2006 Porsche Cayman S
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ98Z7U771134
Registration Number: SN56 CNC
Recorded Mileage: 77,000 miles
Seeing the need to bridge the gap between the Boxster and the 911, Porsche created the Cayman S. In short, it's a hardtop version of the Boxster. The two cars share the same basic design, which means a mid-engine layout, rear-drive, and two seats. The Cayman's engine is more powerful, its suspension tuning is stiffer and it offers more sport-oriented options than the Boxster.
The Cayman S also boasts better versatility thanks to its hatchback design. Under that rear hatch, there's 9.1 cubic feet of storage -- twice that of a Boxster. And under that storage space, ahead of the rear axle, is the Cayman S's 24-valve four-cam 3.4-liter flat-six engine bolted to a six-speed manual transmission. Based on the Boxster S's 3.2 six, the Cayman S's 295-hp six draws its inspiration from a variable intake manifold, cylinder heads imported from the 911 Carrera S, and the 911's VarioCam Plus variable valve timing and lift. But very few cars approach performance the way the Cayman S does. If your idea of fun is just heading out to mountain roads on the weekend for no other reason than to just drive, you're going to love this car.
Delivered to its first owner in November 2006, optioned in Arctic Silver with an Ocean Blue Leather interior and red brake calipers, this well maintained early Cayman S has formed part of a small classic car collection in recent times. In current ownership the Porsche has been maintained by local Porsche specialists, and has just been serviced prior to sale (including a new waterpump and battery). A nice upgrade is a full stainless steel sports exhaust, which improves breathing and acoustics without being intrusive.
With a sensible 77,000 miles recorded, the Cayman is offered with a fresh MoT certificate in addition to a stamped service book and owners manual. The Cayman S is a return to what the 911 used to be - a focused driver's car, and this good example surely merits closer inspection.
