2016 BMW M6 vs. 2016 Porsche Cayman Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Porsche Cayman requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M6, 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). The BMW M6 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Porsche Cayman, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW M6 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Cayman.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M6 is much wider than the Porsche Cayman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW M6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Cayman.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M6 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Cayman.

Handling
The BMW M6 has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Cayman, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M6 has a much more powerful engine than the Porsche Cayman. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW M6 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Cayman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW M6 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Porsche Cayman.

Warranty
The BMW M6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Cayman.
