Eye of the beholder, I guess. The 911-series cars have always looked fantastic to me, with the current 997 generation no exception.

I think you all are right,
and guess what the Cayman could be with the complete hardware of the GT2, it would perhaps be THE best sportscar ever...

Best, Bernd

The question is can they make a tranny that could take the power?. Most likely not.

We do know one thing about Nissan for certain.....They sure make some ugly cars like the GTR.

Won't be hard to do. Keep in mind Nissan specifically developed the GTR to best the 997 Turbo and it did. Porsche is just upping the ante like Dodge did with the Viper once the ZO6 started besting it around the track. The Chevrolet made the ZR1. The technology indeed exists for Nissan to best Porsche as they already did. So it's just a matter of will they do it or not. And at what cost to the customer.
