German meisters Alpha-N Performance has produced a tuning package for Porsche’s Cayman to create what they call the Alpha One. Apart from packing 800 hp, this mean machine features carbon fibre composite body panels that resemble the ones on the upcoming 918 Spyder. This results in a sub-1300 kg kerb weight, which translates to a power-to-weight ratio of 615 hp per tonne. By comparison, a Bugatti Veyron manages 440 hp per tonne.
Not much else has been divulged, but we can see that the Alpha One is altogether lower and wider, with an especially long rear overhang reminiscent of high-power 911s. At any rate, we will have more details as the car nears its launch date in the weeks to come.
Alpha-N Performance’s engineers are from the former Brabham Racing, and as such have considerable tuning and motorsport experience.
