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.
The 911 is an exquisit all around vehicle. It isn't that it is the best at any one thing but a whole package. Drives excellent and comfortable. I can easily get our basic family groceries in the trunk. I put my son in and out of the back carseat daily (carseats can be a challenger). Biggest flaw I know of is the entry seat bolsters wear quickly due to their size and firmness. Seems like they could have had a more durable leather on that portion. Learning to sit properly helps but we are short and taller folks I can see being even harder on them.
Love my first Porsche Cayenne
2011 Porsche Cayenne HybridGeorge Lim - San Francisco, CA01/07/2016
The unique thing about the Cayenne S Hybrid over their other S models is their Audi S4 V6 as oppose to the regular V8 engines. This is by far not a bad thing at all; in fact, I believe the engineering on this beast allows for a great interplay between cruising while being somewhat fuel efficient and switching into Sports Mode to have a responsive supercharged hybrid engine with loads of torque launching itself from a red light. The handling grips well like a sports car and the interior with panoramic roof is second to none.
The speed on this Cayenne should not be underestimated. I'm a casual driver and find myself at times testing the power of the Porsche.
