2004 Porsche Boxster S 550 Spyder 1 of 1953 Anniversary EditionVehicle Overview
|2004 Porsche Boxster S 550 Spyder Special Edition 1 of 1953 6 speed Manual just 32k miles!|
Celebrity Cars Las Vegas is pleased to offer this very rare piece of Porsche history. With only 1953 produced you will will be hard pressed to find another one, especially with just 32k miles and in immaculate condition!
This special edition only offered in 2004, was designed to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the legendary Porsche 550 Spyder made famous by James Dean. To be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in early January 2004, the new "50 Years of the 550 Spyder" Boxster S reflects the spirit of one of Porsche's most famous models.
The Boxster is styled after the 550 Spyder, with similar bodylines, mid-engine roadster configuration, low weight, excellent agility, and a high level of driving pleasure. The new commemorative Boxster S further reflects this classic Porsche model with performance enhancements and additional styling cues not previously available on Boxster models.
For added performance, the new Boxster S edition is equipped with the most powerful engine ever offered in the Boxster model line at the time. Rated at 264 horsepower (SAE), the 3.2-liter flat-six cylinder power plant propels the car from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.7 seconds, and to a top track speed of 165 mph (266 km/h). Sportier suspension settings, 5 mm-wide wheel spacers on all four wheels, and standard 18-inch Carrera wheels improve handling, while a 15 percent shorter shift travel in the standard six-speed manual transmission provides quicker gear shifting.
As most 550 Spyders were painted silver, the new special edition Boxster S is finished in GT Silver Metallic, a color only found on the Carrera GT and "40 Years of the 911" models. The soft top and interior are in Cocoa, a dark brown color used by Porsche for the first time. For additional visual emphasis, wheel spokes are painted in Seal Grey, a colored Porsche crest adorns each wheel hub cover, and the monoblock brake calipers have an aluminum paint finish. Other exclusive exterior styling features include silver-painted grills above the rear strut openings, a specially created stainless steel tailpipe, chrome plated, and safety bar padding that matches the car's interior.
Cocoa and GT Silver dominate the car's special interior with matching carpet and floor mats featuring the Porsche script logo. The floor mats shown in the car are aftermarket but the original mats are including with the car as shown in the photos. The center panels of the standard heated seats, handbrake lever, gear lever gate, ball-shaped aluminum gearshift knob with short throw shifter, inside door handles, and padded sport steering wheel are covered in Cocoa colored leather. The rear section of the center console, handbrake lever, grooved bar on the dashboard, switch panel, and the back of the safety bars are painted in GT Silver Metallic. Instruments are uniquely styled with black faces surrounded by chrome plated decorative rings. Don't miss out on this low mileage rare find!
This example has a clean Carfax, clear bra on half of the front of the car. It has some minor curb rash on the front passenger side wheel but the rest are in excellent shape. It has always been garaged and serviced here in Las Vegas. It was sold new in California then almost immediately went to Las Vegas where it has spent all of its life so no risk of rust. It has always been serviced at the Porsche dealership and was previously owned by a Porsche dealership employee. No expense has been spared caring for this rare piece of Porsche history.
