2006 Porsche Cayman Petrol Manual Coupe by CaymanMan • 23rd March 2023
What can I say, the Porsche Cayman is as good as everyone says. So much usable power, it's quick but not scary quick, you can push it to it's limits, throw it around a corner and still come out the other end with a big grin on your face.
The interior quality is what you would expect from a premium german brand, lots of leather and everything has a lovely solid feeling to it. The exterior still turns heads, this era of 987/997 porsche's are some of the prettiest in my opinion, it's one you'll leave in a car park and always turn for a second look.
The manual gear shift is satisfying, a nice good clunk, the naturally aspirated engine has lots of grunt in the low down rev ranges but really comes into its own at around 7000rpm. A comfortable cruiser along the motorway and a nimble grin factory along the B roads. You really can't have more fun for the money.
