“The KING of Carbon …. With a dear friend of mine who is President/Owner of MAcarbon, Mr. John Borchelt during his visit to Kuwait several years ago. The best source for customized high-quality Carbon Fiber accessories. Most of my Carbon Fiber parts, for all of my Porsches has been sourced by MAcarbon. Quality and artistic work beyond mere words”

The SEMA show this year was bigger than ever. An event that we always look forward to, this week long gear-heads dream was a real success. MAcarbon shared our booth this year with T&B Carbon Manufacturing, our European sister company. T&B came all the way from Belgium to debut a new product line, ‘Pearl White Carbon’. This product has a white carbon weave with a subtle pearlescent coating.

Whats your favorite? McLaren or Lamborghini?
We like ‘em both. Pick your favorite color.
Our friends from Wheel Boutique had the beautiful white McLaren MP4-12C parked at the HRE booth. They have great taste as it sports a MAcarbon steering wheel.
While there are always Mustangs and Camaros at SEMA, this year the hot car was the Scion FRS. From mild to wild, this is the car to ‘tune’ this year! But…. don;t hold your breadth for the MAcarbon FRS product line. The cars are always great, but, we also welcome old friends and new ones alike.

Missing from the photo is Andre Pouliot and Caroline Tonet. Andre is our Director of Molded Production and Caroline is the Director of our European Operations. Despite their ‘slogging’ it at the booth for many hours, we were so busy all week we only remebered to take a picture when they were both off duty.
We look forward working with the many new clients that we met at SEMA this coming year.
Techart Porsche 991 at Sharkwerks gets some MAcarbon goodies
The 991 is Porsche’s latest version of the iconic 911. Take a look at the 991, you will find Porsche’s basic principle in design and development refined once again. With this Porsche they have taken the interior up to a new level. While Porsche focuses on the driver’s experience like no other, this time they also focus on the driver’s environment.
We recently did our first local 991 interior installation and we would like to share the pictures with you. What you see here is a 2013 991 Carrera ‘S’ with a Techart conversion, the first one in the United States. This customer really likes to be first as back in 2005 he was our first 997 customer. Northern California’s premier Porsche shop, Sharkwerks performed the body and suspension modifications. Techart provided the new nose, body kit and type II rear wing. Giving the car it’s aggressive stance is a set of Techart’s forged type III wheels wrapped in Pirelli Pzeros. A really striking combination!
Once behind the wheel, after slipping past our custom door sills, you will notice a full-compliment of our carbon fiber accessories. Two of the most prominent pieces are the chronometer ‘mushroom’ and the dashboard strip. Sandwiched between the shift knob and the console you will see the PDK shift surround. All three pieces are adorned with a weave pattern that matches any existing oem carbon fiber.
If you can catch this car standing still, have a look inside!
Lane’s daily commute home is a 60 mile drive from the MAcarbon headquarters in Belmont, CA to the beach town of Santa Cruz, CA. This beautiful drive consists of about 40 miles on the scenic HWY 1 where Automotive journalists can often be seen testing everything from the new Viper to the new Jaguar F-Type.
The other day, as he pulled into Santa Cruz he spotted this Porsche 918 Spyder being pushed onto a U-Haul trailer and then they quickly covered the car and took off following a Porsche Cayenne.
Enjoy the Pic!
I was able to drive down to Laguna Seca early yesterday morning in our Porsche 996 targa for Rennsport Reunion. There were amazing cars everywhere! My favorite part of going to these events is looking at all the cars in the parking lots and being amongst all the other sports car lovers. I was as excited to see a beat up 924 turbo with a pasha interior as I was to see a 917 with 1100 HP.
Enjoy the pics!
We just installed these OZ Alleggerita HLT wheels on our Porsche 996 targa shop car (Thanks to Tire Rack for the fast delivery). We are really happy with the look and the weight savings over the stock BBS Sport Design wheels.
The stock wheels weighed about 25 lbs for the front wheels and 29lbs for the rear. The OZ are about 18 lbs for the front wheels and 19.5 for the rears.
Now we just have to lower the car a little to finish off the look!

MAcarbon will be sponsoring the upcoming Exotics Expose-Supercar & Exotics Car Show on September 12th at Old Westbury Gardens in Wesbury, New York.
We will have a both set up and several cars in show will have MAcarbon parts. Detailing Dynamics is putting on this show with Exotics Rally and Detailing Dynamics will have a Ferrari 360 and Porsche 997 GT3 with complete MAcarbon interiors featured.
We look forward to seeing all of our present and future customers and enjoying what is guaranteed to be an incredible show.
Our steering wheels have been very popular with MAcarbon’s customers. Each wheel is made to the customer’s specification with a myriad of options for them to pick from. Photos of previous wheels helped customers get some ideas but most had to simply imagine what the wheel would look like. This flexibility has also lead to a lot of confusion on how much a wheel would actually cost. So after almost six months of development, MAcarbon has launched our online wheel configurator. Now a customer can play around with all of the options available for a wheel, see right in the window what the wheel willlook like and have the system automatically calculate the price. The customer can then email the configuration to themselves when done.
We have launched the application with two of our most popular wheels. The first wheel is the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale. THe 360CS interior is almost all carbon already and a CF wheel makes a big impact. The second whell is the Porsche 997 Gen 1 Sport wheel which Porsche does not offer in carbon. We will be adding more wheels over the coming days.
Even with the configurator, properly spec’ing out a wheel involves a lot of decisions. The customer can chat directly with MAcarbon as they use the tool as well as call us.
