Hey, I won't argue that it is a fantastic car, but I personally find the exterior design to be really quite terrible. It's too featureless for a car that big.
I agree; that's probably why it took them so long to come out with something like this...how do you design a luxury 4door saloon while maintain distinctly Porsche aesthetics? It drives VERY well IMO but is too unremarkable looking for my tastes in that class. I'd prefer a Rapide or Quattroporte. Hell, even a 6 liter V12 S-Class I'd take or a Panamera.

I'm pretty much in situation as you. Either keep the BMW or move over to a Cayman S... I'm really leaning towards the Cayman S. more of a true toy/weekend car.

The Cayman is a better car in every aspect of it, but it is a maintenance queen (even compared with turbo BMWs).

i would get a Cayman and mod it. Modded Porsches look great. I want to sell my car for a used 911, but i dont see that happening anytime soon lol

It will handle better, but a totally different car. It is quick, but I blew the doors off one at a stop light recently in my heavy 335 xdrive. Dude was pissed.
