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.

    I'm not a huge Porsche fan, but it's pretty hard not to be excited about an incredibly balanced sub 3K lb sports car with 325 decent sounding horses. Honda built a better Porsche than Porsche, then gave up on it. Now Porsche builds a better NSX. But that whole fancy new interior is ruined by the blanks in the center console that constantly highlight what a cheapskate you are, no matter how much you dump into overpriced Porsche options. There are even blanks in the press photos, for god's sake. How much over $100K would you have to put into options to fill the rack? A $70K car shouldn't look like a stripped out econobox.
