I want to get a new Porsche. I'm looking at either the Boxster or the Cayman


Which one is best?
>>
Cayman because hard top
>>
>>14281223
Well, do you want a roof or not?
>>
The Viper
>>
>>14281223
Miata with a supercharger or an LS swap
>>
>>14281240
>>14281241
The type of top doesn't matter to me
>>14281248
Memes
>>14281251
I dont want a Miata I want a Porsche
>>
>>14281259
In that case, Cayman because slightly more power.
>>
>>14281263
Aren't the new ones basically the same now?

Might go with the boxster, because convertible

My configuration

>>14281356
>tan interior
>>
>>14281355
Nah, the Cayman has like 10hp and 10nm more, for both S and non-S versions.
>>
>>14281381
So it's fucking nothing
>>
>>14281374
It's alright
>>
>>14281384
Basically.
But then there's also that glorious GT4...
>>
>>14281400
Boxster Spyder is the equivalent to the Cayman GT4
>>
>>14281385
Tan on black is good, tan on tan is bad. Reconsider your life.

There's an option for half/half

Looks nice

>>14281385
Don't get tan in Porsche because they make the dash also tan, and it reflects on the windshield. Go to a Porsche dealership and look at all the tan cars that are outside, look through the windshield. Maybe it isn't annoying to you, but, it would stop me from ever getting a tan interior.

I drove a friends Panamera that had tan and it was terrible.

>>14281223
I'd look into a used 911 S personally, they hold their value better. I'd avoid a new Boxster, as those tank in value - also those are for chicks. Cayman is somewhere in the middle.
>>
I used to be all for the Cayman because Ma hardtop and rigidity but really the Boxster will be more emotional and cool when you have the roof down. The sound they make is fucking sex and getting to hear that with the roof down would be worth the slight loss of power and rigidity.
Just get a manual
>>
>>14281403
Didn't know that until I looked it up.
It even outputs the same torque (but still 10hp less), but that should be easily resolved with a tune. The same engine puts out 420hp in the 911 Carrera GTS, after all.

So, it comes down to this once again: roof or no roof?
>>
>>14281421
Do this rather than full tan, as per: >>14281428

Get it with the contrast stitch. I think the top is called espresso or something, it's a dark brown.
>>
>>14281421
That's a lot better
>>
>>14281428
>women
>driving Boxsters

It's always old white guys
>>
>>14281428

While it's not perfect, polarized sunglasses can help cut down on dash reflection glare.
>>
>>14281444
Yes, but I'd rather not have to wear sunglasses in order to stop my dashboard from reflecting all over the windshield. It might just bother me more than others though, I find it really annoying.
>>
>>14281428
>also those are for chicks. Cayman is somewhere in the middle.
>I fell for Porsche marketing

I'm not a fan of convertibles but they're both excellent, affordable driver's cars. Only pseudo-masculine dickwads with insecurity issues obsess about a car being girly [which the Cayman definitely isn't] anyway
>>
>>14281455
boxster owners are worse than miata owners defending their barbie cars
>>
>>14281455
Depreciation wise, per year cost, the Boxsters just take such a hit. That was my main comment. As far as chick cars, I think all convertibles are not just Boxsters. 911 S's, new, end up costing you like 10k per year over 4 years (obviously the initial hit being the first year) and I think that's pretty reasonable.
>>
I see you can't afford the 911
>>
>boxster

>spending that much on a miata
>>
>>14281524
If OP can afford a new Boxster, he can easily afford a used 997
>>
>>14281465
>LOL IC ALLED IT GAY AND GIRLY HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH

Maybe if you weren't such a manchild who parrots everything /o/ tells you you'd actually learn something about cars.

>butthurt miata owner detected

How good/bad are used Caymans? They cost around 16k eurosheckels and I can get a decent E46 M3 or 335i for the price as well.
>>
Cayman
Solely for the GT4. 9/11 car bretty gud
>>
>>14281728
As with any car high end car, you have to make sure it's in good condition. They can easily be daily driven though

The Boxster Spyder exists
>>
>>14282277
Basically this. They're actually surprisingly viable DDs because 2 trunks. The only time you'll run into problems is when you need more than 2 seats.

Always drive with your upper dash with a darker color... its more natural and less of a distraction.

buy a 997 carrera S dumb dumb
>>
>>14281728
bretty gud, i think 987s have bore scoring issues shared with 997.1s but it's not as common on smaller motors.
plus they'll hold their value better than either of the BMs
>>
Get a 911 instead, OP.
>>
>>14282285
The Spyder is cool, but it's nowhere near as hardcore as the GT4.

That said, good luck getting a GT4, especially in the spec you want, and if OP could afford a GT4 he could afford a mid-spec 911.

Anyway, my choice would be the Cayman. I'm a big fan of coupes and don't really like 'verts, and the hard top means less fuckery if you want to take it to the track.

I'd personally buy a used 997S, though.

Driving a GT4 daily would be quite painful.

holy shit the boxster spyder is gorgeous

too bad its not called 550 spyder
>>
>>14284531
The 911 has too many gears, too many seats and the engine in the wrong place. It's the faster car but the Cayman is easily the better driver's car
>>
I'd go with the Cayman because I don't like convertibles.
They handle almost the same tho.

I've only driven a 2002 Boxster S than everyone here claims is a slow terrible shit car but tbqh it was a lot of fun, plenty fast, handled on rails, and sounded amazing.
>>
>>14281223
You can't go wrong with either one, they're the same car
It's more of a personal preference, but both are fun and daily drivable

>>14284668
I have the slow as shit 2.5l non-S and even that is a load of fun. Sure it's as slow as an FRS, but it's a mid engine roadster that isn't a tiny as fuck short wheelbase MR2

Considering I bought it when I was 19, I don't regret it in the slightest. If I ever want to make it fast I can always drop a 911 engine in it
>>
>>14281223
Fellow guy buying a porsche here. Here are the specs you need:

>Cayman S

>Sports Exhaust (it's an extra 3K but with it)

>cameras

>don't get tan interior, it hurts your eyes after while. Check out the black. It's more gray than anything
>>
>>14284660
>>14284654
>>14284531
The Cayman S has the exact same engine as the 911. That's why they're downgrading to a turbo 4 cylinder for 2017
>>
>>14284861
Actually it's the Cayman GT4 that has the same engine as the 911 Carrera S
>>
>>14283703
The value for the E46 M3 seems to be going up actually.. and I`ve got a bad feeling that the Cayman is going to depreciate even more being a newer car

What's the difference between the boxster, boxster black Edition, boxster S and boxster Spyder?
>>
>>14285966
Not him, but the standard Boxster is the base model, the Black Edition seems like an all-black version like the name implies (possibly limited, don't really know), Boxster S has a bigger, more powerful engine, different chassis and a little spoiler as well as some more stuff standard, and the Spyder is basically a convertible GT4.

>>14285943
Yes, but trust me...You don't want attention from the sort of females that it attracts.

>>14285960
The PDK is faster. Plus where I live has a lot of traffic.
>>14285966
Boxster has a 2.7 engine and feels quite slow.
The Boxster S is the one I have it's got a 3.4 engine and feels notably quicker with 310HP. However, it doesn't feel frighteningly fast.
I don't know a whole lot about the black edition sorry.

>>14286038
Go to a dealership and sit in one outside on a sunny day with a tan dash. You'll immediately see if it bothers you.

It bothers me, that's all I can tell you. You can either get a two tone if you want tan, or get black (which is grayish black).
