Thanks for the info again. Still not comfortable proceeding without a least a VIN.

I was able to extract the embedded GPS information from the photos you sent. All the photos were taken at a dealership in Illinois.
(photographed in front of the same wall also). Can you please explain this?

Give me a shout when you – and the car are back in Calgary and we can do this deal in person.
Or I will fly out there and pick up the vehicle in Thunder Bay. Alternatively, I also have a close family member in Thunder Bay that can check out the vehicle. Let me know when/where he can view the car.

If not, no deal. Good luck with the sale if you can’t meet those terms.

Morning Rob,

I just woke up (will be a long day today on the site with the restoration of the house) and the truth is that as much as I want to speak with you over the phone prior to move forward with this transaction, I do have big problems in communicate (a kind of a recent accident) and I hope you’ll understand me because it’s a long story anyway and one of the reasons for selling. However, we can meet face to face when I’ll be back home again and have a chat then. you’re close to buy my car (in case you like it) so, we’ll be connected somehow. Let me explain everything. the eBay Vehicle Protection Program acts as a neutral third party to guarantee a safe transaction between both parties. In brief, this is how it works:
1. once I have your full name, address and phone# I will forward them to eBay so you will be notified with the forms needed for this transaction (invoice, payment instructions, buyer and seller protection policy).
2. upon starting the process and your decision to move forward, you will be notified on every step taken. the Cayman is already at eBay shipping company here in Thunder Bay,ON in their custody, along with the title and all papers/documents. Their British shipping company will be in charge of the delivery process to your door and handling payment. The vehicle will be brought over in order for you to inspect/test it – loaded on a trailer and fully insured during the trial period and transportation. This comes with up to 5 days inspection period (the shipping fee is $149 and you will only be charged upon vehicle acceptance). 35% down payment is required by eBay to do this, using bank transfer as method of payment. For obvious safety reasons, any payments are being handled directly through them and their British shipping company, so I’m only getting paid at the end, once you’ll be in possession of the Porsche and upon your decision to keep it. The remaining balance will be due within the following 14 days. On the other hand, full refund is also guaranteed same day in case you decide not to, with no shipping back costs to pay. these are the terms, let me know what you think. If you’re into it, please email me your info (full name, address and phone#) so I can contact eBay in order initiate the transaction as soon as possible for your convenience.

Thanks and looking forward to your reply,

Good afternoon Rob,
The reason is simply I like it very much how its feels when you ride it with the new exhaust but no problem we still have our stock exhaust + 4 new winter tyres.

Let me know if you need any additional info on how it works the eBay vehicle purchase program and we hope we receive a good price offer.

Thanks for the photos an additional information.
One more question for you.
1) Why does the car not have the original exhaust. The 2007 cayman has a single tip exhaust, not dual tips.

Hi Rob and thanks for getting back to me. Rob, for the moment I’m located near Thunder Bay,ON restoring an old family property, and the Porsche is with me. Will return home (Calgary) in 4-5weeks, however, arrangements can be made for you to get the Cayman at your door in NW Calgary within 24hrs if you’re into it. I’ve signed on for the eBay vehicle purchase program, which guarantees a fast and hassle free process (including up to 5 days trial period – enough time to decide if you want to buy it or not, $149 shipping fees-your share, no extra charge or hidden fees). Let me know if you need any additional info on how it works, and if you need any more details about the vehicle.

P.S: You don’t have to worry about it was joking “never laid down” in my mind means that we had very good care of car. Pictures attached per your request.

Thanks for the quick response.
A little confused with you comment. What do you mean by “never laid down” in the response?
I am still interested in the vehicle, and would like to see it in person if possible. Can you take some more pics of the front storage area under the hood also?

I’m located in NW Calgary, where are you located?

Hi Rob and sorry for my delayed reply. The Porsche is still available, same asking price as stated in the ad. The Cayman is in perfect working and aesthetic condition, never involved in any accidents, A+ mechanical condition, never had any problems with it what so ever. there are no scratches or any dents on it, never laid down, very well maintained as the photos clearly show. It has all the papers and documents available, clean title, first and original owner. Any questions or need more pictures? do not hesitate to ask, and I’ll do my best to help you out with the best of my knowledge. where exactly are you located?

Thank you,

P.S: If you be willing to buy my car we can purchase a CarProof report for you and will be no problem but I can assure you this is in perfect condition the car.
