The tempting trinkets that enhance Porsche ownership
...and all the latestmust-have stuff
Top-end aftermarket suspension gurus, Ohlins, is expanding its Porsche range, with a specific focus on developing and testing new kits at its test centre in Meuspath, Germany. The company is using experience gained from motorsport, where it has been lifting trophies in Indy Car, Le Mans 24hr, WTCC, GT classes, rally and numerous Nürburgring events. Ohlins also developed the suspension for Singer's range of retro inspired cars.
Ohlins’ Meuspath test centre is based right next to the Nürburgring, with its demanding twists, turns and surface challenges. Ohlins has teamed up with the renowned local Fricadel Racing squad to race a 991 GT3 in the VLN Endurance and Nürburgring 24hr race, with local ’Ring star, Sabine Schmitz, at the wheel. If you were at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed, you might have seen both Sabine and her machine on the Ohlins stand.
Ohlins already have a wide range of suspension kits for Porsches. We'll be trying a Road and Track 996 kit on one of our projects and we're hoping for a set-up that will really work with UK roads. Ohlins has just launched kits for 981/991 models in its Road and Track range. As the name suggests, they are designed for both. Simple adjusters allow a car to be easily 'dialled-in' for focused circuit use, before driving home in bump-absorbing comfort, thanks to Ohlins’ Dual Flow Valve and TTX (Twin Tube) technology.
