    Yes, you can perhaps rationalise Porsche's decision to up the power on the S early so that it competes better with the BMW's Z4 M cars.



    Then why not jump a generation, stuff the 3.6 in and remove the base carrera from the catalog?

    Re: PAG corporate communication (new Boxster engines)

    Very interesting topic. I would be kind of annoyed if my dealer didn't tell me (providing he knew of course) of the engine upgrade.

    Personally, I think they will up the base carrera soon as well. then next year the Cayman will get a bit more power too.

    The Cayman is quite a different car to the Boxster, there will always be people who don't like cabs - I think Porsche is more interested in catching other market segments - hence the Cayenne and the upcoming Panamera. And in that sense, they did a good job introducing the Cayman.

    I think a few people commented that you will always find upgrades coming in year after year. If you want to buy the ultimate car, you will be waiting forever. If you are worried about depreciation buy a Toyota! You will buy it for nothing and probably sell it for nothing : )

    Moral of the story is, don't worry about the newest and fastest, the cars we all have are plenty new and plenty fast! Enjoy!

    Re: PAG corporate communication (new Boxster engines)

    Dreamcar, my feeling is that MR and RR drive and behave differently. As a first time Porsche owner I can already tell from my test drive and I prefer the MR setup. I wish PAG can start opening up a bit and allow for its MR range like Cayman S and Boxster to compete with the 911. Since it has a carrera GT which is MR I can't see why cayman and boxster can't have 3.6 or 3.8 thrown in. I rather pay more and those who wish to pay more have no choice but 911 (or the GT which is out of range and impractical for most). What is PAG afraid of anyway? The 911 legend will be discontinued? The 911 while being legendary doesn't always have to sit on top of the box and the CS anyway. I don't see why not. Anyway, I guess I must see things from PAG POV and it obviously has its reason to do the flagship the way it does now.
