The 2012 Porsche Carrera 991 CLR 9 S by Lumma Design is one of several 911 (991) Porsche Carrera modified versions displayed in Geneva’s Auto Show in Switzerland this year.
Other companies like RUF, Gembella, SpeedArt and others exhibited their redesigned versions of the popular Porsche Carrera, but Lumma Design's model especially impressed most people mainly due to its subtle changes to the look of the car, while maintaining Porsche's integrity.
When Lumma Design, a company from Winterlingen, Germany, approached the task of redesigning a 911 Porsche Carrera, they decided to focus primarily on changing the look and style of the car. The greatest improvement to the Porsche's driving performance came from Lumma Design's enhancement of the car's aerodynamics with unique CLR components.
The three part spoiler lip added to the rear of the 2012 Porsche Carrera 991 CLR 9 S by Lumma Design is the key to increasing the down force on the rear axle of the car. Just this one change boosts the handling significantly at higher speeds, giving the car's overall performance an extra edge.
Another added touch, among others, on the exterior of the 2012 Porsche Carrera 991 CLR 9 S by Lumma Design is new ultra-light alloyed rims on the wheels, available in the colors silver and black, that weigh no more than 25 pounds in their biggest size.
The interior of the 2012 Porsche Carrera 991 CLR 9 S by Lumma Design looks completely new and sportier, redone in leather and Alcantara material with the colors red and black. Alcantara has been primarily used for driver's seats of Formula One cars due to its flame retardant properties, and with a texture similar to suede, it adds a very stylish touch to the overall interior.
The steering wheel is made more enjoyable for the driver with its new ergonomic design and black Alcantara material covering for extra grip. The aluminum driving pedals are now equipped with rubber studs so that they are extra slip-resistant.
All in all, the 2012 Porsche Carrera 991 CLR 9 S by Lumma Design is a very tasteful rendition of a favorite Porsche.
