Overall handling is exceptional. The springs have been reduced to 30 mm shorter than previous model's. The spring's are set up in sync with the patented Porsche electronic dampening control system. The brakes by "Brembo" affords you the capability of setting later brake point's. The lightweight 21 inch wheels contributes to the solid handling and ride, it weighs less than the standard 20 inch rims.
Exterior & Interior
As if this topless beauty were not attractive enough, the 2013 model takes it a step further. As this vehicle approaches, the first thing you are likely to notice is the newly designed and innovative front bumper / spoiler front end. Three sizeable air intakes surrounded by large protruding spoiler's to create downforce confirms this as a speed car.
Deep side skirt's join the front spoiler's to enhance its sleek appearance from front to back. The rear is just as impressive as the front. Once again re-engineered for 2013, the robust horizontal line's of the recessed back plane emphasizes it's impressive width. The rear is of course vented.
It should be noted that the "Gemballa" performance package carries an additional cost of $26,070 that includes installation and paint.
The stainless steel dual exhaust with triple pipes is separated by a diffuser. The interior is what you would expect from Porsche, both impressive and functional. The center console is replete with all the necessary control's and then some. The display is large and conveniently visible.
