Contrary to popular belief, the vaunted Porsche 911 is not the brand's most dynamically endowed performance car. Delivering the same weight balance found in the world's most sophisticated racecars, the mid-engine 2014 Porsche Cayman is perhaps the purest embodiment of a true driver's car. Lighter, wider, faster, and more efficient than its predecessor, the all-new Cayman is also more refined, offering a newly available Burmester premium audio system, optional adaptive cruise control, and top-notch interior materials. Like its drop-top twin, the Porsche Boxster, the 2014 Cayman offers a pair of flat-6 engines and a brilliant new design both inside and out. While rivals like the Chevrolet Corvette, Audi TTS, and the less expensive Nissan 370Z deliver comparable straight-line performance, none can match the Cayman's inimitable combination of handling prowess, sensory fulfillment and curbside presence.
