Features
The basis is formed by the edo 996 GT2 R, which had already been modified in the areas of brakes, suspension, engine, transmission, aerodynamics, exhaust system, interior, wheels/tires and light-weight windows. The only thing missing to be up-to-date is the look of the current Porsche 997!

  • Complete front fascia: front skirt, radiator air inlets, brake cooling ducts
  • Front fenders modified and widened 
  • Fender liners
  • Mesh inserts front and rear
  • Front lip spoiler in carbon fiber
  • Modified fuel filler door
  • Litronic headlight kit
  • Brake system: Rotor diameter front/rear 380/350 mm with 4-piston fixed calipers
  • Suspension: Adjustable edo/KW sport suspension with individually adjustable compression and rebound damping
  • Wheel dimensions: Tires: Michelin Pilot, front 235/45 18, rear 335/30 18 on 10” and 13” wheels
