More aggressive styling doesn't go unnoticed.
Porsche is the definitive brand when it comes to evolving a certain model. That model is, of course, the Porsche 911. It's still butt-engined after all these years. Though now turbocharged, the flat-six engine also remains. While the interior has become a luxury and high-tech wonderland, the 911's exterior still retains its same general shape and silhouette. The 911 can't be mistaken for anything else.
But this isn't stopping Porsche from finding ways for customers to upgrade their cars, as these new offerings from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur prove. Presenting the SportDesign and Aerokit packages, available specifically for the 992 911 Carrera.
The SportDesign package includes a revised front apron with a spoiler lip. The rear end has a new bumper section featuring a new air intake and outtake. This package can also be combined with optional side skirts which Porsche says provide an optical effect of lowering the car. Although Porsche doesn't specifically say so, we figure this package can be fitted to both the 911 Coupe and 911 Cabrio.
The same can't be said for the Aerokit. It's based on the SportDesign package but comes with several additional aerodynamic upgrades. These include a new front spoiler, a fixed rear spoiler and a fixed rear wing that's directly inspired by the brand's GT lineup. Think 911 GT3 aero elements without the GT3 price tag. Side skirts are also included. This Aerokit isn't just something that's bolted on because it looks cool.
It was developed over a period of several months by engineers at Porsche's Weissach development center. The kit optimized both the 911's design and function. Wind tunnel testing was conducted in order to ensure the reduction of uplift forces over both the front and rear axles. Both kits can now be ordered and are available in the 911's exterior body color or in partial high-gloss.
The SportDesign pack, including the front and rear bumpers, costs $4,890 and $3,240 for just the front end. The side skirts alone cost $1,290. The Aerokit is an additional $6,910 on top of the 911's sticker price.
