Front splitters are very effective at producing front end downforce without increasing drag significantly. They do this by creating a large pressure delta between the top and bottom surfaces. We then incrementally improved the front splitter by adding design tweaks to the underside of the splitter to improve flow while working with the OE plastic underbody panels.
The splitter is produced from a carbon thermoplastic, which is the same material used in high forms of Motorsports. The material is not brittle, so no more issues with cracking like carbon fiber and ABS. It will not grab and bend under the car like aluminum units either. It is a great splitter material.
The air dam is used to bring the splitter flat with the vehicle's underbody and improve performance further. The air dam is produced with pre-preg carbon fiber and is cured in an autoclave for reduced weight and improved strength.

Front splitters, when designed properly, greatly increase front end grip and this is the case with our splitter and the 987.2 Cayman. Utilizing state-of-the-art analysis software, we were able to extract more performance from the front splitter and air dam combo through an iterative design process. We were also able to properly size the front splitter and dive planes to counteract the rear wing and diffuser; creating a safe and effective aero balance.
The front splitter is part of our Ventus 2 Kit for the Porsche 987. The Ventus 2 kit boosts downforce significantly from the factory vehicle. The goal was to create a package that dramatically improved the aerodynamic performance from a factory 987 in a safe and balanced package for the typical track/HPDE enthusiast.
