If you’re looking for a gift that will really impress someone this holiday season, may we suggest a new Porsche Cayman? With prices starting from a reasonable $53,550 (including the required $950 destination charge, but sans options), the Cayman could be the most desirable-but-attainable car on the planet.
Base models come with a 2.7-liter flat-six engine good for 275 horsepower, which can get the coupe from 0 – 60 mph in as little as 5.1 seconds. If you need faster-acting relief, the Boxster S (priced from $64,750, including destination charge) gives you a 3.4-liter flat-six, rated at 325 horsepower and capable of 0 – 60 mph times of 4.6 seconds when properly equipped.
As with any Porsche model, the list of packages, options and accessories is a long one, which is what gives the Cayman configurator its entertainment value. While you waiting for that Christmas bonus or lottery-winning check to come in, you can build the exact Cayman you want in the comfort of your own home.
We’d advise you to choose your options carefully, though. Check off too many boxes, and the price of a Cayman S can easily break the $100,000 mark, which puts it into 911 Carrera S territory.
