    997 Aerokit

    Just received a Porsche brochure containing pics of the Aerokit for 977. Looks exactly like the 'GT3' pics posted by sergini. The kit includes a reduced ride height for the car. Dont know if this was the case with the old 996 kit already.

    cheers turbolite

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Thanks Turbolite!
    Reduced ride height? Interesting!
    Could come with the 20 mm sports chassis standard but doesn't make much sense.
    Reduced ride height just for the sake of it? Could be too, but doubt it.
    Thanks for the info anyway.

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Reduced ride height, my assumption is that the front bumper is lower to the ground than the standard one .

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Don't know, if it has been posted before, but I like to share:


    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Thanks Rossi, it wasn't posted before

    I don't quite like the aerokit, specially the busy front. But the Sport Exhaust tips that this car has look better than in other pictures.

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    That front would look substantially better and more appropriately aggressive if it lost the " innner " lips . What were they thinking ? Looks like a smaller fish being swallowed whole in there .


    Re: 997 Aerokit

    I dont like it.

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    this car should have two tripple exhausts like the gemballa extremo

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    oh cant really see it on the first one.. here;s another one

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Or to echo the front, concentric rings of " twice pipes " exhaust tips on each side as Cheech and Chong used to say .

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Thanks rossi looks good , KF had posted it while ago but it was in black and white.

    And now get rid of that extra spoiler lip below the front spoiler and the whole thing could turn out right...

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    BTW, what do you think about the body-coloured rims, shown in the pic? In fact I think that is the only thing that looks good at that car with the Aerokit (and most probably they aren't included and must be paid seperately... )

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    It may not be the prettiest thing, but since it is essentially the same front as the Cup cars, we know it will provide a good amount of appreciated front downforce. I know lots of GT3 owners who are going to be impressed by the addition of the brake cooling slots in the lip spoiler. With both the Mk1& II GT3, brake airflow is not as good as the Turbo and GT2.

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Good eye as usual Rossi, I personally didn't even notice they were body color painted wheels, they look good in that pic... but I'm not sure in real life

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Wow, I really dont' think i'm liking this, now I'm a little scared that I won't like the looks of the 997 turbo? Odd enough, from what I've seen the 997 GT3 looks great.

    If I were going to put an aero kit of any kind(never but theoretically speaking) I would do the tech art kit, looks tons better than what Porsche has managed to scrape up here, disasturous, disgusting, disapointing.

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    Looks great

    Thanks for sharing!

    ciaoo

    Re: 997 Aerokit

    This 997 RUF RT12 ( right ) also has a 5 radiator opening bumper cap - but it's done so much better -smooth like the classic 911 form . No busy jutting/receding "fish swallowing a fish " look like on the coming factory aerokit where it looks like a second kit glued in front of another . C'mon PAG designers ! ( Maybe PAG can do a secret deal with the RUF designer on this piece )
