This is great to see owners actually driving and enjoying their Caymans.





I have also considered a Corvette C6 or Z06. The guys from the Corvette forum had a similar thread, where they were boasting, '600 miles - not a single problem!'. Majority did not even top 3k miles with mostappear to be garage queens. It almost seem like some of those guys were afraid to drive it, worrying that it may break...which a lot actually did.

Late April, about 3300 miles. That's pretty good considering it splits time with 3 other cars and my round-trip commute is only 28 miles (and I work too much so not much time for driving).

3 months old, and 4500 miles, not a single problem with this beauty.


The highest praise I can offer is that I would buy it again

Just over 6K since I took delivery, 4 APR. I find excuses to drive this car. I love driving on the NJ Trpk (as crappy as it is) and Garden State Pkwy (much nicer). Those are our very own racetracks where 80mph seems to be the standard speed. Anybody out there from the area that can relate?

Jeez Booster, you're really enjoying that baby!! I've only got about 8500 km - including trip to coast.

Of course, you put a couple hundred kilometers on driving that car sideways along the ditch, too!



Are you coming down to Edmonton for track day?

Delivery on July 1st - 2600+ miles. I live in manhattan and only drive it on the weekends... actually, this seems to imply that ALL THAT I DO is drive it on the weekends. ;)

Will hit well over 15K after a trip down south this weekend, then back to London next week.
