    Porsche Carmine Red 991.2 C4S vs. Guards Red 981 Cayman

    At another mall yesterday. As I was parking next to the 911, a grey GT3 was leaving the lot! Personally, I like the rear end of the 911 much more than the Cayman - it has a smoother and more refined design. I have never been a fan of those big googly tail lights and that weird pinched back on the Cayman/Boxster. However, I think I prefer the side and front profiles more on the Cayman/Boxster.

    Great comparison photos. They really highlight how different the two platforms are. I love the look of both but prefer the smaller, more svelte 981.

    Surprisingly, if you compare the dimensions, they are pretty much the same size. The base 911 is about 5 inches longer (but has a shorter wheelbase) and weighs a couple of hundred pounds more, likely due to the larger engine, extra turbocharger and rear seats. Width and height are nearly identical. Like you I love the look of both, but I think I prefer the looks of the 911. however, I like the mid-engine in the Cayman more.

    As much as I love the Carmine Red, I would pick the Cayman everyday of the week!
