No, I didn't abandon my family to be with the Porsche Cayman S, but I was extremely tempted, taking several detours on the trip home to my tiny baby and my understanding wife. Nothing demands a joy ride like a Porsche. I know, I know: the 911 is iconically divine. But for my money, I'd rather own a Boxster or a Cayman than a tail-heavy and much more expensive 911. More specifically, I'd probably pick a Boxster S because of its opening roof and smaller price. Yet every time I see a gorgeous Cayman--or am exposed to the lusciously rumbly sound track filling its cabin--I become torn. I suppose it's very fortunate, then, that I'm not in the market for one of these cars. Sigh.

When it comes time to sign out a car for the weekend, I usually eschew two-seaters in favor of something with a trunk, because my husband and I are usually hauling our golf clubs and/or our dog somewhere. There are few cars that make me want to make an exception to this rule, but the Cayman is one of them. I was more than happy to forgo cargo capacity for the chance to drive the Cayman for the weekend. There's just something about this car: it's got a great engine, sounds great, and is a blast to drive. Plus, it just seems to fit me to a tee.

I work a mere ten minutes from my apartment, but the commute home took two and a half hours in the Cayman.

Give me a Cayman any day over its much more common and slightly less satisfying sibling, the Boxster roadster. In terms of dynamics, of course, the Cayman's fixed roof gives the car considerably more structural rigidity, which translates to that much better chassis responsiveness. In terms of aesthetics, the Cayman's pure form is, arguably, more pleasing to the eye than the Boxster. And in terms of specialness, the still-rare Cayman offers a lot of exclusivity for the buck. In that sense, the Cayman reminds me of the early-2000s BMW M Coupe, another high-performance, fixed-roof sibling to a much more common ragtop, the Z3 roadster. Both the M Coupe and the Cayman are the type of vehicle that I could see myself buying as a vintage car in 25 or 30 years. Of course, I'd like a Cayman right now, as well.
