that's amazing looking. too bad it will probably be closer to $100g's when I configure it to the spec I would want


also, ibf all the fanbois who think the M3 is better than GTR's and Ferraris, much less a pissant Cayman

We had a cayman r and that car was amazing. I just had to get rid of it at that time due to impracticality. But in due time we will get another for sure. I hope to see this live tomorrow at the LA Auto Show.

Thanks for the info I figured one can make almost anything happen with the almighty dollar

Yeah, especially seeing the Bay Bridge empty like that - its obvious some arrangements where made to facilitate the shoot........

Cayman looks nice

Yeah, I think the car is underpowered in any form which makes the S the go to car and realistically its 85 to 95k depending on how many boxes you check. At that price point when I look around at what else is available it gets hard (for me) to imagine pulling the trigger on the Cayman.

I do like the car a great deal though and I've long thought they give this one more power 911 sales would plummet.

I'm glad the new cayman doesn't have them. I'm not a fan of the LEDs that are plastered on every car nowadays.

From the web site:

"In classic Cayman fashion, the circular front light units with LED daytime running lights and position lights are integrated in the front air intakes. The taillights also employ LED technology for increased visibility and an unmistakable appearance – day and night."

Not too difficult to keep it at 80k or so.
What else would you be looking at in the 80-90 k range in a light sports car with handling and quality as good as the Cayman?
