    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    993Targa:

    Front looks really good, still a bit worried about the roofline..

    I'm worried about the back. From the spypics it appears as if it looked exactly like the Boxster's end. I was hoping for a  slightly modified rear bumper.


    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    Very nice but that angle can hide alot of nasties..

    eventually the Caymen will morph into the new 911...a bit like the Polo becoming a Golf or the BMW 1er into the 3er...each better than the orginal angry

    Agreed, the 981 Cayman S will probably have the same power as the 997/1 Carrera (non S), and the 991 Carrera's engine is mounted further forward than the 997....Smiley

    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    The new Cayman just is not that exciting because we know the platform is restricted - I.e. Porsche wont allow it to be faster than the base 991. History repeating itself. 

    The low key launch is a good thing. 


    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    IMO the new Cayman S with 325 HP on the superb new Boxster platfrom will be a very exciting sportscar and super fast point to point. The Carrera 991S was not faster than the old Cayman R in the Autocar comparison on the track.

    Many owners have the attitude of " my HP is larger than yours" and buy the bigger engined cars but what % of those are competent enough or are given the opportunity frequently enough to use the extra power?

    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    In L.A, now and will attend Porsche press conference in a few hours.  Will try to post pics and impressions later today.

    U.S.debut of 991 Carrera 4 models today as well, and rumor is that Panamera sportback is here ( I have my doubts).  Will keep folks posted...


    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    Another picture from me:

    Actually there is no surprise about the look of the new Cayman, but I like it very much. kiss

    Can't wait to see the live shots. Looks great.


    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed


    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    Very nice. Simple Porsche styling that will prove timeless and tense dynamic surfaces.

    Ideally however, Porsche should have differentiated the rear lights/spoiler theme from the Boxster's.

    IMO, this tail lights/rear spoiler theme fits/looks better on Cayman than Boxster, thanks to the steel roof lines.

    I tend to agree. It looks more homogeneous on the coupe.

    My point was that they should think of something different in either case.

    It looks a bit too "cute" for my liking. Strangely I think the Boxster is the cooler looking car...


    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    The Cayman comes off as too much of a hardtop version of the Boxster compared with the previous generation.

    could be, but I think its a bit due to the weird angles of these press pictures that make the rear look a little off. 

    I quite like it .

    I'm sure that there will be an aggressive Sport design, Aerokit or whatever option, for some 4.000 EUR Smiley

    Re: Virtually undisguised 981 Cayman Thread Closed

    Looking good. No surprises, but in my opinion, that's a good thing.
    It makes sense to me to move the boxster and cayman closer to each other, to form a more consistent product lineup.

    I did a very quick mock up of an R version. I hope they don't wait until 981.2 C to launch this variant.
