German customizer TIP-Exclusive has created an artistic one-off design that started off as a white Porsche 997 Turbo.
The design was made more aggressive with a TechArt body kit consisting of a front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, and an adjustable rear wing. It was also give the more angular tail lights from a later 911. A KW coilover suspension allowed for a lower ride height.
Mechanically, the car benefits from a variable flap exhaust system with a dual oval tailpipes.
Of course, the real eyecatcher is the extensive foil work with matte red and satin black wrap with gold borders put together into a dynamic design. The theme extended to the wheels as well, with one of the five double spokes of the front wheels finished in red, and one of the five double spokes of the rear wheels finished in gold.

The Porsche 911 has been a highlight of the sports car landscape since its debut in 1964, and 2016 marks the 40th Anniversary of the iconic 911 Turbo, the world’s first turbocharged production sportscar.
Years of continuous development give the 911 a huge advantage over its competitors, and when the Porsche 997 Turbo came out, it was hailed as the best all-round sports car of its time. With outstanding performance and a 4WD chassis capable of delivering supercar performance all year round, the Cabriolet version is the icing on the cake when the sun is shining.
Devising an elaborate multi-coloured wrap design scheme, TIP-Exclusive’s owner Tim Lindenau and his team took a virginal white 997 Turbo Cabriolet and used it as the blank canvas to create a striking and unique, one-off automotive work of art.
TIP-Exclusive first fitted the Turbo Cabriolet with TechArt’s 20-inch diameter forged alloy wheels and a TechArt body styling kit. This consists of a front spoiler, side skirts, rear valance with underbody diffuser, and an electrically adjustable rear wing.
This 997 Turbo Cabriolet Gen 1 was also given the more angular rear lights from the face-lifted version, and its soundtrack enhanced with a variable flap sport exhaust system with double oval tailpipes. Finally, the ride height was lowered with KW coilover suspension.
Then, through the skilful use of foil, the team created a masterpiece from matt red and satin black surfaces with golden borders. Even the black wheels were given motifs colour coded to the bodywork, with one of the five double spokes of the front wheels foiled in red, while one spoke on each of its rear counterparts was foiled in gold.
A sporty interior with touches of luxury completes this artistic composition. Here, in addition to the factory Sport Chrono package and leather upholstery, TIP Exclusive installed illuminated carbon doorsill plates. The final touch is a set of bespoke floor mats featuring high quality fabric with leather piping. Leather is used on the rocker panels too.
