Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for, CarFax,, High Gear Media, Torque News,,, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as,, and He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    You can get a 911 4s for about that amount. Way too overpriced and no mileage listed

    My brother has owned 3 of these in various flavors over the years. And while its an amazing driving machine (I've driven it on track). I fail to see $40k here when my 2014 C7 Z51 is about the same price on the used market. For the $$ the 'Vette is newer, has way more interior storage, a V8, quicker and with the mag-ride and PTM system will handle almost as good. The main reason I went with Chevy is engine is totally accessible in case you need to turn wrenches for any reason. The Cayman's engine location may give it awesome handling but even doing an oil change is a challenge. When I was looking at buying one you have the additional problem of how Porsche's are configured. Its almost impossible to find two models with the same option boxes checked. And as mentioned color choices are pretty limited.

    A 2008 Cayman S with 5,000 miles just changed hands on BringaTrailer for $36,500. This price is fantasyland. These cars have never recovered from the reputation that Porsche's pathetic engineering talents and lack of integrity has imbued them with. 5k-Mile 2008 Porsche Cayman S 6-Speed for sale on BaT Auctions - sold for $36,500 on April 6, 2024 (Lot #142,364) | Bring a Trailer

      Saw the headline pic and thought, okay if it's in good shape with records that's a $20-22k car. LOL 40.
