Very nice Cayman but I couldn't live with "only" 320 hp in my main car. I'm spoiled by my 335i.

Sorry but you made a mistake. The new Cayman is great, but that one not so much. It's loud, rough, uncomfortable and I could go on and on. Still good luck with it!

Is a M3 or 650i better than Cayman? Just trying to figure out BMW's equivalent. Thanks

looks good, but can i ask why you didn't get a 911? even if a brand new one is too expensive, im sure a 2/3 year old one could be found for comparably money. Always felt the cayman was Porsche's attempt at making something better then a boxter, but never quite as good as the 911, otherwise there would be no point to buy one

HRE wheels....Front: 19X8.5 with 245/35....Rear 19X11 with 285/30. I'm going to have to solve that next year...

And how do you know what the new one feels like??? Its a Porsche......its not a luxury car...its designed for performance. Maybe you should actually drive one for a bit or even on a track.....

They are both better at straight line speed but the Cayman S is better in every other performance way.

I love 911's, but a comparable CPO is about 15K more than my CPO'ed Cayman S. So its really about what I can afford. Porsche will never let a Cayman be better than a 911.....but with some simple upgrades the average driver will be faster around a track with the Cayman
