Porsche 911 will make an “off-road supercar”

After Uwe Gemballa passed away, the well-known tuning company Gemballa changed ownership, but continued the business of the original company. Now the head of the company is Uwe’s son, Mark Philippe Gemballa. True, he has his own company, ready to demonstrate his own debut project in Geneva – a tribute to the iconic Porsche 959.

It is worth noting that the 26-year-old Philip Gemball managed to work at Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. In the spring of the year before last, Marc Philippe established his own company, MP Gemballa, which plans to organize the display of the first project at a private event at the Geneva Motor Show.

Gemballa’s novelty, apparently, is a reworked variation of the Porsche 911 992 series, made with an eye on the iconic 959th. This information was confirmed by Alan Deroziere, who is responsible for the design of the car. Mark Philippe Gemballa calls his own creation “off-road supercar”, believing that the time has come for truly exclusive cars.

 MP Gemballa’s partners include KW Automotive (suspension), Michelin & BF Goodrich (tires), Akrapovic (exhaust system), Staud Studios (marketing), DS Fasertechnik (carbon fiber parts) and VELA Performance (engineering). The project was fully sponsored and the company even received a couple of orders.

 The Porsche 959, to which the Gemballa supercar will send, was once considered the most dynamic production road car. A 450-horsepower car with a 2.8-liter twin-turbo six could accelerate to 339 km / h.
