Ferrari is the top of the FIAT group. They won't make a car to face this beautiful porsche.<p>The brand which will present an equivalent car is Alfa-Romeo : the Brera will be a high quality model which will be a good alternative to this boxster.

Per autocar<br> <br> <br> <br> <p><br>Porsche is heading back to its sporting roots with a new 300bhp coupé and, this week, Autocar can tell you how. The new C7S, hitherto known as the Boxster Coupé and the GTS, will endear Porsche, a company whose production is now dominated by the Cayenne offroader, to a new generation of driving enthusiasts.<p>Packing 300bhp and stiffly-tuned suspension, Autocar can reveal that the C7S will be powered by a 3.4-litre flat six, and will cost around £50,000 when it arrives in the UK later this year. A cheaper and less powerful 3.2-litre C7 will join it, as well as a more focusses C7 Club Sport to appeal to the real hardcore.

As you said, Porsche will add a new name for this car.<br>But it won't be Panamera...<p>Nice idea but not.<br>Do you know why ?<p>Because the name must begin by a "C".<br>Your name is too long since you have 8 letters in your name.<br>Brand name strategy consists in one word with "C" + 6 letters.<br>That's why the project is named "C7" = C + 6 = 7 letters !<p>This is right for "Carrera" and "Cayenne" too...<br>"C" + 6 letters...<p>This new model will only be launched in 1 version "S" with 295 BHP engine.<br>It will have a new front bumper/spoiler and little changes in comparaison with the Boxster...<p><br><BR><BR>

The best thing about the Boxster coupe is that it does not have the Boxster's problematic convertible top. Porsche seems to have dealt with some of the engine gremlins of the early Boxsters too. I can't help but wonder whether or not a successor to the 944 would have been a better choice. It seems that Porsche is totally into staying retro while trying to increase market share. Because they are so small in terms of units built they cannot place the Boxster $10,000 lower in price where it would really be a high seller. Consequently, at some point Porsche will likely need the protection of a larger automaker. I hope Porsche will be wildly successful with the Boxster coupe.

In German, it's called "Kaiman". For me, "Cayman" sounds great, even though it's probably too close to "Cayenne".<p>I wonder why they chose a new name for the Boxster Coupe. Back in 1997, people were complaining about the 996 and the Boxster sharing the same front end. Now, the Boxster and the Cayman will share the same front end...

Porsche for some reason feels that all of their vehicles must resemble the 911 somehow. It makes you wonder why a 1965 design is the only styling vocabulary that Porsche allows themselves. Granted there is risk for trying a new styling direction because your product line could wind up Bangled, but there is also a risk of using only one vocabulary to the point that your styling becomes a caricature. The Cayenne is an odd looking vehicle because of the 911 inspired nose. The Boxster coupe/Kaiman/Cayman/whatever could have benefitted from some stand alone styling. Instead it relies on the "new" boxster styling which is nearly imperceptible from the old boxster. The Porsche die hards will no doubt love the adherance to the 911 look at all cost approach, but I find it rather boring and predictable. Sportscars are the equivalent of "bling bling" in automotive world and Porsche's styling just isn't delivering the visual punch it needs to deliver.

As much as I love the car, the name is horrible - it's too similar to Cayenne, which makes the Cayman sound like it's some overweight, ugly hippo. Not good at all. Why not just Boxster Coupe or even just C7? Either one would've been better than Cayman.

Mzoltarp,<p>Your comment doesn't make a lot of sense. What about the 914, 924, 944, 928 and 968? Those all had distincitive designs.<p>When you see a BMW, Mercedes or Ferrari, there is no mistaking what it is, because they keep similar design traits across all of their vehicles. That's the goal of most manufacturers.<p>I like the Cayman design (hate the name though), and while it is similar to the 911, its distinctive in its own right.<p>This car is going to be a goldmine for Porsche.

mzoltarp
02-09-2005, 07:05 AM
Knutsaq,<br>My comments make perfect sense. The Porsches that you mention have long since been out of production so they do not count in this discussion of the current production models that DO mimic the 911 over and over. The Boxster / Cayman is really the modern equivalent of the 914-6. Porsche had a great product in the 944 but they chose to let it die instead of creating a new one. The 968 was just a 944 in drag. I miss the 944.

you might be right, but I've read in several German car mags that the name was chosen coz of these islands. That the islands were named so might be because of the caymans (I know them, in German, they're also just called "Kaiman") but the actual name Porsche chose was allegedly coz of the islands ...if you understand what I mean ...

