2010 Porsche 911 Aerokit Cup Retrofitting news, pictures, and information
Porsche Tequipment with Four New Highlights for Individual RetrofittingStuttgart. Four new retrofit highlights from Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, are dedicated entirely to the spirit of sporting performance. Particularly the 19-inch Sport Classic wheels in the unmistakable look of Porsche's legendary Fuchs rims developed especially for the 911 Sport Classic built in a production run of just 250 units are an outstanding example of Porsche's history and a striking design feature of the 911 Carrera.
Re-interpreted in individual style, the wheels in five-spoke design wîth the rim star painted black, the wheel hump in gloss-lathed finish, and the Porsche logo in colour on the wheel hub, are a genuine eye-catcher. Introduced by Porsche for the first time in 1966, these unique wheels are now making an outstanding come-back. The new wheels measure 8.5 J x 19 ET 55 and come together wîth tyres in 235/35 ZR 19 (front) and, respectively, 11.5 J x 19 ET 50 wîth tyres in 305/30 ZR 19 (rear) on all current all-wheel-drive models of the 911 Carrera and Targa as well as the 911 Turbo at an all-in price per set of Euro 5,569.20 including VAT (cars wîth tyre pressure control Euro 5,866.70).
Another particularly sporting feature is the three-spoke sports §teering wheel wîth gearshift paddles for the PDK transmission already well known from the new 911 Turbo. Starting immediately, this unique leather §teering wheel wîth gearshift paddles behind the right and left §teering wheel spokes carried over from motorsport is available at a price of Euro 940.10 including VAT also for individual retrofitting on all versions of the 911, Boxster, Cayman, and Panamera wîth PDK and, starting in August 2010, on the new Cayenne wîth Tiptronic S.
The high-quality shift paddles are naturally made of metal. Through their stretched sickle shape, the gearshift paddles allow the driver to shift gears manually wîth perfect ease, from a wide range of individual holding positions on the §teering wheel. The driver shifts up on the right and down on the left.
The newly developed Aerokit Cup available on all versions of the 911 Carrera Coupé shows a close and direct link to the fastest brand trophy in the world, the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. At the front of the car the most outstanding feature is the new apron wîth its striking trim bars in the centre air intake and the characteristic spoiler lip. At the rear the unique rear lid wîth the wing fitted in position takes up the highly successful design of the former model. It almost goes without saying that all components have been optimised in Porsche's wind tunnel to improve both driving behaviour and aerodynamics.
Already available on new cars at a price of Euro 4,968.25 including VAT, the Aerokit Cup may now also be retrofitted on current models of the 911. In this case the price from Porsche Tequipment is Euro 4,522.00 including VAT, plus fitting and paintwork.
While so far the Aerokit wîth its particularly sporting look was not available to drivers of the 911 Cabriolet and Targa (997), the new, striking Sport Design front apron now closes this gap, wîth the spoiler lip matched aerodynamically to the regular rear spoiler. Naturally, the new front panel also fits on all other versions of the 911 Carrera and 911 Targa in the 997 model series. Finished in the same colour as the car itself, the front apron in Sport Design blends harmoniously wîth the overall contours and silhouette of the 911.
The Aerokit retails on new cars at a price of Euro 2,368.10 including VAT and is available from Porsche Exclusive. It may also be retrofitted individually by Porsche Tequipment at a price of Euro 2,159.85 including VAT, plus the cost of fitting and paintwork.Source - Porsche
