    lap time thoughts

    Let's say the Cayman costs $55k. I am doubting that they will let it get too close to the lap times of the Carrera S. However, a good driver in an evo/sti will get very close to an S. In other words, on your track days, you'll probably get passed by cars with 5 seats that cost 20k less than your Cayman. I'd say the Cayman should do at least 2 seconds better than an Evo around a 2 minute track. Optimally it would weigh less than 2800 pounds and cost a bit less than a boxster S, oh well, we can dream.

    Re: lap time thoughts

    I think an EVOVIII (or the new IX) would be at least equal if not faster than the Cayman S around a track IMO.

    Definitely - and with a few cheap mods, the EVO will really smoke it (and the 997). The EVO's turbo motor responds very well to software and hardware upgrades (all the way past 500hp if you add enough stuff...)

    Re: lap time thoughts

    Just to clarify (upon reading my post, I see that what I was thinking probably isn't remotely obvious), I meant that an EVO is very close to a CARRERA S, and that a Cayman S SHOULD be faster than an evo based on price and purpose, but unless hell freezes over, it won't be (it will be destroyed by evos), which is unfortunate. So we're all in agreement.

    Re: lap time thoughts

    Rereading your initial post I see I misunderstood you Yargk, we agree all along then
