    Thanks for the article!
    Every journalist who has driven the car so far thinks it's fantastic.

    All Porsches are fantastic.

    What is different compared to the Boxster S? Most journalists I know (or should I say ALL) drive a Volkswagen, Audi or maybe a BMW as their private/company car. ANY Porsche they drive seems to be fantastic to them.

    Revvv...I understand your enthusiasm but c'mon, the Cayman S is a Boxster S with a roof and 15 HP more, don't expect it to sound and feel like a GT3.

    I have your point of view too RC, but Porsche marketing is presenting Cayman S as if it were such a revolutionary product that nobody expected it.

    That's true, but maybe the Cayman S offers a slightly better performance setup due to its fixed roof?
    Also, it's a new car (well, sort of ), which is probably exciting to most of them.

    I'm very happy with the reviews thus far. It's good to hear that most journalists think all Porsches are fantastic. They are.

    I'm sure the Cayman will be great and fun to drive, but I will not take for granted what journalists say in there first reviews!!! Either they drive P cars too seldom and then , any P would be fantastic, or they sell more mags by being very enthusiastic..or hope, by praising the car, that P would later let them drive a CGT ?

    First reviews by journalists about the 997C4S was : one cannot feel any difference compared to the C2S, except on slippery roads or very tight corners.......
    I tried the car and could immediately feel the difference!!!!!
