Now up for auction is this 2006 Porsche 987 Cayman S 3.8 L. Presented in Arctic Silver Metallic, this 2006 example has undergone a custom full engine rebuild with a 3.8 L upgraded displacement providing for a claimed output of up to 400 HP. Having been driven less than 1k miles since the engine rebuild, this 3.8 L U.S.-spec 987 remains in excellent turn-key driving condition with its seller in Canada while showing approximately 86k miles on the odometer.
The Arctic Silver Metallic paint is said to be in very good overall condition with slight stone chipping. Carfax shows minor cosmetic damage to the front end in 2008 which has since been professionally repaired with the refinishing of the front bumper and left front quarter (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Optional Bi-Xenon headlights are equipped and this Cayman rides on a set of aftermarket Braelin wheels which are finished in satin black and dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
The Black standard leather interior is reported in great shape. Factory options include the Bose Surround Sound System, Sport Chrono Package Plus, and heated front seats. GPS navigation has been integrated along with an aftermarket Bluetooth receiver, and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
The original 3.4 L flat-six engine in this 987 has been completely rebuilt with nickel silicon carbide coating and upgraded to a 3.8 L displacement by LN Engineering. During this time all engine components were replaced, APR racing hardware was installed, and the IMS bearing was upgraded with an LN Engineering kit. The engine was then reassembled by ZOROTECH with APR racing hardware and topped off with an FVD Brombacher tune. This engine is claimed to make up to 400 HP with an aftermarket intake, exhaust, and throttle body. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission allowing the driver to take full control of the immediate naturally aspirated power. PASM active suspension is also equipped from the factory. With just over 800 miles driven on the rebuilt engine, this Cayman S is said to be fully broken-in and ready to be enjoyed.
This sale will include a set of 2 keys, the original window sticker, and the owner’s manuals. If you are looking for a mid-engine naturally aspirated sports car, this custom 3.8L Cayman S makes the perfect choice.
