I have a 987.1 cayman and a 986 boxster. There really isn't all that much difference. It's a bit harder to reach in the top of the engine compartment with the cayman due to the hatchback.

When I was looking at boxsters I found that the 987 (2005+) had more leg room than a 986. It would be a good idea to sit in one before buying.