<B>New Porsche Cayman S to be positioned between the Carrera and the Boxster</B> <p>Later this year Porsche AG will be extending its range of sports cars through the introduction of another outstanding model. This new two-seater coup will be based on the Boxster series but will be positioned in terms of performance and price between the Boxster S and the 911 Carrera. This positioning of the new model is also borne out by its six-cylinder boxer engine transmitting a maximum output of 295 bhp (217 kW) to the rear wheels. <p>As well as the characteristics and qualities typical of Porsche, this sporting two-seater will show outstanding style and superiority in its looks and appearance. The exceptional design of this car is further accentuated by its muscular design features, which convey a strong feeling of both power and agility. In addition, the new sports car not only fulfils the demands of Porsche customers in terms of sporting performance, but also in everyday practicality.<p>Reflecting its individual performance and styling, this new Porsche sports car will bear its own name: it will be called the Cayman S, thus ranking alongside the Carrera, Boxster and Cayenne model designations already so rich in tradition.<p>Introducing this name, Porsche is taking up a concept from the animal kingdom: the "Cayman" belongs to the crocodile family. Within this group of the world's largest reptiles, the "Cayman" is, however, a relatively small but very nimble athlete. The "Cayman" is acknowledged as a highly specialised hunter with strength and agility, quick reflexes and clear target orientation, a concept that not only embodies this new Porsche sports car, but also the Company as a whole.<p>The heart of the Cayman S is a new 3.4-litre power unit mounted midship in front of the rear axle. Benefiting from this mid-engine concept and an excellent power-to-weight ratio, the Cayman S is perfectly suited for the kind of performance so typical of Porsche: direct highly responsive steering and very dynamic handling. This new coupe will also be fitted with a class leading braking system allowing it to generate very high decelerative forces.<p>In summary, therefore, the combination of supreme power and performance in the Cayman S provides an unprecedented experience on the road: driving pleasure in its purest form.<p>A full technical specification, price and dates of introduction, will be announced after the official presentation of the Cayman S later in the year.<p>NOTE: press pics will be released later in the year. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0">

Personally, I think that Porsche should just call it the Boxter Coupe, thus making it a Boxter derivative. And instead of using it as a fourth model; develop a succesor to the 928, using the Cayenne V8. Cause I read somewhere that the Cayman is the fourth model Porsche was talking about: I think it was Autoweek.

Cayman is not the fifth model of the Porsche models - it is just another derivative of the Boxster. <p>The fifth model will hopefully be a four-seater 928 successor.

Since way back in the day (early 70's) Porsche has always been afraid of competing with itself. The 914-6 had the weakest possible motor to not out do the lowest 911.<p>That may have been fine back then, but now there are so many powerful competitors I find it foolish they don't offer a higher performance version of the Boxster for fear of losing sales of 911s. <p>What about losing sales to BMW Z4/MB SLK or not getting sales because the car is simply not fast enough. It is unpleasant to think that when buying a $$$ Boxster S you will have your hat handed to you by a new Vette and will not be able to dispatch a Mustang, or GTO or any number of much lesser cars these days. <p>I am not saying people cross shop these cars, what I believe is that it 'devalues' the Boxster in some enthusiasts eyes (mine included, and I own a Porsche) that the performance is somewhat lacking in light of all the performance machinery out there. Porsche should make a 3.6 Boxster and Cayman. <p>The 911 is iconic, if you want one, you will still buy one. <p>I fear this Cayman S is only priced so high because its performance is so near the 911, and not because it costs more to make than the Boxster S (which it shouldn't). As such, as much as I like the idea of this car, I wonder why it's so expensive. We'll see what else it has up its sleeze when it comes out.

Porsche needs to position the Boxster much lower in price given its performance or they need to give it Boxster S performance at the base price. The Cayman will be the best reason not to buy a 911. The base 911 should offer a mild turbo to give it an edge and a price justification. Any yes people do not cross shop Boxsters and Mustangs, possibly Corvettes, but that's not the point. As you imply, the stoplight grand prix is where it all gets played out. Years ago I would go hunting Porsche 944s in my Corrado VR6. No one cross shopped them, but the Corrado was able to make 944 owners wince.

I'll have to disagree with you Santemo. 911 has to follow its own agenda, its own set path. Which is evolution of that original 60's design, keep on making it better and better and still have that same basic shape. <p>Cayman is going to be along the lines of BMW M Coupe of late 90's or Lotus Exige. There is a difference to those cars...maybe they are more hardcore as opposed to civilized 911 or M3 which are becoming rich man's toy more than ever. Not necessarily a bad thing.<BR><BR>

I am just really impressed over the styling on the Cayman. Way to go, Porsche!<p>Don't get me wrong, the 911 is designed like a classic, but the Cayman... looks like a "future", more sleek 911 to me! Another Porsche success, first the Cayenne, the 997, the Boxster, and now, the Cayman <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/tuut.gif" BORDER="0">
