Up for auction is this 2006 Porsche 987 Cayman S finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a black standard leather interior. With its nimble mid-engine design, the Cayman offers the perfect platform for a competitive track-going vehicle. Having undergone a custom 3.8L engine build by Vision Motorsports, this 2006 Cayman S has also been upgraded with an AUTO-BLiP system, Quaife limited-slip differential, custom Ceika big brake kit, KW Clubsport coil-overs, GT3 control arms, custom carbon fiber racing seats, and many other performance-oriented modifications. A strong contender that can be driven to and from the track, this street-legal 3.8L Cayman S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York while showing just over 39k miles on the odometer.
This 987 is finished in Arctic Silver Metallic and features custom carbon fiber side air intakes, side skirts, and a rear diffuser from Joe Toth Composites. A removable tow hook has been added to the front and signs of track-going wear are noted throughout the exterior. Additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with a damage-free CARFAX report. This Cayman S rides on a set of black 18” OZ Racing wheels dressed in Nitto01 tires that were installed within the last year. The factory 18” 5-spoke wheels will also be included in the sale along with an additional set of matching OZ Racing wheels wrapped in Hoosier track tires.
The black standard leather interior has been fitted with a custom roll bar, aluminum pedal covers, Sparco Evo racing seats, and Sparco safety harnesses. A Suncoast short shift kit has also been installed along with a control module for the AUTO-BLiP system which is mounted to the right of the steering wheel. All factory airbags and creature comforts have been retained including the A/C, radio, and premium Bose Surround Sound System. Some minor signs of wear have been reported and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional. CARFAX shows a potential odometer rollback, although this is deemed to have likely resulted from clerical error.
In 2014 at just over 27k miles, the original 3.4L flat-six engine was rebuilt by Vision Motorsport and upgraded to a 3.8L displacement. Components installed during this time include JE pistons, Chromoly cylinder liners, Carillo rods, ARP bolts, a GT3 oil cooler, a motorsport air/oil separator, IPD GT3 throttle body with custom intake, TTP tandem oil pump, a deep oil sump, Aasco lightweight flywheel, and a knife-edged case-hardened crankshaft. The engine was rebuilt by Vision Motorsports once again in 2017 at just over 31k miles following a damaged rod bearing. Detailed invoices for both engine builds are provided for reference in the photo gallery.
A claimed output of 355 HP is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox with a sport clutch, Quaife limited-slip differential, and AUTO-BLiP system. Stopping power is handled by a custom Ceika big brake kit including 355mm full-floating rotors paired with 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston calipers in the rear. The suspension has also been overhauled with a KW Clubsport coil-over kit, GT3 front control arms, Tarrett GT3 adjustable sway bars, and Tarrett drop links. Additional upgrades include a Porsche Motorsports Cup power steering pump with stainless steel lines, a third front-mounted radiator, a Braille lightweight lithium-ion battery, an LN Engineering power steering cooler, a Fabspped stainless steel sport exhaust, and an Accusump 3-quart kit with spin-on oil filter. A recent oil change has been carried out along with a brake fluid flush and installation of new Hawk brake pads. Under 6k miles have been driven since the last engine rebuild and the seller describes this Cayman S to be in strong track-ready condition for its next owner.
This sale will include invoices for the engine builds and big brake kit, the set of factory wheels, an additional set of OZ Racing wheels, and a clean title. Offering competitive track-oriented performance without sacrificing road-going convenience, this thoroughly upgraded 3.8L Cayman S is not to be overlooked.
