Carbon Porn – New Pictures of Carbon Dry Japan’s Porsche 997

Carbon Dry Japan Porsche 911 997

Earlier I posted a sneak peek of our friends at Carbon Dry Japan’s dry carbon Porsche 997 parts. However that sneak peek didnt do the parts justice. These new pictures do!

I think Carbon Dry Japan has some of the best dry carbon production out of Japan. They’re quality in person is amazing and I recently also installed a set of their mirror covers on my GT-R which I’m loving!

New Aero Debut – Carbon Dry Japan Porsche 997

Posted by

Carbon Dry Japan Porsche 997

My friends at Carbon Dry Japan recently shared their new press release with us for their new Porsche 997 Aero parts.

Carbon Dry Japan is known for (you guessed it) their pre-preg dry carbon parts. This aero kit not only adds functional aerodynamics, it also reduces body weight by sometimes as much as 69% per panel when using the dry carbon version parts. Although Carbon Dry Japan’s prices are fairly expensive, I can say from first hand experience that their quality is top notch as we’ve had a few of their dry carbon hoods come through the office here for GT-Rs.

For anyone interested in these new Porsche parts please feel free to email me directly at ben@bulletproofautomotive.com

If Top Secret’s Nardo V12 Supra Had A Worthy Rival, It’d Be This

Posted by

I try to widen peoples perspectives with this blog from time to time. With all of the talk this past year about the Top Secret V12 Nardo Supra, I thought I’d share with you what I feel is Germany’s equivalent of Smoky Nagata’s creation. I’d love to see these two cars battle it out once Smoky finishes tuning his Supra to its final specification!

Much like how Top Secret took Japan’s super car, the JZA80 Supra and reworked it into a 400km/h monster (debatable), 9ff from Germany took one of Porsche’s super cars, a 997 GT3 and reworked it into a 400km/h monster as well!

9ff GT9 Porsche

Although I’ll share some larger and cleaner pictures below, I cant think of a better way to introduce the GT9 than that photo you see above. Have you see a more hardcore street legal car in your life?

So lets talk about a few of the specs. The GT9 costs $850,000 USD and 20 will be made in total. It has already run 252 MPH (406km/h). It weighs 1326kg (2917lbs). It has 986 horsepower out of a 6cyl boxer twin turbo engine. It is the worlds fastest street legal Porsche and out accelerates a Bugatti Veyron.

Now for a few more pics:

There is already some great content online, I’m just happy enough to introduce this car to many JDM fanatics who might have otherwise never bothered looking at what high end German tuning can offer in comparison. Thanks goes out to Bernd who emailed me and inspired me to write about this car which I’ve been a fan of for some time now.

Check out some of the youtube videos as well…crazy stuff!

When You Have Too Much Money

Posted by

997 GT3 - Too Much Money, Too Little Taste

When you have too much money defacing one of the most beautiful cars built isn’t a big deal. Perhaps this is for when the owner feels like “slumming it”? I’m in love with the 997 GT3, its no secret. So seeing this is about as disturbing as seeing a high class hooker after she’s been with Mike Tyson. (wait…did I just say that?)

Maybe its like the rich white kids from the suburbs getting tatooed up and rocking gold fronts to be a little more ghetto. Whatever it is, its distrurbing. And what’s worse is I actually dont mind camo’d cars. I liked Nigo’s BAPE Rolls Royce Phantom with the camo paint, and I like RE Amemiya’s old camo demo cars. But this camo job just looks like shit. Whatever, I’d take it if the owner handed me the keys…just gotta drive faster so nobody sees you..or at the least when they yell out about what a tool you are you’d already be miles away.
