I'm pretty sure mine in unique. I track the market, and I have not seen another in the same configuration yet. Lava Orange makes it a relatively easy task.

In my countless hours of obsessive 718 shopping, I’ve seen maybe 1% that have the rear wiper option. And I’ve never see one with adaptive cruise control. I would like to order with both of these options, even though the radar cruise control seems overpriced.

I think the rear wiper looks cool. Rear wiper and power folding mirrors combined are the options that I've only seen come up twice together when searching for 718 and 981.

Not a fan of the rear wiper on sports cars. I took it off of my 350Z and plugged the hole. Then again I didn't drive that car in winter conditions. It probably has its benefits for that.

Of course it's subjective but this is why I like the rear wiper. https://petrolicious.com/articles/the-unlikely-story-of-how-porsche-dna-probably-ended-up-on-your-car

They are more useful on more upright rear windows though.
As i currently own a 718 Boxster and a Tesla Model 3 I have no rear wipers on any of my cars.
Having owned a handful of hatchbacks I must admit it can be very practical, but on cars where the rear window angle is closer to horisontal than vertical, it is not really needed.

I guess I have a higher level view of what is unique. I don't see any difference between a Miami Blue 6 speed Cayman GTS and the same car with the GTS interior or colored seat belts or painted side intakes or different wheels. I see unique at color, Cayman or Bosxter, transmission, and model base, S or GTS.

Agreed. I find it useful on my VW GTI, on which it is nearly vertical. Will avoid that option for my 718 (whenever I can finally order it) since it is so sharply raked. That, and as you use it, it ever so slightly marks the glass, and so it will always have a wiping pattern as I see on my GTI.
