No one really knows XTR Carchip, but the Berlin-based tuning company is making waves with its “X-Wide” Porsche Cayman project. Designed as a daily-driver-turned-track-tool it underwent a major exterior overall, with a detachable CFRP front splitter, guards, side skirts, carbon fibre exterior mirrors and an adjustable rear spoiler, along with some blinging central locking 18-inch BBS RS wheels wrapped in Pirelli rubber.

In the cabin, the stereo and air conditioning have been kept, but a set of Recaro GT3 seats with six-point Schroth harnesses and a roll cage make it ready for a late night assault on Hockenheim.

In terms of performance it’s a little disappointing for now. The only modifications to the engine are a Super Sprint Magnum cat-back exhaust and an ECU tune which takes total output to 310 horsepower and brings a top speed of 284 kph. However, XTR isn’t stopping yet and are working on a twin-turbocharged version that will reportedly put out around 850 hp when it goes on sale early next year.
