This Porsche 992 Stinger GTR Limited Carbon Edition is as sweet as chocolate


Russian luxury car tuner Top Car Design has unveiled its latest 992-series Porsche 911 sports car. Yes, it’s a brown car. But take a closer look, and you will find the Stinger GTR Carbon Limited Edition does not look like any 911 from the factory.

This copy wears a full chocolate brown body kit in exposed carbon fiber. According to Top Car Design, the Stinger GTR Limited Carbon Edition body kit consists of 84 details made up of four layers of carbon fiber. We never thought we would say this, but we won’t mind driving in a brown car if it looks as exotic and sultry as this one.

The kit includes a new hood with a fancy spoiler, fender vents galore, ribbed sections on the side sills and an aggressive rear spoiler. Meanwhile, the engine’s rear cover receives custom louvers to give it an old-fashioned vibe. Of course, it also has a unique rear diffuser with trapezoidal cutouts for a completely new exhaust system.

However, there is a visual surprise lurking under the front hood. Raising the hood reveals a bespoke interior panel with a brown carbon pattern that mimics burl walnut wood or desert camouflage. The brown theme continues into the cabin with exposed carbon fiber and chocolate-colored accents on the seats and dashboard.

As expected, all of these intricate details come at a cost. Top Car Design currently lists its Porsche 992 Stinger GTR Limited Cardon Edition body kit at € 100,000 or around $ 113,000. Fancy an Akrapovic titanium exhaust with black tips? That’s still € 6,500 ($ 7,400). How about those wonderful forged wheels? That’s $ 9,000 more. If you don’t like brown, Top Car will apply a coat of color for an additional € 25,000 ($ 28,000).

The list of options goes on and on, as does the price. And yes, prices don’t include a new Porsche 911, which starts at $ 101,000 for a base 911 Carrera to $ 174,000 for a 911 Turbo. But then again, Top Car Design only makes 13 of its Stinger GTR body kit, so you usually pay for the exclusivity of having the smoothest 911 around.
