I still don't understand all these comparisons involving the Cayman R. Just because it's a performance car introduced within roughly the same period doesn't mean you should be drawing up comparisons.
Let's see: on one hand, we've got the 1M; a four seater, front-engined sports coupe. On the other, a two-seater, mid-engined sports car that costs (according to Sutcliffe in the vid) 12k pounds more. Hardly a comparison if you ask me, but I'm sure it was made due to the circumstances of these cars' time of introduction.
Give me the Cayman R any day of the week if we're forgoing practicality.

Hold out for the BRZ STI or... Rocket Bunny FRS. Update: Scratch that. I've got a 2015 5.0/6MT with my name on it.
