2021 Porsche Cayman-Guards Red on Black Leather, 6-speed manual, 20″ wheels, sport exhaust, Apple Car Play, 1-owner, 9300 miles
2021 Porsche Cayman- 1 owner with 9,300 miles
If you come to my personal garage you might be surprised to find that among my various air-cooled 911’s I also have a wide cross section of other Porsche’s. One thing that is notable is that for modern Porsche my predilection is towards the mid-engine cars. I just find the total package to be more akin to Porsche’s of yore; I appreciate the handling balance, the pragmatic two trunks for road trip storage and I find the overall package just suits me. I also have a soft spot for the entry level cars, in our incessant race for “more” something gets lost in the translation, driving joy…. One simply can’t exploit 500hp safely on the road, so piloting some of these newer GT cars can be exhilarating but frustrating at the same time. Give me a small displacement Porsche with ~300hp and a manual gearbox and I will find a way to have fun…. Wait that is THIS car…Come drive it, I think you will agree these are brilliant cars!
This particular car was ordered brand new at Roger Jobs Porsche by a local enthusiast. He wanted a “pure” spec, (which I applaud!) so he kept it fairly simple:
- Guards Red Exterior
- Black Leather interior
- 6-speed manual
- 20″ Carrera S Wheels
- Extended Range Fuel Tank
- Sport Seats
- Sport Tailpipes in Black
- Model Designation Delete
The good news is that for 2021 Porsche significantly upgraded the standard equipment list for the 718 (about time!) and made the following items standard equipment: Sport Exhaust, heated front seats, Apple Car Play/Android Auto, Dual zone automatic climate control, auto dimming mirrors, rain sensing wipers and bi-xenon headlights, so while it is lightly optioned it has the right options!
Upon picking up the car he had the front end covered in Paint protection film and applied 35% window film to keep the interior protected. He installed the OEM Cayman GT4 short shift kit and swapped the original amber side marker lights for clear.
Upon arrival at my shop we installed 4 new Continental Extreme Contact tires, had the car completely detailed/paint correction performed at Metropolitan Detail and I have it scheduled to receive its 10,000 mile service at Porsche of Bellevue (the owner has actually changed the oil 3 times during his ownership!).
If you want to add a Porsche to your garage and want a late model Porsche for ease of ownership, this car is worthy of consideration for sure!
