This is a sexy car and drives well. Not much room for anything though.
The Affordable Porsche, The Cayman
2009 Porsche CaymanTrackfaster - Marina Del Rey, CA.12/03/2012
After trading in my '05 Mazda RX8, i was looking for an affordable sports car upgrade that wasn't a convertible. Nothing i saw was remotely better than my RX8 until i reviewed the base Porsche Cayman. Debuting in '06, the hardtop/hatchback Cayman offers Porsche quality at a realistic price point. The key is finding the right combo of year & mileage. In '09, the Cayman received significant upgrades inside & out. Too many to list here but the highlights include better horsepower, suspension, comfort & design. The base model is $10K lower on average than the S series, which has 315hp. At 265hp, it has plenty of power & handling is a dream. The automatic, which is harder to find, has paddle shifters on the steering wheel to easily segue into manuel mode if you so choose. Excellant gas mileage is a surprise bonus. 20 city, 28 highway. If you think you could never afford a Porsche, consider test driving a Cayman. You won't be sorry.
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.
