Description

2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S with PDK and Sport Chrono Package PORSCHE. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE. A pure sports car with only one mission: to put a huge smile on your face and tingle in your spine. Brand new for 2017, this 718 Boxster is the latest body style high-performance S model with PDK (automatic transmission) and the Sport Chrono package. Make your next trip truly unforgettable as you enjoy the best that California has to offer in a head-turning new 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S. Located near San Jose International Airport (SJC) This is the newest generation of Porsche's venerable mid-engined roadster. The surprisingly practical layout with two trunks (front and rear) can hold roller bag carry-on luggage for two people for a weekend. Please pack carefully as larger luggage will not fit. This S model features a flat-four cylinder engine with Porsche's Le Mans-derived variable vane turbocharger, producing over 350 horsepower and a mountain of low-end torque! Coupled with the sublime PDK transmission and Sport Chrono package, this car's performance is as hot as the eye-catching Guards Red exterior. For the performance-minded enthusiast, this translates to a 3.6 second 0-60 sprint, 11.9 sec in the 1/4 mile with a trap speed of 117 mph, while holding 1.02g on the skidpad (as tested by Car & Driver magazine). The inherent balance of the mid-engine layout combines supercar-level performance with world-class handling and responsiveness. Bottom line: the 718 Boxster S is one of the greatest driving cars available today at any price point. Seamlessly switch between Normal, Sport, and Sport Plus modes for thrilling performance or comfortable commuting. 20" Carrera wheels 7-speed PDK (auto) transmission -- paddle-shift or fully automatic Powerful audio system Soft top fully automatic convertible roof Two-tone black and Bordeaux red leather Bi-Xenon headlights Stunning Guards Red exterior Grippy Goodyear Eagle F1 asymmetric tires Traction control and dynamic stability control USB and Bluetooth integration Sport Chrono package featuring Sport Response Enjoy the fresh California air and scenery with the top down, or cruise in quiet comfort with the roof up at a push of a button.

Guidelines

If you are traveling via SFO, OAK, or SJC airports and your trip is 5 days or longer, please contact me for a complimentary Uber/Lyft to the car's location. No smoking, vaping, eating, drinking, or pets allowed. Return the car in the same condition as rented: washed and returned with premium gas at the level provided (usually full) and place your fuel receipt(s) in the center console. Renter is responsible for all tolls and related charges which will be sent within 30 days after trip end. No track, competitive, autocross, or other off-road use. This car has a GPS tracking device which records harsh braking, violent acceleration, and excessive speed. Car is kept clean and is expected to be returned in the same condition. Each wheel will be photographed before and after the rental. Any damage or curb rash to the wheels may incur a repair fee of $200 per wheel, so be extremely careful when parallel parking. Cleaning fees will be charged if the vehicle is returned dirty, in accordance with Turo policies. Any schedule changes must be authorized through Turo BEFORE communicating them to me. This directly impacts insurance coverage as it is linked with trip time. I am flexible, but for both of our protection all schedule changes must be managed through Turo. Late fees will be assessed if the trip is not modified in a timely manner and the vehicle is returned after the scheduled return time. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about this high-performance vehicle.
