September 9, 2002 - 996 Turbo Look from Caractere and LLTeK
LLTeK is pleased to
announce that a new modified version of the Porsche Turbo look front bumper has
been created for all 996 styled cars through 2002 (USA years) in collaboration
with Caractere - Belgian high performance auto designers and manufacturers. At
a later date a version for model year 2003 will receive consideration.
There will be two versions of the 996 bumper; one version is for the Americas'
Porsche specification, while the second version will fit the Euro-spec car.
Both models utilize a new lightweight composite building material along with
genuine carbon fiber parts - a design fusion of appearance and function. The
lower carbon fiber section directs additional air to the front brake system
using the high pressure transfer method of moving air from the two newly
created lower brake ducts to the brake ducting and Venturis. This is a very
important performance brake gain for serious Porsche enthusiasts.
This performance upgrade takes about two hours to install (de-install and
re-install). A professional is recommended for the work. The bumper is a
full bolt-on bumper and fitting tolerances are as good or better than OEM.
Proper installation requires minor modifications to the factory rubber air
intakes (left and right) plus a small revision indentation cut to the front
LLTeK will make the parts available with optional factory match paint to
further reduce the cost of ownership. This is a new development with additional
details and pricing to be provided shortly. Under consideration are lower side
exterior panels plus a turbo look rear bumper with a lot of carbon fiber to
complete the upgrade. Over 70 pictures will be posted for your viewing
enjoyment over the next several weeks. In the meantime, here are a few images
to start the juices flowing.
