Eh, it jut looks like a black cayman s with the turbo wheels.

And no amount of "special" pens and brief cases would make me want to spend $80k on a freakin' cayman. And i like the cayman s too.

That's about what they run anyway, isnt it? With a decent group of options, at least. The car seems pretty cool. Unfortunately, it's doomed to follow the path of all the other Porsche "special edition" that contain no performance upgrades. Some rich speculators will scoop them up, try to sell them down the line at a mark-up, then scratch their heads when there are no takers. See Porsche's 1975 anniversary edition, 1988 signature edition, etc.

My dad had a 1989 Carrera 911 Silver Annviersary Edition. He sold it to some enthusiast without knowing the special kind of demand out there for such a car. Never the less, he still sold it for not much less than he bought it for.

Only differences I could see we're more aggreseeive rocker panels, triple stripe running down the middle and 911Turbo wheels...

I love the Cayman S but FUUUUUCK me, 80k for it? I'll pass on the pens and sunglasses and get a regular Cayman S.
