Be careful not to take a PASM equipped Cayman on the rough road......if you do, just make damn sure it is off. With PASM engaged you can roll over a dime and tell if it was heads or tails

I also suggest driving a car with the Cayman S 18" wheels - not the 17's or the 19's. I know that sounds funny, but the car handles terribly with the 17" wheels and I thinkit rides rougher. If you really want the car, let some of the air out of the tires before you take her for a spin



Thanks Iceman1

One of the key items of interest when I first heard of the car was the ability to do street settings and track settings. In my heart I knew the street setting would be normal but I was hoping it would be REALLY soft for my wife. My dream sports car.

When she rides with me now in the S2000 she sits on 3" of high density foam designed for use under a horse saddle, topped by 3-1/2" of soft foam. She also has a lumbar pillow and a custom foot rest I made to level the floor brace on the passenger's side. I also lower the tire pressure to 30# when she's with me. One of my big concerns is her head hitting the Elda roll-bar in an accident because she sits so high.

I don't know it it will help - it has been a while since I drove a S2000, but I would say the Porsche is a slightly plusher ride. It feels more sturdy/safe too - something women appreciate.
