    06 CS Price

    A dealer has a CPO Cayman S in good shape with under 7,000 miles. They want $39.9K. Checking KBB, it should be around $34ish but with CPO right at $40 (which seems like a big difference to me). I'm wondering what you guys think would be a good deal knowing that there are 2 years left of warranty if I can get them to CPO (they say it is "eligible." I've been through this before that I have to negotiate it in). Its already a 4 year old car, first year run car but it looks so nice, it has me considering it.

    Thoughts?

    I checked KBB. It shows $38 for Private party Excellent condition.

    With only 7K, I'm not sure how useful the CPO would be.

    This is interesting. The KBB price for this car is now $39,355 for Private party Excellent condition. That's a $1,400 increase in 10 days. Isn't a used car supposed to be going down in price?

    I would try to knock it down to $36K or lower and skip CPO. There are better deals on extended warranty from 3rd party (search in forums). Depends on how much you will drive the car though.

    Everyone has their own opinion. I starkly disagree on the valude of a 3rd party verses Porsche CPO.

    A CPO Porsche warranty means you bring it in for a problem, and presuming it's a non wear covered item, Porsche takes care of it. No paperwork, arguing, or negotiation, or reimbursement hassles.

    Also, they will certify that it has no major bodywork, and prepare a report that you can get a copy of.... Plus they will do the fluids, and make sure you have tires with a certain percentage of tread, etc.

    With the 19's PASM is desirable but not absolutely necessary.

    I can't comment on price, as if it is the color you want, and optioned like you want, then keep searching but put in an offer you are comfortable with.

    Good luck.

    This is a nice car. The price is a little high. I paid 38,600 for mine, but didn't get CPO with it. Mine had 16K on it, but also has navigation otherwise, the options are pretty similar.

    I would try and establish the manufacturing date. The later '06s have some mechanical things sorted that the very first ones didn't.

    Also, if you have dreams of running this car on a race track in driving events, you should read the complaints area of this site that concerns oiling and power steering problems at high G and high temps. There are some good fixes around for these things. If you're staying with street tires and driving on the street, these problems won't apply. The car is even good for long curvy exit ramps at warp speed but probably want to keep it at least one gear from red-line while doing that. High revs plus high G's seem to cause the problems.

    These issues are sorted on '09 and newer Caymans, but they cost about twice as much as a good, used '06. I like the options on this car and I'd jump on it, personally.

    I don't regret buying mine. I've done a ton of mods, but my car is track-worthy now and a lot of fun. If yours is a daily driver or weekend fun car, you'll love it. Just keep off the track/autocross circuits until you have some work done.

    ...or use your warranty to get a new engine when yours goes south. But the replacement will have the same issues. You need to attend to the fixes if you buy this. Non dealer mechanics are your best bet for help on this. This site is really helpful.

    Re: 06 CS Price

    Sounds like a nice car - I've had zero oil or engine problem with mine.

    If the miles are that low it must of been stored a lot.

    However, I do like pasm - with the 19's it is my preferred ride. Also, I do use 18's in the winter.

    Re: 06 CS Price

    A friend of mine just bought a 06 Cayman S with a few nice options with 21K miles for 32K no CPO cars in very nice shape. I think 39K is little high. 08 are going for that.

    Should have used a higher mileage as to track as most '06 are not in the 7k mile range. But this is what we started with last year and I'll have it keep it as a constant for price tracking purpose.

    Re: 06 CS Price

    dataxpress,

    Most definitely, you will get the best prices during the winter months. From my observation, it seems that between Dec and March will probably get you the best deal. When you start seeing lots of snow storm on the weather channel, you get good deals.

    Year over year pricing look very steady. There wasn't any depreciation between last year and this year. Maybe when the next gen come out, we'll see depreciation.
