Ive only had my car a month and a bit now, but what an experience, everything is still so tight and feels amazing. This car is for you if you love a solid great handling car, period. It lacks the straight line speed u might get from a 911 or Z06, but it is great in town around tight corners etc. It handles like a dream due to it's mid engine layout and the brakes are more than adequate. Compared to a base 911, a decked out cayman s with sport exhaust etc is more than worth the money, and as many ppl will tell you, this car is sexy! As for the interior, it is cozy and gives you enough room unless ur over 6'5 or kinda fat. The seats hug you tight, great for tight bends and with a nice options pkg, you'll have lots of buttons to play with (sport, PASM, sport exhaust, spoiler, PSM). The options are expensive to say the least but, go big or go home, you're buying a porsche for a reason, and it's not the price tag. Go for a test drive, you'll see what I mean! Pennorian

Fantastic Car

2011 Cayman S

2011 Cayman S, Carrera White w/ Black & Carbon Fiber Appointment, 3.4L Flat 6 Cyl, Sport Exhaust, 7 Spd PDK w/ Sport Chrono. My First Porsche. What can I say, I've driven performance and luxury cards, this car is the best I have ever driven. I am left smiling every single day I drive it. It is fast, aggressively styled, and drives like a go-cart that is connected to your brain. The feeling of control and road connectivity are nothing short of amazing. It seems to start turning the millisecond I think about the upcoming curve. It truly feels like an extension of your body at times. The PDK transmission is a thing of engineering beauty as well. In "Normal" mode, it feels like a daily driver, smooths low rev shifts, great gas mileage. Put it in "Sport" mode, and it becomes a road sensing and tight, more responsive throttle and shift points move up the rev scale. In Manual Shift and Sport mode the car feels moody and aggressive, like nothing under 4k RPM will do.. Move to Sport Plus, and it 2x as aggressive, too aggressive for the road, ready for a few timed laps at the track. The interior is very comfortable, the controls, although countless, are all within easy reach and clearly labeled. The appointment is great, mine has carbon fiber accessories, and fittings that give it a bit more of a performance look on the interior. The sport 12 way seats are comfortable and very adjustable given that the engine is 12" behind you. Vented and heated, which is nice. Material quality is good, some plastic and soft surface materials that show scuffs, but otherwise cleans up beautifully and is finely appointed. There is cabin noise, a little from the road and a little from the hum and occasional roar of the engine. Crank up the Bose Premium Sound System and you wont even notice it.. But, if you are like me, and like the road noise a little and *love* to hear my car. The Cayman S is like a growling dog that turns into a symphony as the revs go up, harmonics and all. I sometime don't want to listen to music. Storage is ample, but don't plan on a week vacation for 2. Golf clubs fit but are tight, and eat up much of the interior stowage. Overall, I can't say a bad thing about the car, it is fun and powerful, and provides a driving experience that I think is second to none. This relationship could last...

Handling that vett, 911, 650 and alfa lie behind

If you are looking for a big toy that would also takes you to work everyday and makes you proud in the weekend while beating supercars in the ring you need a Cayman S. This is worth every single penny you pay for a car. Of course it is made for a caraholic like myself. I own a daily commuter, a vintage CJ7 for off road and weekend fun and a Cayman S to beat my friend's Maserati and Porches that cost them a fortune. But there is nothing to stop me to take my car for shopping as there is ample storage in front and back of the car and it is easy to drive it in tight corners of the town. Test drive one and then test drive any car that you think is fantastic in handling and maneuverability. You will not be disappointed I promise you that. The 0-60 mph might be more than some of the supercars but the difference is no so big and seems enough for car enthusiasts. The all new Cayman S is even sexier from outside but the 987.2 that I own is still a very sexy car and I wouldn't change it with a base 911. The design is different from any other traditional old fashioned Porsche and I think by designing it Porsche showed they can also be fashionable. The rear of the car looks exactly like the bottom of a crocodile (Cayman) minutes before invading the prey and I love this section very much as this is like no other car in the planet. The acceleration is very good with the premium petrol and the cost of running is reasonable provided you treat it civilised like myself. I have owned this 2011 Cayman S for 2 years and I am very much happy with it.
