I personally would go for the Audi.

seeing as how the cayman s is the holy grail of current gen sports cars, id go for that. i just love everything about it: the looks, ive read that it's probably the best porsche in the range, its dynamic....the most realistic dream car. perhaps the only thing in its genre to sway me away would be the Z4M.

plus, more than 40k pounds for a TT, no thanks. the tt-rs is just so...blah, although it does have a lush interior.

Hotlink fail.
But I would have the Cayman.

I would rather have the corvette thats being shown in the failed hotlinking attempt.

The Cayman's like one of my favorite cars ever so I'll take that, but the TT-RS is really incredible, I love it as well.

+1.

Make it a Grand Sport and I'm completely sold.

Not even a question for me, Cayman.
Mr b00st
odd, both pictures work fine for me. and i'm just linking them from netcarshow...

Local cache.

Boost, use the "direct link to image" near the top of the page from netcarshow, not the actual link from the address bar.

Cayman S without fail.

Cayman S, but that's an unfairly hot pic. Mid-engine win. Not that the car needs it per-sa, but i want to see one with 350/300 N/A
moe
That's a TechArt Cayman for the record...not a stock one.
dukenukem
Am i the only one who is still seeing the hotlink failed images ?

I love the Cayman, but the TT-RS piques my interest.

I would have to drive them back to back, although unless the TT was mutha fuckin brilliant, I would go for the Cayman.
darinzon
mr just kills it.

I can't imagine that the driver interaction between the car and the driver is better in the TT than cayman... remember TT is just hotted up MKV Golf.
moe
I've read some reviews of the TT-RS. Apparently Audi was wide of the mark...shame after the RS4, R8, and TT-S.
clarkma5
The edmunds review of the TT-RS positively slammed it, which I found odd considering the only other thing I've heard about this car is that it's faster around the 'ring than the R8 4.2.
