Even among the range of legendary Porsche models, we find it difficult to recall a car that feels so utterly terrific under virtually all dynamic conditions. A very rigid body structure and renowned capabilities in suspension tuning endow the Cayman with the ability to deal with the most demanding roads – or racetracks – with remarkably impeccable poise and control.

"Upgrading from my 2005 RX8 & not wanting a convertible, i searched all exceptional sports car replacements that were also affordable. I was shocked to discover that a used 2009 base Porsche Cayman was within my reach. On average, $10k less then the S class Caymans w/only 40 less HSP. Debuting in 2006, the 2nd generation 09 Caymans received significant upgrades inside & out. Performance, handling, horsepower, styling, prestige & affordability exceeded all my expectations. My RX8's value was $12.5 w/31k miles. The base Cayman was $36k w/26k. Subtract that trade-in value & you'll see why i'm smiling along PCH unable to drive 55! Go test drive your Cayman today, you won't be disappointed!"
