2006-2008 Cayman S’s continue to be so much car for the money, they’re a sensational car, that has very few peers in this market, especially given the original purchase prices of double their current day cost! You get so much car with so much performance, a melding of classic Porsche style and modern Porsche conveniences for so much less than these cars cost when they came out. Barely over 3000 pounds, almost 300 Horsepower, 235mm and 265mm section width tires front and back, and a 7200rpm redline. These Cayman S’s are such an incredible joy to drive, dare we say as fun as their 911 Carrera siblings, and just as, if not more nimble than the aforementioned Carreras.
This particular car is really interesting and compelling because it has a very classic and desirable color combo (Silver exterior and Grey interior), and also has a very unique and feature-laden option list from the factory. It’s VERY rare to have a Cayman S with Porsche Active Suspension Management, also called ‘PASM‘ (See THIS link for a good explanation), Sport Chrono Package Plus (check out THIS link for a great explanation of why this option is so great), a Factory Sport Shifter (shortens up the shifts and makes the car feel even sportier), and the ‘Porsche Exclusive’ option of Carrara White instrument dials.
This doesn’t even take into account all the other great options on this build; Heated Seats, 19″ Carrera S Wheels, Bose Surround Sound System, Remote 6 Disc Changer, Self-dimming Mirrors, Full Power Seats, PCM 2.1 (which is Porsche Communications Management, meaning the entertainment and NAV system upgrade on this car). This car comes with a 6 month extended warranty! (Which can be upgraded to a longer duration contract if you so choose)
Here is the full build sheet showing all options and the over $74,000 original purchase price!
The most recent owner of this car was a Doctor who simply never had time to drive it and kept it on a trickle charger in his garage most of the time. The previous owner to him had the car for over 7 years and was CLEARLY a fanatical owner. It comes with a plastic case with tons of receipts going back to the car’s inception. It also includes ALL 3 KEYS (2 Full Keys and 1 plastic wallet key), every manual and book that came from the factory, as well as the original window sticker.
Service Records / Manuals (minus the half a dozen in the glove box) / Window Sticker / 3 keys;
Even more meticulous, the previous owner sent oil samples periodically to Blackstone Labs for analysis to ensure there were no problems with the engine. This is common amongst car geeks and is a great way to tell the condition of the engine. As expected, this was said about the engine from the lab “Great report and a fantastic engine”.
The rest of the car matches the condition of the engine as well. It has zero curb rash on the wheels, the exterior is in amazing condition, and interior is near flawless, look through the pictures, we have tried to capture how immaculate this car is (even though it was an uncharacteristically cloudy day here in San Diego). Click the link towards the top of this page to see the CLEAN CARFAX report showing no accidents. Before selling each car we have a local Porsche mechanic do a thorough Pre Purchase Inspection. This is to show how high quality we think our cars are and to save you the hassle and cost of having to line one up yourself. The PPI came back with a glowing review (as expected!), this is available on request, as is the Lab Report, Carfax, and you can come review the service records as well.
In addition, we are including a 6 month extended warranty! (Which can be upgraded to a longer duration contract if you so choose)
In our opinion, the one real Achilles heel of this era Porsche is the lack of Bluetooth phone connectivity, let alone music streaming. we 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 (one of our favorite tires) Hankook Ventus V12 EVO2 tires in 235/35R19 and 265/35R19 sizes.
- Front TIRES: 9/32″ (90%)
- Rear TIRES: 7/32″ (70%)
- Front ROTORS = 26.9mm (47%)
- Front BRAKE PADS = 7mm (64%)
- Rear ROTORS = 23.6mm (80%)
- Rear BRAKE PADS = 8mm (80%)
We offer some optional upgrades for this car. We have secured a source of All Red Taillights, which are a Porsche OEM Exclusive Option. These are brand new real OEM Porsche taillights, and they change the appearance of the rear of the car quite profoundly. We also partner with some local shops that we feel do A++ work for clear bra paint protection film, window tinting, ceramic coating, and even wrapping if you want to get certain bits of the car wrapped in a contrasting color (such as the mirrors/wing/etc.). Here is an example of the special red tails (on a previous Cobalt Blue Cayman we had in stock);
We are a boutique dealership and really want to build relationships with customers and hope whoever buys this car treats it well and then comes back for us to buy it again when its 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 love these cars and think they’re one of the best values in the sports car market. We have found that the 2006-2008 Cayman S will convert anybody into a Porsche fanatic after even a single drive behind the wheel.
