How many of you seriously looked at the Cayman or Cayman S before pulling the trigger on your Elise or Elise SC? The Cayman or Cayman S is on my shortlist, especially a CPO.

Yes, I have driven the Elise and the Cayman S, and I can see beauty in both.

We have both. An Exige and a Cayman 'S'.
Love the power and day to day use of the Cayman, but the driving experience is better for me in the Exige. Totally depends on what you want to use it for.

I looked at both the Cayman S and the Elise. Cayman felt underpowered even compared to my 2000 BMW M Roadster. I went with the Elise and never looked back.

+1 I couldn't make up my mind so I got both the Elise and the Cayman S. Different cars for different purposes.

Anything new is overpriced. Theres a blue one on cars.com for 38k. Also test after test has proved the Boxster is a better performing car than the Z4 M and the Cayman is a better performing hard top boxster. so Im not sure where you heard that from...

Looked at both - Cayman S was a great driving car with a terrific interior. I thought I would have been bored fairly quickly with the base Cayman. I went with an Elise knowing that I will get a more refined car further down the road. G

Cayman = overpriced. You can get SO much more for your buck. Hell, a 2007 Z4M Coupe for 40K new outperforms it any day.


Where is there a Z4 M coupe for $40k? :rolleyes:



And it does not outperform the Cayman S :shrug:




Besides, you can't beat the 12 cubic feet of trunk space in the Cayman :p




A C6 Corvette outperforms all the cars in question for less money. I guess they're all over-priced.
