It’s not out of the ordinary for aftermarket tuners to take on Porsche’s most sought-after platforms — after all, the Stuttgart-born company has built its entire catalog around race-ready performance, helping to bridge the gap between intimidating horsepower and everyday driving. Gemballa, one of the country’s premier Porsche tuning shops, has solicited the manufacturer’s legendary Carrera GT for yet another mindblowing build — this time, taking more than 1,000 man-hours to complete.

The “Mirage GT” represented here is a mysterious beast — not much is known surrounding its story or details. But the German tuner wasn’t shy about revealing the performance figures for the one-off wonder, which boasts an astounding 661 horsepower (58 horsepower more than standard), and 465 lb-ft of torque, enhanced from an already impressive 435 lb-ft. The vehicle’s naturally-aspirated 5.7-liter engine provides a pronounced note that’s specific to the analog supercar, alongside a newly introduced catalytic converter setup, stainless steel exhaust system, and custom air intake. An ECU remap helps to even out the Carrera’s performance, accelerating the vehicle from 0-62 in just 3.7 seconds, while on the supercar’s top end, the 205-MPH top speed provides all of the exhilarating adrenaline you could ever want from Germany’s prized platform. On the interior, the GT is dressed from head to toe in carbon fiber, intricate yellow stitching, and Alcantara leather — reveling in its luxurious pedigree.
