Would be very cool to see a mid-engine Cayman competitor.

But how is a DCT only, Inline-4, mid-engine Mercedes going to rock the boat or excite someone who wasn't already excited about a 718 Cayman/Boxster?

Sure doesn't seem like the super lightweight yet low on power Alpha 4C has really set the world on fire either.

And if this goes the Audi TT direction... yeah I'll take that Inline-5 instead thank you.

Easy for Porsche to install the heated and cooled cup holders out of the Taycan when that time comes.

Based on what they've done with the SLS and GT cars, this will undoubtedly be a performer.

I hope they refine the looks though before it launches. I don't love it as it sits. Feels like it's missing something and doesn't "look" like a mercedes car.
