Could be interesting, but I'd say just go for the 911 if you can afford it...I mean I'm sure that Porsche didn't slap together a piece of junk, but the 911 has been around for how long? I'd say they probably have the bugs worked out of the 911. Also, the 911 has amazing resale value.
But then again, there I go being a hypocrite...I've got a Cayenne that's fantastic
Well my lease is comming to an end in December. Im thinking of buying a new Porsche Cayman S. Dose anyone have any other suggestions? Or thoughts on the Cayman?
Don't think I would buy a first year car, even from Porsche and even if based on the existing/revised Boxster. It will be very fast and should handle well, but too many little details to get overlooked. Even the original Boxster was upgraded 2-3 years after intro with complaints about shoddy materials and wormanship.
I would consider a lease, if the residual is strong. If it turns out to be a good car, then buy it out, if not, just hand them the keys and walk away. Look at the two year residual, the new M5 is virtually the same price for a 2 or 3 year lease because of the big drop in residual between years 2 and 3.
The cayman is the boxster coupe, so to speak, not an suv.
Looks like a fun car, two seats would never work for my life at this point in time, but it looks like fun. I'd bet it will be a blast to drive too. If you don't need a back seat, go for it.
Sorry, I misread this for the Cayenne when I read the post (very late last night).
Yes, of course I am aware of the Cayman, my brother-in-law is visiting me from Europe and he had atttended an autoshow and showed me a couple of pics on his phone of the Cayman S. There were some recent articles in Autoweek and Car and Driver, certainly looks like a fun car.
I agree with Le3, I think the same amount of money is better spent on a well kept used TT.
BTW, today there was an article on the new Z4 M-coupe, which will be released in a hardtop form as well (albeit a bit later than the convertible), perhaps something else to consider, depending on your lease expiration date.
