It is in no way a poor man's Porsche. The new designed Cayman and Boxster are actually just as good looking if not better looking than the new 911's. Besides the fact that getting into either a new Boxster/Cayman S will put you at Base 911 performance (straight line) with better handling. The new Boxster S put in a sub 8 minute Ring time, and Porsche is supposed to be focusing more on performance with the cayman. Meaning if they put options such as PTV in the new cayman it will be at low 7:50s. Besides the fact that the lines on the cayman are absolutely beautiful (i also have a cayman). The M3 is beautiful, and one of my favorite cars, but these two cars are very, very different cars.
