2016 Porsche Cayman S

I’m not exactly going out on any limbs and predicting something that others aren’t seeing, but the 981 Porsche Cayman is aging very well. It’s a great size, the tech is more than adequate, but the real star of the show is the MA1 flat-6. It is a wonderfully balanced engine that sounds great, kicks out 325 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, and won’t kill you in service costs. However, I think one of the biggest reasons the 981 is holding strong, is that it isn’t a 718. Hear me out here.

Unless you spring for the GTS 4.0 or GT4, the 718 chassis gets a lot of kickback because of the MA2 turbocharged flat-4. Don’t get me wrong, I want to love the 718. I think it looks great, the interior is extremely nice for the price point, but I just can’t love, or even like, the MA2 engine. Every time I hear one start up, I am having flashbacks to 2005 Subaru WRXs. I am not alone here. Because of this, I’d much rather buy the older car for the engine alone. Today’s car, a 2016 Cayman S, looks to be one of the finer examples I’ve come across of the 981 chassis in the past few years. Why? Well, it has 955 miles on it. That’s it. 955.

If you missed the boat back in 2016 for a new Cayman S, well the boat is back at the dock and it is ready to sail again. I think this is one of the better opportunities at the “new-old” cars you see pop up from time to time with a few hundred miles on it especially since this one isn’t priced crazy. Why?

Sticker price on this car in 2016 was $91,230. Today, it has an asking price of $72,900. In the world of crazy Porsche prices, this seems like the deal of the year. A nearly $20,000 discount for less than 1,000 miles? What year is it? Did we travel back in time where modern Porsches sell for way less than sticker? I honestly can’t believe this one has stuck around as long as it has.

    I’ve been keenly watching these as well and surprised they haven’t commanded a more significant premium for the same reasons you mentioned. I think the “discount” on this one (with next to no miles) can be attributed to no sport chrono package and no sport steering wheel. Those two options on a PDK equipped car, especially an S, definitely seem to command higher prices. And if you’ve ever driven one with the PSE, well that’s a special slice of heaven as well.

    Nice spot, Andrew.

    A better choice would be a 2015/2016 Boxster GTS with 15-25,000 miles You get the missing Sports Chrono and most importantly you get sports exhaust.
