Congrats it's beautiful!
I'm interested, I had a Porsche as well, and I find the clutch is not as easy/convenient to drive slowly or in the city.
Do you have the same experience?

I would say there's some truth to that. You definitely have to get used to it. Plus it's not at all like the N54 where you have all that torque down low.

Congrats! You might be interested in a small gathering I help host .. brbs.org .. It started as Boxsters but Caymans welcome.. I've been to Dallas, I don't recall any roads with bends Bring it up to NC and drive it on some real roads.. The mountain side Inn we stay at has this right off the parking lot .. http://www.diamondbacknc.com/route.html We'll be heading to Bristol Speedway again too..

The clutch is definitley more stiff than a bmw's and it seams to engage slightly higher... but after a week of driving I'm used to it and am starting to really like it. For whatever reason it is much easier to rev match on downshifts than the BMW and will certainly help me on the track.

Sure dollar for dollar anyone would take a 911, but bang for the buck a Cayman is the much better deal.
They already do run with the 911s.. look at the Porsche website.. Cayman S 0-60 4.7 / top speed 175 ..

Carrera - 0-60 4.6 / top 179
Carrera 4 - 0-60 4.7 / top 177
Carrera 4 Cab - 0-60 4.9 / top 175

There's plenty of mods for a Cayman as well.. My Boxster S had an Intake, Headers, Tune, Exhaust..

I felt exactly the same. Also found rev matching easier on the Porsche.
I really hated getting stuck in traffic with the Porsche, part because of the attention (with no tints as well) and part because I really felt the car is built for having fun in the mountains roads or on the track. I never really took the car out during traffic for that reason.
The BMW is more civilized, although with both cars I always try to avoid any rush hour times and check for traffic before I leave anywhere.
