The third generation of the Boxster (type 981) and the second edition of the successful Cayman (type 981c) are ideal entry-level models to experience the fascination of Porsche. It seems like the two mid-engine sports cars want to get out of the slipstream of the legend Porsche 911. This will be even easier for the “Wild Youth” from Zuffenhausen (home town of Porsche) with our KW coilover kit Variant 3 that is specifically tailored to the demands of Porsche fans with its separate rebound and compression adjustment. The KW coilover suspension Variant 3 allows for a continuous lowering of up to 45 mm.

The KW coilover kit Variant 3 combines the perfect balance of everyday use and sporty driving dynamics with similar setting possibilities as they are common in motor sport. The KW coilovers, coming in numerous versions, are the first choice for many well-known car tuners. Many racing teams like Manthey Racing, the record winner of the Nürburgring 24-hour race, rely on the KW suspension technology. “In the suspension development for the two mid-engine models, we benefit from our strong commitment in the VLN Endurance Championship on the Nürburgring Nordschleife,” said KW Product Manager Johannes Wacker. “We work closely with our engineers of the KW competition racing department to transfer innovations for Porsche cars from motor sport to the street.” For example: the patented valve technology for a separate compression and rebound damping adjustment of the KW coilovers Variant 3 are based on developments from racing. The rebound damping which is adjustable with 16 clicks lets Porsche drivers consider a change of the standard wheel-/tire-combination. And the separately adjustable compression damping with its twelve clicks influence the dynamics of the Boxster and Cayman further when it comes to handling, type of tires and grip conditions. Demanding Porsche drivers will notice it immediately, when the KW coilovers Variant 3 provide an increase in steering precision and track stability already in basic setup. “For an individual damper adjustment of the KW coilover kit Variant 3, Porsche drivers do not even need any tools, as the exact click adjustment allows to adjust the rebound and compression damping by hand.”

The continuous lowering is provided directly through the steel strut via the dirt-resistant trapezoid thread. At the front, the Boxster (type 981) and Cayman (type 981c) can be lowered within the German TÜV-tested adjustment range of 25 to 45 mm. It is easy for the Porsche fan to lower the body centre of gravity by 25 to 45 mm on the drive-axle. The Porsche Boxster (type 986) models and Porsche Cayman (type 987) models that are very popular in the used car market profit from different KW coilovers for an individual lowering and numerous versions for the use on the road or even for professional motor sport use are available.
