    0-60 in 4.5 seconds.....hopefully they are right. At least then it would be respectable for the price.

    "0-60 in 4.5 seconds.....hopefully they are right. At least then it would be respectable for the price."

    I agree, realistically though it'll never happen, as it would make the Cayman faster than the 997 which costs about Pounds25-30k more.

    LOL.....I wonder if Porsche will institute the industries first 0-60 governor for the Cayman then? If a sub 911
    0-60mph run is about to happen, the brakes are slowly applied......

    Re: edmunds info - kewl pic

    i wouldn't put it past them.

    I'm a little annoyed with the cayman - i like the idea of it, but the (projected) price seems a bit too much. Although i want one i don't think i could justify it, when it costs the equivalent of a 2-3 yr old C4s.

    Re: edmunds info - kewl pic

    i like how they disguised it with 996 lights,

    i guess that means its REALLY similar to the 911 in profile LOL

    This will be interesting for sure. I remember a Road & Track article in the late 80's that tested each of the models Porsche had available at the time (944, 944S 4 valve, 944 Turbo, 911, and 928). The 0-60 times of the 944 Turbo, 911 and 928 were within a few tenths but the price of the 944 Turbo was around $45K at the time and the 928 was around $90K if I remember. The article tried to sort thru who each car would appeal too and I think that logic holds true to this day. Who cares if the Cayman is cheaper and handles better at the track? There are ALWAYS compromises - no back seat, stiffer ride, image, etc. I admire Porsche's marketing department for knowing who their customers are and at the same time going after new customers with new models to keep the company alive and independent.
