jonnyboy Posted February 26, 2016 Share Posted February 26, 2016 Beanoir was querying my current state of play with the Caymans as I've had a bit of a journey to get where I am with this! So it starts last year I've had a good couple of years in my business (used sportscars sales - boooo!) I've bought and so Caymans before and always loved the chassis/noise and the fact they are a bit more useable than my other specialty the Lotus based cars. I looked round and had seen the Cayman R was quite a striking looking thing but the middle of last year they looked a bit expensove to me. In steps bubblesNW from the Pistonheads Porsche forums and I bought his superb 987 S. This car was essentially an R with PASM is the short way to describe it but its got buckets/spyders/LSD/PCCBs etc it was a great car: Being in the trade I listed it for sale and it sold fairly quickly. I was sad to see it go but I thought no problem I'll get the R that I was looking at originally. I had been talking for a long time to Sarnie another of the old guys from the Pistonheads forum and managed to buy his PDK R which was another great spec car with the buckets/Chrono/Nav basically a unicorn spec R. This is where it gets a bit interesting! I love the R its a great car but for me its a bit too stiff for the roads round here. If I lived in Scotland with some more flat open surfaces I think it would be awesome but I found that the settings which for reference are somewhere in between the two PASM settings just didnt work for me. The car was listed for sale and again sod in fairly short order. Its due to go to its new home on Saturday as it happens. I was back in the my 2003 Nissan Primastar van again but hey spring is round the corner and I have a mountain bike... BUT the other day I got the calI knew I would get one day but hadnt expected it so soon. The guy I sold the unicorn S to calls and he is looking to sell the car! I had to have it back and have actualy paid more for it the second time round! What an idiot! But what a car its perfect for me and cant wait to get it back. Its getting dropped off in Thursday and this time I aint listing it for sale its staying well put! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
