Gemballa GT Aero 1 styling package for the 2012 Porsche Cayenne

Article by Christian A., on March 8, 2012

Gemballa GT AERO 1 modular styling package comes with a lot of appeal mostly due to its subtlety. There’s a group of fans who don’t want their Cayenne conversion to mean a drastic change. The AERO 1 Kit is ‘Made in Germanym’ just like all Gemballa aerodynamic parts, uses light and strong carbonfiber.

This modular concept means that the parts can be bought individually. All the AERO 1 parts are direct replacements for the original components and offer a precise fit to the factory mounting points. Gemballa chief Andreas Schwarz said that what this means is that they could be quickly installed and just as easily removed if necessary when the vehicle is sold.

Cayenne gets more gravitas due to its AERO 1 front bumper/spoiler. It has been noticed that the slightly bigger second-generation car is inferior compared to its predecessor. The new front bumper/spoiler provides a visually lower appearance. It is emphasized by the side skirts and deeper rear bumper, which is a perfect frame to the twin exhaust outlets.

The 22-inch diameter, ultra-light, forged alloy wheels appear to be bigger than they actually are due to its five thin spokes. This also helps in the Cayenne’s proportions to make it look smaller.

These 22-inch wheels are lighter than the 20-inch factory wheels. Gemballa aims to boost improve performance with no weight penalty. The AERO 1 conversion is the first in Gemballa’s tuning program for the new Cayenne. It provides access to a much bigger and wider customer base but he also needs a full house body conversion with engine tuning.

The 2012 Porsche Cayenne is more spacious, more dynamic, and more efficient than ever before. It is also lighter and points into the future of sporty yet elegant design and of advanced technology.

The new generation Porsche Cayenne series is led by the Cayenne S Hybrid, which is the carmaker’s first production car with hybrid drive. The new generation models are paving the way when it comes to modern efficiency, with up to 23% reduction in fuel consumption compared to that of previous models.

Like every Porsche, the Cayenne was developed in accordance with Porsche’s Intelligent Performance principle, which means more power on lesser fuel, lower CO2 emissions, and greater efficiency.

Three out of five Cayenne models remain below the New European Driving Cycle’s fuel consumption limit of 10 liters per 100 kilometers. A couple of models also stay below the limit for emission, which is 200 grams of CO2 per kilometer. These two models are the Cayenne S Hybrid, which boasts a CO2 emission rating of 193 g/km, and the Cayenne Diesel, with an emissions figure of 195 g/km.

This significant fuel consumption reduction throughout the Porsche Cayenne range is the result of Porsche's introduction of a new 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission plus Auto Start Stop and a wide range of gear increments, recuperation of on-board network, consistent weight reduction, variable overrun cut-off, intelligent lightweight construction, and thermal management on engine and on transmission cooling circuit.

Moreover, the Cayenne benefited from a combination of weight-optimized materials and from concept changes such as a new, extra-light all-wheel drive, thus keeping its overall weight down. For instance, the Cayenne Turbo’s weight has been cut by no less than 185 kg despite improved product substance and a higher all-round safety standard.
