Vorsteiner V-GT is a Porsche 991 Dressed for Success [w/ Video]
The new Porsche 911 (known to Porsche employees and enthusiasts as the 991) is the biggest, fastest, most powerful and most civilized 911 yet. It’s also great looking, immediately recognizable as a 911 while still looking thoroughly modern. Needless to say, we’re quite fond of it.
What we aren’t fond of, though, is the fact that most 991 Carreras and Carrera 4s will end up looking basically the same. Yes, Porsche does offer some body kit and wheel options, but they really don’t do anything for us, visually speaking. Thankfully, aftermarket companies also offer additional wheel and cosmetic choices. And the newest aftermarket company to do so is Vorsteiner.
Dubbed the V-GT 991, the body kit adds a carbon fiber front splitter with integrated brake ducts, sculpted side skirts, and a rear diffuser. There’s also a subtle ducktail spoiler on the engine cover. In addition to altering the stock 991’s looks, Vorsteiner says the kit also adds downforce, and does so without altering the front-to-rear aero balance. Stylish and functional? Doesn’t get much sexier than that.
Oh wait, it does. Just add the 19-, 20- or 21-inch forged aluminum wheels and Brembo brakes. You want interior upgrades? Vorsteiner will throw in a set of floor mats and a trunk mat. You want power upgrades? Well, you’ll have to look elsewhere if you deem the Carrera’s 350hp or Carrera S’s 400hp to be inadequate. Just be ready to spend more money on top of the as-yet-undisclosed sum you’ll be spending on the V-GT upgrades.
