The modifier works solely on Porsche models, and the new 981-generation coupe is the latest to receive new styling treatment. The front receives a new two-part spoiler and wider air intake, while the rear gains a fixed wing plus a new diffuser and tailpipes. They’re the visual evidence of the new sports exhaust, with a valve-control system that boosts the flat-six engine’s soundtrack (be it the 271bhp 2.7-litre in the base Cayman or the 321bhp 3.4-litre of the Cayman S) at the push of a button. More aggression comes in the form of sport springs – dropping the Cayman’s suspension 35mm compared to standard, and riding 25mm lower than a PASM adaptive damper-equipped car – which new 21in alloy wheels squeeze very snugly into. Three inches larger than a standard Cayman's, the wheels can be specced in lighter forged form, with ceramic polishing or a two-tone design.
