    LA Auto Show 2012 - Porsche 981 Cayman and Cayman S official debut photos

    Here it is after months of teasing, the official new Porsche Cayman. Porsche did a pretty good job keeping the official car from being leaked for as long as they did. Well, it's here and the car is beautiful and just as expected. The design is much more masculine than the previous generation. It generated considerable attention and the Porsche hall was packed. Additionally, Porsche as usual had the best food and drink selection of any manufacturer at the show treating their guests in style.

    Porsche knows how to put on a show and treat the media well. Simply a superb unveiling, well done, and a great car.

    Really nice looking car....

    My mother just purchased a Panamera. Porsche's have a very distinct feel to them. Id probably take an M over either though (roughly same or less cost too).

    Should be, just barely.

    ^ For the first time I actually like the Boxster's appearance, they did a great job. Thought the Cayman would look better then it does.

    Nah, this looks way better than the boxster. But then again...I hate convertibles.

    Some of the pics are taken from weird angles. Kinda throwing off the look.

    Ya I'm not the best photographer but also was working with little space, too many people.

    Touched the photos up hope they look better than normal.

    Oh, thank goodness! From some of the leaked photos it looked too... front engined. Also it looked like they may have eliminated the Cayman "hips". These pics look much better, imo.

    I actually really like the look of the Cayman, and also like the looks of the Boxster... Everyone thinks the Panamera is the ugly duckling of the Porsche family, and in some photos, I might agree with that statement. However, every time I see a Panamera in person, I find myself liking them regardless of color/angle/etc... They are cool cars. On the other hand, I do think that they need to upsize the brakes on this car, or downsize the wheels. For a proper sports car like this, it almost looks like a typical ricer wheel/brake setup. Huge +size wheels with tiny rotors... For the price of this car, it's unacceptable to have that look, but maybe it will look different in the real world like that Panamera.
