Many Porsche 911 models have been christened with the Avalanche name since the mid-1980s when Gemballa came out with their first Avalanche tuning package for the sports car. Since that first project, the Gemballa-911 models bearing the name have become masterpieces in their own right and Gemballa is ready to show the world just how special this model is.
At the upcoming 2011 Retro Classics, Gemballa will prove that they offer the best tuning programs for the Porsche 911 models by bringing back the Avalanche GTR 750 EVO-R for display. This is a model that has been tuned to deliver an impressive 750hp and hit a top speed of 208 mph. Next to this impressive engine update, the Evo-R will also be heavily modified on both the exterior and the interior, with a new set of 20" racing wheels and a black and orange exterior combination to boot.

Exterior and Interior
The aerodynamic package includes a new GT Evo front bumper, new front skirt, GT2 EVO front spoiler lip in carbon, GT headlights, GTR EVO rear skirt, GTR EVO-R rear spoiler in carbon, and a new set of 20" racing wheels.
For the interior, the package adds special leather, a carbon package, Pole Position sport seats, a sport steering wheel, a digital instrument panel, floor mats, instrument dials, entrance blends, and alloy pedals.
Thanks to the engine updates provided by Gemballa, the Gemballa Avalanche GTR 750 EVO-R now delivers 750hp. As if the sheer number wasn’t enough, Gemballa also added a new sports exhaust system with four-pipes, a new sport brake system, and a new set of Coilover Suspensions.
This is one tuning package where, if you’re interested, you better give Gemballa a serious call. For the rest of us that just like to live vicariously through the wealthy customers willing and able to purchase the Avalanche, we’ll stick to ogling it at the 2011 Retro Classics on March 13, 2011.
There are thousands of tuning packages for the Porsche 911 Turbo, so choosing one for comparison is like Tiger Woods having to choose which mistress to take home for the night. Just recently Sportec revealed the SPR1 FLthat delivers an incredible 858 hp, but there were no changes made to the exterior. Gemballa has changed it up for the outside look of the car, but they stand at about 100 hp less than the SPR1 FL model. Six in one hand, half a dozen in the other.
SpeedArt also has a pretty impressive package for the 911 Turbo called the BTR II 650 EVO. As you might have guessed it, the package develops a total of 650 HP and 900 NM of torque and will hit a top speed of over 208 mph. We’d easily still take the Avalanche over the BTR II 650 EVO any day of the week.
