Exactly. I get shit mpg's on my car and I don't even think twice about it. I'm sure the Vette will yield better gas mileage.

As someone else said, the hood is really light. We sat and opened it up and it weights nothing. It's huge and bulky though...had a hard time seeing over the sides of it. Kinda felt like I was driving a bat mobile.

Are they really the same size????? Hard to believe.

I guess it may be true as the 997 has rear seats and the engine in the you have a lot of car behind the drivers seat.

The Cayman however...that's a nice car! I would buy a Cayman S ASAP!
