Carbon fiber is a material that is widely used among various Motorsports and racing teams across the world. It is an extremely popular material due to its weight saving, strength, and design/manufacturing freedom. With the added design freedom allowing us to further extract performance out of a diffuser; we set out to produce something aesthetically pleasing and functional for the 987 Porsche Cayman.
The diffuser is constructed of 2x2 twill, autoclave cured, 1.5mm thick carbon fiber. The units are then reinforced with a bonded carbon strengthening sections on top of the diffuser main planes. Instead of producing the rear diffuser strakes from a material like aluminum or carbon; we wanted to utilize something that would take multiple hits from pavement without a worry. The strakes are also easily replaceable due to the design of the rear diffuser.
Included with the diffuser will be all necessary stainless hardware and CNC bent brackets that are constructed out of 5052 aluminum and then powdercoated black.
Adding this diffuser to your 987 will improve the vehicle's performance, both with downforce production and drag reduction. During the design process, we utilized scan data, CAD, and ANSYS Fluent analysis software to improve performance from the rear diffuser. Below are a few images showing some of our
As most of you already know and can probably see from the photo above, we are working on a complete aero kit for the Porsche 987 Cayman. We are shooting for the release of this kit sometime before the end of the year.
If you can not wait to get your hands on some of this kit, the diffuser is available for sale on our website along with our Dive Plane Kit. Our front splitter is also shown in the below photo but is
These dive planes were also optimized through CFD for superior performance, much like the rear diffuser was. Our dive plane kits include all necessary hardware for installation and vinyl templates for an easy, worry-free install.
Both our Carbon Rear Diffuser and Dive Plane Kit work with the 987.1 and 987.2. For any further questions, please email us at [email protected].
