2006 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:38 pm    Post subject: Shallower Front Lip for Aero/GT3 Needed Reply with quote

So I have managed to wreck the splitter/front lip already, only been on 6 months! So many speed bumps around here, misjudged one that was higher than it appeared and it has cracked in two right in the middle Mad

Need a new one but I am about to refresh the suspension including fitting either lower springs or going the whole hog with Ohlins R&T. A new splitter wouldn't last 5 mins if the suspension is lowered 15/20mm!! I think there is a splitter available that isn't as deep as the standard one but not sure which one that is or where to get one!

If anyone could point me in the right direction would appreciate it Thumb or if anyone knows of other options, I think the 991 splitter can be modified to fit the Gen2, possible to mod for the Gen1?? Do like the look of this type of splitter!

Hi Rob,

As I posted here http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=130671 ...I have installed the 991 splitter on the standard 997.2 bumper using an adaptor kit out of the US and so far have survived all speed bumps without too much drama. The splitter is around 4 cm" deep from memory. I have PASM on the standard 997.2S which is not as low as you are planning so not sure how the 991 splitter would work for you.

The guy in the US is apparently finalising an adaptor kit for the 997.1 and it may be worth contacting him. He's currently soliciting for interest here ... https://rennlist.com/forums/997-forum/1088022-991-sports-lip-spoiler-adapter-for-997-2-done.html

The adaptor kits aren't cheap (mostly 3 D printed) but the 991 splitter is so overall reasonable value.

Thanks Systech! Looks great on your car Thumb Will investigate if there is a similar option for the Gen1 GT3 splitter!
