Featured here is LA resident Andrew Ho’s impressive Porsche Cayman. Named Project Kaiju 987, anyone following our social media channels will instantly recognize this beauty. Andrew Ho has been sponsored by our team and we thought it was time to do a more in-depth showcase of his car along with a plentiful collection of photos. With so many modifications this car has had, the EZ Lip PRO may have truly been the easiest one.

ABOUT THE BUILD:
I have always been a Bimmer guy. I previously had an E90 with an M-tech kit riding on Enkei RPF1. I purchased this Cayman as an engagement gift for my wife. Considering that it is a 2009 with only 43,000 miles, she doesn’t drive the car as much because of LA traffic and manual transmission.
My good friend Long Tran at LTMW reached out to me because he knew Kei Miura, of Pandem, was developing a wide-body Cayman. I couldn’t pass up on this project. Long was able to get various sponsorships from Fiexhaust, Fabspeed Motorsport, Stoptech brakes, Recaro, Tarett engineering, Airlift suspensions and lastly got me a SEMA booth position at the Forgestar.
After the 2016 SEMA show, I wanted to build a Cayman that Porsche should have built- a 987 GT4- but didn’t because they wouldn’t let the little brother surpass the 911. So I am currently seeking a GT3 engine or a 977 Carrera S engine. This may complete my build.
