Decision follows disappearance of company founder and investigations by tax officials
19 May 2010

Famed Porsche tuning firm Gemballa has reportedly shutdown.

The move follows the disappearance of company head and founder Uwe Gemballa.

It was initially reported he went missing while on holiday in South Africa, although police there have found no clues as to his whereabouts. The firms offices were subsequently raided by tax officials, and reports circulated that staff had not been paid.

The Gemballa tuning house is best known for tuning some of the most extreme Porsches available, including the 740bhp Porsche Panamera pictured.
