The Imola, a modified Porsche Cayman from Swiss automotive designer Rinspeed, has a bright orange paint scheme said to be inspired by the car's reptilian namesake. The checkered paint also complements Rinspeed's aerodynamic upgrades. These include a lower front skirt, larger air intakes with integrated parking lights, new side skirts that make the car appear lower and sleeker, and a complete rear skirt with a carbon diffuser insert. To boost horsepower and give the engine a better sound, the designer added headers, metallic catalytic converters, and a stainless-steel exhaust system.
