For those of you that have a manual drive Cayman S, do the location of the pedals allow for heel & toe shifting?

My accelerator pedal was a little low, so I screwed on a pedal plate from Rennline and it was at the perfect height. Just used the plate, without the underlying adjustable elevation part.
HTH.

I think its placed at very perfect place. Very comfortable as well.
I've never had cramps.

You can also get pedal extensions from Rennline:

The stock pedals, in their stock positions, work fine for me. I have to make sure to use the very left edge of my right foot (my big toe) on the brake so that the very right edge of my right foot can blip the gas.

As said above, there has been much discussion on this subject. I find that the spacing between the brake and accelerator is too wide (size 8 US shoe) for me so I use an extension on the accelerator. I do the "roll the foot" version of H&T.

I was sitting in a '10 GT3 last weekend and I realized that those pedals would take some getting use to. The pedals in my S2000 are better placed for me or at least they are what I am use to.

Works for me, but might be better with a higher go pedal.

No problems with heel-toe'ing in the Cayman at all. You'll need to learn to roll you're foot and practice your positioning of it on the brake/accelerator.
You will find it easier in shoes with a heel under lighter braking to start with but after some practice I have no issues in my racing shoes/boots.

I think the gas peddle is a bit low for street driving, though nothing that is unusable. It should be about right for racing where you'll be pushing down the brake hard before downshifting. As others have said, there are several threads asking this same question with more opinions.

2nd what xdamage said. Not bad for street driving but easier when pressing harder on the brake pedal then the brake pedal and accelerator are a little closer in height for heel/toe.

H/T is more difficult when driving with my PUMA Speed Cats (narrow design shoes) than regular shoes.

Just purchased a '06 CS two weeks ago :D and while H&T was awkward at first (size 10 shoes), after a little bit of practice I can do so now without too much trouble. Still a little inconsistent with the blip because there aren't too many turns where I can do so without having to come to a complete stop.

I feel they are very good. At first thought my STI was better but after a month of practice I like the Cayman better. I find the more classic technique works better with the CS.:):)

I find the pedal spacing takes a bit of getting used to, but once past the initial familiarization period heel & toe shifting is pretty easy. It's certainly easier than the S2000. I couldn't use the rolling foot technique with the Honda. That car's pedal spacing required using heel on the gas pedal and toe on the brake.
