2014 Porsche Cayman vs. 2015 BMW 428 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 428, 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 428, 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 428 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Porsche Cayman is a little narrower than the BMW 428, 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 428.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Porsche Cayman doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 428.

Handling
The Porsche Cayman has about the same turning radius as the BMW 428, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Cayman is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 428.

Utility
The Porsche Cayman has less seating than the BMW 428, making the BMW 428 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Porsche Cayman has less cargo capacity than the BMW 428, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Porsche Cayman comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 428.
