The Porsche Cayman is probably one of the coolest cars to come out of the Porsche engineering team.  No it does not have crazy hybrid technology or a $1 million price tag, but it has handling characteristics that are hard to replicate.  The mid engine coupe came to light from its cousin the Boxster.  What
