Now that is really cool!!!!  like you said I would maybe consider augmenting the attachment with some zip-ties but that is a great tip!!!  Wonder if I can make them work on a 951.

 

Just ordered up a set for my AE86. For $12 hard to go wrong. (Plus I can say I have fancy Porsche parts on my car)

After a little more research I found that these are an upgrade for my 987.1 Cayman and can be modified for the Cayman rear brakes. $34 shipped.

You are all such enablers…

I remember having to buy a non-gt3 one for my boxster to replace a mangled one and it was more expensive than a pair of gt3 ducts.

Sort of related, but when I had to replace a tie rod end on my 911, the Turbo piece cost a tick less–and that’s the one that offers tighter handling. So that’s when I did the upgrade. 

Yes! I have a pair of these on my MkV GTI from when I was tracking it, pre-mustang. They clip right onto the control arms for a FSI engined car. Not the TSI, though, since the control arms have a wider cross-section. They hung down a fair bit into the airstream and made a noticeable difference in brake fade at Roebling Road.

I do not have a use for these yet as I am back into autoX, but I will order a set just to have JIC for that price

Dang you…more money spent!

Mine will arrive next week, plenty of time to put on for my VIR track day!

Cool tip, one Ive not heard about, must be spread on the facebook boards or something

I’ll post a link on the OC

And in true Pcar fashion, these will go NLA and become worth 3,245 bucks a piece 4 years from now. Buy a hundred and pay for your kid’s college (or tech school).

LOL I was thinking the same thing adding them to the cart.  I mean, 5 sets just to get to the free shipping…

*sigh*

The Cayman has one tie rod end that needs to be replaced soon…might as well get both if the turbo ones fit the 987.

Another option is the Audi RS3 front brake deflectors. They are a little large vertically and have OEM zip ties to secure them to the control arms. They work well on just about anything with a front control arm.

Bought a pair for my projects..

Back in Stock for Cheap @ FCP Euro Thanks GRM!

Nice. Nothing like a cheap upgrade. I ordered 2 pair incase 1 set breaks. At $33 to the door, it’s nothing. Should fit the New BRZ just fine. 

Also got 2 sets to try out.  GRM should get a commission for these.

The RS3 ducts look like a good option for cars where the front of the control arms are going straight across the car or angled forward toward the wheels, may get some of these for my AE92. Planning to put a set of GT3 ducts on my 86.

Boom!

 

And they have arrived at my door in under 48 Hrs… I did not even spring for the fast shipping.  It helps that I am somewhat Northeast.

Off to the garage to start figuring things out.

Awesome. Glad to hear that JG’s tip is helping out. 

Don’t forget the Cayman GT4 rear diffusers, too!

 

In reply to Javelin :

Thanks! I will hafta look into those as well!

In reply to Javelin :

Those came as well!  A little more expensive than the fronts, but still cheap for ordering from the Porsche dealer!

Well dangit…AGAIN. I need to install these still, but, hell, why not order another set (or two!) for later. Just cause. Also, dont tell the fiance. 

In reply to Javelin :

So I guess the Rear Diffusers are really more Like Rear Brake Cooling Air Deflectors?   When I think Diffuser I think of the Big Wide Aero bits at the low down rear of Modern Road Performance Track day car.

I hafta think about how I would adapt them on a soild axle Car – Probably need to make some sort of mounting plate then make use of the already included mounting holes in the part.

$20 shipped. Guess we’ll see if they fit the miata

In reply to slantsix :

Anything that directs air is a diffuser? I’m with you, the end piece at the back is “the” diffuser, but I guess these would be deflectors or something? I dunno, I’m no aerodynamicist, but Porsche thinks they work and they are cheap, so why not?

Had to look in on this thread – the words ‘bargain parts” and Porsche are so rarely linked together!

Bought another set for our endurance race ’62 plymouth valiant.

 

They look perfectly at home on my 1964 dart .. attaching them to the front sway bar was effortless.

 

 

 

 

We’re using c5 vette brake ducks on our new civic endurance car,nicely flattened section for tire clearence.

 Gutted the headlights and installing the inlets thru the lights.

I was a little disappointed. Apparently one side was sold out but the other side was still in stock. FCP Euro just sent me one air deflector…

In reply to calteg :

Hmmm, their site says that both sides are available. Could the second be on the way? 

In reply to calteg :

What side are you missing? I may have a spare.
