2013 - Porsche Boxster on 2040-cars
Ragsdale, Indiana, United States
Infotainment Package with BOSE speaker system Premium Package Porsche Torque Vectoring PTV PDK Package 20" Carrera Wheels PASM Package Sport Chrono Package Sport Stearing Wheel Launch Controls Paddle Shifters Leather Premium Power Sport Seats Heated Seats Red Calipers Sport Mode Sport Plus Mode Sport Suspension Mode MSRP was $80,200!! I have the original window sticker. PLUS, I have already paid for all of the routine maintenance for the first 36,000 miles!...this transfers with the car along with the remaining Porsche warranty. I have looked online and have not been able to find another Boxster S Launch Edition with as many options as this one! There are three that come close, but are missing at least one option here or there. I am the original owner and purchased it new at Bluegrass Porsche in Louisville, KY. To tell you how loaded up this car is the MSRP was $80,200. You will notice it has the 20" 911 Wheels with red calipers and p-zero tires. The most impressive thing about this Boxster over any others is that it has Launch Controls. To active the Launch Controls you first put the car in "Sport Plus" mode (which also activates the racing suspension), then you hold the break down, put the gas pedal to the floor, wait a second for the "Launch" light to light up on the steering wheel..and then let off the gas!! I have only tried it one time and it was ridiculous. With that said, the car has NEVER been on a track or driven over 90 mph. I like all the bells and whistles, but in the end I just putz around town. The convertible top only takes 6 seconds to go up or down...and you can put it down anytime as long as you are going 25 mph or less. You will also notice in the pictures that it has Navigation (both on the screen and in a second screen next to the speedometer). The screen to the right of the speedometer scrolls between the radio, XM, iPod, Bluetooth, Phone, Navigation...it has a G-Force Gauge that measures the G-forces you are feeling in ANY direction in real time. There is also a track Chronometer in case you wanted to time yourself on a track or from 0-60. The seats are leather and are the 32-way adjustable seats (the top of the line that Porsche offers). The clock on the dash is also another track timer in addition to being a normal clock. Heated seats...XM Radio...Bluetooth, PCM "Porsche Control Management" system. There are three modes...normal...sport...and sport plus. In addition you can turn on the sport/track suspension anytime you like. The PDK Transmission is so smooth. You will notice that it has the sport steering wheel and the paddle shifters...which work better than any other car I have ever had. The car will allow you to use the paddle shifters anytime you want...but if it decides you need to shift, it will take over again automatically...this car can out think you and out shift you...there is no need to have a manual anymore. Of course it also has the premium BOSE stereo system with surround sound. I always keep it in the garage. When I purchased it, I paid for all of the routine scheduled maintenance for the first 36,000 miles. I also paid extra for the wheel and tire coverage. Since the tires are so low-profile (and expensive to replace) I wanted to make sure they were covered to be safe. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. I have additional photos I can share. I do not need to sell it, and as much as I appreciate a good low ball offer (because I have made a few of those myself in the past), I love it and would keep it rather than let it go for cheap. With this one being so nice, I deserves a good home with someone who is willing to pay a reasonable price for an awesome car! :) I have the original window sticker. I could only get 24 photos on eBay, but if you would like a copy of the window sticker I am happy to email it to you. If you are wondering why I am selling it...I have small kids and need something with a back seat. If you have a 2012 - 2014 BMW 6 Series Xdrive convertible and are looking to trade, let me know. I would also consider a newer Porsche Panamara, Audi S7, Mercedes 4matic (C, CLS, or S class). Cheers, John

The Porsche Boxster and Cayman will forever nip at the heels of their big brother, the 911 Carrera, and perpetuating this tradition are the latest GTS variants, which add yet another arrow to the quiver of the plucky mid-engined platform.
The GTS' performance enhancements boost horsepower by a mere 15 and shave a tenth from 0 to 60, but Porsche's clever product planners and engineers have stuck to their familiar formula in making the Cayman GTS more desirable than the Boxster for dyed-in-the-wool performance enthusiasts. More on that shortly.
Laps around Spain's Circuito Mallorca RennArena and the nearby Serra de Tramuntana mountain range would shed further light on how the GTS differentiates itself from lesser Caymans.
An Iconic Sports Car, Restored to Seduce
I have been strapped behind the iconic Momo Prototipo steering wheel for a little more than an hour, all windows down as I carve my way up a rugged canyon during an unusually warm Southern California evening, and I am overwhelmed with emotion. My heart is pounding out of my chest, my breathing is heavy and my palms are sweaty because I am completely absorbed by this wondrous machine.
After waiting patiently for nearly four years, I am finally behind the wheel of a classic Porsche 911 restored, modified and tuned by Singer Vehicle Design. The vehicle that surrounds me never rolled off an automaker's assembly line in its current configuration, yet its physical appearance is timeless, build quality breathtaking and driving dynamics peerless.
Porsche collector Magnus Walker has the name and looks of a Viking, but once he starts talking about his life story and what drives him, he's an absolutely fascinating guy. Walker recently gave a Ted Talk at a Tedx conference at UCLA and claimed he didn't really understand the idea behind the speeches. You would never know it, though. Walker is as gifted a speaker as he is a talented restorer of some seriously cool Porsches.
Walker's talk is titled "Go with Your Gut Feeling," and it amounts to his autobiography. He recounts his birth in England, dropping out of school at 15 and moving to the US at 19. Once in Los Angeles, he started selling second-hand clothes and grew it into a fashion business.
Of course, what makes him interesting to us is his passion for Porsches. He fell in love with them when he saw a white 911 as a child at the Earl's Court Motor Show in England, but Walker waited until the '90s to buy his first one. From there he started racing and eventually restoring them. Since the documentary Urban Outlaw about him was released, Magnus has become famous for the love of the brand.
