You can do a youtube search... there are multiple videos of the Cayman running on buttonwillow. One video shows a Cayman R running 2:11...

Yeah, Porsche's flat-sixes are the greatest things. They're pretty torque-y and they sound so good. Each motor sounds different, but they all sound great. I want a Porsche so badly, but I think I want something older. I really want something pre-1975 so I can do whatever I want to the car without having to smog it, but sadly I think I'll probably be priced out of that market forever now... every year prices increase massively. You can't even buy a rusted-out rolling chassis for an old car for under $10k now... it's ridiculous. Hopefully that bubble will burst at some point :\
Yeah unfortunately air cooled Porsche prices have been holding steady or slowly going up (for 964/993s) or skyrocketing for the older ones, especially the long nose models. Just craziness.

This reassures me with my FR-S purchase. But that's only because at 6"4 the FR-S is already a tad smaller than ideal. I probably couldn't do a 2k or Cayman

Out of curiosity, from someone who hasn't done any track days (but would like to in the near future), what are the most obvious/common errors you see in that video?

He takes the safe line and doesn't actually utilize the entire track. He also looks really tense.

More than anything, he's scared (which isn't a bad thing). Also seems like he just doesn't know the potential of his car, so he accepts what he believes to be the limit as the limit, and does not try to go beyond his self-imposed limits.

There's even an almost "VTEC" like changeover above 6000 when the Vario-Cam adjusts the timing. The exhaust note changes and you feel a little extra boost. It's also quite torquey for what it is, with it's peak torque (252) sustained over a 3000 rpm band.
I agree - it is a great engine. I wonder if the kick you feel at 6k is due to your tune though - I don't notice much at 6k, instead, I feel a significant increase in pull as the engine climbs a bit past 4k, and then it pulls strongly (and continuously) from about 4500 to redline. The torque is great though - even at the low end, this engine definitely pulls surprisingly hard for how rev-happy it is at the top.

If you don't plan on boosting the s2000 (no experience with them there, but the supercharged s2000 seem to be very peaky), I'd say just get the Cayman S. You obviously want more power, like N/A engines, etc. Get the car you really want.

If by peaky, you mean linear powerband yes
