2009 Porsche Cayman Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.9L 6cyl 6M)


Review

If your looking for the ultimate sports car, look no further than a Porsche Cayman. From style, performance & relying on a driving experience like no other, all signs point to a Cayman. First, it's a two-seater with enough room for storage & weekend getaways. Due to the unique hatchback design, I can pack my golf clubs, suitcases & accessories with more room available in the forward trunk compartment. German design shares this idea with it's cousin, the VW. Comfort, handling and performance will get you to where you need to go in record time, if you so choose. Shifting & speed gets you around slow traffic & into the clear in a breeze. Gas mileage is excellent & style points off the charts. The Base model has enough HP @275 to give you the driving experience you can enjoy. The S model, for 30 more HP & 5K to 9K more cash, boasts you to dangerous speed levels, if your not experienced. Go test drive a used Cayman & you'll see for yourself why Porsche has been the premier sports car maker for decades!

2009 Porsche Cayman Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.9L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Driving a Cayman is like driving a VERY fast go cart. The mid engine design makes the twisties incredibly fun. Porsche doesn't let you down even with the "smaller" of their line. Get one of your own...you can't have mine!

2009 Porsche Cayman Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.9L 6cyl 6M)


Review

If you hate the Prius, this is the metaphysical opposite. Fun versus Big Nurse. After seven years, I still love my Cayman S. The tuning done at Sharkwerks, i.e., Tubi exhaust, chipped onboard computer, carbon fiber interior components, and light-weight and oversized HRE alloy wheels, helps.

2009 Porsche Cayman Coupe S 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 6M)


Review

We stopped by a Porsche dealership to test drive the 911 S. My wife saw the Cayman S, and she wanted to test drive it as well. We ended up with the mid-engine Cayman S. Best decision I've made.


Best Features

PDK, Sports Chrono, chassis, steering feel and handling, acceleration, bullet-proof feel, and the exterior looks looks looks. Not a rattle to be heard. Solidly built.


Worst Features

Bi-Xenon headlights should be standard on a $77,000 car.

2009 Porsche Cayman Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.9L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The 2.9 L Cayman has plenty of power for the public roads with good low-end torque. Cabin space is limited while the rear window provides limited visibility. The exterior design grows on you and it is refreshing since the 911 has not changed much in its history. I had an issue with a missing key which took over 1 hour for the dealer to program. The passenger window does not close properly with automatic feature. I dislike Porsche dealers and salespeople - they think it's so special. It's expensive. The interior materials are top quality now with lots of leather, alcantara, and carpeting. Fit is solid with only a minor rattle from passenger side. Ride is very hard, especially with 19"


Best Features

Exterior design, Bi-Xenon Lights, Smooth shifting 6- speed gearbox, look of the 19" Carrera II wheels, Sound and Responsiveness from Flat-6 engine.


Worst Features

More cabin space, Spare Tire Please, Better Radio and Speakers, I'd rather have 18" wheels for California roads.
