Wow, this car has us (almost) at a loss for words. We have been looking for a Carrara White (yes, that’s the color, not Carrera white, but rather Carrara) 987.1 (internal Porsche designation of the first gen Cayman) Cayman S since we opened our doors. White on Black, or any interior color actually, turns out to be quite rare, so it’s really rather hard to part with this one. We have a particularly strict policy about sourcing only the finest cars, and this is one of the finest we have ever had!
This car has had a mere 2 owners, both here in California. It, of course, has a clean Carfax, and has clearly been owned by fanatics/enthusiasts. It seems fairly clear that this car was well loved and cared for, as represented by the fact that it was in immaculate condition when it came into our hands. The interior and the exterior are near flawless. With ZERO CURB RASH on the wheel, ZERO DENTS / DINGS, and an interior that’s truly in excellent condition, and of course it has only 39,700 miles on it (that’s only 3,609 miles / year!).
The Over Rev Report shows that this car has not been abused in any way and shows a mere 4.5 seconds at redline over the course of this car’s life! (See picture gallery for report)
This car is a real joy to drive. It has that unique Porsche flat boxer engine sound, develops 295HP, and only weighs 2954 pounds. The engine pulls hard when rowing through the gears all way from idle to the upper revs, and the steering and suspension feels tight and is ultra-responsive.
It comes with both keys, a full set owners manuals, and some service records.
It has a very nice factory build, and we are excited to see that the original buyer spec’d it out with just the right amount of options. You still get the highly desirable manual seats, but also get the Bi-Xenon Headlamps, and the FULL LEATHER INTERIOR (which looks brilliant, contrast stitching on the door panels, center console, leather covered dash, so very cool). Factory Build;
In our opinion, the one real Achilles heel of this era Porsche is the lack of Bluetooth phone connectivity, let alone music streaming. We have addressed this by adding a Bluetooth Phone and Streaming Music solution. It’s been added to the stock stereo system, so you get to keep the style, look, and feel of the stock stereo, and also now have the option to stream your music from your phone and to make calls!
All its “consumables” (Rotors, Brake pads, Tires) are in excellent shape. It comes with a very high-end ultra-performance tire, the Continental Contisport Contact 3, in 235/40R18, and 165/40R18 sizes.
- Front TIRES: 7.5/32″ (75%)
- Rear TIRES: 5.75/32″ (58%)
- Front ROTORS = 26.85mm (43%)
- Front BRAKE PADS = 8mm (73%)
- Rear ROTORS = 23.39mm (70%)
- Rear BRAKE PADS = 8mm (80%)
It currently has optional OEM Porsche Red Tailights installed. We have secured a source for this “Porsche Exclusive Option”, these lights are not reflected in the asking price and are a $550 option, which includes installation. We think the White exterior REALLY contrasts beautifully with the red lights and would absolutely put them on our own Carrara White car! But if you like it with the standard red/clear taillights, we can easily swap back to those as well.
All of our cars undergo a complete detail process to ensure the exterior is free of any contaminants, road tar residue, even swirl marks, and then we protect it with a modern silica-based hydrophobic sealant for protection and shine. We also offer exterior protection upgrades, such as Ceramic Coating which protects the finish even more and makes washing even easier. We also partner with some local shops that we feel do A++ work for clear bra paint protection film, window tinting, and even wrapping.
This car is definitely something special. We have a mantra here at Bright Motorcars, “You buy the condition not the color”, which to us means recommending to people to place their specific color choices backseat to the overall condition of a car. With this car, you get both in one package, condition, which is exemplary, and the stunning Carrara White on Black Full Leather!
We are a boutique dealership and really want to build relationships with customers and hope whoever buys this car treats it well and then returns for us to buy it back when it’s time for them to upgrade to a different car! Our focus is and will always be to represent cars that are the finest, cleanest, and best of breed vehicles, this car is exactly that! We REALLY think they’re one of the best values in the sports car market. We have found that the Cayman S will convert anybody into a Porsche fanatic after even a single drive behind the wheel.
