2006 Porsche Cayman S 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 6M)


I used to race Porsches and have been waiting for a Porsche that's better than the old 550 RS. I think this one is. Aside from an urge to drive 2 or 3 times the speed limit, this is a perfect car for me. However, that might not be for everyone. It's delightfully noisy, making the multispeaker radio not very useful at speed and hands-off cell phone calls are pretty nearly impossible. For a car that handles this well, it's incredibly comfortable. For a car that accelerates so vigorously and has a top speed around 170 mph, it is unbelievably docile in LA freeway traffic jams. I have about 18,000 miles on her (I name my cars, this one is Chloe) and have had no problems.

Best Features

Are you kidding? Handling is incredible. Acceleration is great but far from what the chassis can handle. But my favorite is the incredible precision of response of the car to everything I ask.

Worst Features

More piercing horn. More power.
