SOUL DEALER BUILD: Suncoast Parts 718 Cayman S

Suncoast Parts used to run a 2008 Cayman S 6-speed that was built more as a parts display car and then they started tracking it heavily. Admittedly it was never really set up for the track and it got to the point where it needed a complete overhaul so they decided to let it go to a local friend who has since turned it into a full blown track car. After that the search began for a new project.

“We were set on a 981 but had a perfect 2017 718 Cayman S fall into our lap so we snagged it with 10k miles on the clock along with PDK, Sport Chrono, PASM, and PTV. We wanted to see what this turbo motor was all about.”

Track Tested:

Suncoast completed back-to-back weekends at Sebring with PBOC Florida and the Suncoast Region PCA. The car ran flawlessly, save for a bit of heat soak with consecutive run groups (student and then advanced solo) in central Florida heat.

Suncoast is a leader in OEM and aftermarket Porsche parts – it’s very fitting they have their own built race car. Should you see them at the track – say hi – and try to keep up!
