    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    i LOVE that big warning sticker on the passenger dash!

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    I'm not sure I'd appreciate to have this text on my doors...

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    Cayman and Boxster special editions - as with all mass manufacturers these come out to shift the current models just before major changes arrive - and then the residual values of these editions plummet indicating they aren't that special after all.

    I remember the 996 Anniversary that came out just before the 997 and no-one bought them!

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    Edition 1, does it mean that Porsche will have other editions of this car later ?

    I don't think Porsche marketing gimmicks will sell their products as such, at least not in the states.

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    I fear they are going to do a lot of porsche design editions... 911, Boxster, Cayenne... may Wiedeking have mercy on us... Ai, getting cynical again...

    Think i'd rather get a different set of stickers than that - think they look awful.

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    The color of the stripes reminds me a little bit that of the 430 Scuderia.

    At least the Scuderia IS something special over and above a 430. The Cayman Porsche Design is just an expensive, tarted up Cayman.

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    Gorgeous car. best handling car in the lineup and I would know because I own one of each.

    Most porsche special editions are.

    2000 911 millenium
    2004 911 40th anniversary
    2004 boxster 550
    2006 Cayenne titanium~
    2007 boxster orange edition
    2008 boxster rs 60
    2008 cayman porsche design...

    all useless and stupid.

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    except the 911 anniversary did get a 345bhp engine which puts it ahead of the base 997.

    Bar that, they are all parts bin specials to shift stock !

    The 345HP engine was available to all 996s as an optional extra in the form of powerkit either from factory or retrofit. The anniversary model also came with LSD that was also in the options list.

    You seriously own one of each?

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    The X51 power package was available on all the regular 996s throughout the model run.

    Also the Turbo S that came out in 2005 was no more special than a regular Turbo with X50 and a lot of options.

    So Add the Turbo S to my list of useless special editions (that didn't stop me from buying one though )

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    I agree, just got a PD1 for my wife and it is so good I am going to sell my 997 TT with PCCB - just feels rubbish in comparison. Also drove my friend's 997 C4S, which was also not as good as Cayman.

    You are one of the few 997tt owners that would be willing to make such a statement. How is the Caymand S PD1 better than the Turbo?

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    It's hardly a secret that the 987 handles better than the 997.

    It's hardly a secret either that the former is deliberately underpowered.

    Wow

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    My wife got a PD1 as well, and I really like driving that car. Great car!

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    It just has a real delicacy in all areas that the TT lacks. I am sure lower weight helps. TT gearchange is tough from 1-2 and spoils experience, power delivery is less satisfying although the turbos deliver a bigger punch. Of course PCCB are superior. Sound in PD1 is great - got the PSE. Steering is more communicative. In short it is just a lovely car. Interesting also to see that when we drive together through town all eyes are on the PD1!

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    Guys sit tight... my dealer just called me. A PD 2 is coming out this is for REAL!

    Re: cayman Porsche design edition 1

    Cool, what car are they doing?
    I also own one of each cars, Cayenne T, Cayman S and 911TT and Cayman is fave
