I’ve also a new Cayman owner , and also looked at the Abarth 124 spider, much nicer and standout than the Fiat badged one, which has now been withdrawn from their new cars list.
the Abarth engine sounded great, but as I’ve always wanted a Porsche and the spider didn’t quite scratch the itch that would have still been there had I bought the Abarth, and same as Rich mentioned you have to balance out having an older
Porsche or a new car , which isn’t a Porsche depending on your budget restrictions . I have to say I still love looking at my car on the drive or in reflections as I drive by, something I don’t think I would have got from buying something else. Plus also the Cayman group seem to be a great bunch for advice and help should you need it.
