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.
What was the Cayman S like? I am curious to know what you liked and disliked about it, because I probably won't ever get to drive one since I would just buy a 996TT for that kind of money. Or better yet, another 930...
