Affordable sports car that feels like a Cayman???

Hmmm, cheap sports car in the horizon? What do you guys think?

Some quotes taken from the article:
"The primary benchmark for the FR-S was the Porsche Cayman." -Josh Jacquot, Senior Editor, Insideline.com

"And we see nothing wrong with a car that feels like a Cayman and costs half as much." -Josh Jacquot, Senior Editor, Insideline.com

Dont think youll find anything out there that drives or feels as good as a Cayman or Boxster. They truly are remarkable cars when it comes to handling and I doubt anyone will be touching them as they are the benchmark in that category and have been since inception.

Garage List
2008 135i  [3.00]
But it has Prius tires so it must be Porsche-like.
