Love It — Performance of this car is fantastic! the handling is great, it feels like it is glued to the road. when you brake it feels like your organs move it is that good! acceleration is from 0-60 in about 4.5 seconds, love it! the build quality is fantastic, it is a wonderful place to be, unfortunately the rear tyres wear down quite fast though. there are no squeaks or rattes at all. this car is possibly the best looking car ever, the suble grey stripes are so gorgeous! the car ranges from about 50K to about 60K and is well worth it because it is incredible fun to drive!

Pros: fast, fun, gorgeous, good value.

Cons: tyres wear down quickly

Everything I Could Ask For In My 1st Drive Of A Porsche! — The power to weight ratio on this is bananas! Though it sits low to the ground it's as fun to drive as a rally car. I purposely drove towards the 360 degree on ramps to test the rail like quality of the suspension dynamics...and all I can say is God Bless 2nd gear in this monster. I was more impressed with this machine than the F360 Spyder I drove a couple of weeks ago. I MUST HAVE A CAYMAN OF MY OWN!!!!!

Pros: The black on black tuxedo stripe makes this an intimidating sleeper.

Cons: I don't own it...and the NY City roads.

Another Boxster S? —

On a first glimpse the Cayman S might look like a completely new machine as comapred to the 911s and the Boxster. But if you have ever driven the Porsche Boxter you realize that both cars share the same interiors. Everything just looks almost the same which is the first let down after forking in the extra dollars for the Cayman S. Despite the interiors, the Cayman S also shares the same mid engine design (and even engine) as comapred to the Boxster S which pretty makes it a coupe version of the original Boxster or Boxster S. When we look into engine performance, the Cayman S is on par with the Boxster S. Both cars share the same engine and engine layout making it almost impossible to make a distinction between the 2 when it comes to sheer performance. So it comes to no suprise that both cars are able to hit 0-60 mph in 5.1s. The only distinction in this category is that the Cayman S is able to top a speed of 171 mph and the Boxster S could only handle a speed of 169 mph (big difference huh?) On the plus side though, the Cayman S is still a pleasure to drive. One of the best things to notice about driving the car is its steering feel which makes you feel in total control even if you're taking a high speed hairpin. The suspension on the other hand managed to attain a nice balance of comfort and stiffness. As a bonus, the Cayman S comes with an adaptive damper system which makes the dampers stiffen up even more and also reduces the ride height which caters to a more aggresive and faster driving needs. As we come to the engine, the Cayman S gives the driver precise and sharp throttle response which further enchances the driving experience. This sharp throttle response can be further heightened which to activation of the car "Sports" mode which is designed to handle just this. Overall the Cayman S is still a wonderful machine to be driven The biggest downfall of the Cayman S is the pricing of this car. Even though the pricing of the Cayman S sits in between the Boxster and the 911, the car comes with various options that can bring the price of the car. Consumer will have to pay more to enjoy such options which include, 19" rims, ceramic brakes, metallic paintjobs, sports packages, adaptive damper systems etc. All this put together will just make the bridge between the Boxster and the 911 rather short. As a personal opinion, the Porsche 911 would seem like the better buy if you're willing to dish in the extra dollars into your budget.

Pros: Steering Feel, agile, easy to handle, adaptive dampers, sharp throttle response on sports mode,

Cons: Boxster interior, pricing, added value options,

Race Car. — Parts and service are over priced. Fun to drive and to be seen driving. At age 63 I'm having difficulty getting in and out. This car is not a good choice for daily commuting, it needs to be garage kept and dusted daily.

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

Pros: Good looking Porsche example. Great engine. Ride and handling best when tires are new and springy. Lots of after market accessaries available.

Cons: A little too loud for my comfort, ride a little too rough and brake dust is excessive.

Great Handling In Twisty Roads. — This car is so much fun to drive. It's as long as the 997 in terms of chassis but it's a two seater so when I am driving this on my way to Lake Tahoe, on those long winding and twisty roads, I feel like I am inside a rocket. The brakes are very powerful. Never a moment that I felt this car will oversteer. It's perfectly balanced. And the exhaust note lets out that hummimg sound that's music to my ears. This car wants to be driven, it's gears want to be played. That's why I mostly drive it going up in to Lake Tahoe where I can play with the gears which you can't do when you drive in a highway. And it's solidly built.

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

Pros: When it first came out, fell in love with it. It just looks different. Just like a CAYMAN- love the POINTED front end!!! And it's very comfortable to drive.

Cons: More power...
