Comparing a Cayman to a Miata is absurd. Not your cup of tea?......thatís fine, but the Cayman is an impressive little beast and a true thrill to drive. I had one for a brief period of time, and it didnít quite have the character that my 964 had so I decided to let it go. That said, I never felt that it was an inferior car or something that could even be compared to the likes of a Miata.........

As to the OPís question.......itís already been answered by others. No, the Cayman will never be considered collectible in the sense that you are thinking. The cost of ownership combined with the depreciation is a losing proposition unless you are in it only for the joy of driving.

Blue book, edmunds any value guide doesn’t mean **** for a car like this. Just like a 968 people price them through the roof and they sit for a year unless it’s pts or special options. They search for their own car, price then to market and they are all high. Every car is different. Some sellers will wait and some don’t. If a car is 35% over ending auctions how do you ever make that call and start negotiating? It’s a waste.

FWIW I have seen this car around town and it does look sharp and unmolested. I don't know the driver and looks pricey for a 2006. Worth a look if you are serious.

I think the R and GT4 Cayman's may become collectable in the future. Spyder Boxster also.

In 2017, I almost bought a 2009 Cayman base for $24k. It had 40k miles. If these are the current prices, than maybe it's already collectible, because it looks like prices have increased in the last two years?? Didn't look at posted links, so it may be S vs base...

Cayman collectible ? I donít think so . My friend bought a new one , ordered it from Germany in 08. With full
Leather and better steering wheel for $65,000. He went to see about a new Tesla 3 and they told him is car was worth about 23,500. His car is perfect with 50,000 miles.

Some items that may prevent the 987.1 from being "collectible"

1) Production quantity
2) IMS

Once you get past those two, and realise it may take till its 20 years old to actually bottom out in value, I am sure there were better financial investments.

Could you make your money back? yeah.. but it will take a while.

A Cayman R or GT4? yup. Boxster Spyder? sure. Even one of those funky "design editions" or a paint to sample in a unique color might be ok.. but just another Gray over Black Cayman S - nope.

imho, "open" cars (ie Boxster) would be the more collectible car in the future. Why? because once they are old cars, people stress performance less. And driving around in an old "open" car is much more fun for the senses and the family.

356 coupe or speedster/roadster/cab? On a nice sunny spring or fall day, give me the open top.

That doesn't negate the argument.
Everyone has a different definition of collectible.

I think a BMW E30 is collectible.
Until recently, they were $2500 cars.
But, people do collect them.
They have transcended daily driver status.
They are also no longer depreciating.

This is what I meant... itís pretty rare that a car doesnít depreciate from when it is brand new. The question was more along the lines of ďhave we reached the point where depreciation has stalled, and values could start going up. The Cayman is a desirable, drivers car, and production numbers were relatively low.

That's part of my interest in a 987.2. 6spd and that fantastic 2.9l engine.

Cars become collectibles randomly. Nobody can say what a 35 year old with some money in his pocket will want in 20 years. Could be a Cayman could be a Miata could be anything.

I'd like an earlier Cayman myself but won't touch a pre-09 cuz da IMS. Which is also why they're pretty cheap.

I had an '07 Cayman S. Great car around town and it was fun when I took it to the track a couple of times. It had the expensive (and therefore rare) PASM option. But it was Guards Red so it had to go. Sold it to my next door neighbor. That was 6-7 years ago and he's still enjoying it.

Can't see it becoming any kind of classic, but they are really nice cars.

Saw this thread and had to register and comment.

This is my car and I'm put it up just to see if I can sell it.

It's been up there because I've listed last year, I didn't renew it for a while and then decided to renew it again. Hence the long time.

And yes, people have been offering me 20k 21k all day long... My local dealership offed this much so I told them have a nice day.

Had a couple potential buyers come test drive the car and got PPI done but end up getting other Caymans. At the end it comes down to what the buyer wants and color combination/options.

Most of the people on Cargurus basically ask if the car is still available and didn't reply anything after I responded them.

Well, if you're looking for feedback, I'd put your car at about $22-$23k. It has visible wear and tear (front bumper, interior), and being from NJ/snowbelt is a hit to value as well. You get a price bump for the PASM, and maybe for the lobster fork wheels. Good luck!
