Downpipe, and a tune and you have 440 hp and 475 ft-lbs.

With awd and a dsg this will decimate any cayman, GT4 included.

Until you reach a turn and by some miracle the mediocre brakes haul it down in time it understeers like the $20k hatchback it's based on.

I think you would have to be not quite right in the head to buy one of these for 40k.

You have reason one correct. Reasons 2-9 are all cayman s. Reason 10 is the same as your reason 1 again.

Ah, I see we are playing the modded car game.

Foxbody + suspension + blower.

Spend the left over $20,000 on hookers and blow.

with the audi your mod budget will be blown on misc control modules, defective window regulator parts, and other oddball stuff.

At least it isnt one with a rube goldburg inspired timing setup

I remember seeing that. Then I saw that all that bull**** is on the back of the engine.

Honestly, if you're looking for that kind of body style, AWS, and big power, I don't know what could beat a TTRS.

The Cayman will have better turn in, steering feedback/feel, and be more of a pure sports car experience. It just depends on what your priorities are...

I'd imagine the comparison would be similar to the Cayman vs S4 matchup here (minus the dog smell and the TTRS will be much less wagony)

id try my luck with a 40k 996tt before a TTRS. Fastarar and bettarar, probably no more expensive to own.

I think the audi is actually a cool car, the circumstantial evidence for audi sucking is just too overwhelming

a 996tt would be sweet, and once the bearing is replaced the engine would be pretty bulletproof. the only issue is that you're likely looking at a 13 year old car. there's just a lot of wear that occurs over 13 years, and everything is dated. on the brightside there's less stuff to break, but at that age it's in this weird limbo. it's old enough to feel old, but not old enough to feel like it has the "rawness" of a classic.

when buying an Audi, certified with a warranty buys peace of mind. I think a CPO TTRS runs closer to 46k which may change the equation a bit. I'm not that sure that a 13 year old Porsche costs less to maintain than a 3 year old Audi.

996 TT and GT3 have the Metzger engine and don't have any IMS bearing issues.

I thought the 996TT lacked the IMS bearing issues that the non turbo cars all shared, making them much more reliable buys.

An automatic 4wd convertible naturally aspirated 996 is probably the least desirable 911 available.

I think its the 619 edition

With 20% more power and being 100 lbs lighter than my STi, and with the infrequency that I actually use full throttle in the STi, the likelyhood that I'll actually do anything to get more power is minimal. That's what the track car is for.

The other two major concerns I initially had are 1. the magnetic ride control, but there are kits out there to delete that which are affordable and 2. snow tires, but there are 18" wheels that will clear the front brakes which makes them much more reasonable than the stock 19" package.



I don't because the snow didn't melt off my lawn until about 1 1/2 weeks ago. If this was not going to be driven in winter, it would not be a consideration because of the better available options. I currently have a Porsche 944 as my summer beater, and there is a completely different list of cars that would potentially replace that.


If I need to move stuff, my tow vehicle is a Ford E350 without any rear interior. The frequency that I have more than just me in the STi, or that the STi is anywhere close to capacity of carrying stuff is very low.


While APR's name has gone to **** lately, they did manage to get a good bit of power out of it.

2.8 0-62 MPH

10.7 @ 132 MPH 1/4 mile


~1:35 is when the good stuff happens.
