2005 Rinspeed Indy news, pictures, specifications, and information

Rinspeed Indy. Swiss Performance meets the Brickyard

Rinspeed introduces the new Indy - based on the Porsche 997 Carrera S - at the IAA Frankfurt 2005

Following the traditional colours of the American oval and F1 race track at Indianapolis and the respective racing series, the renown Swiss Porsche tuner Rinspeed has - in cooperation wîth the internationally active paint produces Lesonal - restyled and repainted the Porsche 997 in the extraordinary colour white metallic. A colour which is also well connected to the Porsche factory and which will set a new trend for the coming years.

In the spirit of this racing tradition, the newly designed complete front skirt/bumper, side skirts, rear wing and rear skirt/bumper wîth integrated diffuser give the Porsche 997 not only an unmistakeable visual difference, but optimize the aerodynamical down force as well.

The four way adjustable coil-over suspension wîth individual height and stiffness settings lower the Rinspeed Indy by 35mm (1.4'). Two piece five-spoke aluminium wheels of the dimension 8.5x19 inches in front and 11x19 inches on the rear axle wîth Continental SportContact 2 tires of the sizes 235/35 and 315/25 ensure an ideal grip in turns and while accelerating or braking. The high performance eight piston brake system wîth front rotors in the dimension of 380mm x 32mm (15.25' by 1.25') axle are a tight fit within the wheel openings. The rear axle is not neglected by being fitted wîth 355m x 32mm (14' by 1.25') rotors.

The interior was left purposely very spartanic by the Swiss tuners to follow the original RS philosophy. The factory comfort seats have been exchanged wîth bucket seats which are colour matched on their back to the the outside body. The rear seats are deleted as a part of the Indy package as well. In order to steer the Porsche 997 even more precisely, the ergonomically formed §teering wheel and the shifting knob are covered wîth Alcantara.
