    Another nice review.

    http://www.autosite.com/content/shared/a...icle_id_int/816

    Some nice comments....

    "Between 5,000 and 7,000 rpm, the 2006 Porsche Cayman S seems to have almost limitless acceleration. We routinely took it to 70 mph before shifting into third gear. Even during a very unofficial speed trial we managed to find plenty of torque in fifth while exceeding 125 mph. The Cayman was composed the whole while, illustrating a major difference between it and the more expensive Carrera 911. When you drive the bigger Porsche fast, it's hard to feel totally in control and you're aware that at any moment things might go very wrong. But the Cayman isn't so threatening. It feels more manageable, adding greatly to its appeal."

    "You cannot help but whoop like an American Idol winner when you drive the 2006 Porsche Cayman S hard. The engine sings like Barry White, the steering wheel melds to your hands and it seems as though your nervous system's rapidly firing synapses are directly connected to the road. Did we mention that the Cayman carves turns like Bode Miller?"

    "One of our favorite things, however, is the Cayman's engine note. It produces goose bumps, and because the Cayman's large glass hatch and cargo area work like a speaker cabinet, you're surrounded by the engine's music and further immersed in the driving experience. It's like a THX version of the racing sounds you made as kid, which sums up the Cayman's greatest attribute: It makes you feel like a kid with the coolest toy on the road."

    Re: Another nice review.

    I guess they liked it!

    Re: Another nice review.

    I wonder how the exhaust note on the Cayman S differs from the Boxster S?

    Re: Another nice review.

    There are plenty of reports on the difference. It is supposed to be even more pronounced in the US version than in Europe.

    Re: Another nice review.

    Just wonder when will be the earliest delivery, want to see some owner's comment rather than magazine.
