Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M4 as you will with the Porsche 718 Cayman, 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). Whether you pick the BMW M4 or the Porsche 718 Cayman, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 M4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M4 is much wider than the Porsche 718 Cayman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW M4, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Handling
The BMW M4 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Porsche 718 Cayman, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M4 is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW M4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Utility
The BMW M4 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche 718 Cayman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW M4 has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche 718 Cayman, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The BMW M4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 718 Cayman.
