Gambella may have had some problems in the past year, but they have come through them nicely with the debut of the Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet with the Gambella GT technology and aerodynamics package. Gambella has a philosophy of optimum quality and low weight, making their aerodynamic components with top grade carbon fiber. The visual makeover starts with large lip spoilers for stabilizing downforce and a new spoiler/front bumper section with three large cooling air instakes which are part of the Gambella GT aero package. The aerodynamic design continues with new side skirts that lend well in connecting to the new rear bumper/valance that features a recessed panel that accentuates the width of the car.
The panel sits between a Gambella stainless steel, triple outlet exhaust system that features squared off tips rather than the usual rounded tips. That exhaust system, with its valve-operated sound control gives the vehicle the deeper voice to match its new look.
Even with no modifications to the engine, the car is claimed to go faster due to springs that are 30mm shorter, working with the factory PASM (Porsche electronic damping control system) brake system as part of the technology changes. Along with the newer suspension and braking package, GForged alloy wheels at a 21-inch diameter are used. With the design and lightweight construction, they are lighter than Porsche’s standard 20-inch wheels.
The price tag for the Gambella aerodynamics kit runs at about $26,070 U.S. (in Germany) that includes installation and paint. It is assumed that the package includes the sport exhaust system with a choice between two or three tailpipes. The GForged wheels are an additional $12,989 U.S. depending on your preference in the tires that are mounted. There is also a choice between “gunmetal” or “diamond-cut” finishes for the wheels, based on your preference for the overall look of the vehicle.
