Expert Quotes:

But hit a ripple or undulation at full tilt, and the car gets twitchy
Automobile Magazine

While the Porsche options list means you can, in effect, custom-tailor your car (want carbon fiber doorsills illuminated with your favorite "Game of Thrones" house sigil?), a more sensibly equipped Cayman would be a more attractive proposition.
Motor Trend

Of course, the Cayman S can autonomously bring itself to a stop if you check the box for its adaptive cruise control system.

the interior coddles occupants more with comfortable seats, soft leathers wrapping the majority of surfaces and a great-sounding optional sound system
Auto Week

Regardless of whether or not you opt for the black-art stereo, odds are you'll appreciate the extra interior room over the second-gen Cayman.
Autoblog

Every 2014 Porsche Cayman comes with a tremendous amount of standard equipment, but there's a huge array of a la carte options available, as well. One caveat for the Cayman buyer, as with nearly any Porsche: beware the price creep that comes with ticking lots of cool feature boxes.

The base Cayman and Cayman S include a wealth of convenience and luxury items: rain-sensing wipers; electric-adjust heated exterior mirrors; ambient footwell lighting; cruise control; two-way adjustable sport seats; 4.6-inch TFT instrument cluster display; 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment control; Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity; and more.

Optional extras include an upgraded audio system; Bose surround sound; six-disc CD/DVD changer; ventilated seats; heated seats; heated steering wheel; adaptive cruise control; 14-way adjustable memory sport seats; a fire extinguisher; dual-zone automatic climate control; Burmester sound; and much more.

In addition to the numerous comfort and convenience features, the Cayman also offers the Sport Chrono package, a full-fledged performance kit that upgrades the entire car in one way or another, from throttle and transmission response to suspension tuning and more. A range of settings are selectable through a console-mounted set of buttons, offering Sport and Sport Plus modes in addition to normal cruising mode.

The Sport Chrono package is maximized when matched with the PDK transmission, which allows the computer to realize several features not possible with the manual transmission, including Launch Control, a "motorsport-derived gearshift strategy," and more. The Sport Chrono also allows the car to store and report lap times and other performance metrics for later analysis.

Conclusion

The 2014 Porsche Cayman offers ample standard equipment, plus enough optional extras to nearly double the price.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
