POLISHED BY THE WIND
The Porsche 991 Carrera S Cabriolet with GEMBALLA GT aerodynamics and
The new 991 Carrera Cabriolet is the latest "air-cooled" 911
to stir the Porsche driver's emotions with 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
The heart of the visual makeover is the GEMBALLA GT aerodynamic
package, which starts with a new, front bumper/spoiler section with
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
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 with its
valve-operated sound control feature gives the car the soundtrack to
match its looks.
In line with the GEMBALLA philosophy of low weight and optimum
quality, all these aerodynamic components are made in Germany from top
These parts are dimension controlled by state-of-the-art laser
measuring equipment to ensure a precision fit with 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
Even with 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 with 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 with 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 industry. That tradition continues today, offering
customers complete freedom of material and colour choice.
