One conversion company, however, wants to the take the tired rumble of Porsche's aged boxer engine and give it new life with something electric. This is the 1979 Porsche 911 E.

This year, Gemballa adopted a comparative strategy with its widebody GT Concept. Следующее. 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet Review - Продолжительность: 10:08 TrackWorthy 163 331 просмотр.

Do you think the Porsche 911 Turbo is a capable driving tool? Well it is. At the SEMA show this year, the German tuner is presenting the Gemballa GT Concept, based on the 911 Turbo but tuned up to 828 horsepower instead of the standard 540.

German Porsche tuner Gemballa has just released their latest monster. The GT Concept takes a 911 Turbo and boots power to the stratosphere.



The Gemballa GT concept debuts today at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. That's the aftermarket and performance car show. The GT takes a new Porsche 911 Turbo, not exactly a car you'd call slow, and makes it quicker. The 3.8L flat-six engine gets new intake manifolds with carbon plenums, reworked cylinder heads, new turbos, a new exhaust, and a new computer. It adds up to 828 hp, up from the standard car's 540. Peak torque jumps too, up to 702 lb-ft.

Singer and Williams collaborate on lightweight Porsche 911 engine

  Singer and Williams collaborate on lightweight Porsche 911 engine Anyone interested in another vintage Porsche 911 restored and modified by Singer Vehicle Design?Singer and Williams haven't yet released all the details on the project, but we know the engine will make 500 horsepower and boast a rev limit over 9,000 rpm. Carbon fiber, magnesium, titanium, and even Inconel parts combine to save what we're sure will be a great deal of weight over the stock Porsche bits and pieces. "Singer is delighted to be working with Williams Advanced Engineering and Hans Mezger to offer our clients a 'next level' of restoration and modification services for their Porsche 911s," said Rob Dickinson, Singer founder.

SEMA is an interesting show, where mad scientists and engineers take cars and trucks and turn them into ungodly, brutal beasts on wheels. Vehicles like the

Gemballa isn’t a name we hear too much anymore on our shores, but the German tuner appears to be back in full force, unveiling the 828 - hp Gemballa GT Concept at SEMA. Based on the current 991-generation Porsche 911 Turbo.

The GT gets more than just more power, though. Gemballa has added massive fender flares, capable of hiding 325/25ZR21 rear tires, with 255-width rubber up front. Those flares are carbon-fibre, as is the new front skirt, rear bumper with diffuser, and the adjustable rear wing. It makes the car 30 mm wider up front and a massive 50 mm wider in the rear.

To help stop a car that can hit 100 km/h in 2.38 seconds, and 360 km/h flat-out, Gemballa adds carbon ceramic brakes. Six-piston callipers in the front, four in the rear.

The interior gets some upgrades as well. The GT has nicer leather, with Alcantara for the trim, seats, and roll bar.

Gemballa has been building big-power Porsches since 1981. The company says the show car is just a concept, not yet a production vehicle like their Panamera-based Mistrale, or last-generation 911-based Avalanche. But you can buy the GTR 8XX Evo-R BiTurbo engine. They'll sell you the brakes, interior, and bodywork too. So it's a concept, but they'll be happy to build you one. Bring your chequebook.
