    That rear end panel looks bizarre. Hopefully it's deep camouflage.

    I noticed that too. Is it the wing? Or just camouflage? Sure looks a bit odd.

    Mm, hope it doesn't end up anything like that - almost has shades of Panamera in there.. Smiley

    Porsche Cayman to Return to Daytona with GRAND-AM in 2013...

    GRAND-AM ANNOUNCES ELIGIBILITY LIST FOR NEW GX CLASS

     
    13 Models Can Compete In Newest Rolex Series Category In 2013
     
    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (24 October 2012) – Competitors looking to participate in GRAND-AM’s newest race category will have 10 new models from nine manufacturers to choose from, based on the list of cars eligible for the new GX class in the Rolex Sports Car Series.
     
    Earlier this year, GRAND-AM announced the new class to allow for cars and technologies currently not involved in the Rolex Series, that will debut in the 2013 Rolex 24 At Daytona.
     
    Eligible cars already announced for the class were the Lotus Evora GX, Porsche Cayman, and Mazda with the Skyactiv-D turbo diesel in a model to be determined.
     
    GRAND-AM today expanded that list to 13 models from 12 different manufacturers, adding the Audi TT, BMW 1 Series, Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus (four door), Hyundai Genesis, Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S, Nissan 370Z or Altima, and Volkswagen EOS.
     
    GX will join the Daytona Prototype and GT classes at all Rolex Series races. Rules are being developed to allow for the exploration of a wide variety of alternative technologies and alternative fuels. This could include turbocharged engines; fuels other than gasoline, such as clean diesels; and hybrid powertrains.
     
    The class will be developed with performance levels that complement the current DP and GT classes. No changes to GT performance levels are expected.

    BGB MOTORSPORTS AND PORSCHE CAYMAN RETURN TO DAYTONA

     
    - Team Press Release -
     
    ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (26 October 2012) – On the heels of a recent announcement earlier this week by GRAND-AM, BGB Motorsports announced their intention to once again field a Porsche Cayman built with the purpose of running in GRAND-AM endurance competition. While the seemingly underpowered, 3.4 liter Porsche Cayman S proved to be reliable, it didn’t compete well in GS class competition against larger powered V8 muscle from Chevy, Ford and BMW.  During the 2011 season, excellent race Strategy, pit stops and Guy Cosmo were required for the little car to finish in the top-10 respectably, every single time.
     
    Fans of the mid-engine Porsche sport coupe will be able to witness the little Cayman make Porsche history and contest the prestigious 51st running of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona for the first time ever.  Most importantly though, Cayman history will be made also as the car is finally permitted to receive the only thing it ever really needed, and that’s an engine from its big brother the 911.
     
    On Tuesday GRAND-AM announced 13 models eligible to compete in their newest class, Rolex GX. Earlier this year, GRAND-AM announced the new class to allow for cars and technologies currently not involved in the Rolex Series, that will debut in the 2013 Rolex 24 At Daytona.  Eligible cars already announced for the class were the Lotus Evora GX, Porsche Cayman, and Mazda with the Skyactiv-D turbo diesel in a model to be determined.  GRAND-AM expanded that list to 13 models from 12 different manufacturers, adding the Audi TT, BMW 1 Series, Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus (four door), Hyundai Genesis, Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S, Nissan 370Z or Altima, and Volkswagen EOS.
     
    While the new GX class was first conceived to provide a home for newer technology that might be a bit premature for conventional GRAND-AM endurance use, it provides a home for cars that might not fit in anywhere else or might not be allowed to run anywhere else.  John Tecce had more to add:
     
    “Before people start asking us if we have lost our minds, we are bringing the Cayman back because someone finally created a home for the car to race with an engine that every Porsche fan on this continent wishes it received from the factory.  We want to take the trusty Direct Fuel Injection 911 GTS engine that gave us such success this year and drop it in the Cayman like we have done for half a dozen customers across the U.S.  People love these cars and we have enough faith in this brand that we can build an economically priced GT car that is up to the task of running 24 hours AND driving to Starbucks afterwards at 4pm Sunday with its license plate on if it had to.”
     
    The team announced that the driver lineup will be managed by Rolex Series and Continental Tire Series regular Ryan Eversley of Winder, GA.  Eversley will be joined by long-time friend and co-driver Lee Davis of John’s Creek, GA.  The two have been racing together as friends and partners with an attempt to bring their clothing line to the GRAND-AM paddock; the BGB crew will be sporting the automobile racing inspired Luna-C threads while the Luna-C logo is prominently displayed on the eye-catching Porsche Cayman.  
     
    Details regarding the final three drivers will be released at a later date.
     

    ...perhaps we will finally see a Cayman GT3 or RS to provide a genuine "halo" model for the range! Smiley

    Hardly a production car that you or I could buy from your friendly Porsche dealer and drive home is it? Smiley

    I was referring to the car BGB Motorsport plans to field in GRAND-AM next year, not to Porsche's production plans (read the article posted by BC GTS).
