Yowser, that's nice! I've no idea why anyone would get a 911. If you don't want the soft top of the Boxster, then the Cayman is the way to go. Mid-engine trumps rear engine any day of the week.

Nicely done!

My wife has been my co-pilot for years doing PCA Tours and Rallies, and she wanted to get in on the driving part. Figured a Cayman would be best for her. She wanted something that wouldn't attract attention, thus the plain vanilla white color.

It's an '08, Tip, bone stock, mint condition. Have both keys plus ALL SERVICE RECORDS from date of original purchase to the present.

I rarely get to drive it. She's already put 2K miles on it in the past 6 weeks!

Just sayin'..............

Here's some pics of my new ride, a 2008 Cayman base, Ruby Red over Sand Beige interior. Nicely optioned with Cayman S wheels, PCM 2.1 w/navigation, Bi-Xenon headlights, and sport steering wheel. New Continental Extreme tires, new brake rotors and pads, front and rear, within the last 3000 miles. Excellent condition, clean PPI, all service records since new.

Her name is Tuesday. Props to anyone who can guess where the name came from.

Really nice 2.7L, TO. I like the Color Combo and the wheels.
What happened to the Boxster?

Sweet ride! Congrats.

Was wondering if you got it bought.

The Boxster is going up for sale. My indie says my cam deviations are above 6 degrees, so it's going to need some expensive work that I'm not willing to invest in. I'm listing it cheap, as a roller. I hate to sell it; it's been a great ride, and I've maintained it religiously.

Want me to ship it to Germany for you?

Just wonderin'.........

Forgot to mention that it also came with a cool Das Schild liner with the Porsche crest. Plus LOJACK, XM Sirius radio, and Bluetooth loaded on the Com unit.

TeamOxford, you should remove those liners before you sell the car. They won't bring in a dime more in resale value, and someone here will buy them for sure. I wish my car had them on when the previous owners put numerous reverse dings in both trunk lids

Very nice! There's been an 07S Tip with 92K miles for sale by owner on local CL. Its Lapis Blue/beige and looks pretty nice. Seller originally listed it at $19.5K and last update a couple of nights ago has it down to $16.5K

Just not sure if I want a tip but I sure do like the looks of the car.
