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 first met Mark & Carl back on 21st Jan this year ('19) when I went to view a Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Sport, a car I had wanted from back when I was a spotty faced 17 year old. This was a real bucket list moment, buying the car of your dreams that you now have the means to make reality.
On meeting the guys from Absolute Classic Cars I had a really good feeling. When I got there the car was on the ramp ready to be poked and probed. Mark told me a little bit about the car, lifted it on the ramp and let me get on with it, just the way I like to look at cars. Any questions I had he was there with the answer but what I really liked was how he and Carl interacted. The honesty was a real change for me from when normally looking at a car. There were a couple of things I picked out and instead of the usual "that's nothing to worry about", I got "we'll get that done before the car goes out", no excuses just simple honest answers and a promise to fix it.
Anyway long story short, I bought the car and had a list of things I wanted done on the car which were all agreed to be done, in the negotiated price, prior to delivery. Every single thing on that list was done to a superb standard, to be honest it exceeded my expectations and more. Today when the car arrived I could not stop grinning from ear to ear. It was a really emotional moment, a dream fulfilled!
In the last 40 years I have never bought the first car I looked at, however this time I made an exception as I was so impressed with both the car and the people. We are so used to getting rubbish service and substandard misdescribed cars from the motor trade and I found that I was caught a little offguard here which took me a while to get to grips with .... but all in a very nice way.
What makes Absolute Classic Cars different is they care, are honest, knowledgeable and nothing is a problem, big or small. They want you to have the car you want to buy, not the car they necessarily have for sale. I don't think I've ever met two people in the motor trade less interested in pressurising you into buying, they'd rather not sell you the car if it's not 100% the car you want to buy.
From that first meeting to delivery today it has been a fantastic experience. This whole process has been an absolute pleasure, not the normal chore car buying turns into, I would and will be recommending Absolute Classic Cars to anyone that wants a classic car.
