      The 22" conversion cost $10,500, not the wheels only.

      Here is the interesting bit:

      the only Porsche Cayman coupe with 22" wheels, costed $10,500 for the conversion 6 years ago.
      the car is listed as a repairable write off 7 years ago, i have owned it for 5 years. seriously for under $30000 i will guarantee this is by far the best and most attention seeking car on the market.

      Yeah, that's the surprise

      Must have taken a big hit to write off a 2007 Cayman in 2007/08.

      Mildly interesting Porsche related story.. I did a 4 day Coral Sea dive trip on the Spirit of Freedom a few weeks back and got talking with an older German bloke (doing the trip with his wife), who's day job was managing the Porsche online Car Configurator.. He said he's worked for Porsche for about a decade. He doesn't get a company car, however, Porsche have a staff "test drive" thing where staff can take cars from a pool for anywhere from a few hours to a week or 2 on a "test". He said he'd never been able to snag a GT3, but loved the Panamera Turbo. He said the biggest overhaul to the configurator recently, just before he came on the trip, was rolling out a new build that does dynamic window resizing.

      Like I said, mildly interesting..

      Press Release 04/02/2015

      Porsche welcomes new member to the GT family

      The benchmark in its class: the Porsche Cayman GT4

      Australia. Porsche has added a new member to its GT family – the new Cayman GT4. This is the first time Porsche has introduced a GT sports car based on the Cayman which shares many of its components with the 911 GT3. A lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds on the North Loop of the Nürburgring positions the Cayman GT4 as the new benchmark at the top of its market segment. It also makes a clear statement that Porsche will continue producing exciting two-door sports cars in the future – sports cars that are developed at the Motorsport department in Weissach.

      The engine, chassis, brakes and aerodynamic design of the Cayman GT4 are configured for maximum driving dynamics; yet the top model still retains the versatility and everyday utility that is typical of the two-seat Porsche coupe.

      The Cayman GT4 is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine with 283 kW (385 hp), derived from the 911 Carrera S. Power is transmitted by a six-speed manual gearbox only incorporating dynamic gearbox mounts. Porsche’s new two-door super star accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 295 km/h. The car's NEDC fuel consumption is 10.3 L/100 km.

      The chassis – which features a 30 mm lower ride height and a generously sized brake system – consists nearly entirely of components from the 911 GT3.

      Fit for the race track: first Porsche Cayman with downforce at both axles

      The Cayman GT4 looks different to its siblings. Three distinctive inlet openings at the front and a large fixed rear wing are part of an aerodynamic package which is systematically designed for downforce. For those wanting even more performance, the Cayman GT4 can be optioned with PCCB ceramic brakes, full shell seats made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), a custom Sport Chrono Package with the unique Track Precision app and a Club Sport Package.

      The interior of the Cayman GT4 is designed so that the driver and front passenger experience unfiltered driving enjoyment. It starts with the body-hugging sports seats, upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara; while the new GT4 sport steering wheel guarantees maximum control and direct steering feedback with its compact dimensions.

      Technical aspects of the new Cayman GT4 are based on the 911 GT3. As a mid-engined sports car and a prime example of driving dynamics in its class – it follows the conceptual tradition of such cars as the 904 GTS, 911 GT1, Carrera GT and 918 Spyder.

      GT sports cars from Porsche embody the most passionate connection possible between everyday driving and the race track and thereby the sporty core of the brand: Intelligent Performance. Four out of five owners of GT Porsche sports cars use their cars on a track.

      The Cayman GT4 celebrates its world premiere in early March at the Geneva International Motor Show and will be available in Australia in the third quarter of 2015, priced from $190,300.

      Urban fuel consumption 14,8 l/100 km; extra-urban fuel consumption 7,8 l/100 km; combined fuel consumption 10,3 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 238 g/km
