Engineers working with Swiss luxury auto tuners Mansory have completed work on a new upgrade package for the Porsche 997 Carrera Turbo.  Once installed, the kit will cause more than a few heads to turn, with some enjoying the new look, and purists disregarding the new look as somewhat sacreligious.

The car has a new front skirt, and carbon fiber lip and splitter.  Sidesills are not mentioned by the firm, but appear to be congruent with the modified design.  They lead back to a completely redone back end that combines a new exhaust and added air outlets.  A remodeled rear spoiler rests on the decklid, and is made from carbon fiber.

Mansory commissioned a handcrafted interior with upgrades to the stock materials used by Porsche.  Like the carbon fiber exterior, the leather interior can be customized.

Upgrades to the engine include a new exhaust manifold along with two silencers.  The car rides on one-piece 20-inch silver rims, measuring 8.5- and 12-inches.  These rims can also be used on the 987 Cayman and Boxster.

Pricing was not announced for the package.
