Pros

Try as they may, no front-engine sports car can match the neutral handling and perfect balance offered by a mid-engine coupe. In Porsche’s 2015 Cayman coupe, the combination of handling, style, power and price make it a rarity worthy of consideration.

Cons

If you’re looking to keep your final cost relatively close to the starting MSRP, the 2015 Porsche Cayman’s lengthy list of options will likely make that goal nearly impossible. Those who regularly have to deal with snow may find the all-wheel-drive traction of an Audi TT a better option.

What's New For 2015

Fresh from its remake last year, the Porsche Cayman sports coupe rolls into 2015 with a new, high-performance GTS model. The 2015 Cayman GTS includes a more powerful engine, 20-inch Carrera S wheels, sport seats and soft Alcantara wraps for the steering wheel, seats inserts and headliner.

Used 2015 Porsche Cayman Expert Review

While many assume the pricey 911 is Porsche’s most exhilarating sports car, a spin in the 2015 Cayman coupe might just convince them otherwise. Designed to mimic the weight balance of the world’s most sophisticated racecars, this mid-engine coupe is an enthusiast driver’s dream come true. While competitors such as the Chevrolet Corvette, Audi TT and even the Nissan 370Z all offer similar or better straight-line performance, none can match the Cayman’s ability to wed driver and car into a single symbiotic being. The Cayman offers a choice of three flat-6 boxer engines and a long list of advanced features, including a Burmester audio system and adaptive cruise control. Dynamic curbside appeal comes standard.

Driving the Used 2015 Porsche Cayman

Porsche’s Cayman coupe for 2015 might just be the most user-friendly sports car the company has ever built. Tuned to please hard-core enthusiasts, the Cayman’s mechanicals answer driver input with surprisingly little fuss. The electrically assisted power steering is pleasantly predictable, communicative and responsive, while the Cayman’s braking is immediate without feeling overly sensitive or vague. The stiff chassis and taut suspension found in both the Cayman S and GTS are perfectly suited for a day at the track, but can become tiresome in routine day-to-day driving. We found leaving the Active Suspension Management setting in the “Normal” mode mitigated the most unpleasant undulations without detracting from the Cayman’s overall driving enjoyment. When placed in the Sport Plus setting, the Cayman’s rev-matching manual gearbox automatically performs what only heel-and-toe shifting once could, that being the matching of engine rpm to wheel speed during downshifts for smoother clutch re-engagements.

Favorite Features

PDK TRANSMISSION
For the most efficient gear changes (ultimately leading to the quicker acceleration), there is no beating the Cayman’s dual-clutch PDK automatic transmission. The 7-speed PDK’s dual personality makes it ideal for easing through bumper-to-bumper traffic, then returning manual control to the driver when the open road beckons.

PORSCHE TORQUE VECTORING (PTV)
The 2015 Porsche Cayman’s PTV system tames understeer by gently applying brake force to the inside rear wheel. The system takes into account vehicle speed, steering angle and throttle position to determine exactly the right amount of force needed to the keep the car in line.

Used 2015 Porsche Cayman Interior

The mid-engine 2015 Porsche Cayman coupe’s cabin is sleek and upscale. In true Porsche tradition, the sophisticated cockpit-style layout features a driver-focused dashboard and a myriad of easily accessible controls. Gone is the claustrophobic feel of past Porsche cabin designs, replaced instead with ample headroom and a surprising amount of legroom for a segment not known for it. Ergonomics are outstanding, though outward visibility is quite limited due to the Cayman’s high beltline and bulky C-pillar. The standard seats are supremely comfortable and supportive, and while the available sport seats further up the performance ante, we deem them non-essential.

Used 2015 Porsche Cayman Exterior

Sharing most design cues with its Boxster kin, the Cayman demonstrates an assertive look, underscored by edgier lines, sloping headlights, and prominent side scallops. The body is 44-percent aluminum, which makes the Porsche Cayman for 2015 one of the lightest cars in its class. A long wheelbase and wide track afford a sizable boost in high-speed stability. In terms of storage, the luggage area within the rear hatch coupled with a front trunk combine to deliver a commendable 15 cubic feet of cargo space, comparable to most mid-size sedans.

Used 2015 Porsche Cayman Standard Features

The 2015 Cayman by Porsche is available in base, high-performance Cayman S and supercar-like GTS trim levels. Standard features on the base model include 18-inch wheels, water-repellant front windows, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a 4-speaker audio system with a 7-inch LCD touch screen. Cayman S models include a wider track for improved lateral grip, 19-inch wheels, and low/high beam xenon headlights that emit up to three times more light than conventional halogen systems. When it comes to safety, all Cayman models include eight airbags, a wide range of electronic stability aids, and complimentary roadside assistance for the duration of the limited warranty.

