Want To Kit Out Your Porsche 911 In Carbon Fiber? Mansory Can ‘Help’

The current Porsche 911 is a good 50 percent heavier than the original, however it’s still considerably lighter than competitors like the Nissan GT-R or Chevrolet Corvette. If you want to trim even more weight from your Elfen though, Mansory can hook you up.

The Persian-owned German tuner is one of the few out there that makes its own carbon-fiber components in its own on-site autoclaves. Its abilities are properly showcased on this 911 Turbo S.

Mansory has equipped the all-wheel-drive sports car with an array of carbon-fiber components. To our eyes, it looks like the sort of forged carbon pioneered by Lamborghini. This technique is cheaper to manufacture than hand-laid fibers, and can result in an interesting, randomized appearance.

The list of components on this Porsche includes a new front hood, air intakes, headlight frames, splitter, side skirts, engine-compartment struts, and more – all fabricated out of the lightweight material. And there’s more inside, too, like the steering wheel, shifter, and other trim.

We couldn’t tell you, specifically, how much weight it might trim off the 911’s curb rating. But it certainly makes the otherwise (relatively) low-key design grab a bit more attention. Whether that’s a good thing or not is a matter of taste, which is not something Mansory has been known to exhibit in spades. But this is nowhere near as outlandish as some of the other mod jobs we’ve seen from the company. If you like what you see, the aftermarket firm offers an array of 15 different types of carbon fabric. That makes the company, in its own words, the “uncrowned carbon king.”

    Given the cheese element Porsche attracts, I’d expect this kit to sell well… I mean, how better to double cheese your Porsche, than with gobs and gobs of CF. I really think the peal n stick inserts are smashing! Especially when the edges curl up a touch.

    Yeah baby, keeping it classy!!!!
