    Cayman already faster than 997...

    http://autoweek.com/article.cms?articleId=101907

    The autoweek article says there will be a 3.4 liter 295 hp model, a 3.2 liter model using the current motor, and then an S version with 305 hp that will be the top of the line. Interesting that it is already faster than the 997 carrera, I hope they make a lightweight version with a carrera S or GT3 motor and make it limited edition would be badass, but probably won't happen but we would all love it.

    yep, with less weight and more rigidity than the existing boxster, oil starvation with it's fake dry sump could be a serious issue.

    Didn't see any torque estimates. Interesting though.

    Only if its driver takes it to the track very often Ben don't you think?
    Look at the 997, it's fine without a dry sump lub engine.
    Dry sump becomes crucial only when during long transversal accelerations.

    It will have a 3.4l with 295hp, that's confirmed by Porsche already.
