It’s a common question for any Porsche owner: do you daily drive that thing? Well, for a few blissful months after I bought my 987 Cayman my answer was yes. And it was a truly fantastic daily driver during that time, even though it was March in Chicago. (As it turns out, a Cayman in the snow can actually be quite fun – as long as you have the right tires!).
What makes a 10-year old Porsche Cayman such a good daily driver?
In my video I cover the 4 main benefits as well as some of the drawbacks. The main benefits I go over are:
1. Performance in high traffic environments:
The Cayman’s size and power combination are great for zipping around in urban traffic and passing slower cars on the highway.
2. Comfort and ride quality:
When you’ve a long-haul drive every day, the Cayman’s seats and suspension will keep your back from aching.
3. Convenience features:
The Cayman has a place to put your smartphone, hang your dry cleaning, and keep your coffee readily available.
4. Fuel economy:
How often should you expect to fill up?
What else to Expect
The video below covers all these plus I explore the drawbacks as well as some other perks and quirks of daily driving an older Porsche Cayman!
