• 2011 Porsche 997 TT Porschat Edition by By Design Motorsport

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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Yeah, as expected from the car is has an impressive exterior and detailing. However, I would be happier to see an engine upgrade for the car.

The platform of the vehicle seems vintage. However, the modification in the exterior is quite awesome. I like the detailing of the car.

Correct me if I’m wrong but is this the upgrade version of the 911? BTW, when talking about the design, I think this car has it. The body is crafted perfectly though they have made a minimum upgrade on the engine.

So much for the tuning package and modified design for the exterior I want to see an upgrade news on its engine. I bet this is one of the sportscar that fly very low!

By the way, I think a base 911 Carrera is a very nice car. I use to want a Twin Turbo or a GT3, but when on a budget I think the "Plain Jane" Carrera is a very nice alternative.

Great article. I love the 993. When Porsche left the 993 behind and built the 996 I wept. The 996 (in my opinion) is the ugliest 911 ever created. There is nothing appealing about the 996 and I almost gave up on Porsche until they released the 997.

The Porsche also got a GT2 styled wing blade, carbon fiber mirrors and a custom model name in carbon. An exhaust system by RUF has been installed to give it a very orgasmic exhaust note.

As expected from Design Motorsport. The whole package of the Porsche is extremely wonderful even if they made a few upgrades from the later version. The vehicle’s exterior uses a pretty wild approach, being fitted with multiple new elements.

How many different versions of the 911 are currently available? It seems like a new one is reviewed every couple of months.

A total amount of seven videos were made about the brand new generation Porsche Cayenne. The videos give an insight into the performance, safety, environmental aspects, design, comfort, transportation and audio features of the German SUV range.

I bet this baby will last a century. German car is know to be a rigid, agile, reliable and performer one. buying it is worthy every cents.

On the inside you’ll get leather, white stitches and a lot of carbon fiber outfitted within the steering wheel, door panels, center console, A/C surround system, a chrono package and the back seats.

I like Porsche but still wish they will go all out aggressive designs on future models. Gotta agreed they are getting soft and not a fan of conservative looking racing cars but I still find the Turbo models more exciting than the design of the Murcielago.

well let’s tal about the GT-R, gt r is grate, fast and very high tech, with those capabilities, computers are verry essential to gain such tremendous speed, with out it, It’s just a plain old family car

wow, I’m really impressed with this rear air vents and diffuser. I wonder how fast this baby can go.. It bet this baby can out run the Japanese pride Nissan GT-R.

I think the Design Motorsport overexagerated a bit on this one! On the back it looks very good, but on the side and on front the new added details do not blend well.

The CGS team is also designing and building handmade chrome moldings. Custom leather from Pecca Leather, one of CGS’s Cat-Back Exhaust Systems, and a Whipple twin screw supercharger producing close to 500hp complement the package.
