I was served an ad for this vehicle in my searching of the inter-webs. How did they know? You have to love re marketing technology, I remember the good old days when I had to search for those things I desire instead of having them find me.
This Cayman was built by Porsche Napleton of Westmont to celebrate the Rennsport Reunion IV event. 100% of the proceeds from this auction will benefit Children’s Tumor Foundation.

Bravo to Napleton Porsche for offering this car up for such a good cause. Also for doing their part in keeping the Porsche racing legacy alive and well in the states. Napleton founded the Cayman Interseries in 2009.
It would be easy for a Porsche dealer to shill Cayenne’s and Panamera’s all day so good on Napleton for helping keep the Porsche racing spirit alive.
