2006 Rinspeed Indy based on Porsche 997 Carrera S

(from Rinspeed Press Release) Rinspeed introduces the new Indy - based on the Porsche 997 Carrera S - at the IAA Frankfurt 2005

Following the traditional colours of the American oval and F1 race track at Indianapolis and the respective racing series, the renown Swiss Porsche tuner Rinspeed has - in cooperation with the internationally active paint produces Lesonal - restyled and repainted the Porsche 997 in the extraordinary colour white metallic. A colour which is also well connected to the Porsche factory and which will set a new trend for the coming years.

In the spirit of this racing tradition, the newly designed complete front skirt/bumper, side skirts, rear wing and rear skirt/bumper with integrated diffuser give the Porsche 997 not only an unmistakeable visual difference, but optimize the aerodynamical down force as well.

The four way adjustable coil-over suspension with individual height and stiffness settings lower the Rinspeed Indy by 35mm (1.4"). Two piece five-spoke aluminium wheels of the dimension 8.5x19 inches in front and 11x19 inches on the rear axle with Continental SportContact 2 tires of the sizes 235/35 and 315/25 ensure an ideal grip in turns and while accelerating or braking. The high performance eight piston brake system with front rotors in the dimension of 380mm x 32mm (15.25" by 1.25") axle are a tight fit within the wheel openings. The rear axle is not neglected by being fitted with 355m x 32mm (14" by 1.25") rotors.

The interior was left purposely very spartanic by the Swiss tuners to follow the original RS philosophy. The factory comfort seats have been exchanged with bucket seats which are colour matched on their back to the the outside body. The rear seats are deleted as a part of the Indy package as well. In order to steer the Porsche 997 even more precisely, the ergonomically formed steering wheel and the shifting knob are covered with Alcantara.

Me too, look at the steering wheel. It's pure Alcantara suede for that sporty grip you'll need on the track. Rinspeed has done it again, awe-inspiring.

Alcantara is fake suede.

A lot of companies have done that. Example:

The wide body pros at Gemballa prove their might once again with the GTR 650 Avalanche. Iím not feeling the name, Avalanche has the pickup connotation to it; I wonder if Gemballa knew this (Chevy Avalanche)?

Sportec just outdid Gemballa and RUF...

Sportec SPR1:








Quote:
The sports carís heart is situated inside the rear end: A flat engine featuring more than 800hp. This power allows performance ratings high above the possibilities of comparable sports cars. Thus, the coupť sprints to 100km/h in 3.0 seconds, to 200km/h in 8.7 seconds and is capable of a top speed far above 380km/h.

Specially manufactured drive components and axles transfer the existing force surely to the road surface. The electrically adjustable high-performance chassis adapts itself to any requirements at the push of a button. Thereby, the driver benefits from a high degree of safety at high speeds and may enjoy convenient travelling during short or long trips. Beneath the ultra-light and classy forged rims of the classic Sportec design, a luxuriously dimensioned brake system is waiting for the customer. The negative acceleration corresponds to a stopping distance shorter than 36 metres after a speed of 100km/h.

Out of this world widebody Sportec design is breathtaking. Another wonderful creation based off the legendary 911.
