If I buy it won’t people look down on me for not purchasing a 911?
Anybody who looks down on you for buying a Cayman over a 911 has mouldy tapioca sloshing around in their head. Yes, back in the early noughties it may have been something of a compromise, but in this day and age the Cayman is as good, and in some instances even better, than its more established sibling.
And here in GTS guise it’s something of a bargain: an all-rounder that’s as at home around the racetrack as it is drudging its way through city traffic. Indeed, nothing in this price range really comes close to matching its almost annoyingly effortless merging of performance, poise and prestige. Sterling job, Porsche, sterling job.
