LeBron James skies for a dunk on Serge Ibaka during Thursday’s Heat-Thunder game. Although Ibaka ended up blocking this attempt, James and Miami got the last laugh with a 100-96 win to tie up the NBA Finals at 1-1. Game 3 is Sunday in Miami. (Greg Nelson/SI)

Nik Wallenda walks a 1,800-foot tightrope, suspended 173 feet in the air, from the U.S. side to the Canadian side directly over the Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The famous funambulist is the first to achieve this feat. He holds six world records for other tightrope walking stunts, including the longest and highest tightrope crossing by bicycle.

Would you believe the car pictured above is a Porsche Cayman? That’s right, it’s an extra special Cayman with a Rush Aerokit designed by Anibal Automotive Design and sold by Armadura Exotics in Hollywood, California.
It’s a serious rebody available in fiber glass or, for twice the price you can splurge and get the carbon fiber kit ($50,000!). Armadura makes it easy to fully tune your Cayman with an adjustable Bilstein suspension, front and rear roll bar, Brembo brakes, a rear diffuser ($16,000!), a turbo/intercooler/header kit ($20,000!), some matching leather seats with carbon fiber finish, and some big, bad 20” HRE H-40 wheels paired with Nitto Invo tires.
The complete carbon fiber package with the works will run you roughly $119,000 (not including the car itself), almost double the price of a brand new Cayman S.
But forget about the price for a second (if you can). Just looking at the body kit, I think we have a winner here. It has bold body flares, tons of sharp edges, and details that one could never get bored of and although some may find it a bit gaudy, it harkens back to the slant nose 930’s of the past, a bit. The front bumper may be a little too “exotic” (Ferrari/McLaren) for the Cayman but the rest of the Aerokit looks like it could have been offered as an option straight from the factory.
There are a ton of 911 tuners like RUF, TechArt, and Gemballa but it’s great to see a company actually doing something with the Cayman, a car with so much potential.
You can see a complete walk around video of the car here.
