    gemballa 750hp advertising

    sorry if its a repost.initially ,gemballa had problem with reliability of that kit ,now it seems ok

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    What are the performance numbers of that baby?

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    Gotta cost a small fortune. Nice though.

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    Full bodykit costs around 27k and 28k for the engine conversion. This is what I heard. OMG!! awesome car

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    I think it's absolutly useless. 750bhp in a SUV, why not a 1000?
    It's not just useless, it's ugly as hell. the rims, the body, the everything...
    I don't know much about gemballa but for what I've seen so far, everything they sell is ugly tuning. That kind of tuning isn't right for porsches. It makes me think of teenagers who heavily tuned their peugeot 206, opel astra, vw golf and so on with formula 1 spoilers and big shiny alloys that are too big for the car or lower the suspension as much as they can, so they actually clean the snow on the roads in spring time and can't park their cars without smashing the body...

    Have you ever seen a ferrari with that kind of crap ? NO, because it would be a terrible thing to do. It's ugly and tasteless. If you can do it with a small car, it's criminal to do it on a car like a porsche, a ferrari (same thing with aston martin, lotus and so on)

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    And now only gemballa can install that kit. So even if you want to get that kit you have to send ur car to gemballa usa or gemballa germany.

    I don't know if it was this kit but I recently heard about a Gemballa Cayenne who has been brought to the dealership with a broken engine.
    We all are intelligent people, how can we believe that a tuned car with 300 HP over factory specs could be as reliable as the original product?
    In my opinion, this 750 HP Cayenne Turbo is just a showcar, not something you can drive every day at top speed, using it's full power. With my driving style, this thing wouldn't survive even one month. No, thanks.

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    totally agree rc..

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    I saw this Gemballa Cayenne at the SEMA show in Las Vegas this week. The literature at the stand said the price was $360,000.!! It didn't really impress me and certainly at that price there are several other cars I would rather have.

    The Specialty Equipment Market Association(SEMA) trade show is the largest non-public automotive show in the USA, and probably the world. With over 1,500 vehicles and thousands of business displays in three large exhibition halls and a large outdoor lot, the show attracts about 100,000 industry attendees to Las Vegas each November.

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    $360,000 cayenne, thats just not right

    Re: gemballa 750hp advertising

    Agree

    So is this what it takes to get rid of the hesitation BTW, just hit 6k miles and like clockwork it was ready for another quart of oil. 1 qt/1k miles ever since new.

    I have said it before...more power without addressing the hesitation issue is just more wasted power.

    If Gemballa or any other tuner can solve the hesitation problem, Porsche can and better solve it also.

    I have wondered for a while if the hesitation wasn't by design so Porsche could get a simple model upgrade down the line. The "changed accelerator pedal characteristics" wording in the Powerkit press release clearly indicates that Porsche recognizes this as a problem and is already moving in that direction:

    "The 50 HP power increase is achieved by an optimised flow design of the intercooler combined with further developed
    engine management. In conjunction with changed accelerator pedal characteristics, this results in an optimised torque buildup and even sportier engine characteristics. The maximum torque has increased from 620 to 700 newton metres and is available between 2,250 and 4,750 revolutions."
