If the logic behind the RK Spyder is sound — that is, that an Italian design firm and a famed German Porsche tuner can improve on an already attractive and capable Porsche — then the logic behind the RK Coupe is even better. StudioTorino, the joint venture between designer Alfredo Stola and RUF has yielded another full-body recast, this time of the Porsche Cayman. Aside from being nearly completely reskinned by the studios' artistes, in the style of the Porsche 904 and Dino 246 GT, the closed-top RK also gets RUF's supercharged, 3.8-liter flat six (440 hp, 370 ft.-lbs). The result is a Cayman with Italian flair and an engine befitting the stock model's already spectacular geometry. All for four times the price.
