Porsche claims there is no substitute, but considering the price and performance of the Cayman when going head to head with the 370Z, an extra $20,000 in your pocket is a pretty good substitute.
Even if you are made of money, a compelling argument can be made for the Nissan, and people with money to burn don’t like to waste it. The 2015 Cayman starts at $52,000, before adding any of the pricey options Porsche is famous for. To put that into perspective, you can buy a 2015 370Z, plus a Nissan Juke with 5 passenger practicality for the price of the Porsche. Just adding the optional automatic transmission to the Cayman increases the price to $55,800, which is almost $25,000 more than an automatic equipped 370Z.
With its huge price premium, you would expect the Cayman to beat the 370Z in every performance test you could measure, but it doesn’t. Power wise, the base 370Z has 57 more horsepower and NISMO models have 75 more than the Cayman, more lb-ft or torque too. The Cayman will go from 0-60mph in just 5.8 seconds, but that is still slower than the 370Z by half a second. They both stop from 60 mph in similar distances too, and can pull .9g on a skid pad.
If you compare the base model 370Z you will find you get several features Porsche wants to charge extra for, like HID headlights, proximity key and automatic climate control. But since the top of the line 370Z Touring is still priced $14,000 less than base model Cayman, let’s look at the standard features in that model. In the 370Z Touring you get standard:
With more power, quicker acceleration and a much lower price it is hard to see why anyone would choose a Cayman over the 2015 Nissan 370Z. Visit Benton Nissan of Hoover, serving the entire Birmingham, AL area, and see just how affordable this kind of sports car performance can be.View Inventory
