The Z4 isn't in the same class with either the Boxster or Cayman in terms of handling and balance. No matter what kind of deals their offering on them (because they aren't selling as well as they would like?), that doesn't move the engine just in front of the rear axle.

Are you serious? Have you driven either the Z4 3.0i or the Z4 M?

the Z4 M is enough for me to give up women.. I like it's handling, styling, the coupe really turns me on, I love BMW and would choose over Porsche anyday.. the M looks alot better in my opinion, besides, too many Porsche boxters..

If you think the cayman is the poor mans 911 then you don't understand the cars enough. Add a LSD, and equivalent tires to the cayman s and it will out handle the similar priced 911 on a any track. The BMW z4m may not have the same handling but it has alot of easy power potential if that is what your looking for.

Boxster. For one it is cheaper. You can always put a hardtop on the Boxster, but you can never open the roof of a Cayman. Let me put it this way: I'd get more enjoyment driving on a winding road with the top down, the wind in my hair, the smell of the trees around me, the sound of the engine from the outside, the open view all around me, than obsessing about how the coupe version is 1.2 seconds faster around some track I'll probably never go to.

Why spend that kind of money on a sports car if you aren't taking it to the track?

to be honest.. I don't know much about Porsche, but as far as I can tell, they seem to be purchased by people who can't afford the Carerra, I am by no means an expert, but that's the way I see it also.. In my opinion, I'd rather by a race ready 911 (with free optional roll-cage and fire extinguisher) over a Cayman, just because the Cayman looks so well, gay..

But don't get infuriated, It's just the opinion of a mere pleb!

Cayman is better (unless of course you really really want a convertible).

You should have stopped there, because you don't know what you're talking about.

I guess so, I should just stick to Italians, I can see where you guys are coming from I guess It does look okay, I owned a GT2 once, it went okay, never going back to Porsche though.

Dude: lesson #1 in internet forum surfing: don't join a new forum and start posting that you own Porsches and Ferrari's...because no one is going to believe you (because you actually don't own them).
