I own(ed) faster straight line cars but saw so many good reviews in so many places I figured WTH. I took a Cayman for a test drive not expecting to be too impressed. They did not have an S model on the lot so I wheeled around a base model. Halfway though the test drive I looked at the salesman and asked, "this is the SLOW version of this car?!?!" You feel so planted and so confident... it is all I can do to wait to own one. But, I will have one. If you are on the fence, "go drive one" is my advice.
