Farnbacher offers a Cayman with a Porsche 911 S engine. The 3.8L X-51 engine sports 395 horsepower.

Car and Driver said their test vehicle, which happened to be the best Cayman they ever have driven, came to a total of $124,360.

I am just waiting until someone adds the 911 turbo engine to a Cayman.

    The federal authorities are involved, but haven’t released a statement yet. Expect all the sordid details to be revealed in the coming days, so consider this developing…”
