 Pros Standard features for the Cayman S coupe such as cruise control, air conditioning, Sport leather seating, power heated mirrors, leather surfaces, and speed sensitive audio control are abundant, though perhaps less than one would expect from a luxury coupe.

 Pros Optional features are also exceptional, though pricey. These include: a Convenience package, an Infotainment package (with or without a Bose audio upgrade), and a Design and Design Sport package. These packages include such features as a navigation system, a 7-speaker audio system, aerodynamic kits, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, and larger wheels and tires. A Sport Chrono package is also available. This package adds PDK, launch control, adjustable driver settings, and a lap timer. There are also several other unique customizations for just about any surface or aspect of the vehicle.

 Pros The 2012 Porsche Cayman S coupe comes with excellent handling and steering capabilities. In fact, these capabilities are some of the best we've ever seen- on any vehicle. The six-speed manual transmission (with Overdrive) and rear-wheel-drive really make for a fantastic driving experience. The S variant has even more control than the fantastic base model, and that's something we can truly appreciate!

 Pros The Cayman S is very powerful. It features a 6-speed manual transmission (with OverDrive) standard or an optional specialty seven-speed. Its 3.4-liter H-6 premium engine produces 320 horsepower and 370 lb.-ft. of torque.

 Pros The Cayman S coupe is fast: It gets from 0-60 mph in about 5.2 seconds.

 Cons Options and packages are very pricey, although they include fantastic accessories. Adding several options/packages could double the price of the vehicle.

 Cons The 2012 Porsche Cayman coupe's cabin leaves us desiring more. It's cramped, awkwardly shaped, and offers little room for storage. The gauges also seem more decorative than functional, and leg room is tighter than many of its competitors.

 Cons Rear visibility could be much better in this coupe.
