The balanced nature of this car stuns me every time I drive it. The combination of chassis, steering, transmission and engine are the best I have ever experienced. It is an easy car to drive around town, but one time on a twisty mountain road is all it takes to feel the superlative power and handling. It is also the best-looking car I've ever owned. The Cayman is surprisingly practical: trunks front and rear mean errands, weekend getaways for two, or even two sets of golf clubs get the green light. The car has been mechanically flawless for 2+ years, although it has two niggling rattles.
Exterior styling, incredible balance, sport shifter, bang for the buck.
The cupholders are a bad joke. Fuel economy is actually pretty good for a sports car, but I dream of even better. My two "9" ratings are because of those two items.
