2008 Porsche Cayman S, an exhilarating ride!
Pros: the sound and the fury
Cons: nothingI wish I could always have a two-seat porsche coupe in the garage. Unlike other high-end sports cars, it is an everyday, albeit thrilling, ride. Great stereo system, but the rumble of the engine is the best music. The Cayman S hugs the road with tremendous torque, keeping you firmly planted on the ground at any speed. The mid-engine provides front and rear trunk space, enough for luggage or a shopping spree + groceries.
Pros: Tight responsive handling.
Cons: Bose system is not all that great
Advice: Don't buy a lot of optionsTight, crisp, responsive, on rails, steering. Adequate acceleration and very good gas mileage for a car in this performance range if you stay off heavy throttle use. Hard to do. Just plain fun to drive. Have 1500 miles so far on new 2007 Cayman.
Pros: dashboard crono to time yourself.
Advice: Cayman S has more powerThe seats are ok but not the ultimate in confort, The car is set up for speed if you want confort or long drives this car is not it. The handling is suberb specially at high speeds, cornering rocks. I do have a second vehicle so this is my Sunday car, I would not recomend this as a primary car specially for long drives.
