Hard Top Fail.

Ugliest hard top I ever seen. Fail in my book. Hardtop that swoops back into a duck tail. Looks like a james bond reject.

I don't think its that bad. Maybe because the original isn't all that great looking.

Since when is a CF Spoon hardtop fail? Whether or not this image reinforces your opinion, I don't know. But it is looking nice here.

This doesn't look like it fits all that well.

Minus the fact that roof came out before the cayman was even in prototype form.

I used to be a member of s2ki.com. The roof was conceived by Spoon's racing program who decided that the oem hardtop design, even in CF form, had shortcomings due to aerodynamics. They came up with that roof instead. They eventually decided to offer it to the public, as they do with most of their engines and aerodynamic parts.

In fact, if my memory is correct, isn't there a spoon racing s2000 in gran turismo 3?

+1 on the opinion fail. That is one of the nicest hard tops I've seen. If only they had made an s2000 coupe like that so it wasn't a top at all.
