Porsche is rolling out a new range of Tequipment retrofit upgrades for existing 911 Carrera, Boxster, Cayman, Panamera and soon Cayenne owners that promise to spice up the look and feel of the car with everything from new appearance packages to a revival of the Fuchs 911 Sport Classic alloy wheels to the PDK 911 Turbo's steering wheel.
The PDK wheel from the 911 Turbo, which features wheel-mounted metal paddle shifters in place of the spoke-mounted button shifters found on other cars, is available for Boxster, Cayman, 911 Carrera and Panamera models equipped with PDK gearboxes now. The Cayenne with Tiptronic S will be eligible for the upgrade in August. Aside from looking a bit sportier, the paddles are also in the proper arrangement: shift up on the right, down on the left. No more push-pull nonsense.
Also on the docket today are a pair of appearance packages, including the Aerokit Cup, available for the 911 Carrera Coupe, which gives the car a look inspired by the race cars of the Porsche Mobile 1 Supercup. New front and rear clips offer improved aerodynamics and more aggressive styling. For drivers of the 997 Cabriolet and Targa, there's the Sport Design front apron, which also can be had on the Carrera coupe.
Finally, the revival of wheels that resemble the classic Fuchs 911 Sport Classic alloys is available in a very limited quality: just 250 units will be produced. Sized in 19x8.5-inch front and 19x11.5-inch rear with a gloss-lathed finish, Porsche logo center cap, and five-spoke design, the wheels are available for the Carrera, Targa and Turbo.
