Review of 2008 Cayman S - 6 Speed Manual
Comfort: I'm 5'11" 190 pounds. Between the seat and steering column adjustments, I found a perfect balance of comfort, dash view, and console access. I have the Bose Surround system which comes in handy on a long highway drive given that this is a mid engine vehicle.
Performance: The ease at which this car is brought to speed is amazing. Hearing the engine cycle while shifting is an awe inspiring sound. The car is so solid through acceleration, you might want to keep one eye on your speed. The advantage of a mid engine design is evident with very responsive steering. It feels glued to the road in turns at speeds you might not try in another car.
Value for the Money: I couldn't be happier with my purchase. A used Cayman S is the best way to go to achieve Value for the Money, especially when one considers cost of ownership like Maintenance and Insurance.
About a week after buying my 2008 Cayman S, things started going wrong - Tire Pressure Sensor giving inaccurate readings or failing, brakes sqealing, and brake light going out intermittently.
Some of these problems I would have noticed if Carmax gave me more than a 90 second test drive, but alas.
Cabin is plush but cramped - hard to get in and out of if you're over 5'11.
Performance and driving experience are outstanding.
Overall wouldn't buy again, too many errors this soon in for a car with only 23k on the Odometer.
