Hello,

First post here on the forum, seems like a friendly place.

I've made the decision to put a boyhood dream into action, and am starting out on the road to finally getting myself that legendary flat six.

I'm UK based, and would like some advice on price ranges for a used Gen 2 Cayman (non-S) 2010 - 2012. Basically, I'd like some good, ball-park figures when looking through adverts/specialist pages, to help me pick out those overpriced ads. If anyone has price advice for different mileage ranges, sub-50k, 50-100k that would be really useful.

Many thanks.

I bought my '12 CB a year ago with 52K miles. Paid high $20's. for PDK, 19's, etc. $66K original. Being so severely limited in production, and optioned so perfectly for me, I was not going to let a few bucks derail my dream car ownership. I guess I'm getting to old for the "who wins" bullshit of price negotiations! Fair is fair. ,BK

This March I paid $19k for my cayman 987.2 S with 45k miles on the clock...

But that's here in the UAE (Abu Dhabi more specifically) so I don't know if it helps

Prices in the U.S. are roughly >$25 for lower mileage cars and <$25 for higher mileage cars. BringaTrailer.com is a great website with historical selling prices for 987.2 cars. There is a 2011 987.2 selling now with 60k miles with bidding around $20k. Great cars. Have had mine for 7 yrs. no issues. All joy.

Good luck in your search! I found myself in much the same position as I wanted a late Gen 2 base Cayman. My desired spec was Grey/PDK/Sports Chrono package/mileage less than 40k. Just like house buying you never get everything you want. I have monitored prices on Gen 2's through Car Gurus and Autotrader 2009 - 2012 there is a wide variation in pricing and also fluctuation in the pricing of individual cars, two cars in particular went up in price by £5K, maybe so that they can do a 'reduction' later. A reasonable Gen 2 base is in the range £17K - £23K (USD $21.3K - $28.8K) based on year and mileage. In the lockdown period there were no new sales coming onto the market and when I last looked on Car Gurus there were 11 available for sale, although I know at least three were already sold. You have got to be prepared to travel the UK to find the right car there's just not the availability of Gen 2's. What did I end up getting? Well, I couldn't get the colour which seems to be predominant to the Gen 1 Cayman. I did get a sub 35K miles, registered in Mid March 2012, making it one of the last produced, PDK and Sports Chrono with PASM and paid £22K (USD $27.6K) and absolutely delighted with it. The dominant pricing should be based on condition/miles/service history. Compare like for like in deciding value that you would be prepared to pay. The car you want is out there it all depends on when and where.

I purchase my 2010 CS with 45k on the clock two years ago today. Very well optioned with pdk, 19s, and upgraded to Cayman R suspension (the only mod on the car) one owner with meticulous records. Original sticker on it was $79K. I had an independent inspection done prior to purchase and found roughly $3k worth of work that was recommended but not needed immediately. I factored that into the purchase and paid $30k. I've spent about $6k in total maintenance/tires etc. over the past two years (I take it in every six months regardless of mileage). I've put 9k miles on the car since purchase. Best decision I've ever made. I've considered upgrading to newer GTS with the flat six, but honestly can't justify an additional $30k for essentially the same experience. 987.2 is the way to go. Happy hunting!
