So good

I have had 3 911's. and don't get me wrong they were awesome. but actually I prefer this car. trust me, this is no "911 lite". the mid-engine set up with the motor just sitting right on top of you is fantastic in sound and balance. Pure porsche. anyone critiquing the 4 banger hasn't driven it. Granted, I have an S with sport chrono and the sport exhaust but it sounds great. the handling, steering, braking and seating position of this car is just out of this world. and I'm getting great mpg, which has been a real unexpected pleasure.

This is what driving should fee like

If you're a utilitarian and just need a car to get you from point A to B, skip this. If you want to smile every time you pull out of your drive way, I'd recommend a Porsche. We test drove quite a few models, including the Panamera, Macan and Boxster. The convertible version (Boxster) which is built on the same platform is tempting, but ultimately this beauty won out. For a 2.0 liter turbo 4 cylinder engine, this car moves and has plenty of power and stll room to get you into trouble with speeding laws. The car is incredibly well designed with everything simply making sense in the layout. After driving an Acura for the past year and a half, which was a comfortable car but with an infotainment system that is utterly confusing and so poorly designed, I love the simple yet feature-packed Porsche design. If you're looking for a real sports car without breaking the bank, a low-mileage Porsche Cayman cannot be beat.

Technological dream

The Cayman S is a true sports car. This car rides like a dream but handles even better. You can sense the technology in this car when you drive it. The handling is super responsive yet the car has an amazing ride as well. The PDK transmission is unbelievable. Shifts so fast. So smooth. And in manual mode it's even more fun. Launch control is awesome!! This car will get up and go. Best sports car for under $100k!!

I had a 2002 Boxster, this is a bigger car.

The handling is awesome. I couldn't get it to break loose on narrow two lane, 120 degree narrow Appalachian Mtn roads and I tried. Car is bigger than my 2002. I'm way behind on the electronics', still reading the manual over and over. Base model is much faster than old base model. Hell of a car. Not sure why but highway speed,70-80mph, is mid 35mpg for a whole tank, not 28mpg as stated. But I did get to 40+mpg but not on whole tank. Picked it up and drove 4K in three weeks to get home.

Tight as a drum!

Very tight, car is well put together and tight as a drum. While it's fun on the racetrack, it's comfy around town. I'm loving the car!

Performance above 60 mph is phenomenal!

This car handles and performs like no car I've ever owned. Everything about it is incredibly terrific. At speed, its ability to accelerate and pass is almost too good to be true. Additionally, the 718 PDK Cayman gets excellent mileage in the mid to upper twenties. It is so much fun to drive.
