With its new Individual Program for the current Porsche Cayman S sports coupe, the German tuning specialist Strosek offers Porsche owners around the world two levels of upgrade that together give the entry-level sports car more power and distinction. Well, it still won’t turn your humble Cayman into a raving 911 Turbo S.
The first level, says Strosek in its press release, consists of a sport air filter, metal catalyst, sport exhaust and reprogrammed engine electronics, which helps raising the Cayman’s available power from 295 to 320 horsepower.
The second level is much more advanced and, let me say, deep, since it involves a sort of surgical operation: car’s original engine is replaced with new 3.8-liter flat-six, producing 380 hp and a peak torque of 306 lb-ft (415 Nm).
That’s enough to heighten the Cayman’s top speed to 179 mph (288 km/h) and to make it accelerate from standstill to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds, which is 0.7 seconds better than the original model allows for.
External tuning also seems to be quite an elaborate: the car’s appearance is modified with a new front apron, which is basically the factory one with added two-piece front spoiler with integrated air dams that direct air to the front brakes.
There is also an additional center airfoil, manufactured from PU-Rim material, new rocker panel and exclusive Strosek power convex mirrors.
The car may be ordered with a set of light-alloy wheels, available as one- or multi-piece rims with 19- or 20-inch diameters and equipped with 8.5Jx20 and 11Jx20 Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tires in size 235/30 ZR 20 in front and 305/25 ZR 20 on the rear axle.
