I'll bite. That thing looks incredible. One of the best looking modern Porsches. Perhaps that'll be my next car.

It's here because M & P-cars are known for playing together.
Additionally most enthusiast at this price range do a lot of cross shopping of both Marques.

Watching the live unveiling! I really like it.

I wish the Cayman had a bit more power. I realize what it weighs and yes, I want a better hp/lb ratio.

Cool ... Something to look forward too

What I like to know is, how do they manage to shoot the video without all the normal traffic ... Anyone know?

ibf Wolf posts about how epic this car will be; how it is pure Porsche greatness and somehow he has already driven one and it is better than any Ferrari or Lambo out there.

Large funded film studios usually shut down the road by contacting the city. Even the car commercials with traffic are fully staged or on a Hollywood set. Depending on the budget, even some car shows (for example Battle of the Supercars) will shut down a twisty mountain road to have the hosts drive on it "safely."

It is only the (crazy) independent film makers whom are hanging out a window in a 5D Mark II in traffic, not that I have ever done that before!

Very nice, based upon the reviews of the new Boxster this car should be brilliant. Can't wait to see what the Cayman R will bring to the table.
