    for you guys

    found this the other day. That looks really nice, in fact, better than the 911. Too bad they can't give the platform the power it could use, 375 would be nice.

    looks mean. not quite my cup of tea, a bit too much black Smiley but still interesting. definitely will be a pain to keep clean!

     The smoked windows are something that isn't roadlegal here. I wonder if he has also darkened the windscreen Smiley

    The Cayman looks terrible. Everything is wrong on it, rims, lights and tinted windows Smiley

    Don't worry John. I am not going soft in the brain, the 928 still rules above them all BUT, everyone i have read who have driven both cayman and 911 say cayman is the better driver.  I have only driven 911's incl. 997, never driven a cayman. The cayman should be better with its mid-engine layout.

    I have sat in some cayman's though. I like the cayman interior better and I do think the cayman looks sleeker and more unique. The 911 is still so beetle like. unless you go wide. The 911 is a fun car but it does not have an exotic look and the seating position is like a normal sedan.Smiley

    The seating position of the Cayman and 911, including relative positions of seat, steering wheel and pedals, are identical. Smiley

    Neither the black Cayman or the black Lotus are my taste. Smiley

    As for your statement quoted above racerx, I couldn't disagree more my friend.

    While reading the opinions of others (who are expert at reviewing new cars) is obviously very important, there is simply no substitute for trying the car out for oneself before one can form a view. Otherwise it remains a purely theoretical analysis ... a bit like trying to figure out what it must be like to have sex from reading articles written by sex therapists! SmileySmiley

    Actually drive a Cayman. THEN form your view. You may find it's a revelation and the best thing ever. Heaven forbid, even better than your undoubtedly great 928. OR you might find that it is great but ultimately not challenging enough?

    In theory, a 911 should never handle well. The engine is in the back, the power goes to the rear wheels, 62% of the weight is on the rear axle. On paper, it is all wrong. But, after 4 decades of obsessive engineering, it is perfect.

    Or, as others have put it, it is a triumph of development over design. Smiley

    The Cayman yes... but not this "pimp my ride" edition. About the Lotus just if you want to be kind of ... spoiling the fun with a Renault 25 gerbox....
