    GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    I really like the look of the 997 GT3 front bumper....it looks sooo more agressive than the standard item. Will it fit my 08`Targa 4 ?? Has anyone seen it live ??

    Jo

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    Not seen it live but several people have fitted the GT3 bumper on various 997s over on six speed.

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    I think that if you can buy an aero kit from Porsche, it must have the same mounting points.
    On the other hand, I also think that each of the Porsche models is beautiful in its own sense and wouldn't mess with a good thing. Do you really want a Targa with a GT3 front and regular rear?

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    Yes you can buy the aerokit and fit it on

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    but RSjo, they (p-dealers) do not recommend it because and I quote "It would disturb the aerodynamic balance between front & rear"...


    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    Well if you plan to mount the front bumper mount the rear as well. Do not leave things messy

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    Most people comment that the GT3 front lip will frequently scrape in normal day to day driving. I am aware that the GT3 set up is lower altogether, but still installing the GT3 front bumper will make everyday life more difficult with your Carrera. just my 2 cents...

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    I got the Aerokit Cup on my 997S and its scraping all the darn time, the GT3 front bumper cannot possibly be any worse. I was also interested in fitting the GT3 front bumper, would it really affect the aerodynamics though? I mean the car does have the same dimensions as a 997S right?

    Side question, I know the GT3 front bumper has a lower lip that can be easily replaced in case it breaks/bends due to frequent ground contact etc.. the aerokit cup seems to have a similiar front lip, is it also as easily replaceable?

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    can the aero kit fit on a cab, i think it will look unique

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    I jumped in it today and ordered the original GT3 front. I looked at an aerokit equipped Carrera 2 in the shop and it looks the same exept it lacks the black vent in front of the hood.....(which I think looks great, especially on a white car) I could choose between the standard GT3 lip or the slightly deeper RS lip and went for the standard item. Hopefully it wont scrape everywhere. The Targa 4 is quite wide at the rear so I will start with the front and see if it looks Ok. If the rear looks to small I will change the rear later........

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    How much will they charge you for it Jo?

    Thanks.

    Re: GT3 front bumper on 997 ??

    My local Porsche center will charge app. 2200 us$ complete.
    I believe the RS rear bumper will cost about the same. I am looking for a conversion for the exhaust to get the center exit, but it seems Ihave to get a complete sportsexhaust to get this done A bummer when I just paid extra to get the original sports exhaust......

    Maybe I will just visit my local exhaust guy and see if he can work some magic with some pipes and a welder...
