New Porsche Exclusive Aero Kit for 911 Turbo

Downforce improved with wind tunnel and track-tested upgrades from in-house tuners.

Porsche Exclusive, the German automaker’s in-house personalization arm, is now offering a new "Aerokit" for the Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S. More than just a styling upgrade, the Areokit has also been wind tunnel- and track-tested to improve aerodynamics as well as downforce.

The Aerokit includes a new front lip spoiler, side rocker panels, and a revamped rear decklid featuring a fixed trailing edge with side winglets and an adjustable rear wing. Aerodynamic tuning was done in the wind tunnel as well as on the track at the Porsche Development Center in Weissach. The new kit is said to improve downforce without the expense of the stock 911 Turbo models’ coefficient of drag (cd). Downforce is said to increase at the front and rear axles with the Aerokit. Total downforce at 186 mph is increased from 19.8 pounds to 57.3 pounds in the Speed setting and from 291 pounds to 330.7 pounds of downforce in the Performance setting.

The new Aerokit is available for new and existing Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S models and can be ordered pre-painted or in gloss black. Aerokits ordered in gloss black feature black air intake fins on the rear lid to match the new wing. In Germany, the kit can be included on a new 911 Turbo for 5355 euros (roughly $6150) through Porsche Exclusive. Retrofitting by Porsche's Tequipment accessories division is also available, priced at 4879 euros ($5600) not including paint or assembly. The kit doesn't affect the factory warranty.
