Contending that “retro has never been as strong as today,” German tuning specialist DMC has launched Emozione GT, its retro-styled aerodynamic body kit for the 992 generation of the Porsche 911.

The kit follows the company’s earlier SV-inspired wing for the Lamborghini Aventador and its Classic Countach wing for the Lamborghini Huracan.

The company says the Emozione GT parts for the Porsche will be available in carbon fiber or kevlar. They include a front spoiler, with two splitters, that fits beneath the OEM bumper to widen the styling and to enhance downforce.

Also offered are side skirts with a fin designed to give the car a wider and lower look without changing ride height. There also is a rear diffuser with fins to guide airflow exiting beneath the car.

Most prominent, of course, are the rear wings. One is a “duck wing” that sits atop the factory spoiler and is designed to give the car the look of Porsches from 1990s. 

The other is the DMC GT3 spoiler inspired by the 997 generation racing car. This “Wing Blade” traces to the Porsche RSR and provides downforce as well as dynamic appearance.

The final part of the Emozione GT conversion package is an ECU control chip that bumps horsepower by 60 and allows the engine to produce an extra 59 pound-feet of torque. A special muffler also is available with valves that can be opened for maximum flow and volume, or closed for quieter operation.
