    Side by Side


    Re: Side by Side

    I prefer the 997. Thanks for the side by side, Ron.

    Re: Side by Side

    i like the cayman somehow..

    but then also appears to be like a mini 996 c4s to me

    Re: Side by Side

    Side by side, I actually really like the curves of the cayman. Although I think the lines (especially wideness) don't stand out too much on straight side shots of the 997. I think I'll still take a 997TT !

    Re: Side by Side

    ...the lines of the 997 enjoy more fluidity and purity...IMHO...

    Re: Side by Side

    these are two fine and very different cars IMO

    Re: Side by Side

    997 is showing its age here against the lines of Cayman:w

    Re: Side by Side

    Classic lines on the top photo... the lower one, hm, a photo of the new Toyota MR2?

    Re: Side by Side

    If you saw what I saw at RUF, you might not want to badmouth this new toy...

    Re: Side by Side

    Again, my photoshop qualities leave me, but you'll get the idea: I think the Cayman would look a lot better from the side when it looks more like this:

    You could achieve that look without Photoshop if you were to take the photo from a lower angle or move the camera closer and use a wider angle lens. The camera perspective has a lot of influence on the appearance of a profile. In Ron's comparison above the two cars are shot from slightly different camera angles so that changes our perception of the comparitive profiles a little bit.

    Slightly different camera angles; too bad...

    I think the Cayman would look much better if the camera was a bit higher, as it is in the case of the 911 (notice how much of the 911 driver door interior panel is visible; or the front hood.)
    The pictures posted elsewhere, with journalists standing around, show the difference camera height makes. The roof appears less bulbous for one.)
