They are also very expensive, everything from purchase price to consumables to mods is several multiples higher than an 86. One quick example: headers. For an 86, $700-1200. For a Cayman, $3000-5000. You're definitely paying that Porsche premium.
What about a Cayman base. I agree the S is too much too push it on the street, but the base might be good for the street.

Totally agree,
Gen 1 2017+ red crinkle aluminum intake
Still the best looking old school new car engine bay at any price.

The engine bay is actually quite pretty with the red intake plenum.

Everything nowadays has a plastic cover so you dont see engine stuff anymore.

Even the AT models and the pre-2017 models with the black plastic plenum and D4S logo doesn't look as nice.

Please elaborate on this great risk. And what specifically is "freezing"

I'm just trying to understand the bot logic here. If you shouldn't park the car in the garage during the winter months as the engine could freeze... then where should one park it? :

You donít have a garage door on your living room wall? What kind of car enthusiasts are you?

Isnt it obvious....

If you park it inside the garage, the engine has a chance to freeze.
Thus, if you park it outside, then the engine shouldnt freeze.....

i concur. i bought my 2015 brand new and it was always supposed to be my 2nd "fun weekend car". 3 years ago i got rid of the toyota pickup which may have been one of the few toyota pickups that was a damn money pit for what it was and the FR-S became the daily.
before moving across the country i really took stock of what i wanted and needed and I really do need a pickup truck and over several months i considered trading in my FR-S for a newer Tacoma. However i never did it.
When i moved i had the FR-S transported so it was out of my possession for about 2 weeks. I missed it A LOT.
I'm still going to end up getting a Tacoma but after being without my car for 2 weeks i can't imagine parting with it anymore. Its just so fun to drive and now that I'm in a place with some country roads it's even better driving than before.

"Orlando Luxury Automobile" answers the question. I highly doubt there is much risk of freezing your engine in Orlando. So the trick is for everybody to move to Orlando or risk frozen engines.

A guy in town liked his corvette so much, he put a garage door in his living room and parks it inside. True story.
