I picked up this 2009 Porsche Cayman last November 2013 with 15,000 miles and I’m the second owner. This car was originally leased and driven only 3,415 miles per year. Current mileage is 23,500. Recent service with Mobil 1, OEM Oil Filter/Housing, OEM Air Filter and a magnetic drain plug. Brand new factory OEM clutch kit and flywheel at a cost of $3,000 installed a few hundred miles ago.
I am very sad to sell this car, but I’m buying my first home and since we live in California, my next car will likely be a Toyota Corolla :) . I’ve owned many BMWs over the years, this is my first P-car and it was quite the experience owning this car for the short time that I got to enjoy it. There really is nothing else like it.
This car is immaculate, there has never been a front license plate, so there are no pesky holes. The front plate bracket is still in the plastic bag from the factory. I’ve replaced the orange markers with the OEM clear ones (original orange markers will be included), that’s the only modification. The car includes 1 key.
There are a bunch of high resolution photos here, including the Carfax from Nov 2013 and the original ad for the car from Nov 2013 when I purchased it: https://www.flickr.com/photos/arimattson/sets/72157644356233420/

If you are in the market for a Cayman, I did a lot of research and would suggest you think about paying a little more for a 2009+ model. Here are a few of the reasons to maybe opt for a 2009 Cayman Base over a 2008 Cayman S:
—New 2.9L flat six that doesn’t have an IMS (Google IMS failure)
—New new 2.9L engine puts out almost as much power as the 2006-2008 Cayman S.
—Upgraded brakes that are the same diameter front and rear as the Cayman S.
—Cosmetic upgrades like LED rear tail lights, LED front running lights, and new shapes for the bumpers and lights.
Price is 32,900.
