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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Handling/composure, Sleek looks, it's a Porsche :)

Cons

Some will feel that it's for those who cannot afford a Carrera or higher, it lacks power in terms of off-the-line, the resale value

It Depends What You Want Out Of A Car; Everything About This Car Is A 50/50. — The Porsche Cayman S is a very unique car, it is only one of a few current mid-engined coupes. In terms of performance I found it controversial. This car is always composed in terms of handling. You will hardly find it understeering or oversteering. If you want a car that just sits neutral all the time it will be the Cayman/S. However, I found that the 3.4l engine while being sufficient... just lacked somewhat in terms of off-the-line power. The power only really kicks in above 5000 rpm. The Cayman S is great for top speed runs but in the real world, I believe more should have been emphasised on the 0-100km/h time as this is what you use more. The brakes were great, I find them better than my current car. Build quality: it's a Porsche. You won't expect anything below good. It has never needed repairs besides that of the usual service. The Porsche service is great as well: they are very efficient. Appearance: It was a 50/50 for the Cayman S. It is true, you either love it or you don't. I still see current Caymans or Cayman S's and find that they have quite a presence on the road. You will hardly find a more smooth styling; everything just seemingly flows together. The only complaint was that I felt possibly the spoiler was too small to look good or have much impact. I considered adding a TechArt spoiler on top as I felt that would have improved looks if we had kept the car. All types of maintenance for any high end car such as a Porsche is going to be high. If it is covered under the maintenance plan then good, if it is not... you are going to run into a bit of trouble with your wallet. The fuel consumption was very decent for such a car. It was around the 12l/100km area and that's on par with the cars in the Cayman S's segment such as the Audi TT 3.2 Quattro. Last the fun factor: this car was great to drive. I took it on weekends with my father on cruising routes. It is great around bends and if you accelerate from a speed of about a 100km/h it really pulls well. This car was made for top end speed I found and on long cruises it suits this car well.

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.

Pros

Performance - Fun to drive

Cons

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

75

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.

Porsche Cayman S — Performance - Great acceleration, unbelievable handling. It eats corners for lunch. Build Quality - I've owned it for two years and its been in for service once! Appearance - One of my favorite cars on the road. Cost of Ownership - Gas is reasonable (unless you're pushing it) Fun Factor - 15 out of 10

Pros

Hips, raspy howling exhaust (I recommend other drivers research Speedart exhausts), you feel it understand the road through your fingertips.  Every cycle of the engine is woth listening to.

Cons

It does ride like a sports car.  It would be nice as a turbo.  I expect this porsche to evolve more over the years.  I especially expect Porsche to lend more cache to this line as the 911 driver ages.  I think Porsche would do well for itself by initiating new Porsche drivers with a I've got a secret (cayman is better) campaign.  I'm impatient, I would like a 3.8 liter turbo cayman now.

Mine Lives And Drives In The Mountains. — I would opt for the short throw manual transmission, although the regular manual is solid. The PDK Is supposedly superlative for a slush box. Every time I drive this car it makes me smile. Once you have driven it for a stretch, especially if the road has no curves, you might wish for just a little more power.

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

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).

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!

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.
