German automotive tuner Gemballa has provided the first look at its Avalanche 4×4, an all-new off-roading variant of the Porsche 911.

Gemballa’s sketches show the Avalanche 4×4 as a high-riding, bulky 911, altering every single panel on the car in order to optimize its terrain-tackling abilities. The front bumper is shorter to give the car better clearance, while its rear features a redesigned diffuser, a much larger wing, and plenty of protection in the form of an underbelly skid plate.

The 911’s rework also includes a redesigned front hood complete with a carbon fiber finish sporting lots of deep air ducts, as well as new vents in the doors and a set of dual roof scoops. Gemballa’s Avalanche 4×4 features chunky all-terrain tires, lots of detachable components seen by the hinges on the front and rear bumpers, as well as rally-inspired aesthetic thanks to its antennas, side-window vents and additional rear foglight.

Now power figures for the concept have been unveiled, however, Gemballa does state that it is looking to prepare power outputs of over 1,000 BHP in the near future. Steffen Korbach, owner and CEO of Gemballa said in a press release that the Avalanche 4×4’s “performance data will outshine all comparable vehicles,” and that we can expect to see an “exclusive small series based on the Porsche 991 and 992.” Production is reported to start by the end of 2020.

In other news, Zero Labs has developed a 600 BHP all-electric Ford Bronco.

Gemballa sharpens its corporate strategy and provides an outlook on future models… We will be introducing numerous new models over the next 24 months and expanding our dealer network worldwide,” states Steffen Korbach, owner and CEO of Gemballa. New Gemballa Avalanche 4×4 and Tornado 4×4 He continues: “First and foremost, we will continue to focus on customizing and increasing the performance of Porsche models, but we are also open to other brands. The prototype of the Gemballa Avalanche 4.2 RS based on the Porsche 991, which was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017, is now to be launched this year in an exclusive small series based on the Porsche 991 and 992. The performance data will outshine all comparable vehicles. In 2016, we already discussed the development of a 4×4 variant of the Porsche Cayenne as the Gemballa Tornado 4×4 and the Porsche 911 as the Gemballa Avalanche 4×4. Designs for both vehicles have been in the drawer for a long time.” Performance increase with over 1,000 HP in preparation The Luxury Customization Division is currently marketing very successfully the body kit conversion for the Porsche 991/992 under the name “GTR 8XX Evo-R BiTurbo” with an increase in performance to currently 818 bhp and 1,098 Nm and an acceleration of 2.3 seconds from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) and a top speed of over 370 km/h (230 mph). A performance variant with over 1,000 bhp is being worked on and will be launched in the summer. High investments in development and expansion of high quality standards “After years of consolidation, we are now preparing a major product offensive with new considerable investments,” says Steffen Korbach, adding: “A lot has changed in our sector. Stricter state guidelines and laws, new trends, and competition from vehicle manufacturers are having a massive impact on the vehicle customization business. We have worked long and hard and since 2010 have invested over 15 million Euro in modernizing the brand and improving product quality. All of this with the aim of standing out from the mainstream also in the future.” #gemballa
