New update

I was able to procure full records from owner #2 and partial records from owner #1.

A lot of questions about the engine failure, turns out it was a loose rod bolt on the #6 cylinder, this caused the piston to crack, which in turn damaged the block. It was not an IMS failure!

Hang in there, Rob. Sports car season is dawning. People are getting their tax returns back. Minds are turning to fun cars. Someone will bite. Your price is right and you have great options and colors.

Have you tried AutoTrader? I've sold two cars, including my Cayman S, via AT. Both were sold locally, but I got results. I've also had good luck with Cragslist, as long as you can weed thru the spammers.

Rob,
You didn't answer my question about where you're advertising it. I got 2200+ hits on my ad here, 140 on P-9, and 500 on quatrroworld but no one reached for their wallet. I've had extremely good luck with AutoTrader and CL and have sold 4 sports cars (2 Caymans and 2 Audi TTs) using them over the last 3 yrs. Throw it out there for $28.5 and see what happens. Your price is fine, you just need to get it in front of an audience ready to buy. CL is free, so you've got nothing to lose.

Husker,

You are right! AT and CL are next on my hit list. I really wanted to try to sell it into the Porsche enthusiast community first. They (hopefully) appreciate the mods I have done to it. A casual looker on AT or CL might not. However I have a couple of intersted buyers and hopefully a deal will be struck with one of them after I get a PPI done.

Thanks!

I know! I TOTALLY want it but other irons are in the fire right now. No-go says the cash flow.

New update

Had a PPI done and the garage - Fifth Gear Automotive, Lewisville. TX said the car needed the following - so I did them!
1. New clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing
2. New Water pump
3. New F/R rotors
4. New front pads, had set of rears with 50%+ remaining.

Cayman S is ready to go to a new home!
