Porsche CAE Ultra Shifter for 996 / 997 / 986 / 987 models. Street version of the original motorsport shifter for fitment to road vehicles with centre console.
Porsche CAE Ultra Shifter has mounting brackets to fit under the factory center console. It’s developed for use with 6-speed Gearboxes but it will work with all 5-speed transmissions as found in older Cayman & Boxster models. In 5 speed applications the reverse lock out is disabled.
Can be used with the original Porsche gearshift cables (not included) but works best with optional CAE HD gearshift cables.
Gives a short and super-precise shift, retaining the H-pattern. The Porsche CAE Ultra Shifter is characterised by its optimised ergonomics with a focus on motorsport. Perfect positioning of the shift lever close to the steering wheel gives excellent control and feel. The shift pattern is confined to an area approx 65 x 65mm. Activation of the reverse gear is possible by lifting the locking collar, accidental selection of reverse gear is not possible.
Super low weight and high stability comes as standard, the milled and lathed parts consist of 7075 aluminium alloy while the substructures are made from of laser-cut 3 mm thick AlMg3 aluminium. The parts are combined in the TIG welding process and finished in a brushed finish. The Porsche CAE Ultra Shifter is also available in an anodised black option.
Problem-free shifting of gears under stress or in curves, an integrated centre position spring ensures perfect feedback while shifting up and down. Right/left stops and reverse gear stop are adjustable separately for perfect shifting, unique to every car.
Simple installation through a complete conversion kit. All Porsche CAE Ultra Shifter systems are delivered with all small parts required, fasters and detailed installation instructions are available upon request.
997 models require no modification of the center console itself to install the Porsche CAE Ultra Shifter. The frame between the center console and shift boot does have to be slightly modified however. With the CAE Ultra Shifter installed the OE Shift boot can’t be mounted. An optional carbon fibre cover is available to replace the shift boot.
