Winter: daily my Boxster unless there’s heavy snow. Use a Tundra for snowy commutes.
Summer: daily my GTS and use the Boxster on weekends to commute to the Cape.

BRZ; yeah...
I've commented before just how many similarities exist between them and the Cayman.
Great machine.

Daily use, for cross-town Tokyo traffic:

Weekend hauling, fire trails, rivers, snow, and sand work:

I love driving my 981 BS almost every day. This is my ‘19 Q7. Sometimes use my wife’s car as well.

Currently my 15 BGTS is my "daily"; although I steal my wife's Macan S for commutes into DC or Northern Virginia as I know I'll likely be sitting in traffic (I don't have a daily commute).

I will likely buy a 3rd car before the winter this year though, as my Boxster mostly stayed in the garage from December-March as I primarily drove the aforementioned Macan and I bought my oldest son a Mazda3 that he couldn't drive at the time but will be soon. Probably an Audi RS4, possibly E36 M3.

Or I trade the Boxster in for a 991.2 C4S. IDK, life's an adventure.

Changed my answer. Now have a 981 Boxster Spyder and bought a '16 6spd Mazda 3 hatchback that I'm daily driving. My commute to work is less that 10 minutes on 35mph roads, the Spyder never even gets up to temp so rarely drive it to work. We also drive my wife's BMW X3 when we're together. I enjoy driving all 3 of them, vastly different but all good cars.

981 Boxster S is my daily since I have a relatively short commute and SoCal weather.

Daily is a 2006 Honda Accord SE sedan that Raid can’t kill. The body of the car will erode away before the drivetrain goes.
Weekend is a 2010 Porsche Cayman manual. Oddly the Cayman has been pretty close in reliability except for a $35 clutch switch in 4 years.

Fortunately not. The roads around me are absolute crap and I'd hate to put my Cayman through that.

My daily is a 2014 Jetta GLI. I have it on air suspension with a few other mods, but it's otherwise stock. She's been super reliable and surprisingly fun to drive! Prior to that, I had a 2001 Audi A4 Quattro, but it was a very high mileage car that unfortunately didn't make it.

2017 E400 Mercedes Wagon for family hauling and trips
2011 Spyder for canyon runs
1990 911 Targa for canyon runs and around town

Yeah I have too many cars, but I don’t want to sell any of them.
