Rinspeed Indy: Swiss Performance Meets the Brickyard

Following the traditional colors of the American oval and F1 race track at Indianapolis and the respective racing series, the renown Swiss Porsche tuner Rinspeed has restyled and repainted the Porsche 997 in the extraordinary color white metallic. A color which is also well connected to the Porsche factory and which will set a new trend for the coming years.

In the spirit of this racing tradition, the newly designed complete front skirt/bumper, side skirts, rear wing and rear skirt/bumper with integrated diffuser give the Porsche 997 not only an unmistakable visual difference, but optimize the aerodynamical down force as well.

The four way adjustable coil-over suspension with individual height and stiffness settings lower the Rinspeed Indy by 1.4 inches. Two piece five-spoke aluminum wheels of the dimension 8.5x19 inches in front and 11x19 inches on the rear axle with Continental SportContact 2 tires of the sizes 235/35 and 315/25 ensure an ideal grip in turns and while accelerating or braking. The high performance eight piston brake system with front rotors in the dimension of 380mm x 32mm (15.25" by 1.25") axle are a tight fit within the wheel openings. The rear axle is not neglected by being fitted with 355m x 32mm (14" by 1.25") rotors.

The interior was left purposely very spartanic by the Swiss tuners to follow the original RS philosophy. The factory comfort seats have been exchanged with bucket seats which are color matched on their back to the the outside body. The rear seats are deleted as a part of the Indy package as well. In order to steer the Porsche 997 even more precisely, the ergonomically formed steering wheel and the shifting knob are covered with Alcantara.
