2007 Cayman S
Selling my Carmon Red / Sand Beige 2007 Cayman S. Carmen is a 6 spd manual with a low 35K mi. She has a clear title in hand and a clean Carfax. Her options include:

sport steering wheel

heated seats
Bose premium sound
Rain sensing wipers / self dimming mirrors
18" wheels (some rash)
Continental DW tires w/ 16K mi (great tires, lots of tread left)
Owners manual & 2 keys

Porsche CPO warranty thru 5/2013

Carmen is well cared for. Her recent maintenance includes:
09/11 new battery

04/12 oil change
04/12 new windshield
10/12 4 wheel alignment

So nice...please don't do this to me I already have a full garage with two Boxsters. I might have to build another garage :). Your price is very good for an 'S' you should sell it fast.

husker boxster 09-01-2012 06:58 PM

Omaha to Charlotte would be a nice, fun run for a new to you Cayman S. ;)

husker boxster 09-12-2012 01:02 PM

I will be taking my ad down tomorrow. I was in negotiation with a private seller on an 08 Signal Green Cayman S Sport, but he became a tool and didn't want to sell his car. Left the ad up incase he changed his mind but looks like he's going to keep his car. Thanks for looking.

WhipE350 09-17-2012 01:25 PM

So basically you were trading in one Cayman for a newer one? Your price was still a give away, they would be asking over 40k at the dealers here.

husker boxster 09-17-2012 02:51 PM

Yes, I was only going up 1 yr but the CS Sport had the options I now wish I had plus it had 25K fewer miles. My CS has been rock solid reliable, is a beautiful color, and still has CPO. It's not the end of the world that the deal fell through. The private party I was dealing with wanted me to hand over the full amount we negotiated a day before I picked it up. This after seeing the car in person 3 wks before. I don't know if it's a wadded up ball now. Then I'd have to hope he would pay off Porsche Financial Services to get the title AND then have him sign and deliver said title once he got it. Way too risky to me. I wanted to show up at his bank, bank wire transfer the payoff to PFS and wire the rest to his acct. Then I only had to hope he got me the title. He didn't want to - said you could somehow reverse the transfer after I had the car. He wasn't into selling the car but I wish he wouldn't have wasted my time. At least I'm not being interviewed by American Greed and they're asking me why I gave a fraudster $44.5K with nothing in return. I didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday.

I have a link that allows me to look at Craigslists across the country for various make and model cars. I've noticed Charlotte and Raleigh consistently have high prices. To the point where I never check them because I'm sure there won't be any good deals. Why are cars so expensive in NC?

WhipE350 09-18-2012 03:17 PM

Wow...yes you make the right decision, that whole story made my head spin. Smart man.

So Charlotte and high prices. Well I'm not sure, there aren't a lot and that might be part of it. The other thing might be that both Hendrick and Paramount (in Hickory) ask top dollar for used ones and maybe folks base their prices off of that...really don't know. I think I over paid for my 2000 'S' back in Nov 2010 but I got a bullet proof car so in the end it was worth it. I have noticed just recently with the new 991s and 981s on the market that Hendrick dropped their used prices a bunch.

Oh I meant to tell you that **************************************************** is selling 987 floor mats for $39 and two sets for $49. I got two sets of Sand Beige. I posted the second set for sale but really don't care if I sell them...for the $10 extra I paid for them I'm sure I'll find a use. But if you need new ones check out SunCoast.

I'm putting Carmen back on the market as the owner of the signal green Cayman S Sport has contacted me about buying his car. We've worked out the details and it appears the sale is going through this time (under my conditions). I'm excited to get the CSS but will miss Carmen. She's been a great car to own and will make someone very happy.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Congrats on your deal!

As a Carmon Red fan looking for a track car....

What's the revised price?

husker boxster 11-09-2012 06:49 PM

I updated post #1 with more info and new price - $34,250.

Shameless plug to bump the ad and get the views over 1200.

WhipE350 12-12-2012 09:05 PM

That is shameless! Looks like candy Porsche sprinkles in your driveway. Why is your grass so green, is that overseed?

walt2810 12-13-2012 12:25 PM

Nice collection in the driveway

Frodo 12-13-2012 12:40 PM

Hey Husker, admit it---you liked jelly beans as a kid, didn't you??

I live on the other side of the fence. ;)

It's probably global warming but we've only had 2 cold days this fall / early winter (1 the day I took this pic) so the grass hasn't gone dormant. Plus I have the neighborhood's best lawn. Do all the fertilizing and mowing myself.

Walt - thanks.

Frodo - yep.

You could have your own car show !

husker boxster 12-29-2012 11:09 AM

More pics. These show the color a bit better than the ones I took in Sep.


And one of Sydney with her snows on.

WhipE350 12-29-2012 01:30 PM

What is that nasty white stuff were your nice green grass used to be!? Your cars look fantastic.

mcomet 12-29-2012 10:15 PM

Very nice... I really love the look of the Cayman. All you need is red, blue and yellow and you will be on your way...heh. I am pretty sure my next car will be a coupe, but probably long while off... GLWS.
