The Porsche 718 Cayman requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M2, 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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW M2 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Since the BMW M2 is much wider than the Porsche 718 Cayman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW M2, which is slightly longer than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW M2 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche 718 Cayman.
