2008 Porsche Cayman S

Recently I looked at an interesting special-order color Cayman that had a few too many mods in an off-beat color combination to really be desirable:

Well, I’m back with another odd color combination on a Cayman S, but I think this one is a whole lot more desirable. So let’s check out this Forest Green Metallic over Sand Beige leather 987 S:

The seller shouts this one out as a Cayman Design Edition in the teaser, but I am pretty sure it is not as those were black with stripes. Of course, they also say that it’s got gray leather in the teaser, when it is clearly tan inside. What we have is a nicely equipped Cayman S in the unusual Forest Green Metallic and the color looks great. It’s got heated and leather-covered sports seats, a three-spoke sport steering wheel, 19″ Sport Design wheels, automatic climate control, Sport Chrono Package Plus, bi-xenon headlights, and the Preferred Package, which added color crests on the wheels, self-dimming mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, Bose, the aforementioned seat heaters, and tan floor mats. Condition appears to be good over, but it’s also not super low mileage and it’s definitely not pristine. The paint protection film in particular looks a bit tired. Still, it’s got less mileage than the last car, is more stock, is a nicer color combination, and is $4,000 cheaper. At $25,000, a nice example of the Cayman S seems to offer a lot of performance and the Porsche driving experience for not a lot of money. Upgrade the IMS and drive away without worrying about residual value!

    IMS is not serviceable on this model but more durable.

    That color looks like the 997.2 911 launch edition color for 2009. I looked at several when I was searching. Nice color, but too metallic for my taste. Amusing that the dealer says “VERY LOW MILEAGE” …not at 63K.

    That is a really nice looking Cayman. That green is a really great color. Again, IMS issues affect a tiny number of cars compared to what the internet would like you to believe. Single digit numbers are affected. And yes, funny about the “very low mileage”…20k is low mileage. 63k is just reasonable.

    Tim is correct – the 2006-2008 (plus some 2005s) M96/M97 engines have a more reliable IMSB, but they can also fail. What are the odds of this one failing? It’s a low risk statistically, but any buyer of these cars should be aware of the risk. Personally I would buy an early 2005 model and replace the bearing.
