2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Black Bison Edition by Wald International

2013 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Black Bison Edition by Wald International

Despite having its own auto show next month, Japanese tuner Wald International is making the trip to Las Vegas to attend another auto show.

Maybe it’s using frequent flier miles...

Whatever the case may be, Wald International will be in attendance at the 2013 SEMA Auto Show and it’s bringing its new program for the Porsche Cayenne to show American customers exactly how the Japanese roll when it comes to aftermarket tuning.

Full details surrounding the program have yet to be revealed, although you only need to take a long look at the photos to determine that it’s going to come with enough new components to render the design of the standard Cayenne irrelevant.

A wide-body kit is the obvious take-away from the program, of which it includes a new front bumper, revised side skirts, extended wheel arches, a new front splitter, LED lights and a ventilated hood. It’s interesting that none of these components are overly distinctive on the standard Cayenne, making this Wald International kit an essential addition to showcasing what the Cayenne can look like with a mean mug to complement its powerful engine.

Speaking of the engine, there’s no word on any performance upgrades so expect to see the same 4.8-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine that produces 500 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, allowing the car to hit 62 mph in 4.7 seconds to go with a top speed of 172 mph.

2011 - 2014 Porsche 911 by Misha Designs

There is one month until the 2013 SEMA show opens its gates, but we already have a pretty good idea on a lot of what will be displayed in Las Vegas. Today, Los Angeles based tuner, Misha Designs, released the first images of a pretty cool body kit it prepared for the Porsche 991 and that will be on display at SEMA in November.

As usual, this Misha Designs body kit takes a regular 991 and pushed the sports car’s look to a whole new level of style. The kit includes new front bumper, hood, side skirts, a rear bumper with diffuser and a rear spoiler.

The body kit can be applied to all Porsche 991 models, starting with the 2012 model year, and it can be ordered from the tuner immediately after the show.

2013 Porsche 911 by Caractere Exclusive

2013 Porsche 911 by Caractere Exclusive

European auto tuners aren’t usually present in mass in a show like SEMA, but Belgian tuner Caractere Exclusive is not only making the exception, they actually went to Las Vegas to present their latest aerodynamic kit for the new Porsche 911.

Built from PU rim, Caractere Exclusive’s body kit features a number of new components, highlighted by a new front bumper with integrated air intakes and air outlets. The kit also includes a new set of side skirts with their own integrated cool air intakes and air outlets, a new rear spoiler, and a rear wing that comes with an integrated third brake light and air intake.

A new sport exhaust system with valve control and dual round tailpipes was also installed to the Porsche, improving its sound and unleashing its full-throttle fury for all to hear. From there, Caractere Exclusive fitted it with a set of either 20- or 21-inch three-piece forged wheels. These wheels not only enhance the car’s look, but they also improve its overall handling and driving characteristics by putting more rubber to the road.

2012 Porsche Panamera GTM by Misha Designs

2012 Porsche Panamera GTM by Misha Designs

We are getting closer and closer to the official launch date of the 2012 SEMA Show, so the number of packages announced for the event keeps growing. The newest kit is from Misha Design and it’s a very cool GTM body kit based on a Porsche Panamera provided by JC Custom.

The GTM kit will actually be available in two options: a GTM kit for the regular Panamera body and another kit with wide body rear fender flares. The rest of the kit will be the same regardless of the width chosen. It will include a new front bumper with a gloss black lip and large air intakes, new front wings, new side skirts, flared rear arches, a big rear diffuser, a new roof spoiler, and a new decklid spoiler.

The final version of the Panamera will be painted by JC Customs in a matte gray metallic, not the white seen in these preliminary images. The gray finish will then be combined with a new set of 22" Govanna MECCA wheels provided by WTW Corp and new tailpipes.

More details on the Porsche Panamera GTM by Misha Designs will be released during the 2012 SEMA Auto Show, so stay tuned!

1989 - 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo Hoonigan by Rauh-Welt

1989 - 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo Hoonigan by Rauh-Welt

Japanese company Rauh-Welt Begriff (RWB) brought two impressive vehicle to the 2011 SEMA Auto Show. The first was a Porsche 911 RWB Pandora One and the second is this impressive 911 Turbo Hoonigan - a model based on a Porsche 964.

The 911 Turbo Hoonigan combines a white exterior paint job with a Lobster Red interior and red Fifteen52 wheels wearing Pirelli P Zero tires. The car’s ride was also lowered by an inch and a half thanks to a new sports suspension system.

The Porsche 964 presented at the show is currently owned by former 0-60 Magazine editor-in-chief, Brian Scotto. He drove the car for over 850 miles just to get to the 2011 SEMA Auto Show in time, where it celebrated the launch of the Ken Block’s new Hoonigan brand. With a maiden vehicle like this Porsche and Ken Block’s involvement, we expect to hear the name "Hoonigan" a lot in the upcoming months.

1990 - 1993 Porsche 911 RWB Pandora One

1990 - 1993 Porsche 911 RWB Pandora One

One of the cars that really stood out to us at the 2011 SEMA Auto Show was this particular Porsche 911 (964) that was jointly built by two industry heavyweights, Mark Arcenal of Fatlace and RWB’s very own, Nakai-san.

The creation, called the RWB Porsche 911 Pandora One, is a testament to the highly influential skills of the two car builders. Before any modifications took place, RWB and Fatlace stripped down the car and all of its road equipment to give way for a new racing set-up, including a new full roll-cage. After that, two Recaro Pro-Racer SPG seats were installed and fitted along with Stack gauges. In addition, the 964’s exterior was treated to a full compliment of aerodynamic parts courtesy of Rauh-Welt Begriff, highlighted by the enormous wing on the rear of the sports race car. Other touches done on the 964 include a satin green paint finish by TNT, new KW V3 coilovers to replace the car’s standard springs and shocks, and a new set of 18" RWB wheels built by Rotiform wrapped in Falken tires on the front and Azenis tires on the back.

One unique feature of the Pandora One is a special remote-operated hydraulic lift system built by KW called the HLS System. The set-up allows the Porsche to create as much as 1.75" of additional ground clearance with just a push of a button.

Meanwhile, the car’s race-spec engine was handled by FFTEC Motorsports, which in turn took the turbo engine and tuned it to produce 6psi of boost and 398 horsepower. While that number is what’s underneath the hood of the 911 for now, the car is expected to back into FFTEC’s Mustang dyno, where the company is looking into pulling out 15psi of boost. Figure that out and you’ll probably get an output that’s near the 550-horsepower area.

Falken at the 2009 SEMA Show

Falken at the 2009 SEMA Show

Speaking of tire smoking drift cars and Porsches, another familiar face at the 2009 SEMA Show was Falken with a pair of very different blue and green high performance machines to show off what Team Falken is all about. It is nice to see that one manufacturer can be so successful in two completely different disciplines of motor sport.

Representing the world of drifting where goal is to get sideways, light up the tires and hope for an outstanding crowd reaction in a matter of corners was Formula D driver and recent Japanese export Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s competition drift car, a 2010 Ford Mustang with enough supercharged Detroit iron under the hood to go through a set of Falkens in a matter of minutes. On the other hand, the Falken Porsche that races in the American Le Mans Series is about getting as much grip as possible from the sticky Falken slicks, keeping wheel spin to a minimum and hoping not to get the crowd on its feet until the end of the lengthy endurance race. If they got excited any sooner, it would probably signal the end of the car’s day. However as different as the setup on each of these cars is, they are both able to excel at their particular brand of motor sport.
