I've had a couple Porsches in my family. So I luv Porsche. But I gaurantee the 370z is a much MORE COMFORTABLE daily and long distance driver than the go-cart like driving Porsche. Also I've witnessed it first hand over and over. Dollar for dollar the Porsche WILL lose much more in value over the years compared to the 'Z'.

It doesn\'t matter if in fact the 370z is a bit faster.

The Porsche Cayman is a vastly superior automobile. All you\'d have to do is drive both back to back to know this.

The 370z is every mans bargain sports car. They\'re all over the place like civics. Not a bad car per say but compared to the Porsche Cayman it doesn\'t take long to realize way the Nissan is so much less expensive.

Besides, the Porsche Cayman S (320hp) blows the 370z out of the water.

in fact the 370z is not faster because if the cayman was limited to 155mph like the 370z does it will have shorts gears and better Acceleration...

were talking about 261hp vs 332 hp
