Hey guys! After looking at a few cars, I settled on a 2019 Cayman S with 11k miles and over three years of warranty left (between factory and CPO). Purchased through Abraham at Hennessy Porsche in Roswell, Ga. (for any of you ATL guys in here). I LOVE the car so far, but I'm still planning on a few mods. My last car was a GT350, and I do miss the roar of the V8, so a Fabspeed exhaust might be the first mod. Other than that, Ohlins coilovers and the APR tune are the only other major mods I plan to do. I opted for the Xpel PPF and ceramic through the dealer. I probably could have had it done at a local shop for less, but leaving the dealer with the car looking like a million bucks made the cost hurt a little less! Any other ATL owners on the board?

Good Luck ~ Two questions, what color is that & if you don't mind, the price ?

The gray with red brake accents is amazing!

Would an engine swap be one of those mods by any chance? :ROFLMAO:

P.S.: I'm sure you've seen the video from SmokingTire of the Cayman painted a bit like a Ford GT40 and upgraded with the Ford Coyote engine from a Mustang.

NO! I definitely haven't seen that video, but I'm going to search for that episode now. Thanks for the heads up!

Don't get any ideas! But yeah, I'd love to test-drive that one for a bit. 450+ HP in a modern 3000 pound mid-engine car with a manual transmission. How good could that possibly be?

For everyone's viewing pleasure:

I know it's not exactly the same thing, but the APR tune will put between 400-420 to the wheels. Interesting!
