THE APPEAL


Two-seater open-top sports cars don’t come much better than this. The affordable Porsche Boxster S continues the legendary build quality of it’s sibling’s and is without doubt a tried and tested car you can enjoy everyday.

The unmistakable sounding 3.2-litre flat-six boxer engine provides brisk performance with a 0-60 time of around 5.5 seconds, and along with the perfectly balanced chassis and fine handling, offers an intoxicating drive.

From new, this particular Boxster S was purchased with a host of optional extras at a cost of over £6,000 and we can see from the well documented paper trail that, mechanically speaking, it has been regularly serviced by Porsche specialists.

This beautiful example also looks very seductive in metallic Midnight Blue and has clearly led a pampered life. It also benefits from a recent suspension rebuild, a new insulated hood and lighting upgrades to keep it on form and up to date.

The Gallery

The safest way to buy a classic car online

Once the transfer of the vehicle is complete, both parties confirm they are happy with the sale and the money is released to the seller.
Safe, secure payment process

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
