Pairing a 6-speed manual transmission with its 3.4-liter flat-six engine, this 2006 Porsche 987 Cayman S comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over black leather upholstery and features 18” Boxster S wheels, a Sport Steering Wheel, the Power Seat Package, the Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package, a Bose Surround Sound System and much more. Initially delivered in Michigan, this example was imported to Alberta, Canada in April 2010 where it is now being offered for auction at no reserve while showing approximately 148k kilometers (92k miles) on the odometer.

Featuring a sleek fastback design inspired by vintage Porsche racing cars, this Cayman comes finished in Arctic Silver Metallic. Red painted brake calipers can be seen behind optional 18” Boxster S wheels with colored Porsche center crests and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires from 2015 and 2016. The seller notes a crack in the windshield, several small hail dents, some road wear on the front bumper and hood, and a small scratch on the rear quarter panel. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin is appointed with Black standard leather and features heated front seats, the Power Seat Package, a Sport steering wheel, and black Porsche-branded floor mats. Amenities include the Bose Surround Sound System, self-dimming mirrors and rain sensors, the Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package, and a rear window wiper. The seller notes some wear on the driver’s side window switches, seat, and doorsill, as well as the center console. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.

A naturally aspirated 3.4-liter flat-six engine sends up to 295 HP and 251 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission. An Active Brake Differential (ABD) comes standard along with a 4-piston monobloc brake system, Porsche Stability Management (PSM), variable-ratio power steering, and a speed-activated rear spoiler. The seller states that the engine block was replaced at 75k kilometers, the clutch and brakes were replaced at 125k kilometers, and the starter was replaced at 145k kilometers. No outstanding maintenance items have been reported.

This sale will include a clean title, owner’s manuals, and a toolkit.

The seller would like you to know:This Cayman S is a great driver's car, and it is in great running condition.”

    I meant to add the DME report earlier. It is now in the photos and was taken just now (I have a Durametric). It shows only range 1 and 2 ignitions, which is as good as it gets. The first number is the quantity of ignitions and the second number is the operating time that it occurred. Near the bottom is the total operating hours, so deduct the number of hours of the occurrence from the total hours to find out how recently it happened.

    @RJ80 yep. Everything works as it should. Cold AC, hot seat heaters, auto dimming mirrors, smooth shifts. It is perfect for a driver that doesn't want to worry about keeping it pristine. That was my dilemma when deciding if I should sell this one or my 911

  • RJ80 (registered bidder) 8 months, 4 weeksago

    @bekks Thanks for all that, apparently I didn't understand the Canadian registration process.

    Everything works? Air conditioning is cold, heater is warm? No clunks or rattles from suspension?

    Previously I've been chasing pristine cars at higher prices, but I like that I could drive this one without worrying too much.

  • bekks (seller) 8 months, 4 weeksago

    @RJ80 I have owned the car for a little over two years and throughout that time it has been registered in my name. Pcarmarket has taken a copy of my registration (we don't have "titles" in Canada, but a registration acts the same way) as proof of this.

    I am the third Canadian owner and it was the first Canadian owner who had the engine block replaced. The first Canadian owner may have also been the last American owner, I'm not sure.

    I do my own maintenance, so I have changed the oil annually (5000 km at the most). I do have a few small additional receipts from the last owner, but I think he also did his own oil changes.

    I've used it only for summer drives, including two autocross days.

    I did not have it bore scoped.

    If you did fly in to pick it up I could certainly help with picking you up.

  • RJ80 (registered bidder) 8 months, 4 weeksago

    @bekks I'm thinking of doing a fly in/drive home since I'm in the northwest corner of the U.S.

    A couple things I can't figure out from the information supplied: 1) Did you ever title/register this car in your name? You say the engine was replaced by a previous owner, but there are only two owners on the Carfax and the second one did the engine replacement. 2) I see zero evidence of regular oil changes since the new engine went in. Do you have any records or other evidence for those? 3)How has this car been used in your ownership and where did you service it? Was it ever re-bore scoped before your purchase?

    I talked to an agent at the site I linked to and he said it should be easy. Just make sure to contact him (or whatever importer you choose) before arranging the trip as it takes a couple days to get the paperwork approved.

  • bekks (seller) 9 monthsago

    Added two new photos. One showing the sticker starting that the vehicle complies to US DOT requirements and one stating the emissions requirements are met. I'm still not sure these are necessary since it is a USDM car, but perhaps they are the proof of that claim. An importer might want to see these.

    @Beto8792 Sorry, I don't have that, but I am pretty confident it isn't necessary

  • Beto8792 (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    @bekks Do yo have a copy or the original of the title at the time it was registered in the US?

  • MurderMammoth (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    @bekks thank you! Super helpful.

  • MurderMammoth (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    @Beto8792 double clutching is a Steve McQueen thing. You do it when you know you’re cool! Lol

  • bekks (seller) 9 monthsago

    I took a quick look at importing a vehicle into the US and got a quote for $750 for them to do the paperwork. I suggest anyone interested to call an importer, so you're comfortable with the process.

    @Beto8792 Double clutching - it's habit and a little smoother engagement. It's not necessary as the synchros will do their job.

  • Beto8792 (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    Why do you press the clutch twice before shifting?

  • bekks (seller) 9 monthsago

    Don't know if this is helpful for anyone, but I got my wife to record a bit of a drive today.

  • MurderMammoth (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    @bekks Perfect! Thank you!

  • bekks (seller) 9 monthsago

    @MurderMammoth Actually, it can be switched between km and miles with a few clicks. Odometer and speedometer

  • MurderMammoth (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    @bekks thank you! Even though the car is from the US, the odometer is in km and not miles and cannot be switched on the gauges via the onboard controls, correct?

  • bekks (seller) 9 monthsago

    @MurderMammoth Sorry, I am not familiar with the process. I'll see if I can find a simple "how-to". I believe it is simple, since the car is originally from the States

  • MurderMammoth (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    By chance, do you know the process and costs to get the car into the US as well as the ins/outs for the title transfer? Thank you in advance and GLWTA.

  • bekks (seller) 9 monthsago

    @AZCollector Yes, engine replacement, clutch, and brakes have receipts. I'll try to get a photo of them uploaded

  • AZCollector (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    Do you have any receipts for the engine replacement, and other maintenance that has been done to the car?

    @grant.ackney 29, 31, 32, 33 show the hail spots the best - that's all there is. It was valued at $1000 to repair, so it is quite light.

    The block had bore scoring, as diagnosed by Porsche. Porsche replaced the block with a new one and split the cost three ways between the owner at the time, the local Porsche dealership, and Porsche Canada. I have the paper work for this.

  • grant.ackney (registered bidder) 9 monthsago

    In picture 29 would that be the typical size of the hail damage? And where are the most visible areas of this on the Car? Also, what's the story with the engine block replacement? Thanks for your time.

    Hello folks. Looking forward to passing this car off to the new owner (and freeing up some garage space). If you have any questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer.
