Porsche has always been Gemballa’s favorite automaker, having done plenty of programs for the German brand. And now that Porsche has released the new 911 , it was only a matter of time before Gemballa got their hands on one.
So with the new 911 Carrera in their possession, Gemballa set out to create an even more individual appearance for the iconic sports car, one that features a comprehensive aero kit and an impressive performance upgrade.
The Gemballa GT kit is exclusively made from light and strong carbon fiber and includes a new front bumper, new side skirts, and a new rear bumper. All these components have been designed along modular lines so that in the event Gemballa decides to add even more components to the car, they can do so without having to change any of the existing kits installed. Rounding off the exterior modifications are a new set of 21" ultra-light forged alloy wheels, which ironically lessens the overall weight of the wheel set-up despite being bigger than the stock 19" wheels on the Carrera and 20" wheels on the Carrera S.
“Lowering the unsprung weight despite going up a wheel size was a priority," explained Gemballa CEO Andreas Schwarz.
For the engine upgrade, Gemballa added its own exhaust system, complete with six distinctive outlet pipes to help the 911’s respective 340-horsepower 3.4 and 400-horsepower 3.8-liter flat-six engines breathe more easily, allowing for increased performance capabilities for the legendary Porsche sports car.
