Prior Design’s Porsche 911 PD3

Prior Design - Porsche 911 PD3

When the press release for this new modified Porsche 911 came across the desk, it read “Prior Design Porsche 911.” I thought “What do they mean ‘prior design’? The last generation?” Turns out Prior Design is a German tuning company that churns out some pretty sexy cars, and the Porsche 911 PD3 is no different.

Based on the incredible Porsche 911 GT3, the Prior Design 911 PD3 features a complete body kit which was designed with aerodynamics in mind from the beginning. A new carbon-flex fiberglass composite was developed for use in this car, showing itself in the spoiler blade, inlets, rear diffuser, and rest of the added kit. Prior Design decided to keep the stock GT3 rear wing, stating that it was “judged to be sound” by the PD team.

Prior Design added a hand-made stainless steel exhaust system to the 911 PD3 and fully enclosed the end of the muffler for aerodynamic purposes. Along with lowering the suspension by 30 mm (a little over an inch,) lightweight forged wheels were developed specifically for this car in a variety of sizes and designs.

Overall, the car looks great, and that’s the purpose of a design company. The 911 PD3 kit certainly adds to the aggressiveness of the car, and would be worth the extra money to have something particularly special. The modifications to the car also add 70 hp, according to PD.

The kit in Duraflex costs 12,900 Euros ($18,100 USD) or in carbon fiber it’s 14,900 Euros ($21,000.)

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way

    Ever since the Porsche 911 has been released, it really blows off other car companies because the 911 has a unique physique body with an overwhelming power and speed that many consumers love. And this "Prior Design" makes the 911 more hotter than ever before.

    Taking a factory Porsche GT3 front bumper and adding a Gemballa side intake and adding a splitter does not make a New design bumper.

    And Taking a rear GT3 bumper, adding a Champian bottom diffuer and a Lambo center exhaust bezel with a side splitter doesn't make a new bumper design

    This "Kit" is just a modified knock off of a factory GT3 bumper kit and it's a Joke to call these guys designers
