did I miss it.... or did they forget to mention that the Cayman's base price is about $15K more....and effectively more given Porsche's "everything is optional" pricing?

yea you did missed it! haha, jk. Beside the price however, the Cayman is a great car. My co-worker has the Cayman S. and OMG that thing rocks. Not particularly the fastest car and surely isn't faster than our cars on the straight. But my god does it build your ego. That is one fine car, if I can afford it...

yeah...i have heard great things about it and don't doubt it is a league apart in ride and handling dept. The mid engine layout gives it a big advantage.

They were fair to the 135i. It's a small muscle car/GT. And they will sell everyone they make, b/c having so much energy in a car that small must feel sensational

They mentioned the prices on the first page

I think it was a good review for the 135i as the people looking to buy it are the people looking for the shaved weight, speed and functionality.

I really want to go test drive a Cayman and see what all this steering greatness is about.
