Porsche is preparing a facelift for all the 911 models. The design will be inspired by the one used in the newly-launched Cayenne. The 2009 Carrera will compete with the latest model from Maserati, the GranTurismo, and also with the Aston Martin V8 and BMW M6.
Around 1500 of Porsche’s prestige product, the Carrera GT, have been built, all of which have now been sold. Owners worried about the individuality of their vehicle, in spite of its rareness, would be well-advised to make an appointment with GEMBALLA. Thanks to its expertise, as the only Porsche tuner GEMBALLA has comprehensively modified the high-tech car from Weissach, while at the same time adding an individual touch. In addition, performance addicts can obtain even more of what they want. The spectacular end product answers to the name of GEMBALLA Mirage GT and outshines its production-line counterpart in every respect.
