    Automobilemagazine article-interesting-Cayman Weight

    "Those hoping for a significantly lighter version of the Boxster may be disappointed; our sources indicate that the Cayman S will weigh virtually the same as the Boxster S--just under 3000 pounds."
    -not good

    "This is the most powerful volume-produced mid-engine Porsche ever, and when properly equipped with PASM and 19-inch wheels, it is faster around a track than the base 911 Carrera."

    "If the highly profitable Cayman S sells well, we could see an even more powerful version priced in the same range as the 911."
    -good, I guess.

    Re: Automobilemagazine article-interesting-Cayman Weight

    Thanks, interesting article. I wonder if the following is correct,

    "When the Cayman S goes on sale in mid-January, 2006, it will cost $59,695"


    mid-Jan. seems like it would be a very late U.S. release, weren't there some other reports of October-November U.S. arrival?

    Re: Automobilemagazine article-interesting-Cayman Weight

    I was hoping it would be a little lighter, but wasn't holding my breath.....not that much of a surprise.

    I like the "when properly equipped" line......so in other words we're already spending more for a coupe version of the Boxster.....but have to spend a lot more in order for it to be "proper"? I thought that was the whole idea behind a Porsche in the first place.....you were supposed to be getting the best of everything. I guess if I order a Cayman without PASM and 19" wheels I just won't be proper....who cares about it being faster around the "ring"...big deal.

    Also like the "highly profitable" line also.....I think most of us alread suspected that.
