- Runs like a rocket
- Peripheral vision impaired by passenger side roof support
Purchased As Used
This car turns heads every time I take her out. The sleek fastback and metallic silver paint just makes it unique compared to anything else on the road today. I previously owned a 2000 triple black Boxster and this car far outshines it, esp. WRT quality fit and finish, paint quality, and performance. The Boxster always felt a bit cheap to me because its fit and finish was not high quality.
You can feel the Cayman's kick even in 6th gear. Great performance and sound in every gear. The on-board computer is a bit limited, but stills gives MPG and miles to empty. I find myself seeing how I can maximize MPG by going to neutral and coasting for miles downhill (I live in CO where there are lots of big hills). The car is so aerodynamic that it just coasts along without losing speed. Everything fits neatly together and looks handsome in its place. Only thing it doesn't have is an ipod jack on the Bose surround sound. Over the shoulder viewing is a bit limited due to the positioning of the passenger side roof support, but big clear racing style mirrors provide a good alternative cross-check prior to changing lanes. If I had to do it all over again, I'd get the same car....read morehide

- Exceptional integration of steering, brakes, and power plant- BEST HANDLING
- high cost of 'add-on' options that should be incl. (floor mats), in base price or priced less

Overall, and price dependent, this is the best Porsche that i've owned. Past cars incl.: 968, (2) Boxster S, (2) 996, (1) 996 GT3, (2) Cayenne Turbos, and (2) 997 S'.
Handling: exceeds the Boxster S given it's rigidity,
Engine: 320 HP is plenty powerful for the Washington DC traffic snarl. The power band is broad and the sound is invigorating w/ a stock exhaust. I've felt it necessary to add Tubi exhausts and Eibach springs and PSS9 coil overs. Stock was not 'involving' enough on the 2006 997 S. The 2010 Cayman S is fine 'as is' - both suspension and exhaust.
Comfort: stock seats are terrific!! previous 997 S had sport adaptive seats which were outstanding, however not for an extra $4k. Significant improvement w/ electronics- blue tooth, TMS, etc. Ride around town and highway is terrific! One would think that you'd need to sacrifice handling for comfort- not the case w/ the 2010 Cayman S.
Performance- outstanding integration of all 'key' components! Best handling car that I've owned. Better than my 2005 Lotus Elise. Offers more power out of the turns, as well as power steering.
Reliability- JD Powers has ranked Porsche #1, (3) of the past (4) years. I've never had any major issues, and only 1-2 minor issues over my (15) years of (11) Porsche's ownership. It is all true what you read about Porsche's exceptional engineering.
I highly recommend the Cayman S!!...read morehide
