Congrats, and despite not knowing you personally, could see something from a mile away. The appeal of a Cayman is hard to pass on.
Getting the base 987.2 has many appeals, including a 9A1 without direct injection. All the benefits of the 9A1 without the carbon buildup issue.
Very nice! I had a one owner 80k mile base 987.2 lined up for $17k before buying the 993, was ready to fly out and grab it then found the 993 and backed out of the deal. Now that I realize how much of a steal that would have been, I keep kicking myself for not buying both .
This is the spec of cayman that interested me most! 987.2 base gets the 6MT compared to the 987.1 5MT.

I had a 2008 base cayman, then a 2014 cayman s and now a 2014 base boxster.
My question is do you get the nice engines and belts sound out of the 2009 that you would from the 2008 and earlier caymans?
Before I got the boxster, i had 2009 and up in my sights. Just couldn't find one and when I did it was in the $30s.
I also think the base cars are more fun because you can keep your foot in the gas more.
no, i don't (unless it's lack of a CEL or something like that); didn't see this answered yet (or i'm just blind)...
funny, you've seen my Z4C 3.0si and I was just browsing for Caymans this morning; they seem to hold their value better & are more expensive than comparable Boxsters...
well, nice pick-up OP, congrats hope to see it/you at the next TCL meet-n-drive!
I removed the foam carpet above the engine cover a couple days ago and now the engine and induction noises really come through! It's a lot more engaging so I may do the clear engine cover mod later on.
I haven't pushed it too hard yet but it's arguably more raw than a 981 and going WOT is possible for a longer period. I love how the max torque is flat from 4500-6000 RPMs.
What made you start looking at Caymans? I remember your Z4... didn't your brakes overheat on Latigo? I need to sit inside it to see how the seats feel. The ones in the Z3 were really stiff with no support.
I wanted to ask him what's a "Porsche tire," then let him know the Ventus V12s that are on the car aren't N-rated. But with 8/32nd in the front and 5/32nd in the rear, I got some time left.
my brakes got worked hard & very hot but never overheated, per se... my seats are fine, no complaints in 7 years & 70k+miles as my daily driver; dunno about the Z3 seats specifically, but those interiors just seem much, much older (and hence, more "classic") than the Z4 imo.
now, time for you to post some new pics to the 'gram
