CLR 9 S: Meet Lumma Design's Latest Custom Porsche 911

The think the new 991-series Porsche 911 looks pretty darn good as it is, but leave it Lumma Design to think it can go one step better. The German tuning house released photos of its modified 2012 Porsche 911 -- which it calls the CLR 9 S -- before it's officially unveiled next week at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

Lumma starts with a brand-spankin'-new 911 Carrera S, and then slathers it with unique exterior accents, including a new front fascia,  athree-piece rear spoiler, and custom wheels. Although many of Lumma’s past creations featured outrageous body kits and massively-flared fenders, purists will be happy to see the stock Porsche 911 sheetmetal is left mostly intact. You may also be happy to know the wild racing stripe shown here is apparently an optional extra, and that many components of the CLR 9 S package are available a la carte, allowing customers to customize their cars to taste.

The CLR 9 S kit also includes a custom “pipe-in-pipe," quad-tipped sports exhaust, which features valve control to produce a sportier exhaust tone. It's apparently not the only functional bit added to the car: Lumma claims the three-piece rear spoiler and other aerodynamic components add downforce for greater high-speed stability.

The wheels are offered in several styles, though each measure 20 x 9 inches in the front, and 20 x 12 inches in the rear. Ranging from forged, ulrtra-lightweight designs, to racing-inspired multi-piece styles, Lumma’s available wheels for the CLR 9 S are all show-stoppers in their own right, and come wrapped in 245/30R20-size high-performance tires in the front, and 305/30R20s in the rear.

Seeing as a premium tuner car just isn't a premium tuner car without a customized interior, the CLR 9 S receives aluminum pedals, white instrument panel trim, and Alcantara and leather as far as the eye can see. Leather is used on virtually every surface, including the dashboard, headliner, door panels, and the center console.

We appreciate that Lumma didn’t go too wild with the 991’s exterior. But when it comes to the classic shape of the Porsche 911, we still think it’s best not to mess with success. What do you think of Lumma’s latest creation? Give us your take in the comments section below.

Very pretty. However, I think the tuner could have gone a step further. Considering the classic White with red stripes paint scheme; they should have added a ducktail spoiler to the bodywork. The retro feel would have been awesome. (Yes, I'm a big fan of the older air-cooled 911s. :))
