I just love the M coupe. I really wish I wasn't this tall, so I could properly enjoy driving one.

The Cayman is so hot...plus it's just so well-rounded. The Z4 is pretty sexy too, but from everything I've heard and read, it's just not as well rounded.

Cayman...everything I want and nothing I don't. Z4 is an admirable second, but you just can't beat my current favorite porsche.

The Z4M without a doubt. Its such a well rounded car...has everything you need in a sports car. I would've chosen the Cayman if it wasnt so ugly(imo).

Have to go with the Cayman...I like the Z4 coupe...but a light mid engined Porsche wins every time.

As much as I dislike the Cayman's exterior I just can't help but love it for being the only mid-engined sports coupe here. :/

This is the hardest category to choose a winner for I find. As much as I love Porsche's I'm going to go with the Z4M.

At first glance, I approached this poll from a "Which sucks less?" perspective. The Bimmer looks like absolute ass, particularly when viewed from the front. The 'Stang is a lard-filled bath sponge with the modding potential of the engine being it's only redeeming feature.

But in the end, I chose the Cayman, not for being the least despicable, but because I really do like the car. The Cayman has all that makes a Porsche good and none of the snooty stigma and over-rated babble that makes the 911 so unappealing to me. While the Boxster is a bit of poofter car, the Cayman is a sleek sexy coupe. People will either be driving the 2.7 Cayman because they're badge whores who just want to be seen in a Porsche or they're real driving enthusiasts who want one of the best cars in Porsche's lineup.
