But what does this really mean? You can't tell much without knowing all the data. Some possibilities to think about.
1. Cayman sales are generally poor compared to other models, resulting in fewer available CPO cars in general. BRZs sell many more cars than Caymans.
2. Not all Caymans traded in result in a CPO car. Some might cost to much to CPO and the cars are sold at auction or not CPOd but remain for sale on the lot
3. Nobody is trading in their flat 6 Caymans in anticipation of turbo 4s

5. Prime years, IMO, for CPO Caymans right now would be 2009 - 2012, 3 - 6 year old cars? 5,127 cars sold in the US those four years. And they are wondering where the CPOd Caymans are? They sell more Subaru BRZs in one year than Porsche sold Caymans in 4 years. Why wouldn't they be hard to come by?
