Gemballa unveils GT package for the 2012 Porsche 991 Carrera

Article by Christian A., on March 8, 2012

Tuning firm Gemballa displayed its new 991 package at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show. The new 991 Porsche Carrera is believed to be the new class benchmark. It has been so impressive that fans have remarked that it demonstrates that the iconic Porsche 911 spirit is alive. The performance and the driving dynamics of the Carrera S PDK have just been so exceptional that it is being compared to the outgoing GT3.

Presently, the GT package makes its debut with new front and rear bumpers and side skirts. These Gemballa parts are designed to have a precise fit to the car with the use of factory mounting points.

They are a straight replacement for the original parts and the conversion is totally reversible in case the owner ever decides to use the standard parts again. It also comes with a set of 21-inch ultra-light forged alloy wheels, which are not as striking as the 19-inch wheels on the basic Carrera or the 20-inch wheels fitted on the Carrera S.

Andreas Schwarz, who encouraged his wheel supplier to make innovations in both design and construction, said that the priority was to lower the unsprung weight even as it went up a wheel size.

Lastly, the Gemballa exhaust with its unique six outlet pipes, is aiding the 340hp 3.4, and 400hp 3.8 litre flat-six engines in breathing more easily and having a deeper and more distinguishing voice.

Gemballa, a well-respected Porsche tuner, has worked on the 911 for over half of the model’s life. Aside from its GT package, there will also soon be a new Avalanche. Gemballa CEO, Andreas Schwarz, said: "Creating an even more individual appearance for this iconic sports car is a natural step for Gemballa, and we are proud to present our GT package for the new Carrera.”
