It's not a spy shot people. It's a photoshopped Cayman. Someone's more realistic version of an artists rendering.

Hey man is this a fact that its a photo shopped cayman? Cause I think everyone thought it was cayman-ish except for one comment in the original thread, so it would be funny if it was in fact a photo shopped cayman......

I looked for a comparable angle on a Cayman, on a quick search this was about the best I found:


While the two are very similar the roof line looks quite different as do the window sizes, the width of the back end so on. I'd say it is very similar in appearance but I'm not convinced it is a Cayman PS'd on to a Ferrari.

Looks like the illegitimate offspring of a one-night-stand between a Cayman and a Lotus Elise.

These are not pictures of an actual car. Look at the pictures in Windingroad.com. Do you really think Ferrari had a car this complete out on the public road (next to a nice mountain lined lake no less) for the press to picture and presumably drive 3 years before it's release? PHOTOSHOP

That thing would be awesome though. I think it looks even better than the Cayman. :flame: But because it'd be a Ferrari, easily twice as much as the Cayman...

I'm hoping if I mate my Boxster with my girlfriends VW Beetle, an Audi with a stylish design will be born... :P

(I know, I know, an Audi with a stylish design sounds crazy, but it's worth a try)

I've always though Audi made the best looking sedans. They lead the industry if you ask me.

I was joking around...

If you ask me, Nissan leads the industry with the Maxima and Altima and they have styling that is in line with my taste. Just my preference/opinion...

well no matter what badge that car has upfront it looks nice.

but would everyone be all hyped up if it was a Kia logo?
