2003 Porsche Boxster Roadster S Convertible 2-door 3.2l on 2040-cars
looks better than new
Athens, West Virginia, United States
Stop looking for a Boxster S - you've found the best one for sale on the market. From full options to complete service records (including the IMS upgrade kit - Google it), this has everything. EVERYTHING.
I lucked out and bought this one-owner Porsche a few years ago, and it is like a family member. Full records and receipts from original bill of sale to last service. Meticulously maintained in every way, by two OCD owners (I'm the second). Intermediate-Shaft Bearing upgrade kit installed - if you don't know what this is, Google it, and don't even THINK about buying a Boxster without it. ($2000 upgrade)
Options-wise, it has everything, from heated seats to the Bose sound, Carrera wheels, factory rocker panels, second set of winter "Cup" wheels, Speedster fiberglass covers (pictured), Xenon headlights, indoor and outdoor covers, multiple weather cabin covers, Borla exhaust system (factory exhaust included as well), LED tail-light upgrade...it's a huge list.
Full-synthetic oil, always, and Blackfire polishes and waxes. This exterior looks better than new. Inside, BMW leather products have kept it supple and clean, and it has factory carpet mats, as well as a winter-set of WeatherTech (not that it has ever seen snow).
This is easily a 3% car - Porsche owners generally maintain their vehicles to a high standard, but this one is one of, if not THE best 986-S models for sale anywhere in the US. It needs nothing. It runs flawlessly. It is heartbreaking to have to sell it. Serious inquiries, call or text.

About 30 years before Ferdinand Porsche designed the Volkswagen Beetle, he created the Egger-Lohner electric vehicle, C.2 Phaeton model - or simply, the P1 - you see above. This was the first vehicle created by Porsche, and the car gets its nickname from the fact that he had stamped "P1" on many of the parts marking it as the first Porsche... sorry, 356 No. 1.

Now while you'd think that such an important piece of Porsche heritage has been in a museum or even the automaker's not-so-secret lair, it has actually been sitting at a warehouse for the last 112 years. Thankfully, that's all about to change as Porsche has recovered P1, and the car will soon be on "permanent display" at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.
The P1 has a 3 horsepower motor capable of delivering a top speed of 21 miles per hour and a driving range of 49 miles, and, like many vehicles in Porsche's history, the motor is positioned at the rear of the vehicle. According to the press release posted below, the P1 finished first in a 24-mile electric vehicle race in Berlin in 1899, but it has been sitting since 1902.
Gemballa went through the ringer last year, but rebounded with products that signal a complete turnaround. The latest is the recently-released Porsche 911 Carrera S with a Gemballa GT aerodynamics and technology package. Aero-wise, it includes carbon fiber additions beginning with a front bumper wearing the classic Gemballa air intake design and a lower, angrier splitter. New side skirts run from wheel to wheel, the final piece being a rear bumper in three sculpted horizontal sections featuring a rear diffuser tucked between six rectangular exhaust tips.

No engine mods have been made, but the technology part of the tune - springs that are 30 millimeters shorter yet still able to work with the PASM system - is claimed to make the car faster. Bringing things to a halt is a new Brembo brake system hiding behind 21-inch GForged wheels that are lighter than Porsche's standard 20-inchers.
The Gemballa GT aero kit runs €19,860 ($26,070 U.S.), which includes paint and installation if you happen to be in Germany, and we're assuming that includes the suspension modification, brakes and sport exhaust. The GForged wheels are another €9,895 ($12,989 U.S.) depending on your choice of tire. Check out the press release below for more info, and the photo gallery above for all the angles.
Porsche was first rumored to be working on a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of the Cayenne over a year ago. However, we had never seen it, until now. The new model was caught almost completely undisguised while testing. In another stroke of luck, we got a glimpse of the upcoming facelift for Porsche's SUV (pictured above) as well.
According to the spy shooter, it was windy during the cars' cold weather testing. The cover blew off of the facelifted Cayenne, and there was enough time to snap these pictures before it could be hidden again. The changes are all quite minor but jive with what we saw the last time it was spied. The rear still wears some cladding but is expected to be hiding lights similar to the Macan.
The second gallery shows off the upcoming Cayenne PHEV. It looks nearly identical to the standard model, except for the extra panel on the driver's side of the car that hides the electric port. One image even shows the car plugged in. The new version is expected to use the same supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and 9.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack with a combined 416 horsepower and 435 pound-feet of torque from the Panamera S E-Hybrid. We enjoyed the system when we tested it last year. It's rumored to debut on the SUV sometime this year.
