Gemballa rises again with the Porsche Cayenne Gemballa Tornado

Uwe Gemballa may be dead but the company that bears his name lives on. This Gemballa tuned Porsche Cayenne Turbo is proof of it. Aptly named the Porsche Cayenne Gemballa Tornado it showcases the newly formed Gemballa GmBH, a company built on the ashes of the debt ridden original company helmed by the late Uwe Gemballa.

The Tornado is based on the latest type 958 Porsche Cayenne and it the company's latest model. It showcases what this new, old company can do to a Porsche. Now under the hands of a previous employee or two, you can see that nothing has basically changed. Gemballa is still Gemballa.

Everything is still as outrageous as we come to expect from them. A distinctive bodykit with the now common lightweight carbon fiber bits, huge 22inch wheels, larger diameter discs to fit and look properly under those gargantuan wheels, quad tailpipes, two tone paintjob and 700bhp - to create your own little tornado if you pass by smaller cars as you speed by courtesy of the tweaked ECU and boost settings as well as that sports exhaust system. It is as mad as the previous Gemballa Cayenne made; the Avalanche series. I suppose the interior would be as customized too. The last Gemballa (a 911 Turbo) I happened to look into had a cream and red leather interior. Not for the fainthearted.

Gemballa will twist out a limited 30 units of the 700hp Tornado for 2011. This is in reference to Gemballa's 30 year anniversary this year. Gemballa is dead, long live Gemballa.
