Which is Better: Porsche 911 or Porsche Cayman?

Video / Comments

The cause of many never-ending debates.

This is the question that's been asked countless times since 2005, the year the mid-engined Porsche Cayman was launched. Ever since, it's been a widely known fact that Porsche is deliberately holding back on the performance potential of the Cayman in order not to infringe upon their 911 flagship's territory. Although it's rear-engined, Porsche engineers have for decades perfected this set-up, allowing for superior performance on the road and race track.

However, the question still remains: which is the better car? Don't even bother asking a 911 enthusiast, as the answer is already obvious. The same thing goes for a mid-engined sports car fan. Fortunately, Auto Shepherd Films decided to examine this question even further.

They asked a trio of experts, including the executive editor of Road & Track magazine, their opinions on the matter. We thought the most interesting question asked was whether if Porsche were just starting up today, would they make the 911 mid-engined? Definitely something to think about.
