Oops. I hate folks that tease a link.

Looks like a 997 Turbo went to Bad Ass School but, underneath the Gemballa Suit, it’s a non-S 997.1.

If it were impersonating a GT3 RS or something else then I would think the same, but since it takes cues from other cars but doesn't claim to be them I'm good with this.

I know it's a little out there for some but it's not like any modern 911 is slow, it's just not as fast as some of the more performance-driven models.

I remember those crazy Gemballa designs from the 80s...wow some of those were out there!

From PCARMarket description:
$15k carbon fiber interior package from Wicked Motorworks.
CF for appearance purposes is a pet peeve of mine. And to spend that much on bling... :redface: :rolleyes:

Spend $150k for a CF tub? That I'm good with. (Not gonna do it, but kudos to those who can...)

meh, I'm with Fernando on this one. The modern 997.1 and beyond are pretty damn good cars, just not compared to their more performance enhanced brothers. For about $8K more, you can do things to improve it beyond S specs. Mine has had this work done. Mine still looks like an innocent non-S, but it goes quite well, and sounds great (Fabspeed this and that, plus some other stuff). Hey, I like red too :evilgrin:

Which those bozo's didn't do.

There's nothing wrong with a wolf suit on a wolf.

I *like* that Gemballa kit.

If they'd done something useful to the motor then I could like the whole package. As it stands...

All hat. No cattle.

Don't spend money making your car look like a "race car" and not spend a single penny on performance upgrades.

Don't bring a wet noodle to a knife fight.
