Porsche already knows the Cayman S is better than the 911, and it must be positioned below the 911. They dont care!

The lap times for:

*Buttonwillow Configuration 13

*Willow Springs

Make no sense whatsoever and therefore are screwing the overall results.

For one, an S2000 and IS350 don't stand a chance in hell against the Cayman S unless the driver of the Cayman doesn't know how to drive. This is obvious.

Yeah someone needs to fix that false 16.8 sec (0-200kph) time for the E46 M3. The 09+ Cayman S blows that cars doors off to 124+mph.

A Porsche Cayman TURBO wouldn't be "spooky" behind the wheel because the engine is positioned forward the rear axle. The problem with the 911 is that the engine is placed all the way in the back behind the rear axle. The Cayman really is Porsche's best fundamentally set-up car. The problem is that if that openly admitted this it would upset a lot of current 911 owners’ and kill their market as it wouldn’t make sense. This isn’t to say that the 911 is a bad car just that it could be better with the engine forwards the rear axle like the Cayman. The Cayman is basically as mid-engine 911 with a lower power output and slightly shorter wheel base / no tiny back seat.

Made *** .. Porsche has got to realize the cayman is a better car than the 911 .. Instead of them making 15 different 911 models why not make the cayman turbo

Interesting proposition, Turbo BUT rear wheel driven, it would be very fast and challenging, a kind of a car that wouldn\'t tolerate anyone behind the wheel, just like old spooky 911 Turbos didn\'t.

I have a 2010 cayman s sports chrono plus package .. The launch control on this thing is sickkk and when you get into the high Rpms on the highway the engine sound and reponds like no other .. Now the steering and handling no other word then perfect .. I had a 2004 Benz clk 500 and 2007 jaguar s type R and I can say this car out performs them in every way . It\'s just so much fun to drive .. Why wont Porsche make a turbo model cuz it will be the best sports car every mean

The only Audi that comes even close to matching the Porsche Cayman S in terms of everything that matters is the Audi R8. The Audi TT-S and TT-RS are absolute CRAP by comparison. It\'s blasphemy to even mention those cars in the same sentence with the Porsche Cayman; I mean really? Those in the know understand that the mid-engine (where God intended) Boxster / Cayman line are superior to the 911’s full diaper – ass heavy 39/61 set-up. Why do you think Porsche keeps them neutered at no more than 320-330hp? Bingo! The only thing the ass-heavy 911 has on the Cayman is a bit of straight line acceleration and even so the Cayman S is still quicker / just as quick around most tracks via superior handling dynamics due to proper weight distribution. It’s not > The only reason you buy a Cayman is because you can’t afford a 911

it’s > You buy a Cayman because you get a superior vehicle for about 17k less

Why does the driven by time for the RING say \"Porsche with a ?\" ?
If Porsche recorded the time why not just remove the question mark?

@ jeyroslave with no means neceserry to ofend you i will they to you that coment you posted was rather stupid i mean come on an audi is useally abit more expensive thn bmws so why the hell would an audi be the alternative souloution to not being able to buy a bmw yeah thts right it wouldnt cause there similary priced cars and audi is nown for making luxury cars but there also nown for their raceing history and just as wel as porsche is nown for their racing history.And just cause audi competes on different ends of the market to porsche doesnt mean they cant make something on the same end of the market as porsche to compete with them so that doesnt make it a dumb comparison just cause the 2 brands are nown for makeing different types of cars but they still make cars that are in the same class of vehcles so yes audi tt s or audi tt rs vs porsche cayman s is a good comparison.

Jeyroslave  8y ago

But you are all comparing an Audi with a Porsche!! I mean one is just an Audi, that\'s something you buy when you can\'t even afford a BMW for God\'s sake.

you are talking about a manual cayman s a pdk with sport+ cayman s will SMOKE both of them not only in a strait line but on a track too im just loving how a boxster S pdk did a 10.3s (r&t) so would that be enough for you that the caymans with 10ps/less weight would smoke YOUR 11.1s tt-rs by one second to 160km/h not even getting to 200km/h no need to mention sport auto claimed 250km/h top speed/limited for the audi so the porsche will leave it in the dust and like i mentioned before it is faster than 275km/h.


User avatar

Georg  8y ago

one second at 200km/h is a huge distance of 56meters that are more than 10 car length...so Cayman S was smoked clearly.. ;-)


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

and this is what sport auto got when comparing tt-rs vs cayman s manual

0-200 km/h 18,6 s 17,5 s

so only one second vs a manual cayman s on the same day no need to mention that the tt-rs was limited to 250 km/h so even the cayman s manual would smoke it with the 277km/h claimed if not more...


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

TT was build from first date for the same speed.

then why 280km/h as an option??


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

the 10.7 still need to be updated to 10.6s...

and by the way the 275km/h for the caymans s pdk is at 7000rpm instead of under 7400rpm so expect more and what rpm is the 280km/h top speed of the tt-rs ??


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

the sport auto was against the manual cayman s this is what it should be like when both tested by ams

and no tt-rs would drive a caymans s out of sight http://www.fastestlaps.com/index.php?page_id=compare&car1=4924ff e0084fc&car2=_Audi_TT-RS_Coupe Straight line speed --tt-rs223 points cayman s223 points in fact the best car driver the cayman s would.

Compare both cars under same conditions and not the best ever reached result with the two TT-RS tests so far avaible

sportscars tested both under same conditions and 0-200km/h(125mph) the TT-RS was under the same conditions 2s faster, till topspeed the gap was getting bigger and bigger and bigger no chance for the Cayman S to stay in contact with the TT-RS... and the TT was build from first date for the same speed..
