2016 Porsche Cayman vs. 2016 BMW 428 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The BMW 428 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Porsche Cayman, making it more convenient to drive.

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 will cost more in transportation costs than the BMW 428.

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 somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Porsche Cayman transmits a bit more power to the wheels than 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 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 428. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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.
