Probably the world’s most traditional sports car is entering the next round. The new Porsche 911 (type 992) attracts with new superlatives regarding engine and driving performance. And just as fast as a Porsche rides, the development department of H&R went fast as well and already has a matching sport spring set available.
While retaining the Porsche PASM original shock absorbers, the vehicle’s centre of gravity comes closer to the ground. After the update, the forged wheels on both axles are about 30 millimetres lower in the wheel arches. It does not only look like it has to be this way, it can also be “experienced”. The lower centre of gravity and the H&R-typical spring characteristics pay off. They do so with a particularly “stable lateral position” and even more “bite” when turning in. And, of course, the sport springs have the necessary type approval for easy homologation.
The secret to such success? To put it simply, the technology H&R employs to develop cutting-edge suspension systems for competition use is the very same used to develop innovative suspension components for street-driven cars.
In addition, H&R maintains extensive involvement in several touring car, GT and Monoposto racing series. Not to mention the Formula 1- where each circuit may have its own demanding characteristics. In the harsh environs of competition, H&R is able to test new materials and innovate production technologies. All of which can help racing teams adapt to changing road conditions accurately and efficiently.
Every sport-oriented motorist can experience the result of these efforts! Suspension components “Made by H & R” enjoy appreciation from the international trade press and from customers all over the world.
Car manufacturers such as Porsche, AMG Mercedes, Volkswagen, MINI and BMW also rely on the know-how and flexibility of H & R for various special models. But not only sporty drivers, who had suspension components like Sport Springs for the Porsche 911 Type 992 installed to optimize their vehicles, appreciate the qualities of the H & R products.
Simply put, H&R is more than just a suspension manufacturer — it is a company whose core philosophies are innovation, quality and performance.
