    Saw a Cayman Under Its Own Power

    I had seen the Cayman and the Cayman S back in January where I got to sit in them and compare it to other competing models. This morning, I was picking up my 997 at the dealer and they had a Cayman there. They were driving it around the street. (All dealers have one PCNA Cayman for show, the sticker clearly is stamped "PCNA Car Not to be Sold"). I like it better than before. I love my 997, but I actually like the looks of the Cayman maybe a little better (go figure!). The sound was Porsche but definitely not 911. Now if they would only upgrade the interior to a 997 style...

    which dealer do u go to?

    Re: Saw a Cayman Under Its Own Power

    Every dealer should have one by now. The one I saw was clearly not a new car. The tires looked like the car has been through some nice cornering.

    I thought the 997 and Cayman/Boxster shared the same interior?

    Not quite, the air inlets of the A/C have a different shape, the speedo cluster is also different, incl. the missing oil temp/oil pressure gauges (997) and the different lettering.
    The Cayman S is something new, interesting enough, new but never really succesful models like the 944/968 and especially the 928 were a huge success in the US. But in the end...I just hope the Cayman doesn't share the same destiny but times have changed and the Cayman has not been developped to replace the 911, a huge mistake made with the 928.

    Do you recall any visual differences between the two?
