Miniature 3D-Printed Luxury Cars

Porsche Has a 3D-Printed Car Version of the Cayman S for Download

— December 14, 2013 — Autos
Porsche is giving everyone with access to a 3D printer the chance to make a 3D-printed car — but it’s more the size of a Hot Wheels toy than a road-ready model. Nonetheless, this is an exciting way for car enthusiasts to get creative with the design of a Cayman S.

Porsche has provided a downloadable ZIP file of the Cayman S that can be 3D-printed on its site and is encouraging fans to share their creations online by hashtagging photos with “3DCayman.”

Porsche created an example of the small Cayman S being made and its design is crying out for a sleek coat of paint or a couple of crazy mods. If this is any indication of how full-sized cars will be created in the years to come, the future is looking bright for car lovers.
