The Porsche Cayman GT4 is the mid-engine, manual transmission-only gift to gearheads we've been waiting on for nearly a decade, and now you can build your own. Naturally, be careful with the options boxes.

Yes, you want the carbon fiber seats ($4,730). And the Sport Chrono with the accompanying track app for your phone ($1,850). The wheels are standard, and if you're hellbent on lightweight uber alles, you can deleted the radio and A/C. But you can also go the other route and have everything – everything – coated in leather. Not just the dashboard and the sun visors, but the rear view mirror and the steering column and the air vents and the instrument surround and even the… fuse box? Yes. The fuse box.

For $380. American.

I went light and came up with $23,600 of – to my mind – worthwhile options over the $84,600 base price. Let's see what you can do.
