    Has he let you take it out for a spin yet? If not, rob the keys and go for a joyride.

    Not pouring cold water on anything here, it's a beautiful car but it's not the 'S' and in white (in my humble opinion) maybe a touch hairdresser. So i wouldn't call it a beast to be honest. Don't take that personally, just saying!

    Nice car though but would you REALLY have it over an RS TT if it was released? Come on now....

    Difference is about 9k I think, Cayman is about 35k,Cayman 'S' starts at about 44k.

    Fair enough then, it is quite a big jump.

    It is but MY GOD what a difference. The difference between the 2 is pretty much a good car and a great car. It's like comparing an S4 to an RS4.

    What's the difference though? Just more power or is the S a better setup?, does it have an LSD?

    I believe it's a 2.7 compared to a 3.2. Not sure on the horsepower, obviously it'll be a fair wack more in the 'S'. As i understand it, the 'S' does have a slightly improved/tweaked set-up. Suspension, exhaust etc. (correct me if i'm wrong, i could be!)
    As previously said... It's a big jump in price so it's all accounted for in various improvements.

    Dont forget those prices are for a standard spec... Your looking at 40k and 50K easily.

    As a drivers car I think even the standard Cayman is going to be better, as an every day car the TT-S might well prove to be the better mileage muncher. But none of us have driven it yet so hard to say!

    I must say though, the Cayman in general has grown on me. The more i see it, the more i see it as a good stand-alone car and not necessarily a poor mans Carrera as i used to. Although for 50K with some nice extras i honestly couldn't justify buying a new one over a lightly used carrera,. Just makes no sense to me!

    Cayman S is a 3.4 kicking out 295bhp i think, not sure about any other differences,although I am sure there will be lots.

    I love the Cayman but it would have to be the 'S' for me otherwise I would be forever wishing for the more powerful car, it's one of the few cars that make me lust, I guess its because its in reach cost wise but not quite justifiable as a second car, I'm hoping for a nice used example in a couple of years but residuals are outstanding at the moment so I won't hold my breath, Gorgeous.
