Porsche Cayman 3.4S - SOLD
2007 Porsche Cayman 3.4S
- Finished in classic Porsche Guards Red
- 6 Speed Manual
- Optional 18" Alloys in black
- 'PORSCHE' side graphics
Named after the reptile rather than the exotic holiday location, the Porsche Cayman was first unveiled to the public at the 2005 Frankfurt Motorshow and shared the same mid-engined platform and a number of front end body parts and mechanical components as the 987 Boxster. Unlike the Boxster, the rear body section of the 987c (Porsche's internal project number) is made entirely of stainless steel and being a coupe, features a hatchback to allow access for a well sized luggage compartment and sound-proofed cover, allowing access to the engine.
Supplied new via the Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex and registered in January 2007, this beautifully presented Cayman 3.4S (987c) is finished in the quintessentially Porsche Guards Red with grey leather interior and features the following specification:
- 3.4S (295bhp VarioCam) Engine with 6 speed gearbox.
- 18” Alloys finished in gloss black (these have been fully stripped, dipped and powder-coated) and fitted with Michelin Pilot sport tires.
- Grey leather interior with metallic grey shell-back seats.
- Electric & heated door mirrors.
- Electric heated seats.
- Front electric windows.
- Rear park assist.
- Wheel caps with Porsche crest.
- Porsche CDR 24 CD / Radio.
- Air Conditioning with climate control
- Trip computer.
- Multiple airbags.
- Remote central locking.
- Headlamp cleaning system.
- Active rear spoiler.
- Genuine Porsche over-mats.
Being a 3.4S model, this Cayman offers stunning sportscar performance (sub 6 seconds 0-60mph and almost 170mph top speed), figures that set to challenge the all conquering 911 and with a similar flat 6 engine, the Cayman offers a drive that's similar to boot. In-fact, Porsche found that when testing the new car, the 3.4S was only marginally slower around the mighty Nürburgring and whilst we're not suggesting that we've driven our Guards Red example like this, there's no doubting the Cayman's motoring performance.
With 68,000 miles (MOT until May 2018) she has a great service history with Porsche main dealer stamps at 17k, 30k and then Porsche Independent at 44k, 49k, 55k and 68k (Sept '17 - Zentrum Porsche, Nottingham including a Major Service, plugs and comprehensive check and importantly clean bill of health for known bore-score issues), she has also had brake fluid changes and condition inspections carried out at the same time. With a great level of specification this Cayman 3.4S represents fantastic value and comes with previous MOTs, documented history and receipts from Porsche, clear HPI file and full Porsche dealer pack.

I had been on the point of completing the purchase of a superb 1963 Peugeot 404 Pininfarina Cabriolet in excellent condition, from a reputable dealer in Holland, when I came across the website of Absolute Classic Cars in Lincoln and was immediately impressed with the very high quality of stock on offer.
In view of my imminent purchase of the Peugeot Cabrio, one car on their website particularly caught my attention - a beautifully restored 1961 Fiat-OSCA 1500S Pininfarina Cabriolet. It was even prettier than the Peugeot, and in even better condition having been the subject of a painstaking ground-up ‘nut & bolt’ restoration. And this was a model that had been built by Pininfarina and had a Maserati-designed engine!
This little Italian gem seemed a more seductive proposition in so many ways. However, I now had to make a very quick decision as the dealer in Holland had already arranged transport to the UK and was awaiting funds! If I was going to pull out and buy a different car then I had to know, very quickly, if the Fiat-OSCA was as good a car as it was claimed to be, and that there would be no complications in doing business with another dealer who I had not had any contact with before.
Well I need not have worried! From the moment I made email contact about the Fiat-OSCA it was very clear to me that I would be in excellent hands and need have no doubt about the quality of the car, the accuracy of their description of it, or the level to which it would be prepared for handover. A deal was struck and I was very impressed by Mark & Carls attention to detail - I think it’s fair to say that they went the extra mile in every possible way to make sure the car would meet my expectations and my needs. I only ever had the feeling that I was dealing with people who were at least as enthusiastic about this very rare car, and indeed about classic cars in general, as I am, and I found their approach to selling classics to be refreshing, open, honest and highly professional. Mark even personally delivered the car to me all the way down from Lincoln to Devon and made sure that I was happy with all aspects of both the car and the buying experience. Needless to say, I now recommend Absolute Classic Cars to others at every opportunity!"
