    The new viper looks awesome. Heck, old vipers are awesome. One of my clients has one. I need to ask her to take me for a spin one day.
    The Cayman is a damn good looking car. I always thought the 997 looked a little bit better than the 987, but now I think the 981 looks a little bit better than the 991. Looks are a relatively minor consideration when i buy a car, but i can still comment.

    and with that flat motor, you'll have a nice low center of gravity for tight cornering

    Have you guys seen the Nissan Deltawing?! I bet in a year or two, it will start dominating endurance racing.

    It's stylish. Classy, slightly sporty and young yet you can have it at 35 and it's still fine (i wouldnt but still ).


    I like its polyvalence. I dont like open top cars, its tempting but at the end of the day I find them somewhat cheap. I live in Dubai where clouds are a rarity and its 75 at the least and up to well , like 100-120 for most of the year. While I adore sunlight I'm quite sun sensitive (bright eyes) so i dont find it a very pleasant experience if i get blinded everytime i make a turn.

    actually let me correct that. vipers look awesome with or without top but they just dont fit my personality.

    Same here. I how subtle Porsches are. I dont like to draw attention. That's also another reason I didn't get a convertible along with limited use.
