2008 Cayman S Sport 6-Speed

An under-the-radar 987 brings the money despite some miles

A little-known limited edition 987 that has been under the radar for quite some time is the 987 Cayman S Sport. This special high-performance model was the most powerful Cayman of the time with 303 horsepower thanks to a Sport Exhaust with unique Twin Chamber Dual Output Tailpipes and upgraded DME software maps. But it wasn’t just all engine, as the car featured plenty of other sporty options such as Porsche’s Sport Chrono Package and PASM.

On the outside, the Cayman Sport took notes from the GT3 as it featured Gloss Black mirrors, wheels, and Cayman S script along the sides along with gloss black side intake vents, which looked great against optional GT3 Green or Orange paint. On the inside, it features an Alcantara steering wheel, gear selector, and hand brake, and parts of the interior are also painted in Gloss Black. Limited to only 700 units, the Cayman Sport is one we don’t often see, but should be aware of if one just so happens to be in the market for a 987.

The 2008 Cayman S Sport 6-speed pictured above is finished in Carrara White over a Black leather interior and shows 88,983 miles on the odometer. Along with the standard Sport options, this example features Guards Red seat belts, BOSE, and Porsche Communication Management. It has also been upgraded with an aftermarket IPD intake plenum, GT3 throttle body, and a drop-in air filter.

Despite the higher mileage, the car appears to be in good condition with just the minor rock chips and scuffs you’d expect. On the inside, the seat bolsters show a little bit of wear and there is some peeling of the finish of the PCM. Mechanically, the car has been routinely serviced with receipts provided in the gallery along with a DME report. Overall, a nice example of Porsche’s special Cayman.

Over the last twelve months, we’ve only seen two examples come to auction. The first, a 6-speed example finished in Black with 31,000 miles that sold for $35,000, and the second, a 58,000-mile example that failed to sell at a high bid of $26,000. Our Spotlight car sold at a final bid of $28,500. A strong sale compared to non-Sport Cayman S’ which have been trading closer to $25k, but worth every penny for the rarity and excellent history.


There are many Porsche Centers here in the US, and then there are PORSCHE Centers. Those who have a deep-rooted passion for the history of the marque that shows through everything they do, especially their choice of inventory. And Porsche Salt Lake City is one such PORSCHE Center. Serving the Salt Lake Valley since 1958 as one of the first Porsche dealers in the United States, a quick browse of their inventory lets one know just how dedicated to the brand this group of Porsche enthusiasts is.

Take for example this 1993 964 Carrera RS 3.8. Produced as the base to homologate Porsche’s legendary 3.8 RSR race car, the Carrera RS 3.8 was the ultimate evolution of the standard RS as it shed around 600 lbs of weight while increasing horsepower to 300 for a most visceral driving experience. And with only 55 units produced, you’ll be hard-pressed to find another for sale on the showroom floor of another Porsche Center.
