Porsche 991 Tuning at Geneva Auto Salon 2012
The Porsche 911 (991) can be found in many different variants and versions at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Not only Porsche itself, but also every Porsche tuner present in Geneva brought one or more versions of the Porsche 911 (991) Carrera (S) to the annual Swiss carshow.
RUF made the most radical changes to the 911 (991) showing two different versions; the first turbocharged 991 and the RUF RGT8, a 911 with RUF V8 engine. The other tuners – Gemballa, Lumma Design, SpeedArt, Sportec, and TechArt – mostly focused on the looks of the 991. They added new bodykits, wheels and interior refinements.
