    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I've got it ... I figured out what the Cayman's roof ,in side profile , reminded me of ... Dr. Phil's thick-skulled bulbous bald head !!





    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I just got home and it's a good think I am drunk, it helps ease my disappointemtnent. The rear is beautiful, but something about the front and side again remind me of an rx8, I'm too buzzed to figure out what but here a comparison pic. I hope I like the Cayman better tomororrow when I'm sober but I probably wont unless Porsche drops the base price to $55k where it should be.


    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Like someone else said, the only thing I don't like in the pictures are the rims. Other than that, I really like it. I was wondering what they were going to do with the back end, and might I say that they did a wonderful job with it. The fog lights in the air inlets are a nice touch for differentiation too.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I like it!!!!!!, it looks nice from every angle, and its performance figueres are quite good in relation with its price.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    All these different strong opinions meen this car has personality!!!! I think it could become something very special...once we will be able to drive it, it just could be the best thing....and after 2 or 3 years, with increased power, face lift...I might become a classic in the small sports car segment ( only the price might be VERY wrong).
    When I listen to a new song on the radio and like it straight away, usually I can' t listen to it anymore after 3 month. When It takes me a few listening times, when I have to be tamed by a song..ohhh then it just becomes one that I can listen to for years and never get fed up of it.
    I think the same could become true with this reptile!!!!

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    So, does it have aluminium chassis or not?

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I think so...
    unless they are lying about that which might be a good thing cause they could be lying about price and hp
    If it does have aluminum chassis, is this new, and does that make it significantly lighter and stronger??

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I like what I see..

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Yah i just looked up about aluminum, said that it is 1/3 density of steel and alot more expensive. Perhaps this is something that helps justify the price of the cayman. It did say alluminum CHASSIS in the English news report thing.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I'm slightly disappointed with the looks of the Cayman so far, I mean what's up with the round shiny thing around foglights - that's just ugly! And the butt looks a little saggy to me, this car would be the preferred vehicle of the Saggy Bottom Boys (from Oh brother where art thou)
    The 997 and Boxster are mucho better lookin' IMO.

    Anyway, here are some more pictures of the Cayman from Auto Motor und Sport

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    My first impression is : I don't like it !!
    1. FRONT with those ROUND Foglights :
    2. SIDE Roofline :
    3. BACK : Very Nice (Agressive)

    It will have to grow on me (I think) and MAYBE it WILL look better IN REAL !!
    For now I am VERY HAPPY that I didn't wait for it and ordered A REALLY BEAUTIFUL CAR : 987 Boxster S

    Wow! Looks great. Is that rear lip spoiler fixed or does it extend?



    I believe the spoiler extends vertically.



    the bottom part is fixed, with the top half extendable. Shame not as flat as the boxster's.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Hi, I'm the new guy. Damn, you guys are fast. And well informed. And since my name is Kai, I love it, but I would change the letters on mine. With black wheels and in black. Mean machine. i wonder who'll be the first to turbo charge it. gemballa or Tech art. 9ff?

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I couldn't agree more - thank goodness the Cayman S and 997 look so different. Perhaps unwittingly, the Cayman may, where cost is less of a factor, constitute a really good reason to make people move up to a 997!

    Admittedly, at first, people take time to react to any new design. But as for me, this car is never ever going to 'grow' on me in terms of its looks even though I may be able to appreciate its performance.

    If I am destined to fall in love with the looks of any car, I always love it right from the start. As with physical attraction to a woman, I believe one's first reaction is usually the right one

    Can you trust the first reaction to a bad picture of a woman?

    Re: At Last! Triumph replace the GT6 Mk3

    Ye Gods! I have just realised. I have been duped and just spent an awful lot of money on the Triumph Spitfire Mk 5. I must admit, it is a bit better than the Mk 4.

    The chassis apparently is aluminum, not just the suspension.




    Someone screwed up on the translation. See my post above where I explained how this must have happened.



    The first post about the aluminum chassis, I was referring to a translation I made from the German paragraph online. The second time I was referring to the fact that the OFFICIAL english version said it had an aluminum chassis.



    The UK press release say it has aluminium suspension but doesn't mention anything about the chassis.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    one more picture that should answer the spoiler question:

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    i dont understand why its more expensive (for no apparent reason, 15hp maybe :P)? im havinga hard time decidng on wether to buy a 987s or cayman. i was hoping on putting a deposit 2 morrow for whichever i decide, but its looks like im confused again. Damn it, so complicating

    do you think i can retrofit the cayman s exhaust on the 987 and retrofit the 987 bumper on the cayman?

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Why on earth would you want to waste money like that? The choice between the two is fairly simple really - do you want a soft top or a fixed head coupe that is slightly quicker and slightly more expensive? If you are going to spend much on speccing up a Cayman you might as well have a 997, IMO.

    cuz the cayman is new and no one has it, in dubai that counts for an extra 2 points.

    my heart says cayman
    my brain says bxster s

    im stuck , i knew it.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I meant changing bumpers and exhausts being a waste of money, But - if you can't make your mind up between Boxster and Cayman, buy both cars! Neither will disappoint

    WEIGHT Cayman

    any news about the weight????????

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I'd only consider the Cayman if there was a Turbo version, else I wouldn't bother - a Boxster with a hardtop is almost as good, plus it looks better

    And Amir (Salaam!), wouldn't a Cayman be "small fry" compared to the cars ppl drive in Dub Dubs?

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    I wouldn't exchange my 987 S for a Cayman, I admit. And yes, I agree the Boxster with hardtop does look better than the Cayman, to my eyes anyway.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Slightly off topic my friend but physical attraction to a woman is made up of many things of which looks are just one factor. But looks are obviously important and for some people no amount of character, charm etc can compensate fully for inadequate looks.

    I guess one could say no amount of performance can fully compensate if one finds a car unattractive visually!

    Anyway, these pictures are professionally produced - so they should hopefully show the car in its best light.
