Porsche Gemballa Metal Slant Nose Kit Found in Monterey

Porsche Gemballa Metal Slant Nose Kit
Spotted in Monterey  is a Porsche Gemballa Metal Slant Nose Kit for $2,500 USD.   This kit is for an older Porsche 911 quite possibly a 964.  The front bumper in the photo looks to be a very close to a 964 bumper.    It comes with metal slant nose fenders and metal rocker panels.   The front bumper , rear bumper and tail section are fiberglass.   I have never seen a kit like this for sale but it is missing the most important piece which attaches around the rear window in front of the tail section.   They look to be a major design focal point and designed for maximum air flow.  This piece is missing and it will be extremely difficult to source that for a complete Gemballa look.   Also the side mirror is missing which really completes the look.   I imagine this could easily be replicated but the rear window section is more complicated of a design.  If your goal is to creat a 1980’s icon than this is great starting point.    What a decade of excess and flamboyance! What do you think of owning a Gemballa Porsche ?  Post your comments!
