Porsche calls this the first major makeover since the Boxster debuted as a 1997 model.

In addition to pumping up the Boxster’s looks, Porsche engineers also added some muscle to the two engines. A new intake manifold with larger ducting and internal flaps that vary intake runner length and larger, tuned exhaust manifolds help increase output of the two VarioCam-equipped engines to 240 bhp for the base model and 280 for the S. That translates to a slight improvement in acceleration times and a modest increase in top speed (159 mph for the normal and 161 for the S). To accommodate this increase in horsepower, the base model’s 5-speed manual has been beefed up, while the S’s 6-speed is an all-new gearbox with lower ratios and a lower final drive to accommodate the taller wheels and tires.

A completely redesigned cockpit with a new center console and 911-style seats is set off by a fully adjustable steering column with a 3-spoke steering wheel. Although the instrument pod retains its familiar three-dial layout, the speedometer, tach and gauge modules, which feature black faces for the normal Boxster and white faces for the S, are set farther apart for better viewing. And, like the 911 Cabrio, the Boxster’s all-new powered top can be raised or lowered at speeds up to 30 mph.

This particular Boxster S in a slate gray metallic exterior and a black interior,  is a 2 owner California car that has been well cared for and maintained. The most recent servicing includes having the  water pump replaced along with a brake fluid flushed.
