Comparison Review

Convenience
The Porsche Cayman requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M235, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW M235 and the Porsche Cayman have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M235 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Cayman.
