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.

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 More

It was possible, but it’s still unfathomable how great Gemballa’s tuning is.

These two companies are known for releasing perfectly-designed tuned cars. Porsche 911 is already efficient; Gemballa just made it flawless.

No wonder this has become more efficient, the materials they have used are of amazing quality. This will be officially better than the other tuned versions of 911.

Porsche and Gemballa have a good partnership in providing bright ideas on how to create wonderful details of a car.

WOW! I can’t believe that they have managed to lessen the weight of the car for it to boost its speed.
