I agree, there is no other car that I've driven that has the balance, weight distribution and road hugging attributes of the 987 I acquired last year. The 914's have some of the same attributes, but still fall short in some areas.

Unfortunately, I'm still recuperating from my December 27th. mishap, so my Cayman is sitting in the garage in AZ until I feel well enough to get back out there (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

I've had mine (987.1) now since 2016. Amazing car!

I have put 50k miles on it in that time (~92k total) which includes 4 trips across country between San Diego and Seacoast NH and one round trip from NH to Chattanooga, TN. It is quite the GT car for sure.

I have run the Tail of the Dragon twice and once on the Cherohola Skyway both in TN. Countless canyon runs in Southern California and the best the New England has to offer.

All told I have been through 28 states in the thing.

Issues/maintenance for 50k miles:

Tires
Regular Oil changes
More tires
A split "Y" on the fuel rail
A dropped headliner
More tires (get the picture? About 30k miles for the fronts, 15k for the rears)
Broken inner driver's door handle

Just ordered a complete exhaust from Soul Performance (soulpp.com). I cannot wait for it to get some singing lessons from that!

I'll say it again...amazing car!

Broke even.....Susan doesn't like the color but I love it. She claimed that's what happens at 60.

So I sold it for what I bought it for and had three great years of driving it for free.

I don't plan on selling this one.

You know I have a soft spot for the Sapphire Blue...

But hey, this one is an R

Congrats.

Saw a Red Cayman R last time I had my Cayman in for service.

I’m considering purchasing an ‘08 987.1....has anyone encountered any IMS issues? Is this concern overblown for the ‘06-‘08 larger bearing that Porsche installed in the gen. 1 cars? I know the bearing isn’t serviceable on these later cars.

With what you are considering a little more money and avoid the issues. I love my '16 GT4.

It's serviceable, but from what I've read, it requires a complete motor teardown do replace it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

I've had an 08 2.7L since new and now have 80K + on it without any service problems other than normal loose headliner(warranty repair). Had spark plugs and 2 cracked coil packs replaced at 60K, and happy drives since then. It does eat rear tires at about a 20K rate, but a couple of autocrosses helped there!
