2014 Porsche Cayman vs. 2014 BMW 328 Gran Turismo Review

Comparison Review


Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche Cayman as you will with the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, 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). The Porsche Cayman will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, 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 and the BMW 328 Gran Turismo have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Porsche Cayman is a little narrower than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Porsche Cayman, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 328 Gran Turismo.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Porsche Cayman doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 328 Gran Turismo.

Handling
The Porsche Cayman has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Cayman is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Porsche Cayman seats a lot fewer people than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo. The Porsche Cayman has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Porsche Cayman comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 328 Gran Turismo.
