    REAL sight of the Cayman

    Hi guys,

    have seen the Cayman in real life for the first time. I share my impression with you if you like:

    from the front angle the car looks much smaller than 911 or Boxster, due to the fact that the roof "bubble" is so prominent. In other words, it looked to me like a very tiny car - something that doesn't happen in the Boxster since the roof more or less ends at the upper edge of the windshield. It by far doesn't have the same stance and appereance as the 911, so I don't expect that many canibalisation amongst the model lineup.
    This wasn't obvious to me from the first official or press shots because the car was usually pictured from a bird's or frog eye perspective.

    From the rear angle, the long rear window and hatch make it look more stretched and longer than the Boxster - but again it makes it look a bit smaller than it actually is.

    A very nice item was the shape of the side windows - sitting inside you get an impression that reminded me of the tank-like view from insde a Audi TT coupe. Let alone that the upper windows' shape, in other words the A- and B-pillor and the connection between, just looks remarkable to me.

    After all I expected something different, maybe the car has to grow on me.
    Of course these are just my personal impressions so don't cancel your orders!

    Thanks for the review. Actually the way you describe it is exactly what I was hoping for. My dealer is putting his demo out today so I'll have my first look....can't wait!

    What color was it? I have found that the black doesn't suit this car, it's better in light colors, dark colors make it look small

    But then according to JC on TopGear this is a car for people who are small
    So I think black suits it perfectly!

    So I told you the right things!

    Don't get me wrong, I really think the car looks fine - it just looks different than on any picture I have seen so far. The hatchback makes it look more stretched, therefore longer and narrower than the Boxster.

    The car had this light blue metallic paint that is a special option (cobalt?) and grey leather interior. I was so focussed on the exterior looks that I can't remember how the rims looked like..!
