Of those three, the first one, but I would paint it to match.

Is 'None of the above' an option?

Definitely #1.
#2 looks weird...like it is for another car and forced to fit.
#3 looks very excited to see me.

#3 looks like its missing the ends. Not refined enough.

#2 looks like a plain old spoiler...boring, why even bother

#1 makes a bold statement that you want the rear end to stick to the ground at speed.
It would be my choice if you want to make the car your own and are not afraid to go full on spoiler and mean it, classic lines be dammed!

I bought the first one, as it looks the most like the Cayman spoiler, which I have liked ever since they introduced the Cayman. I have the Aero Kit II and could never wrap my mind around the wing. Never really liked the Aero Kit I wing either. Jim did an excellent job on #1 making it look like Porsche themselves came up with it. #3 is more like the old air cooled duct tail and may "do it" for someone trying to emulate that look. Gemballa had a similar spoiler like #2. Just not my taste.

Is there any data on performance difference between the three?

Aesthetically, I'd go for #3

Price would have to be $200 tops.
