The Porsche Cayman requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Nissan GT-R, making it more convenient to drive.
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 Nissan GT-R 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. The Nissan GT-R will cost more in transportation costs than the Porsche Cayman.
Since the Nissan GT-R 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 Nissan GT-R, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Cayman.
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan GT-R does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Cayman.
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan GT-R 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.
The Nissan GT-R offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Cayman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Nissan GT-R has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Cayman, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
The basic warranty of the Nissan GT-R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche Cayman.
