Öhlins Road and Track coilovers are available for the 996 Carrera and GT3 models, as well as the 997 Carrera. Elsewhere in this issue we’ve fitted them to a BMW 335d and are very pleased with the performance. And now Porsche enthusiasts can realize the same comfortable ride with precise handling. Using dual-flow valve technology, the lightweight coilovers respond to road undulations. However, for track use the needle valves ensure consistent damping throughout the entire range of travel even when the oil gets hot. The Öhlins units are infinitely adjustable, with threaded bodies for height adjustment that’s separate from preload. Easy to access knurled knobs can tune compression and rebound in one twist, giving precise control to track day enthusiast. $2999 ohlinsusa.com
