I think the Cayman/Boxster range are great cars. ! would be happy with them. Unless I lived in snow, then I would go with Audi's new Allroad, or a gently used one. The Allroad was one of the best snow cars ever, plus a great car anytime. I had a VW R32 which I used to drive to ski. 4 snows and it was like a snowmobile. 4 summer tires and it was like driving on rails. Great bang for the buck, esp the original with the stick.
