Cayman S (2006)…that was

Click to see full size

This car was sold to make room for my new Cayman GTS. It now finds a home in Houston, TX.

I purchased the 2006 Porsche Cayman S, in Basalt Black over black leather in August 2010.  The car had two previous owners, but over the four years of ownership they had together only driven 16,000 miles.  This was a little used weekend fancy, I think.  Not for me.  I drove it to work every day, and whenever I could on local PCS drive outs. Four years later I had added 35,000 miles. And all those miles were great fun. I miss the car.
