That price is a little high for a 2006 with that many miles, should be closer to $30,000, but it could depend upon condition, the options the car has, and of course it comes with a CPO warranty. To better advise you I'd need to know a couple more things:
1) Did you have the dealer do an ECU readout/printout? This will show any over-revs the engine may have had during it's lifetime thus far. You don't want to buy without this info.
2) What options are on the car.
3) What dealer is selling it and how long does the CPO warranty last for?
With those items I could better advise you on what to do.

- Great looking car inside and out - the improvements are spot on, IMO.
- Lost weight - down to 2,910 lbs in an era where the competition is overweight.
- Best handling Porsche made this side of a $350k Carrera GT.
- At $80k with decent options, only $5k less than I can pick up a base 911 for. Discounts for the next 6+ months will likely be limited to a free Porsche hat.
- Only up 5 hp from previous model, likely because Porsche is worried that no one will buy a base 911 if the Cayman S is faster.
What to do, what to do??? Base 991 w/MSRP of $97k for $84k; order Cayman S w/MSRP of $80k for $80k (and a free hat).

How do you get a base 911 for that kind of discount? Are those for 2012 or 2013? I am considering a new 2014 Cayman S or maybe a leftover 2012 911 or even a used 2012 911 with limited miles. Any suggestions? thanks in advance for any help.

I bought my 07 Cayman S, February 2010, with 19000 miles. Almost 3 years later, my Cayman S has 57000 miles. It's my daily driver and have used it on long trips too. Only minor issues, all fixed under warranty, and regular maintenance, has been my experience. My car runs as strong as ever and you don't have to be "super rich" to own one. Mine cost $35000 when I bought it used. Three years later, I can sell it for $27000 - $30000 fairly easy. You can look it up. They hold their value very well.
