2013 Gemballa 911 GT Cabriolet news, pictures, and information
POLISHED BY THE WIND | The Porsche 991 Carrera S Cabriolet with GEMBALLA GT aerodynamics and technology packageThe new 991 Carrera Cabriolet is the latest 'air-cooled' 911 to stir the Porsche driver's emotions wîth its familiar flat-six soundtrack. Now, the new GEMBALLA GT appearance package compliments the al fresco experience by taking the Cabriolet's eye appeal to the next level.
The heart of the visual makeover is the GEMBALLA GT aerodynamic package, which starts wîth a new, front bumper/spoiler section wîth three large cooling air intakes, and large lip spoilers to provide more stabilising downforce at speed.
The organic lines of the front spoiler extend into the deep side skirts that visually connect the new front to its rear counterpart. The new rear bumper/valance features a recessed panel whose strong top and bottom horizontal lines visually accentuate the width of the car.
The upright reflector lights at each end of the panel give a functional meaning to its extremities and the new composition gives the car a more three-dimensional appearance when seen from this aspect.
A diffuser sits between the distinctive triple outlet pipes of the GEMBALLA stainless steel exhaust system, which takes its design cue from the exhaust of the legendary GEMBALLA Avalanche of the 1980s. The 21st Century GEMBALLA look however, features squared off rather than rounded tips. The deeper voice of this sports exhaust wîth its valve-operated sound control feature gives the car the soundtrack to match its looks.
|Engine : 3.8 L., 6-cylinder|
Power: 400 hp
Torque: 324 ft-lbs
7-speed Manual, 7-speed Automatic
These parts are dimension controlled by state-of-the-art laser measuring equipment to ensure a precision fit wîth the factory bodywork and the original mounting points. As no bodywork modifications are required, the car can easily be returned to standard when the time comes to sell. The GEMBALLA GT aerodynamic-kit is on sale now starting at 19.860€ incl. VAT (in Germany) incl. paintwork and installation.
Even wîth the standard motor, the GEMBALLA Cabriolet is faster from point to point thanks to its uprated sports suspension and brakes. The 30mm shorter springs are calibrated to work wîth the factory PASM (Porsche electronic damping control system), while the brake system, developed for GEMBALLA by Brembo, is highly resistant to fade and allows you to set later braking points.
The new GForged-one alloy wheels wîth their choice of 'diamond cut' or 'gunmetal' finishes, come in an eye-catching 21-inch diameter. Thanks to modern forged, lightweight construction, they weigh less than the factory 20-inch wheels, benefiting ride and handling. The cost for a set starts at 9.895€ incl. VAT (in Germany) depending on the type of tyres fitted.
GEMBALLA was one of the pioneers of bespoke interior trim in the German tuning . That tradition continues today, offering customers complete freedom of material and colour choice.Source - Gemballa
