Porsche Cayman

Splitting the difference between Boxster and 911. The lines of this car just really do it for me. I love the wasp-waist / cokebottle proportions.

For 60 grand, I'd probably get a WRX, a Tacoma, and a Speed Triple (and have some change left over) though.

And then there's this asshole...

It does look bad azz from the rear. The price tag is still a little steep.

Re: Porsche Cayman

I don't own one, but would love to have any Porsche. If I were spending the bucks though, I'd probably rather have a drop-top.

Re: Porsche Cayman

Give me an S2000 and I'll spend the change on a dirtbike and an old 4x4 to haul it around in.

Re: Porsche Cayman

nah, I'd still take the cayman... Around here, you are just in a honda. A cayman is another whole league...

I can't wait to see one in person... (I'm eyeing this, the new 2007 Infiniti GTR and the M3 as my next cage purchase)

Nice... for $60K I would grab an M3 hands down.

+1 on the M3. Better performance, and you can take 3 friends with you.

Re: Porsche Cayman

Man that's a hot looking coupe. I swore I'd never buy an expensive car. Wisdom got the better of me a few years back and I walked away from a 911 purchase. But I feel the call again after seeing that article. Must resist stupid purchases....

That's an annoying thing about German cars. You have to pay extra for the cd player, cupholders, clock....
