First launched in the 2006 model year, the Cayman is a coupé derived from Porsche's second and third generation Boxster roadster, styled in its first iteration by Pinky Lai. All Caymans were manufactured in Finland by Valmet Automotive. The car is not named after the Cayman Islands. Both the car and the islands are named after the caiman, a member of the alligator family. When the Cayman arrived at dealerships for sale, the automaker adopted four caimans at Stuttgart's Wilhelma Zoo.
This example of the Porsche Cayman is presented in Silver with blue leather trim, importantly this has the manual gearbox as it is befitting of a true driver’s car. Optioned from new was a Porsche Navigation combined with aftermarket Bluetooth and Cayman S Wheels. The service history is comprehensive early servicing with Porsche in 2008 and 2010 and more recently with specialists. In March 2020 at 58,000 miles a bill of £1,825 can be found for replacement of the air/oil separator, water pump & hoses, temperature sensor, auxiliary belt and tensioner. All four wheels were refurbished and minor service, brake fluid change and new battery carried out in January 2022. The car is offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a valid MoT test certificate until March 2022. It is powered by a 2.7 litre flat-six engine and mated to that manual gearbox we are told is a joy to drive.
