GEMBALLA GT CABRIO
GEMBALLA GT CABRIO
The 991 Carrera S incarnation of Porsche’s evergreen 911 is a smooth and elegant design that reflects its maker’s second decade of the 21st Century interpretation of this 50 year-old living classic.
The GEMBALLA GT CABRIO stamp puts a bolder face on this sleek Coupe, using lightweight carbon-fibre aero components, even larger wheels and a six outlet exhaust to express its latent energy in a much more extrovert way. Call it the Carrera’s evil twin if you will, but the GEMBALLA GT CABRIO version clearly likes to party.
Wheels, Suspension and Brake System
Engine and Performance
The face of the GEMBALLA GT aerodynamics package is the strongly contoured front bumper.
Within its relatively smooth surface the new rear bumper features a central recess book-ended by vertical reflectors. Below this line, the central diffuser is flanked by a modern re-interpretation of the famous twin triple exhaust outlets that were a distinctive GEMBALLA motif started by the legendary AVALANCHE from the 1980s.
Suspension, Wheels and Brakes
While the factory PCCB Brakes are very effective, GEMBALLA GT owners have the option of a revolutionary new brake system developed for GEMBALLA by Brembo. With their lightweight machined billet callipers, these incredibly powerful brakes offer unimpeachable fade resistance as well as low weight. GEMBALLA’s quest for low unsprung mass resulted in the ultra-light GForged-one forged alloy wheels that come in ‘Black Magic’ or ‘Gunmetal’ finishes, with a polished Diamond Cut finish for the spoke faces available as an option. Despite these wheels being 21-inches in diameter, a special forging process ensures that these very strong one-piece wheels are lighter than the 20-inch factory alloys that they replace.
Exhaust & Engine
The Porsche flat-six has a distinctive sound of its own, but EU current legislation means that the new water-cooled soundtrack is somewhat muted compared to its predecessors. While it is as quiet as the standard exhaust around town, thanks to a valve control system that allows you to open the sound floodgates at the touch of a button, GEMBALLA’s six outlet stainless steel exhaust system can burble and roar with the best of the old air-cooled 911s. Taking its styling cues from the six-pipe exhaust on the iconic 1980s AVALANCHE, the tailpipes look amazing. However, this exhaust might be too much show for some, so a more conventional four-pipe exhaust with polished tips is also available.
Choosing a GEMBALLA car is making a statement that can be further underlined by a matching bespoke interior. When it comes to a personal choice of colour and trim materials, the sky is the limit. High-quality leather and fine fabrics - plain or patterned - add to the feeling of unbridled luxury, and even the smallest switches and panels can be covered in fine leather or colour-coded. Trim insert panels in aluminum, stainless steel, carbon, wood, or even diamonds can all be handcrafted to complete a unique interior portrait. The experience and attention to detail of GEMBALLA’s master craftsmen and upholsterers guarantees a perfect result that will surprise and delight the owner. This is automotive haute couture at its finest. GEMBALLA’s bespoke programme also accommodates audiophiles and fans of technology, and anything from state-of-the-art multi-media to a built-in fridge to cool your champagne can be integrated into an interior.
