2011 Porsche Cayman Body Structure

The 2011 Porsche Cayman Body Structure is shown below, not that there are a ton of these on the road.  However, cutting up a car that cost more than the average house has got to be a rush!  The metals shown in green are Ultra-High Strength Steel (UHSS) while the pink or magenta are parts formed from Tailored blanks.  This means the thickness can vary throughout the entire part because Tailored blanks are made from several different blanks of varying thicknesses that are laser welded together.  If I lost you, (which I almost lost myself in that last sentence) than check out my posting about Tailored Blanks.
