2009.2. MY09 new Cayman!
I heard that new MY09 cayman is shown at dealer, and went to see the difference.
There is MY08 and MY09 cayman!

Front lip spoiler is changed.
Fog lamp is also changed.
This LED work daylight at USA, and parking light at Japan.
Head light is dramatically changed.
It seems difficult to put this new light into my MY08 cayman.
Door mirror is bigger.
So, how about the interior parts?
Instrument clusters are not changed.
I think this aluminum plate is option.
This car is PDK.
I want to test drive!
Sadly, new center console looks cheaper.
Result of "cost-cut"?
What is the big and strange thing on the dash?
It is navigation antenna. It should be much smaller
Except than these changes, interior parts are not changed.
The surface of new engine emblem is smooth. Why?
Rear section, we can also see additional changes.
Most appealing is the LED tail light.
To install these new lights into MY08 cayman, we must modify rear fender and bumpers. Very hard work.
Blinker and back light is normal halogen lamp.
The shape of under spoiler is also changed.
New Cayman S rims in rear.
And in front.
In summary, the Porsche worked hard
to build up new engine.
The lights and rims are changed, but the changes are minimal.
However, they also performed some "cost-cut" such as black plasticky interior parts.
