Default Added a Cayman S

Just picked it up yesterday. 07 Cayman S Carrera White and Cocoa full leather. Thought about selling the 964 and getting a 997, but couldn't bring myself to get rid of the 964 so decided to add the Cayman. Pics below...

Smart keeping the 964!
So the 964 is a daily driver, and the Cayman is for weekends?

Just kidding about daily duties...
But you did sell the M3 for the Cayman!

I also added a 2007 Cayman S, but sold the 964... Couldn´t afford to keep both, another 964 C2 is waiting for me in the future...I hope

I have an 07 Boxster S to go with the 964. They compliment each other extremely well as I'm sure you'll find out for yourself.

Very nice, congrats. I think the Caymans are great, and they are certainly becoming more popular as track cars. Enjoy!

Thanks guys...only thing it really needs is tires. The ones on it are in great shape, but they are michelin pilot alpin! The previous owner purchased it from a dealer in Omaha, and i guess they put these on it when they CPO'd it. if any of you know of a good used set of summer tires I would be interested. 18 inch wheels

Digging that chocolatey leather!
How about a detailed compare/contrast of the driving experience?

Cayman is sublime, the 997 a joke by comparison. You did the right thing.
