This 2001 Porsche Boxster S by TechArt features a highly specialized widebody kit developed by the aftermarket tuner after the success of the widebody 996 Carrera they first showed in 2000. Delivered new in May of 2001, this Boxster S is finished in the attractive Boxster concept color scheme of Arctic Silver Metallic over Boxster Red leather interior. The TechArt widebody adds 8 cm to the front and rear tracks of the car, which allows for wider wheels and tires to sit beneath the car. A revised front bumper with larger cooling ducts keeps fresh air flowing over the brakes while also reducing lift at speed up front. In the rear, a small auxiliary wing helps balance out the front downforce.
The interior is finished in extended Boxster Red leather, which is a stunning contrast to the silver exterior and presents in very good condition. A custom TechArt steering wheel with a thicker rim and perforated leather fitted with the TechArt logo embossed in the center. The center stack, transmission tunnel, and air vent surrounds are all finished in body color, giving the car a more modern appearance, and TechArt drilled aluminum pedals have been installed.
Powering this Boxster S is a 3.2 liter flat-6 that produces 250 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque and will rev to 7,200 rpm. This engine sends power to the rear wheels through a 5-speed Tiptronic S gearbox with steering wheel-mounted shift buttons that offers simple in town driving while also letting you hold gears on your favorite back road. A set of red Porsche brake calipers with drilled rotors sit behind 18” multi-piece TechArt wheels wrapped in Dunlop SportMaxx tires.
