No bashing from me. I understand 110%. I have always felt the same way and my Cayman S is only 7 months old. That is why I placed my order recently for a 2011 911S. Not only did I place this order but this car is very loaded. Did Meteor with Carrera Red leather with deviated black carpets. The option list is long and since it is not in front of me I could not even remember everything I did. I am very excited about my delivery in July. As you said you love your Cayman as do I but I also would stop and look every time a 911 would drive by me. I almost did a turbo but thought this may be a little over the top and I am very happy with my order for the S. I hope that you can make the move one day if that is truly what you want. Be sure to look for pictures sometime in late July if nothing changes with my delivery date.I hate to admit this, especially here, but a base Carrera. Not because I do not love everything about my Cayman S. Not because I think the Carrera is a better driving car. It is because ever since I was a kid I have wanted one. There is something about the Carrera that each time I see one it makes me want one more and more. I think the Cayman S is an awesome car but next to a speed yellow Carrera I wouldn't look twice at the Cayman. My decision to buy a CS was because it made better financial sense at this point in my life. I have the Porsche experience without the 100k price tag. But I really do love my Cayman. I'm just being honest but let the bashing begin!
