Under the new ownership, Gemballa is ready to continue business as usual, and as usual they’ve come up with an overdone and not so desirable kit for Porsche Cayenne, the new 2011 one. Well, Gemballa has been through some horrible things and we don’t wanna be mean to them, but this is one butt-ugly car!!
The new Cayenne Tornado uses carbon fiber body panels including bonnet, front wings, side sill covers, doors, front and rear bumper/valance and rear hatch outer skin. These bits together reduces the overall weight of the car by 70 kg. The car also gets fog lights and vertical LED daytime running lights which in combination with the new air ducts give the Cayenne a weird but mean face, like a dumb monster!
The main feature of the exterior however is the stacked round rear light design which is certainly unique but not so pretty. Here you also have four individual round exhaust outlets which are Gemballa’s signature.
The fenders of the Cayenne 958 are also buffed up to accommodate 10.0J x 22-inch with 295/35 ZR22 tyres on the front axle, and 12.0J x 22-inch with 335/30 ZR22 tyres at the rear. The uprated braking system is made by Brembo, GEMBALLA’s partner for brake component development and include 420 mm vented discs with six-pot callipers are used at the front, with 405 mm vented discs and four-pot callipers at the rear.
Other parts of the Tornado treatment for Porsche Cayenne include three tuning stage for the turbo engine with 580, 675 and 700 hp, and a bespoke interior package.
Gemballa will only make 30 examples of this Tornado.
