Misha Designs has mostly specialized in Porsche spoilers in the past but we’re guessing given the fairly decent success they’ve had with their Mercedes-Benz SL project, the company decided to dabble in producing a full kit for the Porsche 997. Well, we’re finding the result a little less than stellar, but part of it might be attributed to the corny Photoshop work they did for their own press photos.

With a Gemballa-like tuning package, Misha’s GTM Aero Kit makes isn’t as sophisticated as some and makes the 997 Turbo look almost like a toy car.

In the rear, the bumper and diffuser combo has way too much going on with a mash up of vents, lines and angles. But at least it’s in carbon fiber. Our biggest design gripe is with the center of the rear bumper where Misha throws down a lot of straight and angled lines for the license plate area – on a vehicle known for its round shape.

We won’t deny that some may really like the aero kit – we’ve certainly seen a lot worse on various other cars. Perhaps we’re just turned off by the Photoshopped motion blur on the still photos.

PRESS RELEASE

MISHA DESIGNS 997 AERO KIT

We are a tuning and Aerodynamic  company.  Here is our new kit.  Please include our website www.MishaDesigns.com for customers to get more information about us and the kit.

GTM Front Bumper

This bumper is part of our Exclusive Aerodynamic Package for the 997 Turbo.  It is built to accentuate the factory lines of the Turbo and to allow it to achieve the look of the supercar that it really is.

The bumper is not only for looks.  It is fully functional and includes new air ducts to channel extra air  into the radiators to increase cooling of the powerful engine.  It also includes a air vent at the top near the hood to release high pressure air from the front bumper to reduce drag and to increase down force.  The lower lip is made of  full carbon fiber and is designed to redirect air from going underneath the car to reduce drag and lift.  This 3 piece lip is also very convenient in case of an accidental damage.  The parts are very easily replaced, leaving the rest of your bumper in tact.

Currently available for both the Turbo, and Non Turbo 911 models.  Contact us for details.

GTM Rear Bumper

This Rear Bumper is part of our Exclusive Aerodynamic Package for the 997 Turbo.  It is built to accentuate the factory lines of the Turbo and to allow it to achieve the look of the supercar that it really is.

This is a full rear bumper replacement.  It not only transforms the look of the car, but is also made to help it perform better.  The rear is accentuated with all new intercooler exits.  It comes with 3 carbon fiber gills on each side that act as a venturi, helping to suck air through the intercoolers and out the back.  It comes with all new ducting from the intercoolers to the new larger exit.  It also includes full carbon fiber rear diffuser.  Built to be lightweight, is serves to channel the airflow from underneath the car in a controlled manner to increase rear down force.

Currently available for both the Turbo, C4 and C4S.  Contact us for details.

GTM Hood

This Hood is part of our Exclusive Aerodynamic Package for the 997 Turbo.  It is built to accentuate the factory lines of the Turbo and to allow it to achieve the look of the supercar that it really is.

This is a very unique design found on many supercars.  It has two grooves on either side to help channel the air over the hood uniformly.  It also comes with 2 optional carbon fiber vanes that give the  hood a more aggressive look.  The hood can be made in either FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) or Full carbon fiber for weight savings.  Removing weight from your hood lowers the center of gravity and improves acceleration.

Our hood has the same overall dimensions of the factory hood which means it can be purchased with or without our full kit.

Currently available for both the Turbo, and Non Turbo 911 models.  Contact us for details.

GTM Side skirts.

These Side Skirts are part of our Exclusive Aerodynamic Package for the 997 Turbo.  It is built to accentuate the factory lines of the Turbo and to allow it to achieve the look of the supercar that it really is.

The side skirts also serve an Aerodynamic purpose. They are designed to channel air flowing along the side of the car, to go around the wheel instead of flowing directly into it.  They also increase the apparent width of the car and are available with or without an added carbon fiber extension.  This Carbon fiber piece adds to the sporty and aggressive look of the package.

Currently available for both the Turbo, C4 and C4S.  Contact us for details.

GTM Add On Blade

The Misha Design Aerodynamic package for the 997TT is a Spoiler blade that replaces the existing top blade of the factory spoiler.  It installs exactly like the OEM blade and allows you to retain your factory lower and raise function.  The spoiler is a perfect fitment and comes primed and ready for paint.  All Misha 911 spoilers are built to the highest quality and standards and undergo stringent quality control before being sent to you.

This spoiler is the GTM Add On Blade. This design is similar to the 997 GT2 Factory Blade and is available in FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) as well as full and visible finished carbon fiber.

This spoiler fits all 997 and 997.2 911 Turbo including the convertible.

Currently available for both the Turbo, C4 and C4S.  Contact us for details.
