New generation looks for the previous 911 body
Porsche 996 in a Hamann 997 make-over

Hamann: Previous generation Porsche 911 (996) with the new (997) looks.

Previous generation Porsche 911 (996) with the new (997) looks: new front spoiler bumper, two fenders with a racing fuel tank cap and original Porsche parts kit including complete lighting units and headlamps.

APN,
27th May 2006.

When the previous 996 generation of the Porsche 911 made its public debut in 1997, a murmur went through the 911 crowd.

Water cooling? What had happened to the compact dimensions? Not to mention the weight... Most fans came to terms with this, as the 996 went on to prove that it was in fact the best Porsche 911 to date.

Yet, in terms of the front design, even Porsche itself recently admitted to having made a grave mistake with the 996 “fried eggs” looking headlamps.

Subsequently, the new 997 brought back the classical Porsche round/oval shaped headlamps.

Engine tuning available: up to 620 bhp and a top speed of 350 km/h.

However, before 996 owners go get themselves a 997 simply because of these “fried eggs”, all they need first is a look at Hamann’s styling suite for Porsche. For the renowned German tuning specialist from Laupheim gives the 996 a make-over, lending it the looks of the latest Porsche 997!

Obviously, this is the cheaper alternative to buying the new 997 and consists of:

- An entirely new front spoiler bumper,
- Two fenders with a racing fuel tank cap,
- An original Porsche parts kit including complete lighting units and headlamps (for vehicles with or without “Litronic”).

At first sight, it is not possible to tell the 996 apart from the 997.

The conversion kit is available from Hamann for the 996 series models Carrera, GT3, Carrera 4S as well as the Turbo and GT2.

Options include wing doors, wheels, exhaust and suspension systems...

Besides the visual update, Hamann has further measures in store for all the variants of the 911 series. These include, for instance:

- Wing doors that have been specially developed for the 911, with discreetly integrated technology and superior quality.
- A large number of body-styling elements,
- Wheel rims,
- Exhaust systems,
- Suspension components.

Engine tuning goes without saying at Hamann. Up to 620 bhp/780 Nm and a top speed of 350 km/h are possible (basis: Turbo and GT2).

In fact, the same goes for all Hamann tuned vehicles - namely that “nothing’s impossible”. Anyone can have “his” own personalized Porsche custom built. This applies in particular to the interior, since Hamann fits everything from carbon fiber inlays to leather upholsteries through to multimedia systems.
