We liked the Boxster S when we briefly drove it during a stage-managed event designed to show off its best characteristics. The Cayman should be even better.
The base Cayman uses the venerable 2.7L flat-six, good for 275 horsepower, while the Cayman S gets a 325 horsepower 3.4L unit. With the PDK, Sport Chrono package and god knows whatever else, the Cayman S is capable of a 4.4 second 0-60 time. Considering that the new 911 has evolved into some sort of Grand Touring car with an engine in the back, this might be your best bet at a sporting P-Car.
