A wild car tuning package here from the guys at OK-Chiptuning for the 996 generation Porsche 911 Turbo. This exterior paint scheme was inspired by the 1991 German action comedy Manta, Manta where the protagonist of the movie drove an Opel Manta coupe. The colors you see here were placed over the original paint by using a foil wrap, while the tuners also installed TechArt pink rims with Opel logos. This makes us wonder why even both with the logos when it’s obviously a Porsche 911 Turbo.
Here is a perfect example of what a de-chroming can do to make your car extra unique while still keeping the stock parts in check. The owner of this Tesla Model S gave his sports car to the tuners at Al & Ed’s Autosound where they covered all the chrome exterior parts in a 3M satin black film. The lower body trim parts were also painted the same color as the body, as well as the nose cone. As you can see, the only chrome pieces left on the Tesla Model S are the license plate frames for marketing use, which we’re sure have been removed by owner.
