Vorsteiner VRT Adds Va-Va-Voom to the Porsche 911 Turbo
You would be mighty hard pressed to truthfully label the latest 991-based Porsche 911 Turbo as slow. However, a more convincing argument could be made for calling it dull. Whereas the Discozoic Period original was the motoring equivalent of a Trump soundbite with its “whaletail” wing, flared fenders and propensity to fly tuchus-first into the scenery after just a nanosecond of inattention and/or incompetence from the helmsman, the latest Turbo is thoroughly sanitized and computerized, and even manages to look kinda tame by supercar standards.
Luckily, Vorsteiner has come along with a collection of cosmetic pieces that will at least provide this Porsche speed machine with more visual pizzazz. Vorsteiner calls it the VRT, and it’s a body kit that features completely new bumpers front and rear, grille and intake inserts, side skirts, front fenders with GT3 RS style vents, and a big GT3 RS style rear wing. They’ve also smoked the exterior light lenses and added striping to the sides and front trunklid.
As for wheels and tires, Vorsteiner has selected a set of its own 10-spoke center-lock wheels wearing super-low-profile Pirelli P-Zero tires. Expect the company to provide more details on the VRT package at the SEMA Show come November.
