Howdie all

Hope everyone is well. On my last three 911's I've added Side skirts. Lowers the appearance and adds a touch of aggression.

I don't believe there are any OEM ones for a Gen 1 or 2 C2 or C2s.

Anyone know of any aftermarket ones that look good ? I've got a Maxton Design front splitter on that looks Epic but they don't do skirts unfortunately.

Any ideas Question

Cheers

Dan

There is a guy who fitted 991 side skirts onto his 997 with some tinkering. I think I saw it on the rennlist forum from memory

Cheers guys - by the answers or also lack of answers this is clearly NOT a popular Mod so I may stay away.

If anyone has some skirts actually on their 997 I'd love to see some.

Cheers

Dan, you have just the dilemma I had with my gen1 narrow body. I did hours or research finding that the wide body cars lower sill is a seperate piece and can be changed out for GT3RS ones etc but the NB cars the lower sill is a part of the whole sill so you cant do that.
So I was left will aftermarket options , personally I found the techart and some of the others a bit bulky and was not the more subtle look I was after also many were grp or fibreglass which I didnt want.
So I finally decided on side skirts made to replicate the GT2 ones but for narrow body cars and made in PU Thumb RESULT these I brought from xclusive customz in Sheffied after quite a long chat with the guy there who really know his stuff and exactily what I was talking about and was a great price.

https://xclusivecustomz.com/product/gt2-style-body-kit-for-porsche-997/

I took them to a body shop to have them fitted he ran adhesive along the leading edge to bond them they are fixed under the body as well but with fixings. He then ran a very fine line of black silicon between the lip of the sill and the bodywork to reduce the lip where its fixed and giving a more intergrated look as with the wide body cars . they come as a matt black so I had them painted in the soft satin black so they were not the same as the body colour but blended . you will need to remove the rear little plastic mud flap but my bodyshop guy played around and actually was able to refit the mud guard over the edge of the skirt , that was just my OCD it doesnt need to be refitted.

hope that helps , heres some pics of them and on my gen1 Thumb

the bottom 3 pics are me offering it up to the car prior to fitting ,the top 5 are them fitted and painted on my car Thumb

I should also say they dont need to be painted or could be body colour painted if you have painted the maxon front lip . I only had them painted in satin to match the slight satin finish of the OE aero lip on my car which the bodyshop used to get a colour match made up as rainbow paints are only round the corner and they have a machine that car read and match colours.

I also have to say it was a hell of a lot easier to fit the OE GT3RS skirts to my gen2 4S as the lower lip just unbolts and the RS lip then just bolts in its place Grin but effectively gives the same lower more aggressive stance Thumb

see a couple of pice of the gen2 4S for comparison

Hey Phil,

These look exactly what I was looking for !!!! They look sweet on your car. Subtle but just a touch more aggressive.
I see the whole body kit is £1995 - how much did they charge for the side skirts only ?

Also perfect that they don't need to be painted. The Maxton splitter didn't need painting and the local bodyshop put her on for £80 in within 1 hour.

Thanks very much buddy

Dan

Sweet! They look great cheers Phil. £280 is a good price.

Question - do they bottom out on speed bumps etc? My front splitter catches on almost Every down ramp in Every multi story car park and makes a horrible scraping sound. It doesn't seem to damage it but I wince every time so wondering about the Skirts ?

Cheeers

No mate even on a lowered car the sides never scraped used to think they might over speed bumps but they dont just the front lip and the front mud flap thingys in front of the front tyres they cant be mud flaps but some type of air flow thing they scarepe more than enything else on the car lol

yes £280 is good better than the £650/700 my OE ones cost for the 4S Surprised

I’m surprised they’re different (although I bow to your superior knowledge worship) I assumed the were the same. Mine are Gen.1 GTS/GT2 skirts and fit like a treat. Didn’t think the Gen.2 would be any different. Got mine from Design911 Thumb

Careful with it at high speed - I had one on mine for a few months and ripped it in half whilst doing 150mph!

On track of course Cool

Its just what the OPC told me , I was suprised as well. so went for the newer one, now how different they are probably nothing just a newer part number to suit the gen2 . cant say I have ever seen a different one they all look the same Dont know I am assuming your gen1 ones look just the same as my gen2 ones in the pic above.
