Default Looking for a 987.2 Cayman S

Been searching the last few months and never find much on classifieds here or Autotrader etc.

Anyone have a 987.2 Cayman S 6-speed for sale?

Looking to spend less than $40k and prefer most colors outside silver. This will be a daily driver so power seat package for lumbar support and heated seats are must haves.

Thanks in advance,

Brett

Checked the Porsche locator and there were none with manuals! Several base models and a few nice Cayman Rs. 2010 and 2011 were low production years, which makes it ever harder to find. GL

Thanks...yeah I check Porsche locator and a few other websites daily, but there only seem to be 1-2 a month. I'm trying not to be picky, but I'm also trying to make sure I don't have regrets so I can hang onto it for a while.

These with a manual are becoming harder and harder to find. I have a 2011 base Cayman with the GT3 carbon seats and a manual. In 18 months since buying it, I've yet to find another 987.2 with these seats. I've also looked for 987.2's S models with a manual and no PDK. They're RARE.

Apparently only 750 manuals were produced each year from 2009-2012 for the base AND S model.

Might want to check PCA Classifieds if you haven't already.

Add Bring A Trailer to your search. This one just sold a few days ago.

Place a PCA classified. If your not a member its worth at least a one year membership.

I saw that one actually, but a little higher mileage than I was looking for, but I need to keep my eye on the site every few days.

I actually didn't think about that...considering I am going to be buying one I may as well join and post an ad.

I have a 2010 base manual and getting struck by lightning is easier than finding one now.

They're still out there. Did a search through AutoTempest and came across a few, including this black 2011 S for $38k:

Japan is usually home to LHD Porsche (despite being native RHD), but there appears to be none available now.
One nice RHD though:



Only 16,000km, climate control, no accidents, and confidentially from the same shop I bought my PDK 987.2S...
