With all the tuning programs being done on the Porsche 997 TT, it’s easy to get lost in the mix because of all the strong competition, all of which are hell bent on being called the best aftermarket Porsche tuner in the world.
Then you have By Design Motorsport, a company that sees the benefits of all these programs and has decided to incorporate a lot of them in their own tuned-up Porsche 997 TT. The result is the Porsche 997 TT Porschat Edition, which comes with parts from renowned aftermarket companies including Misha, ADV.1 Wheels, RUF, and H&R Springs.
It really is a good way to take advantage of the strengths and specialties of each of these companies and combine them to make one unique package that’s all its own. The result is a finished product that looks about as awesome as any tuned up 997 TT we’ve seen in a while.
Details after the jump.
Exterior and Interior
The tuned-up Porsche’s exterior comes with a number of imported tuning items from various tuners including a Misha body kit, ADV.1 wheels, a carbon fiber side mirror, a GT2 style wing blade, and a carbon fiber custom model name plate. As for the interior, By Design Motorsport outfitted the 997 TT with leather and corresponding white stitching. In addition to that, there’s also a handful of carbon fiber in the interior, including the steering wheel, the door panels, the center console, the A/C surround, the back seats, and the chrono.
By Design Motorsport kept the performance upgrades at a minimum, although with these few upgrades, there was still a noticeable bump in overall performance. Among the additions include a new exhaust system from RUF, a new set of springs from H&R Springs, and RSS 7mm spacers.
By Design Motorsport still hasn’t released a price tag for their overall package on the 997 TT so we’ll hold off making any announcements on that end. As far as making estimates are concerned, a Porsche 997 TT with My Design Motorsport’s package should be north of six digits.
A lot of other tuning firms have whipped up their own programs on the 997, not the least of which includes Gemballa, AWE Tuning, Prior Design, and the upstart Anna Bizer. All these companies modified their 997s with their own parts and packages, unlike By Design Motorsport, who decided that having the best of all worlds would create a Porsche that’s going to stand out over everything else.
