"No trouble save a new battery, tires and replacing the tire pressure sensors. The car is gorgeous and gets stares and compliments though it is almost 7 yrs old. It has been easy to maintain its like new look."

"Bought my 2008 Cayman 2.7 in 2010. After 3 years, it has been reasonably reliable. My biggest scare was a hydraulic leak from the steering rack. Although the warranty had recently expired, the dealer did their best to take care of my out-of-pocket cost. Small problems pop up here and there, and I got most of them eliminated while under warranty. Porsche's selling point is a semi-exotic car with not-quite-stratospheric upkeep costs. The prospective buyer must accept that brakes will cost over $2000, tires will be $1000+ every other year at tire shops and closer to $2000 at the dealer, annual service frequently tops $500, etc. But for a car nut, the fun to be had is more than worth the price. Post-2009 cars have a reworked suspension that rides much better. Despite that, my 2008 rides tolerably for a sports car (Honda S2000s loosen my fillings). It's got ample headroom and the seats are well designed. The driving position is amazing, and the somewhat claustrophobic cabin will grow on you. Ample luggage space (> Boxster) is just a bonus. But the best part of the Cayman is, what non-Italian sports car can come close to looking and sounding this good? (Disclaimer: I added the Sport Exhaust back onto my car)"

"I own a 2007 base w/ 17" wheels, 53,000 miles. No maintenance issues at all, base has plenty of power for everyday driving, only wish for more at a) the track, b) passing at higher speeds on 2 lane roads. Strong case for the base model - 1) more power than you'll ever need except for above 2) 17" tires give a great ride, good performance and are inexpensive to replace 3) fuel economy = to Porsche claims 3) lower investment. Handling has to be experienced to be believed, seems like amusement park ride, have pushed hard and am nowhere near limits, don't really know where they are... Either model excpetionally practical, 2 sets golf clubs in back, 2 o-night cases up front, no problem. Useful to remember that base model 100 lbs lighter than S so horsepower difference not as much as you might think. Exceptional driving and ownership experience for the $$."

"Where should I start? Beautiful, get a lot of looks whether it's moving or sitting still. But the best part is, it drives better than it looks. Love the way it handles, like a fighter jet but with better gas mileage. Now I know why Porsche has such great reputation for racing."

"This car handles great. Bought this car new after test driving a used Carrera which would've cost more. No comparison. The Cayman feels like it's hugging the road. Have taken it on a few road trips, plenty of room with two storage areas, and around 30mpg highway. Only downside - you'll need to find a reasonably priced mechanic you trust as you'll want to keep maintenance up and dealer care is expensive. Had one minor problem covered by warranty, other than that only required maintenance. Great looking car. Have received numerous compliments. My favorite car to date."
