Last year, Gemballa unveiled the Aero 1 tuning kit based on the new Porsche Cayenne . For this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the tuner upgraded the kit and transformed it into Aero 2. The new kit adds a new aerodynamic package that increases the presence of the Cayenne.
The new kit includes all the elements offered in the Aero 1, like front bumper and spoiler, the rear bumper and the side skirts, but adds new wheel arch extensions and new side sills that made the Cayenne even wider. All the elements are made in carbon fiber. The new Aero 2 kit is offered with 22-inch forged wheels that weigh about the same as the factory 20-inch wheels. If you want to pay less, you can order the new wheels in a cast version.
The interior is also modified when compared to the Aero 1, and what we like the most are those yellow insertions.
Unfortunately, this is purely an aesthetic package, so there are no under-hood modifications.

Nature’s way is to perfect its creations step-by-step. GEMBALLA has developed its AERO packages for the Porsche Cayenne 958 using a similar evolutionary process.
The AERO 2 package is an extension of the AERO 1 kit introduced at the beginning of 2012, and further increases the presence of this premier SUV, while taking its aerodynamics to the next level.
The second generation Porsche Cayenne is a more elegant design than its predecessor, and appears more compact despite its greater overall dimensions. GEMBALLA uses a modular system to enhance the Cayenne’s individuality, while enabling owners to add to the entry-level AERO 1 package at any time.
The new AERO 2 kit includes all the components of its ‘little brother’ to which are added wheel arch extensions and connecting side sills that emphasise the Cayenne’s width, giving it an even more purposeful appearance.
As with other GEMBALLA styling conversions, all the AERO 2 components are made in Germany from the highest quality carbon-fibre. GEMBALLA aero components are designed to fit the original factory mounting points so no cutting or drilling is necessary. GEMBALLA ensures the precision fit of all its components, with tolerances controlled by state-of-the-art digital measuring equipment. “Our design process ensures that the highest fitting accuracy is achieved. This also makes repairs, or removal for subsequent sale in the case of a leased vehicle, straightforward and cost effective,” explained GEMBALLA CEO, Andreas Schwarz.
The modular system also allows various combinations and permutations by owners. For instance, someone who already has the AERO 1 Kit fitted, can install the AERO 2 wheel arches as the next step.
A distinctive set of alloy wheels always transforms a car, and GEMBALLA’s 22-inch wheels make a huge difference to the look of any Cayenne. These immensely strong 22-inch forged wheels keep unsprung weight down to around the same level as the factory 20-inch wheels. For those on a tighter budget, a cast version of this wheel design is also available.
GEMBALLA builds cars that look sporty, and feel light and responsive to drive, This lean and mean philosophy is entirely in line with the principles of evolution.
