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

Awesome Car. — Compared to the BMW 330ci Convertible, this is wayy better. The handling is perfect and the torque is adequate. The car pulls you back into the seat when you accelerate. When you want the power, it's their. Even if you are not going over the speed limit, it feels like it in this car. The car proves its space with many storage areas around the driver and passenger. The sound system is great and the seats are quite comfortable. I would highly recommend this car to anyone wishing to enjoy a beautiful ride.

Pros: Acceleration, Torque, Interior, Exterior, Mid engine.

Cons: Fuel economy, but what can I expect.

It Rocks — Fast safe solid. Mid engine makes it drive on rails. If you go the need for speed this is it!

Pros: it's hot

Left Me Cold. Not A Good Sign For A Sportcar. —

The Cayman S ... another huge disappointment. Yes, despite the lack of a locking rear differential (my God, the tyres suffered on the track), it handles beautifully and with only 295hp it could easily keep up with the Aston, and yes again, it was the most practical of the bunch, along with the Corvette ... Oh, and the interior quality is not a myth ...yep, it is that good! However, it had to many drawbacks to convince me. First, I'm not too sure about the look. It was (see picture) in black, so the color masked some of the lines ... and thank God for that because the other ones I saw in different colors are just ugly. Sorry Porsche, but you need to hire designers that are not blind! Another issue is the lack of sensation. You feel very safe in this car, and the stability control is great: let you slide a little bit before intervening, I loved it. And on the track, it was very, very stable. I spun only once with it ... only because I wanted to. Still, the Gallardo proved that fun could come along with safety and the Cayman S just didn't seem to get that idea. So, I couldn't give it credit for the wonderful PASM (suspension) system or for the best manual gearbox I've ever come accross ... it should have mattered but then it didn't because this car left me cold. The Corvette gave me a nice surprise, the Gallardo was sublime. Even the V8 Vantage irritated me ... The Porsche? Nothing. Just like a daily driver ... a nice one, no mistake, but it's just the type of car that you leave in your garage at night without looking back at it ... so not my type of car.

Pros: 295hp "only" but you feel like you've got 100 more, it's more than just well-built and there's a lot of chance that it will never go wrong.

Cons: There's not a sense of passion around that car, and it's a real shame. I couldn't live with it.

I actually owned several 3-series and a Corvette so I chose cars I knew. While the corvette was super brutal in a straight line, it was really scary in curves. BMW is nice but not as nimble as the Cayman. Cayman is pure driving bliss.

Reincarnation For Ferrari Dino By stevepaa

Excellent car, but it is a 6 speed and does not fit for my daily hour stop and go commute. I use my 911 tip for that. So this car does not get out too much and I don't need it. Read More
