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 Porsche Cayman will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi A5, 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 Porsche Cayman will cost more in transportation costs than the Audi A5.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Porsche Cayman seats a lot fewer people than the Audi A5. The Porsche Cayman has significantly less cargo room than the Audi A5, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
