    I think it looks good and it is probably a blast to drive. I don't think they should have offered a tiptronic transmission since the cayman is supposed to be a pure sports car.

    The porsche website has them up as well. Other than the foglights it's a much better looking car than the 911.

    given that the new boxster s is one of the most fun cars to drive with great handling, quick, and nice engine sound...the new cayman sould be all that and even more, being a lighter coupe with more horsepower ....sould be more fun to drive than the 997 .....

    Awesome looking. Now if only we can get a GT3 engine crammed in there and a trademark "Crazy Porsche Wing"

    Do you know what US sticker prices will be? If priced right, that dawg could sell! But, given that an S type Boxster is what, close to 60k US, and this is higher on the food chain, it's not going to pick up the Nissan/WRX crowd is it? More like an alternative to another Porsche model (cannibalism?) or what- AMG pint-sized MB coupe? What else?

    I really like it but hate the fog lights. I think there was a hyundai or something with those fogs a while back.

    (from Porsche Press Release)

    Porsche today revealed the first official images of its anxiously awaited new sports car -- the 2006 Porsche Cayman S. Based on the Boxster® series, the two-seat coupe incorporates dramatic new styling, a powerful 295 hp (SAE) engine, and features and options made popular by Porsche's current range of sports cars. It is positioned and priced between the Porsche 911® Carrera® and Porsche Boxster S.

    While easily recognizable as a member of the Porsche sports car family, the Cayman S has its own distinctive look. Among its unique styling features are its dynamic new coupe silhouette, aerodynamic upper windshield sill, curvaceous rear fenders, fog lamps integrated into the front air intakes, exclusively designed side air intakes, automatically extending rear spoiler, and newly styled dual sport tailpipes. Beneath the new model's distinguishing hatchback is a rear storage area twice the size (9.2 cu. ft.) of that found in the Boxster.

    The Cayman S's muscular 3.4-liter, flat-six cylinder engine propels the car from 0 to 60 mph in a quick 5.1 seconds and to a top track speed of an impressive 171 mph. The engine is equipped with the same VarioCam® Plus variable valve timing system as found on the 2005 911 Carrera. It allows the engine to produce its maximum torque of 255 ft. lbs. between 4,200 and 6,000 rpm.

    This engine power is transmitted through the Boxster S's standard six-speed manual transmission that has been enhanced for the Cayman S with shortened and more precise shift travel. Offered as an option, the five-speed Tiptronic® S automatic transmission system has been tuned specifically for the new model, incorporating unique electronic and hydraulic control maps.

    Handling and safety are enhanced with the fitting of 18-inch wheels and tires and the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system as standard equipment. The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system, which allows the driver to select between the comfort of a grand touring car and the track-ready precision of a genuine high-performance sports car at the touch of a button, is available as an option.

    The Cayman S will go on sale in the United States and Canada in mid January of 2006 at a price of $58,900 US
