    Two Red Cars Side by Side, both begin with the letter “C”: Camaro vs. Cayman 981

    I saw this red Chevrolet Camaro RS on the outskirts of the mall parking lot close to where I was parked and thought I would drive up beside it and take some photos. While I was taking photos, three enthusiastic teen boys walked by and asked me about the car. They were also interested in the frunk and trunk so I opened them up to show the space. They asked jokingly if they could have a ride but instead I invited them to sit in the car. They were very excited and took pictures of themselves. They had no interest in the Chevy.

    Both the Camaro and Cayman have 6 cylinders (3.6L vs. 2.7L) and RWD, but one car is a monstrous heavyweight at 3750 lbs and the other a svelte 2888 lbs.

    (It was a rainy and dreary day this morning, and I still have my winter tyres on though I did not drive it in the winter.)

    Great photos of two nice cars. It’s interesting how much larger the Camaro looks.

    "Monstrously heavy" is a relative thing. I went to a Rennsport track day yesterday with a friend of mine. Rather than bring his 911 Turbo, he brought one of his other cars....He tracked it with the rest of us and at the end of the day, one of the pro drivers who was hanging out at the track asked if he could take the car out for a couple of laps. He was impressed!

    This is my mate's Silver Wraith waiting for it's next sortie on the track.