Used 2015 Porsche Cayman Options

The 2015 Cayman offers a lengthy list of upgrades along with numerous bespoke options that will wrap just about any interior surface in leather, carbon fiber, Alcantara (synthetic suede), aluminum, or matching exterior paint. Unlike some of its more raucous rivals, the Cayman’s unobtrusive exhaust note makes the premium 12-speaker Burmester sound system a worthy add-on. Lastly, if you believe it’s necessary to outfit your next sports cars with pricey traction-enhancing gizmos, know that most drivers will run out of nerve long before the Cayman runs out of grip.

Used 2015 Porsche Cayman Engine

The 2015 Porsche Cayman offers a trio of mid-mounted flat-6 “boxer” engines. The base 2.7-liter engine is good for 275 horsepower, while the more powerful 3.4-liter mill of the Cayman S churns out a very respectable 325 horsepower. The GTS delivers 340 horsepower. All three Cayman variants direct power to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission or an available 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

2.7-liter flat-6 (Cayman)
275 horsepower @ 7,400 rpm
213 lb-ft of torque @ 4,500-6,500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/30 mpg (manual), 22/32 mpg (PDK automatic)

3.4-liter flat-6 (Cayman S)
325 horsepower @ 7,400 rpm
273 lb-ft of torque @ 4,500-5,800 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/28 mpg (manual), 21/30 mpg (PDK automatic)

3.4-liter flat-6 (Cayman GTS)
340 horsepower @ 7,400 rpm
280 lb-ft of torque @ 4,500-5,800 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/26 mpg (manual), 22/31 mpg (PDK automatic)

How Much Does the Used 2015 Porsche Cayman Cost?

In base form, the 2015 Porsche Cayman mid-engine coupe opens at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) right around $53,600. The Cayman S starts just under $65,000, while the range-topping GTS starts just over $72,000. Adding the PDK automatic transmission will set you back an additional $3,200. An absent-minded approach to checking options boxes can easily skyrocket the sticker price into the $100,000 range. For comparison, the Mercedes-Benz SLK 350 commands a $3,000 premium over a base Cayman, while the Audi TTS and Chevrolet Corvette start closer to $50,000. To see what others in your area are paying for the 2014 Cayman, take a look at KBB.com’s Fair Purchase Price at the bottom of this page. Down the road, the Porsche Cayman is expected to retain some of the highest residual values in the segment, topping the Audi TTS and RS, Mercedes-Benz SLK 350, Nissan 370Z, and Chevrolet Corvette.

2017 Porsche 718 Cayman

"2017 Cayman 718"

Corvette priced porsche, great handling
Options are very expensivea and build quality
I picked mine up with 300 miles on it from a Porsche dealer in 2017. I was surprised how unrefined the engine harmonics were, because at certain RPMs the car would resonate and rattle. The fit and finish were hit and miss and definitely not the quality you'd expect for a car with a average selling price in the mid $60k. I ended up selling it after putting 15,000 miles on it. The other problem with the Cayman is that so many cars are better at the same price with better performance and/or build quality.

"2018 718 GTS"

Great car handles superb, solid, fun to drive
60 to nearly 90k depends on options.
First Porsche was a base 718 and then upgraded to a GTS. Both cars handle amazing. Mid engine perfect balance and handling. I have taken several extended trips in this car and it is very comfortable. Despite the criticism on the sound i believe it sounds great "PSE"..especially with engine so close to you, Steering is precise and PASM is definitely a plus...Gts is a definite upgrade with 2.5 L@ 365 h.p , and all the GTS options....however found the base 2.0 at 300 h.p. to be a great car also. I believe Porsche builds a quality car and is a pleasure to drive. I find myself making excuses to take a drive, and taking the long way home frequently. I know several people that daily drive their Caymans with no issues. I drive my car on weekends and occasional weekdays due to work environment.Read less

"Awesome sports car! "There is no substitute!""

Handling, engine, gearbox, ride, build quality
Not cheap, but "There is no substitute!"
Have wanted a Porsche for years. Saw my first car race when I was 16. 1970 Watkins Glen Manufacturer's 6 Hours. Winner: Gulf Porsche 917. They've always been high priced compared to other cars, so always put off buying one. They got me when announcing that the Cayman was going to a 4 cylinder turbo. Pulled the plug and got a guard's red Cayman S manual. Did European delivery and had a blast in Germany, Austria, and Italy (Tuscany) for two weeks. The car is perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. Superb handling, lovely engine power and sound. I just love driving it out in the country early on sunny mornings in the absence of traffic. Have traveled from Maryland to Florida, and also to Asheville NC in total comfort. My favorite car purchase ever, and will likely keep it until old age and/or infirmity preclude my using it.Read less
