February’s Car of the month is this yellow 2006 Porsche Cayman S.
The San Antonio local brought us the car with the hopes we could visually change a few things and perform one of our signature auto details making the Porsche stand out a little more and personalize it to the owners taste.
Normally covered and only visible during service the 3.4-liter version of Porsche’s M96 flat-six engine family from the Boxster and the 911 is tweaked to deliver 295 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque and is something the owner wanted detailed painted and a clear engine cover installed. We also added some hidden lighting in the engine bay for displaying the detailed work at night time.
The interior originally gray and black was updated. The seats and center console were removed striped and refinished to match the speed yellow color of the exterior of the Cayman. Xpel Carbon Film was applied to the back of the seats, shifter bezel and to a large trim piece located just behind the engine bay.
Outside the Cayman, the paint received one of Concours Auto Salon’s signature 4 step paint corrections. The process removes all swirls, light scratches, and halos leaving the paintwork crystal clear, glossy and ready for wax or a paint sealant. Concours Auto Salon added some LED lighting to the front of the Cayman creating white driving lights and amber turn signals. At the back of the Cayman, we tinted the tail lights to keep with the black and yellow Bumble Bee look and applied more of Xpel’s Carbon Film to the spoiler.
The modifications Concours Auto Salon performed combined with the blacked-out wheels, black stripes, carbon fiber mirrors, perfectly polished paint and detailed interior really make the Cayman a head-turner.
