    I've never been much of a Porsche fan. I'm sure they're great cars to drive, but their looks have always been pretty boring. Until now...

    What are your thoughts on the Cayman S?

    Is this aimed at the more professional and 'veteran' hairdressers of the world?

    Fuck.

    Yes, because the Cayman represents such a massive revolution in Porsche design.

    I mean there is no elements of anything previous in there at all, it's amazing :rolleyes:

    Gosh, what would offtopic do without sarcasm?

    Clearly it is in-line with what Porsche already has going on. This vehicle just struck a chord with me though. The backend has some more curves to it, the headlights aren't as pronounced, and the 3 side air intakes are a slight departure.

    I was just wondering if anyone else shares the same opinion. What does the loyalist Porsche crew have to say about it? Clearly this is a better option than the outgoing Boxster.

    Definately the cayman. A brilliant car to drive, too bad they underpowered it. Otherwise it'd be too good to be true!

    they had to underpower it to keep the 997 their flagship model. they cayman has more neutral handling than the 997 does so with more power it would beat the 997 in that aspect.

    I'd have just rephrased it in a non-sarcastic way.

    It's a beautiful car and I'd probably murder your family for one.

    Laugh all you want but it's like a second faster, it was in an article in Panorama. It might differ from track to track, but the one that the cars were tested on in the article the cayman S was faster.

    I saw a Cayman on the road today, dark blue colour.

    My initial thought was that it looked like an Audi TT left near the fire for too long. Really struggling to like that styling.

    If you read the entire comment, and not just parts of it maybe you'll understand it better.

    997 Carrera is faster in every respect. A. Porsche would not make cheaper = faster. B. No article says its fast C. Even if it was faster its still not a 911 D. If you couldn't tell I own a 997 and I know that it would whoop up on it in EVERY competition except price which I win in also because I paid almost 100K!!!

    :mb: I'll dig up the Panorama article and scan it for you. I guess you feel cool cause you paid 100k for your car. It's too bad a 70K dollar Z06 will walk all over your car in every respect, except maybe status, but I guess thats all you care about anyway.

    Not a Pano article but Automobile Magazine. Here is the front cover. I'll get the rest later.

    See that "Faster and Cheaper than the 911".
