Wide Load: Techart Widebody Cayman S
One thing's for certain, the new nose improves downforce and brake cooling, which is a good thing because TechArt offers two different engine upgrades. The first engine upgrade bumps output by 15 hp via bolt-ons and software revisions. The second option is a comprehensive rework of the flat-6 including new pistons, camshafts, manifolds and management software, all together delivering a displacement increase to 3.8 liters and an output of 385 horsepower and 407 Nm of torque. Out back, the angle from which most people will see this Cayman, there's a choice between the outrageous wing seen here, or a more subtle spoiler. There's also a revised lower fascia and diffuser, rounding out the package. Chassis upgrades are also available for cars with Porsche Active Stability Management and non-PASM models. The suspension improvements include 20-inch rims, and a height adjustable coil-over system that drops ride height by 2.5 inches. For the PASM, there's variable damping adjusted by a cockpit button – pretty slick.
Speaking of the interior, that's of course upgradeable as well, from mild changes to a full-on refit. Not that there was anything wrong with the Cayman, but the TechArt widebody manages to separate you, and your money, from the standard Porscheophile pack.
