We can put the back seat down and I am sure that gives a lot more than luggage space than a Cayman. I think part of the appeal of the 135i is it provides sports car levels of performance in a package that does not look like a sports car. Some people do not want to be seen in a sports car for whatever reason. Besides, a Cayman costs a chunk more than a 135i.
The Cayman and the 135i aren't relevant to the discussion of the M brand and even less relevant to each other. I only mentioned the trunk space as a joke.
