    Re: Cayman RS- First pic!

    No further tech details other than the 450 hp number.
    The race Cayman S seems to be a good package. Just a couple of days after it's first roll-out on the track it participated in the 24h race on NBR. It started from # 15 on the grid and improved to # 10 during the race when it was involved in a race accident and couldn't continue due to the damages
    Just as a reference: appr. 220 starters in the race, of which only 140 finished (quite normal for this material killing endurance race).

    Re: Cayman RS- First pic!

    I think the Cayman is picking up momentum as the "driver's Porsche", esp in the racing arena. There are just more and more references to the Cayman as a/the car Porsche should be racing, despite Porsche's desires to the contrary. This racing RS is something that will make Porsche very uneasy, especially if it succeeds. Of course, I am sure there are elements inside Porsche that are rooting for the Cayman to excel. I bet there are lots of interesting and contentious meetings inside Porsche about market niches. Will Porsche kill the Cayman if this continues to avoid damaging the 911's superiority?

    "Will Porsche kill the Cayman if this continues to avoid damaging the 911's superiority?"

    Or will the next major 911 (ie after the facelift we have already seen) have the engine in the "right" place?
    That is where I put my money.

    Re: Cayman RS- First pic!

    You mean merge the 911 and Cayman lines? A mid-engined 911? That would be the same as cancelling the 911 to the 911 faithful; it would be rebadging the Cayman as a 911.

    Who wants to see a "mere" Cayman defeating the uber-expensive F430 on the sports car racing circuit? <raises hand>

    "That would be the same as cancelling the 911 to the 911 faithful; .."
    well, don;t worry, they already did that when they replaced 993 with 996 - also they secretly move the engine forward bit by bit over the years anyway.

    Where do you put the rear seats

    Re: Cayman RS- First pic!

    Not a RS but close enough for me. The Cayman GTR. I drove it last week and it is VERY quick. 400+HP, 3.8L with X51, Aero Cup front end, Cross coilover suspension, and a LOT of other goodies. This is a serious track weapon and is still street legal.



    Re: Cayman RS- First pic!

    Not a fan of the front side.

    Neither am I. They definitely should've kept it looking like a Cayman.

    Re: Cayman RS- First pic!

    The 911 is turning more into a GT with every model change, maybe the Cayman can take over the roll of the no compromise sports car?
