Best Sports Car On The Market — The car feels like it was custom made for the driver. Very safe handling, lots of power, shifts like butter. Outside of a Lambo, this is the nicest car I have ever driven. Long curvy country roads make you feel like you're at Lemans. I love this CAR.

Exquisite handling and looks.

Cons

AC and heater controls are annoying. I'd prefer knobs to rocker switches.

Near Perfection — I absolutely love this car. The cons are minor, but pros are significant. Handling is the best I've ever experienced short of the Cayman GTS. I've owned several BMWs including a Z4 and other sports cars. This is by far the best. If you like to do your own maintenance, removing one of the spark plugs (driver's side front) is a bit of a hassle likewise having to remove the wheels to do so. Otherwise, pretty straightforward.

Everything Else, Other Than A Gt3, R8 Or 458 Etc, Will Be A Step Down — This is the best car I have ever driven. Even after 4+ years of owning it I smile every time I get in it. The steering feel is amazing. The brakes fantastic. The engine sound just right. I wish it had more power and I'm thinking about 996 GT3 seats. It has been (knock on wood) cheap to maintain (I DIY most everything). Can't go wrong w/ one. Don't sweat the IMS/RMS stuff you hear. Just get a pre purchase inspection (PPI) if you plan to buy one (or a 996).

Pros

Handles well, quick and fun to drive, gets looks everywhere. If I had a dollar for everytime someone said "that car is awesome," I would be buying a new Turbo!

Cons

Small fit for someone over about 6'2" not good for winter (no one should be buying this for winter) Tires are super sticky and need replaced regularly if you keep the OE tires but the car will respond greatly when you do replace them. They are actually resonable in price.

Its A Porsche — I have heard many people say that the Cayman S was the new Carrera...there have been many dedicated Porsche owners disappoint with some of the newer models but this car has the feeling, speed, and handling of the tradition Porsche has built. Decent gas milage, reasonable maintainance, it is the best of sports luxury and praticality that I have seen in a long while. I would own another as soon as I have made it thru kids that can not fit in the trunk. HA

Pros

-Superb handling from proven mid-engined design, steering is telepathic in nature
-World famous Porsche brakes keep cool under hard track driving and able to stop on a dime
-Acceleration that puts you in your seat
-Beautiful looking car with classic Porsche lines
-Hatchback design gives you two trunks! Plenty of luggage space for such a small car

Cons

Handles better than a 911, thats why Porsche won't give it more power
Should have waited for PDK

Agile And Fast! — This car is a thrill to drive. Light and nimble and able to make efficient use of its 295hp. The Cayman S can handle anything you can throw at it with style and ease, and can make a bad driver perform like a pro! It will keep up to the more powerful 911 on the track and costs much less. Although the suspension is tight, on city streets it is much smoother than most sports cars of this caliber, and handles bumps and dips quite well. The seats are comfortable and the interior is clean and well put together. The car is quiet at highway speeds, except for the beautiful sounds of the engine, when the gas peddle becomes your volume control. For extened trips, the Cayman S has two trunks! The one in the front is large and deep, able to handle even the biggest luggage bags. The other, located under the hatchback, will handle two golf bags and then some. In the three years I've owned the car I have done nothing except regular oil changes and scheduled maintenance. Not bad for a car that has seen many long days at the track.

If You Can Afford This Car, You Can't Afford Not To Own It! — Currently my favorite car on the market. Handles better than any other car I've driven, and has nearly enough power to compete with the 911. With the new option of a limited slip differential, this is likely the most fun you can have in a car. Born for back road twisties, the 49/51 ratio provides a nearly unnoticeable understeer until you really cut in and start to slide the back end. The transitions are very manageable and you get a great feel from the car that lets you know that you're approaching its limits without just crushing you with its might. And it's got a decent sized trunk and hood storage for actual luggage!

I miss the convertible

Cayman S — The fastest thing I've ever owned... I love it! The handling, with the mid-mounted engine makes for a perfect drive,. You always feel like you're driving the car, not the other way around. The tiptronic gearbox has taken some getting used to. My foot misses the clutch motion when I go to overtake.

My Cayman S — Best car I have ever owned. Hope I get to keep it after we have kids. I have never experienced a car that handles like the Cayman S. Nothing beats mid-engine configuration. Engine can have a bit more low end grunt. Rock solid build quality, as expected of Porsche. Quite fuel efficient too, averaging 19.6 mpg.

Performance - Fun to drive

Couple of manufacturer defects and mechanical problems have plagued an otherwise wonderful car

Cayman — Car is low on torque but if you keep the tach higher then 5000 rpm it is unsurpassed. Makes AZ roads fun to drive on. Mechanically, the car has been delivered with some defects that can be attributed to the first model year of the 2.7 cayman. AC and Transmission have both had problems. Service intervals lead to higher cost for regular maintenance, but nothing worse then BMW or Audi have charged me with past vehicles. Overall handling is unbelievable. There may be cars that can go faster from stop to 60 and even in a straight line, but once you hit the twisty bits of road this car shows its true colors.

Okay — The car was not everything that you would expect but was still a nice car, but not my favorite. The performance is fun but even my R32 feels like it has way more than this, and that is a heavy hatch, not a light Porsche. In total, I would rather drive my R than this.
