The Cayman is not just a Porsche, with all the status that exudes, but also one of the best-balanced sports cars on the market. Apparently, a few owners do like to take a dig at other German car owners, and in particular wannabes.
This photo was recently posted on Reddit and shows a red Cayman waiting at a traffic light. Initially, it appears to be just an ordinary, non-S model, but a closer look shows that the Porsche badge has been replaced with a BMW one and that both an M and 318i logo have been affixed to its derriere.
Taken on face value, this might seem strange. However, as a number of users on Reddit have noted, the owner of this Cayman is simply making fun of BMW drivers who affix their normal models with M badges.
No matter where you live in the world, we’re willing to bet that at some stage you’ve seen a 3-Series with an M badge and other fake M accessories. It happens all too often and quite frankly, is pretty embarrassing. It’s also not uncommon for many Mercedes-Benz drivers to stick AMG badges onto their non-AMG vehicles as a way to suggest they have a more impressive car than they really do.
While we appreciate the joke the Cayman driver is trying to make, we probably wouldn’t put BMW badges on a Porsche though…
