Why We Like It

Nipping at the heels of the 911 is easy with a Cayman GTS, and some will contend the Cayman is even more fun. At about 5 years-old, this Cayman GTS is presented in seemingly exquisite shape with less than 7k miles from new, and the car is fitted with a number of desirable features, such as the Alcantara and leather upholstery with red contrast stitching, 6-speed manual transmission, sport wheels, red brake calipers, and more. The seller says the exhaust note is one of the sweetest in the world, and we tend to agree – anyone who’s heard a Cayman GTS will know what we’re talking about.

We love the GTS for the delicate and subtle body styling enhancements and its powerful 3.4L flat 6-cylinder engine capable of zipping the Cayman from 0-60 mph in under 5-seconds. Interestingly, 2016 would be the last year of the flat-6 until 2020, when the optional 4.0L flat-6 arrived, the interim using a 4-cylinder turbo, which offers truly stellar performance. Regardless, this is one of the last of the sixes, which is kind of cool. It appears to be in mint condition by the pictures and the post, the paint and body looking exquisite, the interior similarly presented, showing largely as if it had never been used. Given the handling characteristics of the Cayman GTS, the low miles, the no moonroof, the extra set of wheels, and the manual transmission, we wonder if this was a weekend track car. Not likely, given the condition, but looking at how it’s equipped and being sold, it could be…

Valuation Verdict

The Cayman GTS is kind of a rare bird – especially given the 6-speed manual transmission. This one shows extremely low miles and presents in beautiful, almost new condition. The colors are normally desirable to most German car enthusiasts and being of the GTS persuasion, this one may well receive the asking figure, and if you’re looking the best, this is probably the bird for your cage. Interestingly, it seems the GTS Cayman has really hit the nail on the head, because while pricey, this one is still fair market, comparably speaking, and we see higher mile PDK transmission examples selling at auction in the $55k-$60k range.
