2006 Porsche Cayman SChristine's Porsche15519
We had an absolute blast renting Christine's 2006 Porsche Cayman S. To put my review in context, I daily drive a 2014 Subaru WRX, so that's where I'm coming from. The Porsche Cayman S is a distillation of what a sports car represents. Is it fast? Of course, but more important is the way that speed is available. The Porsche's naturally aspirated flat-six offers immediate, visceral acceleration accompanied by a howl that manages to be simultaneously gravelly and smooth, like a demon gargling with honey. The snug cockpit fits like a well-tailored suit, feeling neither cramped nor roomy. The suspension rides harsher than most might be comfortable with, but allows the car to rotate nimbly, and makes each corner an adventure. Christine herself was a pleasure to deal with, and I would definitely rent from her again!
Great first experience with Turo. Christine made it easy to rent the Cayman S. Easy pickup and drop off. The car is in great shape for a 2006 and runs fabulous. She obviously knows and loves cars and is an enthusiast. I'd rent from her again.
Christine was very accommodating, communicative throughout the process, and very easy to work with. Always nice too to work with someone who is a car enthusiast as well. The Cayman is a fun little car--driving and performing well. It had one minor electrical gremlin with the seat that Christine said is on-deck to get fixed soon, but otherwise no issues at all. Mid-engine keeps the car planted and the handling is great. If you're thinking of buying one, this is a great way to check it out for a few days first. Or, if you're just looking to have a fun little weekend trip, go for it!
Awesome experience with the Cayman S. They literally don't make them like they used to. This car still had hydraulic power steering and a classic flat 6. No such thing in the latest incarnation. I'm really appreciative that there are people like Christine putting enthusiast cars up on Turo. I hope I treated it with the respect it deserves, which includes (for future renters) not lugging the engine (it wants gas and rpms), waiting for it to warm up before cycling through the full rev range, and matching revs on downshifts. Preserve these wonderful cars! Note: the car has been driven. It's not gleaming straight from the showroom and has some age/wear related quirks. Those are irrelevant. Enjoy the drive.
Christine was incredibly professional and a true pleasure to work with. She responded quickly to every question I had, and was very helpful working with me on pick up and drop off. The car was extremely clean, and lots of fun to drive around the San Diego area. Thanks for a fantastic experience!
Renting Christine's beautiful Cayman S Porsche was amazing. Christine not only kept the car very clean but also was very kind and easy to work with. Her Porsche is a must see for any car enthusiast and I would certainly do business with her again!
Incredible car and amazing owner. Christine was very flexible and accommodating of my schedule, and the car was spectacular. She keeps it immaculate and it feels like a brand new car. What a blast to drive! Highly recommended - would give 6 stars if I could.
What a great experience! Coordinating with Christine to pick up her Cayman S was really more like having a good friend pick you up at the airport and loan you her very cool car! (Okay, you need to help defray expenses, but, it's a bargain!) In addition to driving it for my work appointments, I ended up needing to stay over most of Saturday to get a good flight out.
Voila, a mini vacation! Driving the Cayman up the coast to La Jolla's glider port and exploring the coast a bit Saturday afternoon made me wish I had another day.
Thank you, Christine, (and Turo) for a genuinely wonderful experience, and a program that makes travel a lot more fun and convenient!
Christine's Porsche was the perfect car for my San Diego weekend adventure. She was quick to respond and went above coordinating the pickup and drop off for me. The car was incredible, clean, and a blast to drive. We will definitely be reaching out again to Christine to use her one of her other cars. Highly recommend
