Now that Porsche has financial health and huge profits......lets see it return to backing up its reputation in building real fast world beating sports cars. The Cayman is a great platform if Porsche would only build it with a bigger engine to kick Ferraris ass in GT2 racing.
How about not worrying about pissing off Audi and building a LM1 class car to kick their ass?
How about building a better service dealership that actual caters to the customers like in the old days?

How about hiring me to a mangement position over there and I will straighten things out. I could use a job right now.
Fu@# Weideking... that smarmy little bean-counter saved Porche for what?? So it could sell minivans and sedans??? He almost killed the one righteous move Porsche has made in the last several years, the Carrera GT. And what does he/Porsche do when it returns to 'profitablity'? Start working all out on how to beat Audi (Do you think Norbert Singer, Piech or Ferry would have let that one stand)? Start developing the Cayman into the great racing platform it could be? Start offering a total range of performance options on it's lower model ranges. No, it acquires VW! There are so many thing wrong with the company, where do u begin?

Groovie, man u are so right. I would tell u about my sad but true story of test driving the Cayman S (i know, i know, it was a temporary moment of weakness, but i was going to give the car the benefit of the doubt) two year ago, but suffice to say that when the sales guys couldnt convince me of it's 'great' performance' in relation to my Z or SC, they tried to seal the deal by offering to throw in a 'Genuine Porsche Jacket'! I kid u not! I walked away disgusted. But that interaction was symbolic of where things are today.
