beating a Cayman at handling is a tall task.. i havent driven an Evora to debate this, so i'll take your word.

i'd still prefer the Porsche product for a better overall purchase.

997 is a trickier debate... But mostly because of lotus build quality more than anything else.
i prefer the 997 chassis to the 991... 997 seemed the perfect 911, hints of the old, with the best of the new all in one package..

Evora over 991 is bold though

Lets be frank, the 991 and 981 are quite a few steps back from the 997 and 987 as drivers cars.

Couldn't stop focusing on the dickbag cyclists...

Car seems cool, but I don't like the front bumper on the 400...looks a bit aftermarket(y). The Evora S is a much cleaner design.

This one sounds pretty darn nice:
