…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Porsche 911 GT3 R?

Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid

Porsche’s latest 911 GT3 R is technically a hybrid, but don’t let that fool you into thinking they’re giving up speed and going green. Instead, this track monster features a system that’s similar to the KERS system that was developed for F1 racing, and which is designed to give the car a speed boost during acceleration through the use of small electric motors that assist the main engine.

If the technical terms don’t get you all hot and bothered, then maybe you should just let Porsche explain the car in their own unique way:

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Gemballa Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R?

Gemballa Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R

Gemballa is known to tune a Porsche into something else entirely, but their Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R (aka a 911 Turbo on steroids) raises the bar even further than their usual.

How much further?

850 HP and 690 ft-lbs of torque further, thanks to the pair of Garret T035 turbos strapped onto the enlarged 3.8L engine. GT3-R heads, a machined crank and new connecting rods also help.

It wouldn’t be a Gemballa though if they decided to leave the exterior alone, so they transformed the usually sleek and svelte 911 body into a menacing monster; with new rear fenders complete with larger air intakes covering the rear wheels, a new lower front fascia to add extra grill, a vented hood to let some of the air out, GT headlights, a dual-wing rear spoiler, 19-inch alloys, and a rear apron to cover the four new exhaust tips.

In case you didn’t quite get the message the first time, Gemballa would like to remind you: Subtlety is overrated.
