You can look up MSRP and invoice right here on Edmunds. Porsche had $2k in dealer money on left over 2010 Caymans, so invoice - $2k would be POSSIBLE. Anything less is losing money on the deal for the dealer. If / when Porsche increases the incentive the lower prices would be possible. I have seen some dealers with new 2009 or 2008 models still stuck on the lots. They don't ... Read More
Thanks to Car_man's post the other day that alerted me to Porsche's new, lower lease rates, I pulled the trigger on an '09 Cayman this weekend. The deal was as follows: MSRP- 57,270 Gross Cap Cost - 50,247 (12.25% discount from MSRP) Residual- 33,216 (58%) MF - .00146 Months - 36 Miles/yr- 10,000 pmt- $597 I paid taxes, acq & doc fee up front, but put no extra money towards Cap ...

Hi ychang77. Porsche has pulled the plug on its lease support for 2009 models. At the beginning of the year it paid out dealers five grand for any remaining '09 Caymans that they had left in stock and it was done with them. PFS is providing a special .00183 money factor on 2010 Caymans right now through. Car_man Host Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
Yes Porsche has both trunk money and 1.9% financing through January and given that sales are still down (except for the new Panamera) dealerships should be willing to deal heavily on a 2009 car since the 2010's have arrived. Porsche has cut back production significantly so 2010 cars may be hard to find and harder to get discounts on, but still the incentives are there.
Just took delivery 3 days ago on a 2009 Cayman, well optioned, 15K miles per year, 36 months, ZERO $ down except first payment. $725.00 month. Car is fantastic. Well worth the price and Porsche dealer was way more comptetive in pricing my lease than the BMW dealer on a 2009 135.
I haven't followed up with the development of 09' Cayman new feature problems, such as DFI carboning. Curiously, double clutch is a rather new technology that has only been made available by auto manufacturers in the last 2 years, including Porsche. It is certainly reasonable for these technologies to go through teething and maturity cycle. However, DFI has been around much longer and it begs the question why Porsche has such ... Read More
You should feel pleased that you have a 2008 Cayman. The 2009's with DFI have serious problems with carboning. I understand that the problem is so bad that severe damage occurs...not covered by Porsche of coarse.
There is a site on the web where you can find a Club of Cayman people who can tell you what Porsche has up their sleeve and prevent you from buying something you don't want to buy. :) Well at least they can make good recommendations. All you need to do is Google search for the site (not allowed to post link here). Now with respect to your 2008, it is ... Read More
After seeing the new 2009 Cayman S with PDK double clutch & 25 extra horses, my heart sank to bottom since I bought a 2008 model last year. I thought I did all the research needed before buying it and I was totally wrong. Who would know what new improvements Porsche have in their sleeve every year?
I'm going to post this on a couple forums here that fit the question. I've been shopping for a new car particurally a Porsche. I wrote a blog about, want to see it, here it is. http://mannyljr.typepad.com/lizardslair/ Anyway, while my first "love" was a Boxster, I then switched to Cayman for overall better experience, in my mind. Though the longer I read about the engine issues along with the high yearly ... Read More
One of the best cars on the road is now a little bit better. PDK, DSG, SMG, MICKEYMOUSE - call it whatever you want, it's still a slushbox. Gotta hand it to Porsche, getting an extra $3000 from poseurs who simply want membership in the club.
By now you should know all about the wonders of the dual-clutch automated manual gearbox, a version of which is now offered for the 2009 Porsche Cayman and 2009 Porsche Cayman S. This box of wonders (and also gears) has variously been credited with raising the dead, changing the world of transmissions forever and ever and making a heavenly crème brulée. 2009 Porsche Cayman S First Drive
The short answer is YES, Boxsters and Caymans from 2005 to 2008. Due to various issues like intermediate shaft failure or cracked pistons, oil starvation, oil ingestion etc. Will all of them fail? No. Will some of them? Yes. Porsche has changed the engine design for 2009 going forward to help fix some/all of these potential problems. My suggestion is buy a car with a warranty and buy an extended warranty ... Read More
yea.. this forum is not well attended... I never view -- but the system alerts of a message. The forum you want to visit is: caymanclub.net. It is very, very active and has a whole section on buying/leasing. $10K off MSRP is about right -- especially now. I bought my Cayman at Fremont, a 2007 model, and didn't get that kind of deal, but the dealers are likely having a difficult ... Read More
Looks like no one has posted to this forum for a while. I was hoping to find out some information on actual prices paid. Here in the Bay Area dealers are typically offering $10k off MSRP, in fact they are even advertising it. In looking at inventory levels, it looks like Caymans are moving, but it seems nobody wants a Cayman S. As we head toward year end, and with the ... Read More
I do agree that I would most likely survive quite well with the radio off. Seriously, I do understand that it is the "Porsche Driving Experience" that is what owning this car is all about. It is only my hope that, just maybe, someone at Porsche maybe scanning these comments and realize their are those of us, potential buyers and current owners, who do like our music too. That upgrading the ... Read More
I came very close to getting Cayman in November, but as usually, my wife jumped in and we ended up getting the "practical car", an Audi Q7 3.6 Premium to replace her Allroad. That being said, she assured me I could get my Cayman, a weekend toy, next year and she won't say a thing. Deal. And no, I did not get this in writting. Does anyone feel my pain? However, ...

This is the estimated average annual insurance premium being charged in your state. The premium has been determined based on annual premium data for defined coverages (liability, comprehensive and collision) from a major insurer.
While this information is specific to vehicle make, model, model year and body type, your personal information is not taken into consideration and could greatly alter the actual premium quoted by an insurer. Factors that will affect your rate include your age, marital status, credit history, driving record, and the garaging address of your vehicle.
