    Re: Cayman S Now Official

    Since the Cayman teaser reminds us of the word, may we also expect RMS failures from the 295 bhp 3.4L engine to uphold "tradition" as well?

    Re: Cayman S Now Official

    lol


    So is this a new 3.4 or the old 996 engine?

    Re: Cayman S Now Official

    It's probably the old 996 engine, but obviously Porsche engineers have been working hard for the past few years to detune it so that it is appropriate for the Boxster

    Re: Cayman S Now Official

    I'm sure it actually has 300HP, this is just marketing to keep that gap wide enough...

    But a 997 driver will get sweaty hands with a Cayman in his rear view mirror

    Re: Cayman S Now Officially Ridiculous

    Should be named Boxster RS Coupe. Its only a coupe version of a Boxster, so creating a seperate identity for it shows just how pointlessly stupid and greedy they are.

    A Cayman S will be only a few K less than a stripper 997 coupe.

    Why bother?

    For people who want a shape closer to a 911 coupe and the handling advantage of a mid-engined layout.

    According to what I've read, the disadvantage is it still may not have the sophistication of the 911's rear suspension, correct? This means, like the Boxster, the Cayman may be more affected by road corner imperfections at high speed than a 911. Is this true?

    Re: Cayman S Now Officially Ridiculous

    It may have more to do with basic layout.

    A mid engine car has different polar inertia
    and is ultimately better for a smooth race track.

    A rear engine car has better traction and better handling
    in rougher conditions. Its rear weight bias can be
    a definite benefit.

    As for a picking a 60,000 dollar Cayman,then adding on
    4-6K in options, versus buying a stripped 997 at 69K with just heated seats,id take the 997, you simply get more car for your money.
