An exclusive German-based Porsche tuner known for some of the most eye-catching poster cars of the 1980s, Gemballa is synonymous with the most innovative, unusual, extreme, and expensive vehicle conversions. This 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet was originally configured for the European market and was customized by Gemballa for what was believed to be a show car for Pioneer audio during the 80s and 90s. It has been reimagined as a Slant Nose with wide fenders and features a set of matching BBS wheels along with a completely customized Ivory leather interior. A stunning representation of period style, this rare Gemballa 911 is now being offered for auction showing just under 32k miles on the odometer.
The car has been modified by Gemballa with wider flares for the wheel arches including Slant Nose style side air intakes and flat fenders with popup headlamps. Other additions include custom side skirts with air scoops, a rear valence with quad exhaust tips, a Gemballa-branded center tail panel, and a front valence with integrated fog lights. The car is finished in a custom shade of dark red and rides on matching three-piece BBS wheels with Gemballa logo center caps. Images of Gemballa manufacturer stampings are present on the bodykit and the Sumitomo tires show production date codes from 2000. The seller adds that the car remains unrestored since the original Gemballa conversion.
The interior has been completely reupholstered by Gemballa with Ivory leather and burgundy carpeting. Custom door panels have been installed along with Gemballa-branded electrically adjustable and heated sport seats, a multifunction steering wheel, Gemballa instrument dials, and a custom leather-wrapped dashboard and center console. The upgraded sound system includes subwoofers mounted beneath the seats as well as an aftermarket radio and CD changer.
This Carrera is equipped with a European-spec 3.2-liter flat-six engine driving the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transmission. An upgraded dual-exit exhaust has been installed and images of the undercarriage show newly replaced components as well as the engine and transmission case stampings.
This sale will include a clean title.
