    Porsche targets younger buyers with Cayman S; vehicle to be built in Finland, Stuttgart


    Re: Cayman in Autoweek

    OK, I'm still not exactly on board with Porsches marketing here.....

    It's supposed to be geared towards younger buyers.....but more expensive than the Boxster?.....that's interesting, doesn't Porsche know that in *most* cases wealth takes time to accumulate??, and being a mid 30's guy myself the absolute last thing I care about is trunk space and a hatch!

    To me the translation of the story is more like....

    "The typical Cayman buyer will be young and rich and will want to carry all his cash around in the spacious trunk."

    "He will not think twice about parting with $60k large even knowing that a coupe based on the Boxster with a few extra ponies should cost about the same as a Boxster S. His youthful spontaneity has not yet been clouded by a few more years of wisdom."

    Sorry, that was a pretty funny article IMO.......I love the spin. C'mon Porsche, cut the crap and give us the goods.

    Thanks for the link.

    Interesting that it says: "A small number also will be built in Stuttgart, Germany"....Do I smell Carlos' GTS

    and still, not a single official picture of the entire car.

    this sort of guerilla marketing is getting seriously annoying

    Patience? Heck, I've been waiting for some type of affordable Porsche coupe since the demise of the 968 in 1995!

    If memory serves, wasn't the 968 over $50k in 95? I know the cabriolet version was...

    I am not certain aboout 1995 but the introductory price of the 968 in the US was $41,605 1n 1991. Not much was changed between then and when the last models were sold in 1995. In fact there was no change between 1994 and 1995. The last model year for the 968 was essentially 1994.
