    I drove the Cayman S, and it's incredible!

    I just got back from Spain where the international launch took place for the dealers. We had an opportunity to drive the Cayman S in the hills of Ibiza. I have never driven a road car that handles better than this new Porsche. It's neutral, powerful, and so easy to drive fast. We all had a big smile on our faces when we came back from the ride.
    The car looks good in the pictures, and much better in the flesh. I attached some pictures.

    Re: and another one

    Nice shots...thanks

    Re: and another one

    have you driven a boxster before and if so how did it compare to that handling wise?

    Re: and another one

    cool, thanks for the info!

    Re: and another one

    The Cayman feels a lot more like a small 997 Coupe. It's much stiffer than the Boxster. It feels more gokart like any other car I have driven.

    Here's another picture of a Cayman in Speed Yellow

    Re: And Cobalt Blue

    ...any close up pics of the Seal Grey?!?!!?!!! Looks great from the top down shot



    Re: and another one

    Wow thx for that white one! My favorite so far...

    Re: and another one

    Do you have anymore pictures of this white one?

    I love it. This is the color I'm getting!


    Re: And Cobalt Blue

    I have been waiting for a White Cayman S pic, thanks for sharing.

    White looks amazing

    Wow...I've surprised myself. The last white car I really liked was the first gen M3...but this Cayman in white really looks hot. My spec would be:

    two tone grey/black interior
    all black interior w/ red seat belts

    Re: White looks amazing

    I've got white w/black interior and carrera classic wheels on the way (November build). The tweaked photo attached tells the story...

    Re: White looks amazing

    Can anyone photoshop the white pic and add the exterior aluminum option #DAE? This option gives an aluminum look to the front grill openings, side "gills", and lower side mirror supports.

    Re: White looks amazing

    Has anyone noticed that the side intakes are painted body coloured...?
    Why couldn't they have done that on the Boxster!
    Or at least offered it as an option from the start.

    Re: And Cobalt Blue

    There best pics I have seen of it ,,thanks erikniehof..


    Re: And Cobalt Blue

    Very beautiful! Thanks.
    Looks like another satisfied and impressed Cayman drive.

    Yeah, they usually look better body colored. But the silver ones on a Boxster look really good if you get Sport Design wheels.

    Re: White looks amazing

    Seems White is a very popular color for Cayman S.

    Re: And Cobalt Blue

    I hope they will bring the Cayman to the Porsche Lunach at the end of the month..
    The Yellow one looks good, anyone knows if it's the same Yellow as in the 996 ?
    My favorites are the Yellow, Blue & White.. in that order..
    I will have to see it in person before I make up my mind

    I thought I was the only one who is going for white, then I see that everyone else here thinks white is great too!

    Re: White looks amazing

    I'm also picking white

    Re: White looks amazing

    For those who've driven, can you comment on understeer compared to 996/997?

    Re: White looks amazing

    I never buy a car in White before, this is going to be the 1st one. It just look stunning on Cayman S.

    Re: I drove the Cayman S, and it's incredible!

    Thanks for the info and pics Erik

    Hope you liked your stay in Spain

    Ahh, but that IS the plan . Show it as std on the Cayman, so that 987 Boxster buyers can be motivated to pay $900 for " painted side intake " option next model year , hoping buyers have forgotten that it was std on the 986 Boxster. !

    Re: White looks amazing

    To bad the US will have those BUmperrrettees which will entirely ruin the lines signle-handidly.

    Pardon the spelling.
