Up for auction is this 2008 Porsche 987 Cayman S finished in Arctic Silver Metallic over a black leather interior. Based on the highly successful Boxster model, the 987 Cayman was debuted in 2005 as Porsche’s premier mid-engine coupe. Purchased by the current owner last year as a completely stock 2008 example, this Cayman S has since been treated to an extensive list of performance modifications including an adjustable coil over suspension, Wavetrak limited slip differential and upgraded Maxflow exhaust system. Recently outfitted with a replacement flat-six engine as well as a new clutch and flywheel, this Cayman S is said to offer a superb driving experience with approximately 89k miles now showing on the odometer.
The Arctic Silver Metallic finish is noted to be in great shape as can be seen in the images provided in the photo gallery. This Cayman S retains its factory appearance with original 19” SportDesign wheels which come dressed in new Hankook EVO tires installed earlier in 2020.
Inside, this Cayman S features a black standard leather interior with heated and power operated front seats. Other noteworthy factory options include the Bose High End Sound Package, a remote 6-disc CD changer, self-dimming mirrors and rain sensor, the Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package and Preferred Package Plus. The original soft-touch knobs were replaced, and the seller indicates that the Alcantara headliner was redone in 2020 with updated material. The cabin is stated to be in very nice condition with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional.
This 987 carries a 3.4 L flat-six engine which is rated at 295 HP stock. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission providing for a factory 0-60 time of approximately 5 seconds. Unsatisfied with the original motor’s compression, the seller had a replacement 3.4 L engine with 58k miles installed shortly after their purchase at 84k miles. Having seen some use as a track car, this Cayman S has also been upgraded with the following performance modifications:
In November of 2019, the rear main seal was replaced along with the head gasket, ignition coils and spark plugs. A new starter motor was installed in December of 2019 and the clutch flywheel and pressure plate were all replaced in March of 2020. With a recent complete fluid and filter service, this Cayman S is reported to be in fantastic driving condition.
The sale of this Cayman S will include one master key, owner’s books and a collection of service records. The Carfax report shows an accident, though the seller notes that there are no noted issues. For any Porsche enthusiast who demands optimized performance, this 987 Cayman S offers an excelelnt value.
