2016 Porsche Cayman Black Edition

The 2016 model year was the last for the 981 Porsche Cayman chassis, and you know what that means: Random special editions that no one has heard of or really even asked for. This is the Cayman “Black Edition” that was just a handful of options packaged together and some “Black Edition” door sills. There were no performance additions or even suspension upgrades. We probably saw this coming as there was a 2012 Cayman Black Edition which was, you guessed it, the final year of the 987 chassis. They really don’t do anything to resale value other than a “that’s interesting” passing comment since it literally is just a bunch of pre-selected options, but hey, those door sills are cool, right?

Navigation System, Spoiler, Leather Seats, Heated Seats, 20”Premium Wheels, Bose Sound System, Keyless Start, Multi Zone Climate Control, Bluetooth,Upgraded Headlights, etc.

I do give Porsche some credit here with the options they did select for the edition with the 20″ Carrera Classic wheels, bi-xenon headlights, ParkAssist, heated seats, the SportDesign steering wheel, and navigation with upgraded audio. Sticker price on this one was $72,000 when new, and now some 25,000 miles we are looking at an asking price of $59,500. That is … not a good deal at all considering you can grab a lot of Cayman S examples at that price. When you water down these “special editions”, don’t expect people to care or place more value on them just because you needed a reason to clear out the parts bin. This certainly won’t be the last time we see something like this.

  1. They used to call prices like this “crack pipe” prices, but now the buyers are on crack because they are buying at these prices. $60k for a base 2.7L PDK 981.1? Really??
