    So Martin are you going to change the side intakes on your cayman cabrio?

    No... I'm done with "mods". I really like the horizontal lines of the Boxster's side air intakes better than the curved lines of the Cayman's intakes. I think that the horizontal lines stretch the car visually a little. I also like the rear bumper of the Boxster over the Cayman's. But that's all just personal preference of course.

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    hey, what about a Cayman Speedster? With lower roofline, or so... :P

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    wow ... if there's an will, there's a way.

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    OK: Here's my question: Why not just buy a Boxster and add a Cayman engine and Cayman front bumper? Wouldn't that be cheaper than $30K?

    Good question... wonder how easy it would be to sell the 3.2 onto a 2.7, or even a 986 owner?

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    Nice try Martin, you fooled at least some people here on Renteam

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    lol yea
    i was fooled at first
    but i fink "cabrio" refers to convertable with 4seats

    And I always sold them kinda good since I stick to original parts...



    no. you always sell them good since you are a pain in the aXX in contract and/or price negotiations




    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    It looks for me only like a Boxster with Cayman-Front-Bumper!

    Sorry.

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    That's exactly what it is, but seems like only few of us got the joke:p

    Wow... I really wonder how many people saw the pics thinking "THAT GUY IS INSANE!!!!"

    I should have written the truth instead:

    "Okay... here's the deal: I really like the Gallardo Spyder, but I simply didn't like the Lamborghini look on it. After 8 months of hard work and a 150,000 USD investment into bodywork, I managed to give its look a more sporty appeal."

    LoL - in this case the ruckus just might have been even stronger - though not on the 997 board, but the sportscar board

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    a cayman-esque hardtop not yet on the market: www.zeintec.com

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    Thank you, that does looks like an interesting piece, really can turn the Boxster into a Cayman!

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    Certain characters on Cayman board will not be amused that the p*ss is being taken out of their icon.

    Re: My new Cayman Cabrio

    Congrats on the Cayman nose - have you considered the rear, with the cayman spoiler and exhaust? My master plan has me doing the nose and rear at the same time I have RUF drop in the 997 S 3.8L motor. I'll wait until I get out of the warranty, then start the frankenstein process.

    I first want to get myself a good digicam instead of this lousy mobile phone cam. Also the weather really sucks ATM (snow)... Next pics will show all the beauty.
