The Cayman is beautifully designed.
It is well balanced with mid engine and wide stance.
It has superior power but isn't over the top 500HP.
It retains it's value or appreciates. How many cars have you owned that go up in value?
Good for travel; trunk in front and back.
Good mileage; 20-25 MPG
Maintenance costs higher but reasonable for performance vehicle.
Makes me proud EVERY time I look at it; turns heads and generates conversation.
Opportunities to join Porsche club and track car if that is your desire.
ultimate driving experience for manual drivers
2007 Porsche CaymanAndrea Smokvina - LOS ANGELES, CA12/31/2015
This car is for people who enjoy a good sports ride, don't commute far distances and don't sit in traffic.
City friendly ride in comparison to Carrera 911 with an exhilarating pull in the back.
The engine in the middle of the car brings the centrifugal force in the curves to the minimum. The car feels like it is glued to the road. Great breaks. Money I spend on gas for this car goes under "entertainment".
I got my Cayman for an affordable price because of higher demand on automatic. American population drives mostly automatic for a few very good reasons: long distances and traffic plus not too many curvy roads in LA where I live. Also, most people opt for a convertible which is not my preference so I got a hard top.
Love this car!
2010 Porsche CaymanTrish C - Baltimore, MD12/07/2015
Ok, this is a great SECOND car - I have a run of the mill, older SUV that I need for transport to work in winter weather. I got the Porsche as a sporty second car. It is great fun to drive a couple of times per week; terrific speed and handling - fun on the highway.
Cargo space is limited so this can only handle enough luggage for long weekend trips for 2 people. Love the unique engineering an styling of this car! Dealer maint is quite costly, but if you can find a good independent mechanic that works on Porsches, it's not too bad.
