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!
With the MP4-12C, McLaren has created a worthy follow-up to the legendary supercar, the F1. The carbon fiber monocoque chassis weighs only 176 pounds. Called a MonoCell, this one-piece pressing has been developed directly from Formula One technology.
MAcarbon is actively working on a variety of carbon fiber parts for the 12C. Despite a simple competition-bred interior, the car has many components that can be enhanced by carbon fiber.
Let’s start with the steering wheel. Some say the factory offering is a little too plain. Make it the focal point of your interior by adding carbon fiber. If you want a thicker wheel, just ask. You can choose smooth leather, suede or a combination of both. A special touch is our fine stitch work that is offered in a variety of colors.
Behind the wheel you will find the shift paddles, or ‘Nicoles’ as McLaren calls them. We offer carbon fiber shift paddle extensions much like the ones that many of our R8 customers rave about. These allow a larger range of hand placement while driving. The installation is simple and only takes a few minutes.
At SEMA 2011, MAcarbon took home two Global Media Awards for our “Mercedes Custom Steering Wheel And Shift Paddle Extensions” (see pic below). The Global Media Awards panel consists of a prestigious group of international journalists serving as judges, with 26 judges from 12 key automotive markets. Each judge carefully reviewed and evaluated items in the New Products Showcase before making their selections. GT Entertainment (France) and Autonews (Germany) magazines recognized our steering wheels as a product they felt would “resonate and appeal most to consumers”. We feel the same, and hope you’ll enjoy and make use of our new version of the wheel configurator to customize your own car!

MAcarbon’s Wheel Configurator enables you to create the perfect custom steering wheel for your exotic or luxury car. Our latest version of the Configurator is now live! We’ve taken our old configuration and streamlined it, adding some new features based on feedback we’ve received from customers.
- A “Start Order Process” button has been added. This makes it easier for the customer to initiate the order. Before, the customer was left wondering what to do once they had finalized their design. Now, the order process can be initialized right from the Configurator.
- We’ve added the ability to display photos of each wheel option. This gives you the ability to preview live photos of many stitching, ring, and material patterns. The rightmost column has icons that activate if there are available pictures.
- We’ve consolidated all our help options into one location at the top right of the screen. This section includes separate buttons for Chat, General Help, and the Wheel Program FAQ.
- The FAQ answers common questions (duh!) about the wheel program directly form the Configurator. These include things such as
- Will a Ferrari 360 wheel fit my 355?
- Will a later model Lamborghini Gallardo wheel fit my earlier model Lamborghini?
- What is a hub?
- Thread and ring galleries showing examples of many options have been linked into the Configurator. This pouts all the versions in one place for easy viewing.

MAcarbon had a booth at The SEMA Show http://www.semashow.com/ in Las Vegas Nevada for the third year in a row and it was the best show yet. All of the halls were full with products for any car or truck lover to gush over. Our booth was in a great location near the Mazdaspeed booth and we had a ton of traffic throughout the entire week.
Lane drove the shop car “Porsche 996 Targa” and John drove to trusty Mazda minivan the 9 hours to Vegas where we met up with our partners from Belgium (Georges and Caroline) and Canada (Andre). We had a great time visiting with several of our current customers and met many more potentially great customers…It was the best show yet!
We entered our “Mercedes W211 Steering Wheel with extended Carbon Shift Paddles” in the new products section and we came away with two awards for having one of the best new products at SEMA.
Lane was able to sneak away from the booth for a couple hours each day and take these pictures showing the variety that SEMA has to offer to everyone’s taste.
Here are some pictures of the cars with MAcarbon parts at SEMA…See all of our pictures on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/LaneSkelton
One of our favorite customers asked us to make a carbon interior for her Q7. She wanted to replace all of the silver trim in her car with carbon in order to match the way she said her Q7 “hauled ass”. We put together a seven piece kit for her and we think the results speak for themselves. She was certainly happy. And we were so hapy with it that, we will soon have the Q7 as a normal product offering. There are a few different versions of the Q7 interior so pricing will vary depending on what the customer has. Contact MAcarbon if you are interested in pre-ordering.

MAcarbon Mercedes G55 Steering Wheel
The G55 is Mercedes’ serious off-road vehicle. It is also one of their most luxurious. As such, they did not offer a carbon interior for the car. MAcarbon was asked by Progressive Autosports of Houston Texas (www.progressiveautosports.com
) to help one of their customers who wanted a carbon interior in their new 2010 G55. Due to the high cost of parts from Mercedes, the customer’s parts were sent to us. Within the quick 3 week turnaround time, all wood pieces were changed over to carbon. This includes the steering wheel, center console, upper console and radio surround, shift knob, passenger grab handle and seat switch surrounds. If you have a Mercedes G55 and would like a quote on your interior, please contact MAcarbon for a quote.

We installed our first set of Ferrari 430/360 carbon fiber door handles on this amazing 430. The customer is local and brought his car in for the installation. The car also has MAcarbon mirrors and engine bay vents. The handles made a nice compliment to the carbon mirrors.Imagine them on a 430 Scuderia or a 360 CS!
Installation of the handles takes about twenty minutes and can be done by the customer at home.
