    I agree but unless its a 911 with turbo then its not worth it, and this price bracket doesnt include them

    A friend of the family had one.

    Rides well and handles like it's on rails. Nice engine note and for the "poor mans 911" it goes like a lil rocket.

    Only thing it didn't have going for it was the front end. The fog lights looked fussy and it's something you cant help but look at.

    The best Porsche. Full Stop.
    A Cayman S is plenty fast for anyones needs imo.
    Handles better than almost any road car on sale.
    High spec cars have everything a 911 has.
    Build quality is exeptional.

    And all these features that make it great when new, make it stand out even more as a second hand buy.
    Try find a mega spec car with ceramic brakes (£5k option!!!).
    Nav is essential for resale value, and many latter cars were supplied with 997 Turbo alloys. And black, white and yellow cars are best for resale.

    All in all top cars imho!

    I worked with a lad who got one to play with for 2-3 days. He bought a new BM outright & a few years later got some offer from them via text. I thought it was BS until he showed me the text, took 2-3 days off work & then came into work in the Porsche.
    Went out during the early hours "testing" it. IIRC he said he got it to 185 & pulled off because he was about to fill his pants.

    Looked sweet though. He loved it.
