News Gemballa Porsche 911 Turbo Leaves Us Speechless

Gemballa Porsche 911 Turbo Leaves Us Speechless

Some would say there’s absolutely no reason to tune or mess with a Porsche 911 Turbo. Gemballa disagrees.

Hence the German tuner’s latest creation, the Gemballa GTR 8XX Evo-R. They have taken a Porsche 911 Turbo and increased power by nearly 50% while also giving it a very agressive signature look that you’ll either love or hate.

Or perhaps, like us, you’ll have no reaction when looking at the Gemballa 911 Turbo. For the record, we have no issue with tuners taking an already great car and making it better. We also usually love what Gemballa does.

In this case, we’re not sure. Maybe it’s the visible welds, maybe it’s the ridiculous wing… Who knows. There’s something about it that just doesn’t click. It’s not bad or ugly, it’s just… Weird.

Like if a 911 Turbo had slept with a GT2 RS. Yeah, that’s probably the best way to describe it.

More Power Than You Could EVER Need From a Porsche 911

The Gemballa Porsche 911 Turbo isn’t lacking power, that’s for sure. The 3.8-liter flat-six that powers the traditional car has been bumped from the Turbo S’ 572 horsepower to 807 horsepower. That makes this the most powerful 911 you can buy.

You’ll reach 100 km/h in just 2.38 seconds and 200 km/h in 7.5 seconds on way to a top speed of 370 km/h.

No info exists on pricing or availability, and we’re thinking North Americans would have a tough time getting their hands on a Gemballa 911, but if you have a lot of disposable income and can live with the car’s odd design, go nuts.
