Porsche Cayman S 987 Gen 2 Manual with LSD in Basalt Black

Porsche Cayman S 987 Gen 2 Manual with LSD in Basalt Black SOLD

— Sold to Lloyd —

987 Gen 2 Cayman S 6-Speed Manual finished in Basalt Black Metallic with optional Extended Black Leather interior including Dashboard and Doors. Choice options include Hardback Leather Sports Seats, Sport Chrono Package Plus with SPORT mode, Porsche Active Suspension Management PASM, Limited Slip Differential, PORSCHE decorative side lettering in Satin Black, Rear Parking Sensors, daylight running LEDs and 18-inch Cayman S lightweight alloy wheels.

A very rare factory option that is fitted to this Cayman S is the mechanically locking rear differential, it further enhances the traction of the driven rear wheels on uneven roads and when accelerating out of tight bends, and the damping of load-change reactions during fast cornering is reduced. Road holding at the limits of performance is even more impressive. The car holds its course better and so PSM intervenes less often. In other words, sheer driving pleasure.

The Cayman S comes fitted with the mid mounted 3.4 litre DFI flat six engine that produces 321bhp. With this being a 987.2 Cayman S, it is cleaner and more efficient, translating to cheaper annual road tax, just £340 instead of £585, a significant saving to annual running costs. The 987 generation 2 cars do not suffer all of the problems of later 718 cars, such as turbo/oil supply failures, or earlier 987 generation 1 cars, including IMS bearing failures, RMS leaks and Borescoring, all of these issues were eradicated by Porsche when they designed the all-new direct fuel injection (DFI) naturally aspirated 987.2 Boxster and Cayman engines.

“The Cayman has come a long way, establishing itself firmly as a sports car in its own right and no longer seen as the more economical version of the 911. The Cayman S looks, drives and feels just perfect. All other things being equal it is probably all the sports car you’ll ever need. The Cayman S is a pure-bred sports car with mid-mounted engine, delivering uniform weight distribution between the front and rear axles and particularly well-balanced handling characteristics for high cornering speeds with excellent control.”
MotorStars Magazine, 2016

Background
The facelift version of the Porsche Cayman was introduced in February 2009. The Cayman S gained direct injection and a 25bhp increase to 320bhp, compared to the first generation version. The new engine does away with the Intermediate Shaft, which proved to be a weak link in pre-2009 engines, and has new cylinder coatings which are not prone to prematurely wearing or bore scoring.The front bumper was redesigned along with new front and rear lights, with the addition of daylight running lights in the front bumper.

Exterior
Our hand selected Cayman S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Basalt Black. The striking 18-inch Cayman lightweight alloy wheels finished in Arctic Silver metallic are the perfect contrast to the Basalt Black paintwork. The paintwork is in good condition, but there are some touched-in stone chips on the front end, which is to be expected with the mileage with the original paint still present on the bonnet and front wings. All the trim has a good finish, as do the front and rear lights. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should.

Interior
The Cayman S comes with the hard back sports seats that have 2-way electric backs and height adjustment. All of the extended interior leathers are in excellent condition and provide a perfect complement to the Basalt Black bodywork. There are no marks or signs of wear to any of the trim parts, panels or switchgear, with the leather retaining a wholly fresh appearance throughout.

Engine and Transmission
Our Cayman S is equipped with the 3.4 litre DFI flat six engine. The Cayman S engine produces 320bhp and 273ft-lb of torque. The axle load distribution of approximately 45:55 ensures high directional stability and superb road behaviour. The engine starts cleanly when cold or hot, there is no smoke whatsoever either at startup or when driving. There are no unusual sounds or rattles when the engine is running. The Cayman S is also fitted with Sport Chrono Package Plus, which adds a SPORT button that sharpens the throttle response whilst also adding a dashboard mounted stopwatch to add to the sporting image of the sportscar. With its compact design and low weight, the 6-speed manual gearbox is a simple, direct way to tap into the power of the Cayman S.

A very rare factory option that is fitted to this 987 Gen 2 Cayman S is the mechanically locking rear differential, it further enhances the traction of the driven rear wheels on uneven roads and when accelerating out of tight bends, and the damping of load-change reactions during fast cornering is reduced. Road holding at the limits of performance is even more impressive. The car holds its course better and so PSM intervenes less often. In other words, sheer driving pleasure.

This 987.2 Cayman S also has PASM switchable sports suspension system, which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road. PASM equipped cars also sit 10mm lower than non PASM cars.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our Cayman comes fitted with the 18-inch Cayman S II lightweight alloy wheels which are finished in Arctic Silver, they are free of kerb damage and corrosion. The brakes are phenomenal, cross drilled and vented discs front and rear with plenty of life left in them. We have just fitted new Porsche N1 rated Bridgestone Potenza RE050A high performance tyres all round.

History File
Our Porsche Cayman S has a full comprehensive Official Porsche Centre OPC and Porsche Specialist service history with stamped book with invoices in the history file we have compiled. The Cayman S was last serviced at PorschaCare Porsche Specialist on 21 June 2022 at 60,975 miles with new drive belt and brake fluid change.
