Here we have an incredibly popular 2010 Porsche Boxster (987) gen2 S, with a fantastic specification and a “PDK” semi-automatic transmission.
First introduced in 1996; the Porsche Boxster was the first sole roadster design the company had produced since the 550 Spyder. The name “Boxster” was taken from the boxer, horizontally opposed, 6cylinder engine design and proved to be the company’s highest volume seller from launch for 7 consecutive years.
Sharing a lot of components with the its 987 Cayman brother; both cars feature the same Mid-Engine chassis layout however the Boxster received a folding roof mechanism in order to allow their owners to enjoy top down motoring. The end result was a finely balanced driver’s car, the 987 Boxster received strong praise from enthusiasts and car journalists alike, making it an extremely popular choice for any Sports Car owner. This particular example is a later model (Gen 2) introduced in 2009, which boasted better build quality and benefited from the more fuel efficient direct injection flat 6 engine.
The “S” variant you see here came with a larger capacity flat 6 engine, 3.4 litres instead of 2.7, which boasts 310bhp and 265lbft of torque. In this particular case the car has been paired up with the sought after “PDK” dual clutch transmission system, these are considered to be one of the best semi-automatic gearboxes available, making it easier to stay in the engine’s power band and providing a much sportier feel to the standard car. This car also features and benefits from PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) and a “Sport” button. Toggling these switches instantly changes the vehicles suspension characteristics and sharpens the throttle response, allowing the driver to opt for a more spirited driving experience whenever they please! A brief summary of the vehicle’s specification can be found here:
- 3.4 Flat 6 engine (310bhp & 265lbft)
- Semi-Auto “PDK” transmission
- 19” twin 5 spoke alloy wheels
- Meteor Grey metallic paint
