They provide aftermarket parts mainly for Porsche.
A 600hp car held the lap record for road cars at the Nürburgring in the late 1990s once, and again in 2001 when Wolfgang Kaufmann lowered it to 7:32,52 min. It was since beaten by a Porsche Carrera GT, by less than a second.
Mirage GT - Based on Porsche's Carrera GT. Rumors suggested that when the car was produced it would have upwards of 800 hp; however, the Mirage GT's only performance modification is an exhaust system which boosts power to 645 hp. Company owner Uwe Gemballa says a twin-turbo version of the Porsche Supercar is in the works. Modified Luxury & Exotics magazine described the unveiling of the car as, "one of the most highly anticipated moments the aftermarket has been witness to." They concluded by saying that, "It goes without saying that the Gemballa Mirage GT is one of the finest automobiles we've ever featured." 
Gemballa Avalanche GTR800 EVO-R is a car based on the current 911 (997) GT2. Like the title suggests, this hypercar produces about 800 hp thanks to two turbochargers and highly modified engine components. Not much information is available at the moment but there are some pictures released at www.gemballa.com, the Gemballa website.
Gemballa also has a modification based on the Porsche 957 Cayenne Turbo. This produces around 750 brake horsepower. The modification is called GT 750 Aero 3. This modification is also available for the Cayenne's predecessor 955 turbo. The tune-up kit features exterior modification to enhance aerodynamic performance. Engine tuning is carried through revised turbochargers, coolers (oil and pressurized air IC) and a large collection of engine components including pistons and seals.
On the 17th of February, 2010, it was reported that Gemballa's founder, Uwe Gemballa has gone missing in Johannesburg, South Africa. According to reports, Gemballa, 54, was on a business trip when he went missing.
Different vehicles from the Gemballa car company can be found in the video games "Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition" and "Midnight Club: Dub Edition Remix". These games are for the PlayStation 2, PSP, and Xbox video game systems. A Gemballa can also be found in ToCA Race Driver 3. In Tokyo Xtreme Racer: 3, Uwe and his son Ken are two of the various "Wanderer" racers driving around.
