    Beautifully Engineered Piece Of German Art. — I like almost everything about the car, bigger 3.4L engine, sport mode, sport chrono, heated leather seats, surprisingly large cargo space, rare exterior color, best looking wheels available for the time, good sound system, retractible spoiler. I even like the looks of the Cayman more than the 911 of the era. I do not favor the fear of rough roads, parking lots and children being near it that owning a Porsche can bring out in a person. Kind of freaks you out. Maintenance isn't very cheap but it's rarely ever in the shop anyway. These things really are built to last. The guys at Porsche are always very honest and straight forward.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Best looking car on the road for the price. Very dependable.

    Cons: Maintenance costs aren't great but it's not a Chevy...

    Red Rocket. — Extremely quick and maneuverable, but when you keep your foot off the floor it gets truly impressive mileage and is very smooth and refined. 44mpg on a recent trip through the mountains! Maintenance is quite cheap by exotic car standards. Thus far, just oil changes and a new set of tires.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A very practical sports car that looks like a million bucks! Handles great, looks even better.

    Cons: I feel obligated to wash it when it gets a single speck of dust on it. This can be time-consuming.

    The Funniest Car I've Ever Driven — The cayman is one of the best looking and best handling cars on the road. I get looks and thumbs up every time I drive it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun car to drive to buy one. The engine is one of the quickest to respond to the foot on the peddle and even in sixth gear the power and quickness is still there.

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

    Pros: The look the handling the quickness

    Cons: Nothing

    I Have Owned Porsches For A Long Time. This Has Been My Favorite... — Best car for the money hands down. You won't find a better driving experience with any other brand and model unless you add a zero to the end of the price. These cars have been extremely reliable for me throughout numerous boxsters, carerras, caymans... All are great as daily drivers and more than great when the road gets twisty.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's what the 911 should be. Light, nimble, mid-engine, perfect weight distribution, powerful all all revs, great exhaust note, more fun to drive than should be legal!

    Cons: A little rough of a ride for long trips. Don't expect to take anything back from Home Depot.

    A Real Driver's Car With A Healthy Dose Of Luxury — Just plain freakin' awesome. You get near base 911 performance (for comparable model years with superior handling. The maintenance was never an issue and build quality was superior with the exception of the "soft touch" plastic coating that car companies use on black plastic parts which eventually peels off.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, styling, the factory short shifter, drove great in the snow (with snow tires)

    Cons: too much factory sound deadening. could use slightly better throttle response and a free-er flowing exhaust.

    A Very Fun Car That Is Not Overpowering And Easy To Drive Hard — I personally love the looks. Handling & braking performance are excellent. Acceleration is great, but not corvette like. The engine/exhaust sound at the upper end is absolutely unbelievable. The fun factor on a scale of 1 to 10 is a 9. Cost of ownership is what you would expect with a high performance German automobile.

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

    Pros: Looks, handling & engine noise

    Cons: None

    A Best Buy, I Just Had To Have One. — Best sports car I have ever owned which included Lotus Esprit Turbo, two Corvettes and a Nissan 300ZX. Handling on the road and track (at a Porsche DE) has been excellent. Steering, handling, braking and acceleration is all excellent, although some extra torque at lower rpm would be nice. Ride comfort on a 600 nile trip was quite good, if not at Lexus, BMW or Mercedes sedan level, but its a sports car not a luxury sedan, right? The upgraded Bose system is mediocre, but I would rather listen to the sound of the engine anyway. Needs bluetooth and better Navigation system with voice commands like my wifes Infinity or her former Acura. Hopefully newer versions will fix that. I like the styling even better than its big brother. Pricey, but worth it. Overall great!

    Pros: Steering, braking, acceleration, handling, fun

    Cons: No bluetooth, mediocre sound system, no voice commands for the nav and other systems

    Favorite Vehicle I've Ever Owned — The best handling car I've ever driven. Also the sexiest looking...I recommend full leather interior as an option and get a metallic color. It goes through tires pretty quickly when you drive it how it's intended. But worth every penny in fun.

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

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Cost of ownership
