Sometimes, used-car prices cause one's eyes to pop. That is the case here, with this 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS. It's certified pre-owned, and at $78,000, it's not cheap.

The car is still under factory warranty, but not for long. However, the CPO warranty is good til 2025. There are 43K miles on the clock. The car has the sport SPASM suspension, Apple CarPlay, premium package with sport seats, heated steering wheel, and lane assist.

The owner is offering a winter wheel/tire set.

A reminder that this feature isn't an ad -- we're not trying to sell this car. But if we were, would you pay that price for a late-model CPO Cayman? Sound off below.

    Aren't toy cars by definition those with 2 seats?

      I own an older 335i convertible that I think is a toy car but that has four seats.

    The market for late model Porsche sports cars is nothing but strong now. Much of that is driven by the year plus wait for a new one, and in the 718's case, the changeover to the EV version in two or three years.

    The price on this car is not really out of line.

      There's a very real possibility if you walked into a Porsche dealer today and asked about an allocation for a Cayman GTS you'd be told that they could not guarantee you'd get one before the switchover to the EV version, and you'd be asked to pay $15,000 additional dealer markup, on a car that starts at $90,000, and to which most buyers would add $10,000 or more in options.

      Porsches are not good values. The only reason to buy one is that you really like the way it drives. It will not be cheap to buy or maintain, but it will be fun to drive. If you're looking for something luxurious or low maintenance, a Porsche is not that.

  • Redapple2 C2 is the best. C3 next. Then C7 (looking at you jimII).
  • Jeff S Vulpine--True the CAFE rules are for ICE.
  • Gray I grew up in the era of Panther and Fox platforms. If only they developed a good looking two door Conti. The four doors became a cult in their own right. And kept the 351W as a top line option.
  • Vulpine ABSOLUTELY YES!!! Bring back the TRUE compact trucks. The demand for them is far higher than the OEMs want to admit.
  • Brn More likely, with Google having troubles, the money tree isn't as ripe as it once was and cutbacks are needed.I hope the overall industry continues to evolve. When I get the the point I can't easily drive, I would still appreciate the independence that autonomous vehicles can bring.
