    New picture of Cayman

    I found this on the C&D site. I do not like convertibles, so I have been waiting for this car for a while. I think it looks great.

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Looks like it's gonna be a soft-back
    I like the fact that they try to cover up the headlights, intakes and back. Who are they kidding? We all know it's based on the 987, so not really a suprise that it will look like it..?

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Looks awesome!

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Sure looks like a turbo 997 (just kidding)

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Thanks for posting. I like my cover too...

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Yeah that looks good. I'm really curious where the pricing will pan out with this new car. Where will it fall compared to the current Boxsters. I'm sure they'll sell every single one they make with little effort.

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Interesting...

    Most spyshots and photoshops so far have shown a fastback design with maybe a lifting hatch. But I can almost imagine a pair of GT-like buttresses under that soft top rear camouflage.

    I can't wait to see the final car!

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    thanks for the pic.. very interesting

    Maybe so, maybe not. If Porsche puts the starting price between $55k and $60K (where they want it to be) then I'll be taking back my deposit and looking elsewhere. Sure they may sell, but will you be getting your monies worth or just adding to Porsches bottom line for a car that should cost less than the drop top.....even with some added power?

    As was reported earlier on this board a focus group was held concerning the new coupe and according to second hand information.....not too many people were thrilled with Porsches idea of a starting price. The concensus was that even with the upgraded power "it" should sell for $2.5K less than a Boxster S.....makes great sense to me. Now if Porsche will only listen......

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    The rims look pretty cool

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    are those the same front lights as in the 987 or 997 I cannot tell?

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    How can you say it looks great if you didn't see it yet?
    The car on the picture is heavily camouflaged.

    You don't like convertibles? Why didn't you buy a Boxster with hardtop, I know several Boxster owners who never removed the hardtop because they don't like roadsters/convertibles too.

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    the wheels are standard Box S 18s!!!!

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    What's your problem RC? I think it looks great from the picture, of course I haven't seen it. A hardtop on a vert and a coupe are not even close to the same thing. Do you have some kind of issue with the concept of this car, and why the hostile response to my simple post of a picture?

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    RC's response doesnt look hostile to me.

    I happen to agree with RC, it's good to see pics like this, but i dont see how anyone can say it looks great when it doesnt actually show anything new.

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    I concur...can't really tell what it looks like with the rear covered up.

    but heck...people can still like it. Maybe a coupe with the fabric top

    I'm betting it's an El Camino-like design. Who's with me? You guys are so serious. Maybe I need to change.

    Sorry RC, this is the worst idea I ever ever heard about!

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    RC's been smokin from my stash!
    WORD UP baby! Wanna ride in my bling-bling-2dolla-ho-hustler mobile?

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Correction - all spy pics have shown a lifting hatch.

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Here comes my bad english into play... what is a lifting hatch?
    -Joost-

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Not that my English would be any better but I'd say the 996 Targa has sort of a lifting hatch.

    My "problem" is that I loose too much time around here.
    Hostile? Well, why do you think we have the simleys for? Decoration? Hostile would have looked like this or this but this means "sarcastic".

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    ahh, so a lifting hatch is a rear window that can be lifted... ok, thanks for helping me out guys!
    -Joost-

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    I guess most hatches can be lifted...otherwise they aren't of much use, are they?

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Hey dr phill... now don't confuse me, I thought I understood!
    -Joost-

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    Why the heck would you wanna use the hatch on a 911??
    I mean, people would have to lean over like 2-3 feet to even reach the edge of the opening???

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    hehehe good point DrPhil

    Re: New picture of Cayman

    I had a hatch on my 3-generation RX-7. Never cared for it much in an otherwise perfect machine! Three Porsche employees on Gustavmahlerstr tried to buy it from me! Pardon the RX-7 bragging, but I love that car still!!!



    Mine was black, but my wife hides the pictures from me.
