Agreed the 'fu' is a bit strong and stupid, sorry.
No doubt that you could make the e46 go well, but as well as you could make a cayman go? I doubt it. Plus even at the age of 32, I'd never take a ride with a stranger!

I am impressed with the Cayman- Its practically a clone of the 911 though, so I think its just a waste of the company money. It may be a tad better, but thats just not worth it.

The Cayman has almost absolutely ZERO to do with the 911, so I don't know where i nthe hell you pulled that out of.

The Cayman is very close in specs with the Boxster. It's basically a hardtop Boxster in essence, with more power, but looks closer to the 911.

I have read many reviews, and guess what? Cayman vs 911

No.....The cayman IS a hardtop boxter. Not a new 911. The new 911 is the new 911.

They have many comparos with the Corvette Z06 against the Viper, does that mean they are based upon one another? NO.

The Cayman has probably less than 5% to do with the 997.

Poor example though ... the comparos indicate that while the cars may not be based on each other, they are in the same class.

first off....i love///amg - nice avatar
Secondly, i drove this car last weekend at the dealership. I've owned a Boxster and a 911....this car (cayman) is EXACTLY what you'd get if those two vehicles spawned a child!!!!

Nice...but starting aat 55K and upgradeable to over 70K...

I wouldn;t do it...but that's just me.
