Wonder how accurate that is? It looks like it could be the next Cayman....

It'll come in any color you want if you have the green.

I'll bet Ferrari is losing as much sleep as Porsche did when this car debuted with the marketing campaign, the Porsche killer, then aimed at the 914.

Why not just drop the 3.6 engine from the 997 GT-3 (409 hp) into the existing Cayman? Seems a lot easier than starting over from scratch and the end result is going to about the same anyway.

Ghostrider, 35 years ago I actually owned an X-19 and in that same, hideous, pea green colour! Brings back memories - of air locks in the cooling system, blown head gaskets and rust! As to the proposed 'Ferrari Killer' - little doubt it will be capable of that in terms of performance, but lets face it, many of those who buy Ferraris really aren't interested in the numbers. In addition, does anyone else find the styling a little less than inspired? To me, the rear profile looks like they attempted to graft on the rear of a 911 to a different body form just so that people would recognize that it was a Porsche.
