Jutta Deiss, born in 1956, adopts a subtle strategy when she is tracking down interesting stories - both as a freelance journalist and as the creative general manager of the Stuttgart-based Head-Line company. Her work appears mostly in magazines and books. She makes no secret of her affinity with Porsche or of the pleasure it gave her to follow the development history of the Cayman.Elmar Brummer, born in 1963, likes to report on things that move him (in every sense of the term) and others. His articles appear in major daily newspapers and magazines. In his editorial capacity of Head-Line he has tracked down and identified various aspects of the Cayman for the reader.Reiner Schloz, born in 1958, has attended many a major sport event as reporter or columnist, but his view of the world extends well beyond the sport arena, as does his editorial work for Head-Line. The Cayman was for him the exception that proves the rule: it captured and held his attention.Markus Leser, born in 1964, began work as a sport photographer for agencies in Munich and Stuttgart. He has gained many national and international awards. A freelancer since 1996, he has pursued situations and subjects that capture his fancy - which of course includes the Cayman.Stefan Warter, born in 1961, is a leading automobile photographer with a particular preference for Porsche cars. 911, Carrera GT and Cayenne have all posed for his camera; the Cayman too was captured on film and made a thoroughly positive impression on him.Ingo Barenschee, born in 1965, values his private freedom and, as a dedicated automobile photographer, likes to detect dynamism in all its forms. His first meeting with the Cayman satisfied all his wishes, and he was therefore only too willing to record its arduous testing program in the most extreme conditions.Review:
