Italian coachbuilder Studiotorino has released a new project based on the Porsche Cayman S which will be limited to 19 conversions.

Call us baffled but we can't seem to imagine someone who would be willing to spend at least 145,000 EUR (about 200,000 USD / 121,500 GBP) to transform their Porsche Cayman S into this. It's not like the design isn't attractive but rear view visibility is appalling and the rest of the changes aren't worthy of the exorbitant price tag. In addition, the rear side windows are now gone since these have been replaced by welded metal panels.

Studiotorino mentions the car's new body was created by architect Daniele Gaglione who took his inspiration from the 1963 Porsche 904. Aside from the body panel changes, Studiotorino alters the interior cabin with different leather upholstery but nothing to write home about.

For that kind of money you would expect a considerable power upgrade but the Cayman S retains its flat-six 3.4-liter engine with 325 HP (239 kW) which sends it to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.7 seconds en route to a 176 mph (283 km/h) top speed.

Additional details can be found in the attached press release.
