When the 987 (internal Porsche designation of the first gen Cayman) was released it simply blew people away. One auto journalist stated: “It’s what the Boxster should have been from the get go”. It’s a perfect blend of style, functionality, mid-engine driveline, power, weight, and handling. It’s truly one of our favorite models Porsche has released in the past 15 years, and while the prices for these have dropped, the performance, fun, and cachet associated with them has not! With ONLY 10 pounds of weight per horsepower this car REALLY moves, and comes with massive 235 and 265 sectional width tires for incredible agility on twisty roads.
This is a particularly interesting Cayman S, we call it the “Sport Cayman“. Now let’s be honest, ALL CAYMAN’S are damn sporty cars, they are sort of the epitome of a sports car actually. But this one is really geared towards being a driver-focused car. What do we mean by that? The previous owner had pretty much the coolest aftermarket upgrade installed on the car. A Numeric brand Short Throw Shifter CNC milled from billet aluminum and Numeric Performance Shifter Cables. This short shift kit is a work of art, its used by just about every Porsche racing team, provides a 40% throw reduction, and is truly the most rewarding and engaging shifter we have ever felt. This car would make a great daily driver that you occasionally took to the track for driving schools and track days. Here is what the shifter looks like installed with the shift knob and boot removed (so you can basque in its beauty).
This car has been exceptionally well-maintained, from the wheels with ZERO CURB RASH, to the body with ZERO DENTS / DINGS, to the interior that’s truly in excellent condition, and of course, it has only 25,900 miles on it (that’s only 2,354 miles / year!). It has a CLEAN CARFAX report showing no accidents, and the overall condition and paint support that nicely. Between the exceptional shine to the Lapis Blue paint, contrasted with the beautiful Sand Beige interior to the overall condition, we are smitten with this car. It drives as nice as it looks, and still feels like an almost new car (35,000 miles + conscientious owners = 10 year old car that feels like new).
To show that we think this car is exceptional we are including a 6 month extended warranty! (Which can be upgraded to a longer duration contract if you so choose)
The one real Achilles heel of this era Porsche is the lack of Bluetooth phone connectivity, let alone music streaming. This has been addressed and Bluetooth Phone and Streaming Music capabilities have been added to 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 235/40R18 and 265/40R18 sizes.
- Front TIRES: 9.5/32″ (95%)
- Rear TIRES: 8.5/32″ (85%)
- Front ROTORS = 27.45mm (72%)
- Front BRAKE PADS = 9mm (81%)
- Rear ROTORS = 23.66mm (83%)
- Rear BRAKE PADS = 9mm (90%)
We have all 3 keys for this car (2 full function keys and 1 plastic wallet key for you surfers and sports people who dont want to lock the car and put the key on the tire while out and about).
This car has a really nice factory optioned build with just the right options;
- Heated & Powered Seats
- Bluetooth Audio Streaming and Phone Calls
- Bose High-End Sound Package Stereo System
- Remote CD Changer
- Self-Dimming Mirrors and Rain Sensor Wipers
- Bi-Xenon Headlamps
We can’t believe there are still 987 Cayman’s from this era with this kind of mileage and are super excited when we find them in this condition to offer to customers. We are a boutique dealership and really want to biuld 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 987 Cayman S will convert anybody into a Porsche fanatic after even a single drive behind the wheel.
We offer some ‘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);
