This is my third Porsche after a Boxster and a 911. This is the best performer and most stylish Porsche ever built. It is fun and powerful. If you are not a porfessional driver with access to a speedway, this is the best Porsche you can get and enjoy every single drive.
The body is unique and turns heads all around. Its power is perfect for city and highway driving, and beyond.
In one word "BALANCE." The Cayman is not the fastest Porsche out there, but it is the most balanced Porsche out there. Its handling combined with it's 295HP motor makes it the best driving Porsche to date. Its fit and finish is right up there with the 997s, and it is likely better looking than the 997. I added the Short Shift Kit from Porsche after delivery made and that made it even sweeter to drive. I can say there isn't a better sports car out there for under $120,000 that can touch it.
The steering feel, cornering performance, gear box, seats, engine, exhaust note, and body style.
The Cayman's gorgeous exterior and interior have drawn more appreciative comments than any car I've owned. The optional leather interior is worth the (high) price, as are the more attractive 19" wheels and the sport seats and steering wheel. The chrono looks good, but like the Sport package is worthwhile only if you plan for track use. Its power is especially good at high RPM, ok at low RPM too but not like my Z06 Corvette. The engine sound is exhilarating but can get tiring on the highway. The optional stereo is excellent.
The interior and exterior design, phenomenal handling, precise gearbox, and engine sound.
Fellow owners have already expressed my thoughts. I do not have anything more to add other than this is an incredible handling car for the money. The 10-11 pm side profile is absolutely gorgeous! The 12 noon (head on) profile is stunning! My Boxster S' 18" wheels look great against basalt black.
Too many to list.
The ability to drool over the engine. I would strike the heart of this croc. Maybe a better 9pm side profile.
