Let’s face it, the new Porsche 911 (991) is not enjoying a good reputation in terms of reliability these days. A lot of customers are experiencing problems with their cars, and as for the GT3 version, well, you all know about those fires. Chances are the new 991 Turbo models are also going to be problematic.
So if you fancy a Porsche 991 Turbo, a second-hand 997 generation is probably a better bet. And that is not a bad thing at all. For starters, the 997 is cheaper, and it has the full hydraulic steering which is miles better than the 991’s electric system. And as for the looks, there are kits like this V-RT treatment from Vorsteiner that leave no trace of old age in the car’s appearance.
This new version of Vorsteiner Porsche 997 Turbo kit, finished in a menacing black, consists of revised bumpers featuring a massive chin spoiler at the front and an awesome rear diffuser that envelops the tailpipes. You also get new side skirts, a larger rear wing, and extra carbon fiber air vents. The tuner suggests its own set of 20-inch forged alloy wheels as the perfect finish for the program.
Upon request, Vorsteiner can also hook you up with some nice interior mods. But if you want extra power, you have to look elsewhere.
