Anyone seen these aftermarket tops?

One is here and is shown in attachment: http://www.stuttgart.co.uk/caylookht/cay_lookht1.html

This one is very interesting to me!! No pics, as it's all in Flash. The company is located in France. http://www.zeintec.com/

Let me know what you guys/gals think. I will be buying a top and am told the '05 uses a different top from previous years, so the idea of getting a used one is out the window.

If you search the word 'zeintec', you will be able to find some previous threads on the previous versions of the the hardtop. I find the their latest version interesting but the website is lacking in details. The previous version required the removal of the trunk lid. If I'm not mistaken, it looks like the new one won't require the trunk lid removed. I do remember it wasn't cheap. As if anything Porsche-related is.

Not bad looking, although I thought it looked a lot nicer from the side!

If you get any pricing info please post it!

I figured as much....should have searched further. Awesome looking top, however and I assumed it cost 10 arms and legs! Nice to increase trunk space, though!

Uncle Bob -

In my previous post, I hope I didn't come off as condescending. I just mentioned the search because I recalled that particular top being discussed in the past.

Hmmm. Looking at other photos, now I'm not sure that the trunk lid isn't removed for the Cayman look top.

This site says expect the price at $4500 Euros:

No, not condescending at all! I appreciate the help. Regardless of cost, if it's still only in Europe, it's out of the question for me atm. Shipping would kill me, I reckon.

Nice top, however! The other top I showed is more traditional but it also is from "over the pond" I'm afraid!
