Vorsteiner V-GT based on Porsche 991

Article by Christian A., on November 27, 2012

The Porsche 991 is our kind of car and recently the vehicle entered the Vorsteiner wokshop. The result is one of the best tuning kits developed for the new Porsche 991 Carrera. As you can see from the photos, the new Vorsteiner V-GT body kit includes a front spoiler with dual integrated brake duct cooling ducts and GT center splitter made of carbon fiber, as well as new side skirts that complete the lines of the new front and rear end.

Moreover, the side skirts feature an optional carbin fiber blade sill extension, capable to further assist with downforce. The rear end has also been upgraded and features a V-GT air diffuser made of carbon fiber and a new ducktail wing spoiler.

The design is completed by the 19, 20, or 21 inch forged wheels made of aluminum. Furthermore, the interior received new floor mats and trunk mats featuring the Vorsteiner logo. P.S. You may also want to check the video with the new Vorsteiner V-GT Porsche 991!

No matter where it is viewed from, it is clear that the style has evolved for the Porsche 911 Carrera. On the front for example, it is easy to see that it is now wider with the side air intakes being made larger. There are even new headlights. On the rear section, by putting in a variably extending and wide spoiler, those who are looking are able to get a clue about its higher power output. The other components have had their aerodynamics optimized, resulting in a good Cd value while lowering the lift.

Rounding off the changes in the rear are the lights which use LED technology and made narrower with a new design. Looking at it on its side, the larger alloy wheels and their new style are quite clear. By making the windscreen have a more convex shape, it gave the new 911 Carrera a character much more similar to a coupe. One thing that the 911 Carrera brings to the table is that it sets new benchmarks when it comes to the Porsche Intelligent Performance.

It utilizes a body composed of lightweight aluminum-steel which is then combined with a wide range of functions and new components. The result is a vehicle that delivers excellent driving dynamics while offering remarkable efficiency. A first for this model is that it is the first Porsche sports car to have the auto start/stop function. With this system, the vehicle is able to save as much as 0.6 liter for every 100 kilometers, using the New European Driving Cycle, or NEDC.

This function is included whether the 911 Carrera has the manual transmission or the seven-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), the latter being offered as an option. Using the module of the PDK, the 911 Carrera will also be the first ever passenger car to have the seven-speed manual transmission. Through the first six gears, which have a close ratio, the driver is able to access its excellent acceleration capability. Meanwhile the seventh gear has that quasi-overdrive quality which allows fuel economy to be enhanced.
