The highly successful Porsche Boxster was one of the highest selling models from the Stuttgart’s carmaker. In turn, the carmaker decided to offer the Boxster as a two-door fastback coupé as well, targeting an additional pool of potential customers with this vehicle. After two years of development, the vehicle was released back in 2005 as the Frankfurt Auto Show as the Porsche Cayman. It went on sale in July 2006, pushing sales numbers from the get go.
For the first-generation Porsche Cayman, the choice of either a 3.4 liter or 2.7 liter flat-six boxer engines were offered. The more powerful version delivers 295 horsepower and 251 lb⋅ft (340 Nm) of torque. One of the appeals of the first-generation Cayman S was the offering of either a 6-speed manual Getrag or an electronically controlled 5-speed automatic transaxle Tiptronic transmission options. As other options go, the Cayman S could be ordered with active shock absorbers (ThyssenKrupp Bilstein GmbH’s DampTronic, rebadged as PASM by Porsche), ceramic disc brakes (PCCB), xenon headlights (Hella’s Bi-Xenon) and an electronically controlled sport mode (Sport Chrono Package).
Overall, the vehicle was not only a gorgeous piece of design, but also, a rather potent high-performance machine with impressive handling and driving dynamics. As a result, the carmaker sold over 7000 units of this vehicle in the first sales year alone, marking one of the more successful models for the company.
Right now, the Porsche Cayman of the first-generation can be purchased in the mid-twenties or low-thirties, thousands of dollar wise. As a result, more and more of these fine vehicles are becoming impressive aftermarket builds.
This particular Porsche Cayman features a gorgeous Cobalt Blue exterior finish, one of the more impressive shades of blue we’ve seen thus far on vehicles of its kind. Furthermore, its equipped with a set of lightweight Forgestar CF10 wheels, giving it an even more impressive overall appeal. The wheels for this vehicle are machined in sizes of 19×8.5 in the front and 19×10 in the rear. The gorgeous custom Sun Gold finish puts the exclamation point on this build.
