2014 Nissan 370Z vs. 2014 Porsche Cayman Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan 370Z as you will with the Porsche Cayman, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Based on MSRP, the Nissan 370Z is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche Cayman. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan 370Z carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Cayman.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan 370Z is much wider than the Porsche Cayman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Nissan 370Z is slightly shorter than the Porsche Cayman, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Nissan 370Z transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche Cayman.

Handling
The Nissan 370Z has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Porsche Cayman, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan 370Z is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Cayman.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan 370Z and the Porsche Cayman. The Nissan 370Z has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Cayman, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan 370Z is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche Cayman.
