    Cayman legroom

    Will the Cayman have identical legroom to the Boxster? Or will it have longer legroom like the Carrera?

    I love the Boxster, but have never been able to drive one comfortably for an extended period because there was just not enough length between the seat and pedals for my legs. Any improvement on the Cayman?

    I imagine it will be identical to the 987 Boxster - after all it is basically the same car with a fixed roof.

    Re: Cayman legroom

    I would expect the engine bay firewall to be exactly the same place as the 987, so not reason that seat travel should be any different.

    However, you may be able to recline the seatback at more of an angle ?

    Re: Cayman legroom

    How tall are you chipper?

    Re: Cayman legroom

    I'm 6'4" Most of my height is in my legs. I've owned two Boxster Ss and loved them both. The Boxster, in my view, is the MOST FUN car Porsche builds. However, the legroom in the Boxster is just not quite enough for me. I have a 997 Carrera now and the driver's seat goes WAAAAY back. Lot's of leg room. I wish Porsche could somehow put Carrera legroom in the Boxster and Cayman, but I doubt that is going to happen. Thanks.

    Re: Cayman legroom

    I'm 6'3" and I'm very comfortable in the Boxster (986 and 987), but I must add that I have relatively short legs.

    Maybe you are a former Alfa driver (like me) ? The older Alfa models always required long arms and short legs at the same time.

    I am 185 cm and I have plenty of legroom in the Boxster. Have tried the Cayman seats at the Frankfurt Autoshow and could not find any differences compared to the Boxster.
