DT: 40k-Mile 2016 Porsche 981 Cayman 6-Speed

Up for auction is this 2016 Porsche 981 Cayman finished in Rhodium Silver Metallic over a black interior. Among the last of the naturally aspirated Cayman models, this final-year 981 features a desirable 6-speed manual transmission as well as factory options including Sound Package Plus, 19” Cayman S wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights, ParkAssist, the Premium Package, and Power Sport Seats with memory.  This two-owner example was originally sold from Beverly Hills Porsche and has remained in California ever since.  Up to date on service and accompanied by a clean CARFAX report, this Cayman is now being offered for auction with just over 40k miles showing on the odometer.

This 981 is finished in Rhodium Silver Metallic and features Bi-Xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) as well as optional 19” Cayman S that are currently dressed in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires showing date codes from 2019.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

Inside, this Cayman features a black standard interior with aluminum-look trim, 14-way Power Sport Seats, the Premium Package, and Sound Package Plus.  Other factory options include the seat memory package, ParkAssist (front and rear), power-folding side mirrors, and CDR Plus audio system.  All original specifications have been retained and the seller reports all accessories and electronics to be fully functional.

This 981 Cayman is equipped with a naturally aspirated 2.7L flat-six engine that sends as much as 275 HP and 213 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a desirable 6-speed manual transmission.  CARFAX shows a history of maintenance carried out by authorized Porsche dealers and the seller reports the last service to have been performed in July of 2020 at 37k miles.  A Porsche vehicle inspection was also carried out in 2021 within the last 400 miles, and the seller states that service records are available from 2018 onward.

This sale will include a set of two keys, the original owner's manuals and literature, some service records, and a clean title. For any discerning driver in search of a Porsche Cayman, this 6-speed 2016 example is not to be overlooked.

    @mannyexxon You can take CARFAX reporting as gospel. Most don't. I don't. I wasn't being obnoxious but your response certainly was. Have a nice life.

  • ChequeredFlag (seller) 2 weeksago

    @Digs We have records, I just don't have one showing the spark plugs were done. I will check with the previous owner to see if he missed something in the records packet.

    @Digs read the listing instead of being obnoxious

    @ChequeredFlag No service records??

  • ChequeredFlag (seller) 2 weeksago

    @Digs Sure but no record of that at the moment. I am sure it would pass the checkout with flying colors but if you're the winning bid, PCar will still keep their portion. Up to you.

    interested but service records seem to be lacking.
    - do you have a record of a 30k mile service and 40k service (including spark plugs?
    - would you be willing to sell subj to a satisfactory PPI done by an authorized indy in your area?
    - transpo to east coast not a problem. Will "truck it", figuratively or literally.

    @dashanin Paint meter readings have been submitted to PCar. Should be up shortly. The front bumper has PPF, as well. Thanks.

    Good looking 981! Could you provide paint meter readings? Is there a PPF on front end?
