No comparison, if you want to be involved with the care the Cayman R has set a new standard... just put in to buy one out of state..
I feel the same way after driving the same P cars back to back...I didn't think the driving experience was worth the price differential.......for those looking for a DD (and not tracking at all) you could consider a Cayman S with the optional LSD and it will have more comforts , cost a bit less and be close to the Cayman R in performance. Not sure whats going on with NEW 2012 models (no availability here in NJ), as I was told I needed to wait for new model coming out in a year from summer. I placed a small deposit and saw there were several people ahead on the list. It really looks like the dealers do not get enough cars as I frequently here they run out....

All this talk about which car will "beat" the other car is amusing to me. What about the driver in all of this? Most people will never be able to drive these cars at their limits. As such the choice becomes simple. Get whichever car you subjectively enjoy more, everything considered.
