difficult to tell from the grainy picture quality, but they could be Zeinvents perhaps?

I think I've something similar but the bottom of the vents where stickers. It's hard to tell from that video what they did.

They could have done a bit of custom molding around a Zeinvent. I doubt they used a 987 body panel.

DJ's got a good eye. The owner installed an aftermarket widebody kit, and the rear panels use something similar to the Cayman vents.

I watched that video a while back and thought the car looked great... but at a whopping cost. I'd rather have a turbocharger or have a proper paint job on my dinged up, rock blasted bodywork.

I think this car belongs in the 'proof that money doesn't buy taste or common sense' thread. But to each his own.
