    Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    These scans are from todays edition. Also, Porsche have started mailing a 25 page Cayman S brochure to customers who have their names on the waiting list. As soon as I receive my copy, I'll scan it and post it on here.

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    Thanks Atlantis for scanning all these fine articles.

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    Yes....thanks much for the scan....

    The article is a little too much on the Rah-Rah side for me though....like it was a Porsche PR guy that wrote it. Looking forward to the actual road tests in the future though.

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    Yup, thanks a lot...!
    Am I the only one btw who does NOT DISlikes the fog lights?

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    I think the fogs look better when you actually see the other elements below them. The attached capture from the Porsche web special shows what I mean

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    Yep you are right!;)

    Forget the common fog lights, the roof needs some helium let out of it.

    All joking aside, maybe the Cayman looks hot in person
    and I hope they make a genuine GTS version.

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    IT Weighs 5 kg more!
    Why would it weigh more.
    "of course it should weigh more, it has a roof!" ha ha

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    35k on the way????

    the added weight, the extra $$ over the Boxster S is a mystery...

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    Many Thanks.

    Hey Atlantis, do you mind posting the scans about the facelifted murcielago?

    Thanks..

    Woshhhhhhh

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    Thanks Atlantis. I wonder what the standard cayman will look like, single exhaust and two grill bumper? Can't believe the Pounds35k though. The boxster and s have a Pounds6kish difference, so probably Pounds37kish is more likely. If only we knew how long it would take for the second model is to be launched, bearing in mind it was present at the US customer clinics.

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    the foglights really emphasize the alligator theme...

    personally, i liked some of the spyshot/early photoshops better.

    i am underwhelmed by the real thing, it isnt really that sexy, the roofline seems awkward. the hatch back ruins the line a bit as well. i would have bought one in a heartbeat if you could see the engine instead.

    (still on the list to get one) i LOVE cars, can't get enough of them. each new one is like a new relationship.

    that could be an optional choice to have a silver air inlet?

    No worries, I'll post them tonight in the sports car board

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    So it's been confirmed a UK price of Pounds44k...overpriced, overweight, underpowered and waste of time as RC commented before.

    I don't care what excuses Porsche come up with but there's simply no excuse to charge a premium over the Boxster S, true the power is up by 15bhp but simply not enough. By the time you spec the thing up, you're edging close to Pounds50k, next year you can bag yourself a 996 TT for that which is what I'll be planning to do or how about a mk1 GT3 for under Pounds50k? I know what I would have...and it's definately not a Cayman.

    It's sad but I think you're righ Lavaman.
    If one doesn't really care about being the first owner of a car, there is a lot to get on the second hand market for a well specced Cayman S. Bc let's not fool ourselves here, by the time you've added Full leather, Auto aircon, Bose, PCCB, etc, this car goes beyong Pounds55k.
    You can get a great 996 for that price.

    Although I agree it seems too expensive compared to a Boxster S - not everyone wants to spec it up to 55k - i think the average on a Boxster S takes it from 38 base to 43, and also not everyone wants a 2nd hand 996. People will still buy this, if it's not for you then that's ok, but it wil be for others.

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    I'll vote for that 996 GT3 MKI :-)
    Price slowly going down here...

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    how much is the boxster in pounds?

    as the lower power cayman costs 35k...
    are they almost the same?

    The Boxster is around Pounds32k in pounds, so the base Cayman will be slightly more (if the rumoured Pounds35k is correct)

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    Thanks a lot man

    I assume you feel the same about the 997? Cayman is faster around Nurmburgring.

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    But who knows for a fact that the Cayman is faster than the 997 around Nurburgring?
    This seems to be a classic case of "spin" - if you say it enough times people will believe it.
    But where is the evidence?
    Nothing I have seen, just a lot of people quoting the same rumor. Or the same rumor recycled. Or the same recycled rumor recycled again....

    Re: Autocar Cayman Article Scans

    thanks
