Carbon specialist 1016 Industries carefully but effectively sharpens the Porsche 911 Turbo S of the 992 series. The price of the body kit isn't subtle at all, though.
These days, tuned sports cars usually come with a brute look. Huge cooling inlets here and XXL spoilers there like to compete with extra-wide fenders or a highly eye-catching paint finish for the viewer's attention. With 1016 Industries, a US tuner of all people is now proving that there is another way and that a body kit can blend harmoniously into the original lines of the base car.
This is a Porsche 911 Turbo S of the current generation 992. Like every Porsche conversion by the team from Florida's metropolis Miami, the program comes onto the market under the label of the 9Design sub-brand. But whether it's 9Design or 1016 Industries: The Swabian sports car receives a total of 54,065 dollars (currently the equivalent of almost 50,000 euros) in carbon fiber special treatment, which, as an alternative, involves individually available add-on parts in all body areas.
Wingtips front, back, side
It starts with a spoiler lip under the front apron with wingtips pulled up to the side and continues upwards with a new trunk lid. On the flanks, the new borders of the side air intakes and especially the side skirts are striking; The latter carry air guide elements that are pulled up at both ends. These can also be found on the side of the rear apron and merge into the new rear diffuser. In addition, there is the differently designed rear wing.
Unfortunately, 1016 Industries does not have any further information about the wheels from Anrky Wheels. The chrome-plated five-spoke rounds reveal a carbon-ceramic brake system with light-blue calipers, which Porsche appears to have installed ex works. The US tuner probably also worked on the chassis. Precise information on this? Unfortunately also non-existent!
Engine probably in series condition
Little is known about an increase in performance either. The 3.8-liter six-cylinder boxer with double turbocharging should therefore continue to deliver 650 hp, provide the highest possible torque of 800 Newton meters and the 992 Turbo S in 2.7 seconds from zero to one hundred km/h and a maximum of 330 km/h. accelerate h.
Apparently, 1016 Industries isn't into bang-on-the-buck optics. At least with the Porsche 911 Turbo S, whose design is subtly accentuated by the team from Miami. However, the reluctance stops when it comes to the price.
