The newly resurrected Gemballa brand may not be making as many splashes as we would like to see, but they’ve recently returned to their roots with a new Mirage GT edition. Similar to the Matt Black Edition that was seen in 2009, Gemballa has created another version of its modified Porsche Carrera GT, this time in matte blue.
Based off a Porsche 980 Carrera GT, the exotic sports car features 650-hp and 464 lb-ft of torque. And while Gemballa’s designs are often criticized for being too extreme, the Mirage GT aero kit couldn’t be a better fit, helping keep the exotic Porsche looking modern.
The engine bay and interior also gets their fair share of colored accessories, with a white theme contrasting the flat blue exterior.
Take a look at all the pics in the gallery below. Nostalgia never looked so good.

Woah, hold that matte black wrap and throw away those buckets of matte white paint. Platinum Motorsport has just revealed its latest project car, a Porsche Panamera sporting matte blue paint. Platinum took Porsche’s luxury sedan and made it sportier, more exotic and unique than any of us could have envisioned when the car first hit the market.
Like many of their high profile builds, Platinum Motorsport carefully stripped the Panamera to its bare bones chassis, including all the glass, before applying layers of matte blue paint. And once that was done, they didn’t stop there. While much of the interior was reupholstered, of particular note is the blue Alcantara headliner.
With subtle accents, a nice set of wheels and proper lowering job, Platinum Motorsport took this Panamera Turbo to all new heights. There isn’t even a reason to drop a Smurf-related joke. This is just in a league of its own.
