I have had both and the cayman is the one to go for, a better drive and bags more quality.
The 370z feels like a tin box on wheels, not very fast either.
It's a no brainer.

Cayman S over 370z or z4m. Just a better car in all regards.

Cayman. Apparently that car handles like a dream and is very fun to drive. The Nissan is nice but I wouldn't take it over the Porsche.

Z4MC is on par/same level as Porsche Cayman S. Its really a toss up between these two cars.

Nissan 370z? Wouldn't waste a penny on any Nissan, including the GTR. Been there, done that.

Cayman all the way.

Especially if you plan to track it. 370 is known for over cooking its brakes and actually failing due to inadiquate cooling.
