It’s understandable if you spend time cruising around town in your Porsche Cayman GT4, as this legendary sports car exudes appeal. But if you’re more interested in turning fast laps than turning heads, there are some Porsche Cayman performance parts you should consider installing. Even though the GT4 is fast off the factory floor, you can still lower track times with the proper modifications. Check out the following aerodynamic upgrades and take your ride to the next level.

Get A Boost In Back With A Rear Diffuser

An expertly designed aftermarket rear diffuser for the Cayman GT4 can significantly boost performance through increased downforce. This is done by creating a low-pressure zone under the car and filling the wake region behind the car with air to reduce drag. You’ll want to find a product that integrates seamlessly with the natural flow of your chassis. After all, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice aesthetic appeal for performance. 

It’s also important to consider your overall aerodynamic balance, so you may need to address the front end as well. That point brings us to our next component.

Direct Incoming Airflow With A Front Splitter

If you’re adding a diffuser in the back, you should consider front-end modifications such as a front splitter for the Cayman GT4. A splitter is especially important if you need ample front-end downforce to balance a rear wing. As the name suggests, the splitter splits the oncoming air, creating a high-pressure region on top and lower pressure underneath for added downforce. This low-pressure air will feed directly into the diffuser, boosting performance. 

The best splitters are constructed from strong, durable, and lightweight materials such as carbon thermoplastic. In addition, you can add side splitters for the GT4 to ward off turbulent airflow coming down the sides of your vehicle. 

Dramatically Improve Downforce With A Rear Wing

Consider an aftermarket rear wing for your Porsche Cayman  if you want to improve downforce dramatically for substantial time drops. You’ll find high-performance options that vastly outperform the OEM model. While some downforce is generated from the top side of the wing, the biggest boost results from the low-pressure zone established underneath. You should look for strong, lightweight wings that attach to the vehicle just like the OEM component.

Little Improvements Can Go A Long Way In Performance

While the bulk of your time is spent making high-end customizations to the exterior of your Porsche Cayman, don’t sleep on some smaller improvements that can make a world of difference. For instance, upgrading your dry air filter can improve airflow and free up horsepower. Specifically, look for Porsche high-performance air filters that feature a bell-horn shape at the base for improved flow and reduced pressure losses.
