Who's Body Kit Is This?

Curious about this one. I downloaded these photos at some point, but can't recall where I found this. Anyone know who makes this body kit? It looks similar to the Gemballa GT rear bumper (except with exhaust at the bottom) and side skirts. One UK website that sells just the side skirts refers to them as "EVO" side skirts...

Don't know but it looks like crap IMO.

^ I agree, it looks bloated, (and ricer).

And I have no idea who makes it.

That's suffering from a bad paint job or poor photography.

Here's the actual Gemballa kit. There's an extensive interview with Mr. Gemballa in the new issue of Excellence(Green 997 GT3 RS on the cover)

Yeah, I like the Gemballa GT kit, especially with the exhaust in the middle of the bumper. That's pretty unique for a Boxster, although 9ff makes something similar. It's pricey at $1,950 just for the side skirts, $1,750 on eBay through "911ava". I was disappointed this week to find out they were just fiberglass parts for the side skirts. For that money I would expect better. The Gemballa rear bumper and exhaust are like $5,500. The "EVO" side skirts in the photos I put up look very similar and are about $500 from a UK dealer. Not sure where you could get them in the US though.

I'm not sure I like the rear bumper much either... I've got mixed feelings on that one.

EVO actually has an entire body kit...front bumper, side skirts, and rear spoiler. They are inexspensive, I think $1500.00 for all. Poly front bumper, fiberglass sides, and spoiler.

Any idea where you can source that body kit? I've googled and searched and can't find anything. I think that EVO is out of Europe somewhere and I don't think it's the Evolution Motorsports we know here in the U.S.

Not a fan of those speedster humps over the folded down top. Looks tacked on and trying too hard for the Buck Rogers or Jetson's look.

This is where I saw the body kit. Acually the site doesnt show the entire kit, but it is a good price.
