U.S. News & World Report review

I think they liked the Boxster... and the Cayman wasn't far behind.

Yea, high praise. Seems they especially liked the 'V-6'.

Interesting that they liked it so much, but still slotted the corvette between it and the cayman.

Probably based upon price for the most part.

I SOOOOO WANT AN A5!!! I have a tricked out A4 that I bought new 9 years and 180k miles ago. It's just running to darn good to think about getting rid of. But man, those new A5's are awesome!

I've been thinking the same thing. They aren't on the lots yet but a bored salesman at the dealership offered to take me out to see a special-order S5 that was being prepped for delivery. Nice looking car. I think it was probably better than the pictures. I dodn't go to any of the auto shows last year so I hadn't seen anything in person before (if they even had a real one). It's a nicer car than a 335i, but that extra HP and the twin turbo engine of the BMW is tough to beat.
