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 write these words with a large childish smile still beaming across my face after driving through the Kent countryside, roof down, summers warmth on my face as ‘il Polita’ my beautiful '82 Fiat Spider 2000. This is now June but the story starts in 2018 February at the London Classic Car Show
Glass of fizz in hand with Paul; very good friend of mine. Gazing at auto-erotica, he spots the 82’ Fiat spider 2000 on the stand of ‘Absolute Classic Cars’, with the team greeting us too look closer. A truly stunning example and honestly priced. The conversation flitters between us, the cars of the show, and the possible purhcase of the Spider!
Days later, I call to make a further enquiry to purchase the Fiat Spider. Excitement in my voice is then inadvertently quelled as I find out that the early bird has truly got the worm. Paul has got in before me and struck the deal! All's fair in love afterall. . .
After carrying out a detailed service and additional works the call comes to collect the Spider and on a damp cold March morning we travel up to Lincoln, where we're kindly picked up at the station. Moments later, after a warming coffee, everybody’s happy! The sale's completed and Paul’s in the 'new owners' hot seat of the Spider raring to go. Myself? Navigators seat, perhaps with the slightest of sighs. 150 miles later, we’re home but the drive South has encouraged me to make the call for Absolute Classic Cars to commence the search for another model. This time, most definitely with my name on it!
Over the next month myself and the ACC team discuss cars in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands, with the Mark and Carl casting their ever professional ‘laser pin point’ eye over several models. Each time highlighting why that may not be the example for me. Rest assured these guys know their onions and you’re in very safe hands; candid and sincere.
Just when I was beginning to feel the summer would pass without a ‘Spider’ for my own Italian passions, I get a phone call from my friend Paul. Whether it was a hint of guilt or just that he had run out of space for his car collection? .....“Would you like to buy the Spider from me”....I think they were his words, as I interrupted with a ‘yes definitely’ before the sentence was cast from his lips!
I inform ACC to call off the search, the Spider has fund its true home! – ‘Perhaps it was just meant to be‘ he wryly says.
From that champagne fuelled car show, meeting Carl and Mark, the roundabout route of having my perfect car in the garage & now chasing summer horizons. I can honestly say it’s been a pleasure both meeting and finally getting ‘the car’ through the Absolute Classic Cars.
As they say in Italy – ‘Le Dolce Vita’ "
