|Model||Cayman S 3.4|
Launched in 2008, the S Sport was a run out special model for the first generation of Cayman with only 700 being produced and believed only one of 68 RHD in the UK. With a 3.4 litre flat 6 engine, a 6 speed manual box and 303 bhp. This Porsche Cayman S Sport is a rare version of the 987 model, with performance-enhancing upgrades and some unique factory finishes. Just 68,725 miles and 4 owners.
The Cayman S Sport features a Porsche Sports Exhaust, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with a 10mm drop in ride height, and Sport Chrono package. It was also equipped with hard-backed sport seats, gloss black exterior and interior trim elements, and the Alcantara-trimmed 997 GT3RS steering wheel and gear knob. Also 19-inch alloy wheels with 5mm spacers as standard.
Our Basalt Black car, registered in March 2009, also has heated leather seats with embossed headrests, climate control, PCM with extended navigation module, and the Bose surround-sound system with CD player. It is fitted with the Litronic bi-xenon headlights, rear parking sensors, red tail lights, a fixed rear wing, and the front lip spoilers.
The car sits on 19-inch Turbo style alloy wheels, which are in great condition.
The bodywork and paint is in good order and it has recently been machine polished and ceramic coated. The paint does have stone chips around the front and near the side vents, as shown in the photo gallery, though only what you would expect given the age and mileage.
In the cabin, the black leather upholstery is in very good order, with very slight wear on the driver’s side bolster, but otherwise only showing signs of light use.
The last service was in June 2020 at 68,967 miles Porsche independent Eporsch near Woking. This service also included renewal of the brake fluid, coolant, and a new coolant pipe. The air-conditioning has also been recently re-gassed.
The most recent MOT test was on 18 August 2020 at 68,725 miles, which it passed at the first attempt with no advisories whatsoever. The wheels are shod in Porsche N2-rated Pirelli P Zero tyres in size 235/35 ZR19 at the front and 265/35 ZR19 at the front. All four are date-coded to 2019 and are in great condition, with at least 6mm of tread.
Accompanying the car are all of the original books, including the stamped maintenance record, as well as a good history file of paperwork. There are also the original tools, warning triangle, and two keys present.
This is a rare opportunity to buy a limited edition Porsche. The Cayman S Sport is a rare version of the marque’s celebrated mid-engined sports car. Harry Metcalfe wrote in Evo magazine that the Cayman Sport was “rare, handsome and fantastic to drive”, and this is a great opportunity to acquire a very well-presented example.
