Owned a 135i and test drove a Cayman S. Two different cars. 135i is heavier, less tossable, but offers more adrenaline on the street and straight away from the torque. 135i does not nearly handle as well as 350z or Cayman.The 135i is barely comparable to the 370Z in terms of sports car-ness, it's no match with the Cayman. I believe the upcoming 1M/M1/135is will be a better match for the Cayman. Although I still think the MR layout is frankly impossible to match in terms of road feel.
M1 has been cancelled.I believe the upcoming 1M/M1/135is will be a better match for the Cayman.
Sorry, yes, you are correct, in fact the new S has even more doesn't it?PR-S said:Yes hawc but you are comparing it to a non S cayman. The S has 295hp.
Lots of confusing info about this.M1 has been cancelled.
The advantage of moding turbo cars, cheap with BIG gains!A guy at the track had a 135i with a couple of grand in engine mods that netted him just south of 400HP and he was riding on Hoosiers.
He was very, very quick. All black car. Scary looking little beast.
Yes, the 135 only comes only as a coupe, but in this case, "sedan" is along the lines of meaning a 4 seater..............a few people have mentioned the 135 as a "sedan"--since when did that car come w/ 4 doors? I've always thought it was a coupe only?
I personally don't think the 135i is comparable to a Cayman S--the CS is a true sports car where the 135 is a sporty coupe, but not a real sports car. It is fast in a straight line, but doesn't score as good in other characteristics
