My priorities have changed in the last couple months. I need a single daily driver that I can take both of my kids to/from events, and have my eye on a sedan. Unfortunately, that sedan will not replace the mid-engine driving dynamics of this incredible machine. The upgrades performed on this 987.2 Cayman have turned this car into a legitimate driver's car. I have driven 911s, and the turn-in, balance, and corner rotation doesn't compare to this. The 987.2 base Cayman is a rare find and a hidden gem; they are dead reliable and quite an upgrade from the design of the M96/M97 engines in the 987.1 previous gen Cayman. This car has a 3M 1080 vinyl wrap on it (Lemon Sting) but is black underneath (see picture). The previous owner bought the car CPO from Porsche and I purchased the car from him late last year with the goal of doing some driving events, but realize now that this is not the time for me to have a 2nd car. I have the maintenance records and owner's manuals.

Yes, I've succumbed to the realities of other financial responsibilities, and frankly, I just don't drive it enough for what it's intended for. It's a great car, I just need to wait until I can manage having multiple vehicles. I do enjoy heel-toeing on the way to get those groceries in the frunk!
