10. 2014 Porsche Cayman S

Make no mistake, this IS as much of a bucket-list as it is a dream list of cars. I’ve yet to drive many of these sublime examples of motoring, but if I was ever given the opportunity, I’d jump at it,  potentially re-scheduling a birthday party, religious holiday or anniversary to get a chance behind one of these vehicles. If (or until) these opportunities arise, I’ll have to just dream.

First on my list is the 2014 Porsche Cayman. A coupe based on the latest Porsche Boxster, I’m convinced that this will be a car more suited to my tastes. With the engine roaring just behind the front seats, rather than over the rear axle like 911’s, the Cayman is a fantastic car for when the road gets windy.

Naturally, my preferred Cayman is the 325 hp, 3.4 liter equipped Cayman S, which makes the sprint to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. This means that it’s just a step behind last generation 911. Like the new 2013 Boxster, the Cayman is lower, wider and longer than the older generation model. Additionally, the lightweight materials help with performance and grip. I also melt every time I see that gorgeous tan interior.
