Khyzyl Saleem Treats Porsche’s 918 Spyder To A Le Mans-Style Longtail Aero Kit

Khyzyl Saleem’s prodigious talent for automotive design has afforded the internet-famous concept artist a multitude of experiences and opportunities that most only ever dream about. The completely self-taught concept designer has seen his renders turned into tangible builds for high-profile events like SEMA, and Saleem has repeatedly been called on by video game developers to pen unique aero kits for playable cars in racing sims. And one such title that the Guildford-based designer contributed to was 2017’s open-world racing sim, Need For Speed Payback.

Saleem’s contribution to the EA-published title was a Porsche 918 Spyder with a sleek full aero kit. And, though the Saleem-designed 918 made it into the game, the non-gaming public was never introduced to the beautiful and aggressively-designed supercar. Until now, when — four-years later — Khyzyl has unveiled concept images of his Spyder. While the front of the car and its headlights leave little doubt as to what model this aero kit is bestowed upon, the design hugely changes the Porsche’s overall aesthetic, adding sinister-looking wide-body wheel-wells and fender flares, sculpted side skirts, and a Le Mans-style longtail rear-end arrangement with a pair of exhausts ejecting spent fumes from just behind the headrests.
