Which used Porsche Cayman coupe should I buy?
For the best possible Cayman driving experience, a purist would recommend trying to find a manual car, but the PDK automatic is nonetheless a truly impressive thing. So equipped, the car is actually a fraction quicker and more economical than the equivalent manual model, and it’s easier to punt around town as well as down a twisty road. Whether you should seek out the 2.7 or 3.4 engine is a matter worth some debate because both are fantastic. The 2.7 will cost a little less to run, perhaps, and for that reason it would get our nod, but we wouldn’t blame you in the slightest if you fell for the charms of the 3.4.
Porsche is notoriously stingy with standard kit, so look out for a car that was ordered with options like Porsche Communication Management for sat-nav and Bluetooth phone connectivity; Adaptive Cruise Control with Porsche Active Safety for automatic emergency braking, and Porsche Active Suspension Management if you'd like an adaptive suspension system that gives a better ride on broken road surfaces.
