Porsche 911 Went to Geneva in Mansory Clothing

The German subsidiary of the Swiss tuner Mansory brought along to the 2009 Geneva Auto Show one of the "house specialities", a bulked up Porsche 911, aimed at presenting the company's comprehensive tuning program for the 911 range. The program focuses on improving the aerodynamics, engine performance and handling of this sports car icon.

To meet these requirements, saving weight was crucial for Mansory. As a result, body components are made of Polyurethane Reaction Injection Molding (PU-RIM) materials. The core part of the body kit is a lift-reducing front mount posting a sportive while the carbon hood, in connection to the front apron, allows for further customization.

The Mansory 911 rolls on one-piece wheels, with five double spokes measuring 8.5x20 inches at the front and 12x20 inches the back. To enhance the grip, Mansory uses Michelin Pilot Sport wheels sized 245/30 at the front and 325/25 at the rear. The visual impact of the 911 is more powerful than in a series version, as the car's ground clearance was lowered by 30 mm.

Changes to the interior were not left behind. Leather on the seats and dashboard aside, Mansory let interior trim choice to the consumer, who can individualize the car any way he/she sees fit.

Changes made to the 911 engines were not drastic, but Mansory did change some existing parts with modified version of the respective pieces. A new sport air filter and exhaust systems were introduced, making it possible for the vehicle to accelerate from naught to sixty faster than the series version.

The Swiss tuner began spring offensive on the eve of the 2009 Geneva Auto Show. The event witnesses, alongside the 911, the company's design pack for the 955 Cayenne, as well as the power monster Bugatti LINEA Vincero.
