Sad thing: Porsche are not likely to launch a Targa derivation of the Cayman - and even if so, it
will most certainly get no detachable roof panel - though offering this would be
pretty easy for them! Since the Cayman bases on the Boxster, the body structure should be stable
enough for that.

At least reinforcing the body work for a missing roof
section shouldn't turn out an unsolvable or unaffordable issue.
The question is whether the market want such a thing, or
rather how many would prefer this version. Maybe it would be a rewarding project for one
of the big names of the Porsche tuning business.
Cutting out a part of the Cayman's roof is definitely not the best appro-
ach for a hand
built series. Especially as there's another, clearly more practicable way: A two-piece
hardtop for the Boxster! This would also turn the open top baby Porsche into what we want
it to be: A real Targa model. And, it allows returning it into a roadster at any time.
As there are two sections behind the seats - the engine
bay and the trunk - the baby Porsche has got a pretty long tail. So a hard top longer than
the genuine part from Porsche could help enhancing pro-
portions but space for this is
limited because of the trunk lid. A reme-
dy for that and the full car come on the next page.
