Hey Aemel, Gemballa are one of the most respected Porsche tuners and after market suppliers around. They do pretty good stuff.

Spoke too soon :eek:


Gemballa – new company formed in December UPDATE: Gemballa Insolvent

In the ongoing saga of Uwe Gemballa’s disappearance, Cars UK has discovered that a new Gemballa Company was established in December, with the only shareholder Uwe’s 79 year old mother

We aren’t sure whether or not this information has any relevance to the disappearence of Uwe Gemballa and his alleged kidnapping. But…


We were tipped off yesterday by a guy who knows Uwe Gemballa well. He wanted to be careful not to imply anything with the information he gave us and urged us to imply nothing ourselves when we published his information. He also urged us to check out the information for ourselves. So we dug out the Cars UK credit card and did a search of recently registered German Companies. And what we found confirmed what he had told us.

In December a new Gemballa company was registered. It’s called GEMBALLA Sports Cars GmbH & Co. KG. There appears to be just one shareholder – the 79 year old mother of Uwe Gemballa,  Edith Maria Margaretha Gemballa-Jauss, who appears to have chipped in €1,000.

The last time the company records were updated was 5/2/2010. Just before Uwe Gemballa went to South Africa.

As we said, we are simply publishing this information in case it has any relevance to the situation. We’d like to believe it doesn’t.  The document is a matter of public record. And we’ve saved you a few bob in case you were wanting to look it up.

Breaking News: There is news coming in on the German DPA news wire that the main Gemballa company has applied to the German courts for an insolvency order. The news wire says:

    The court in Ludwigsburg said a law firm representing Gemballa’s wife had applied for insolvency. She had a power of attorney from her husband. A provisional insolvency administrator had been appointed.

Which rather vindicates the stories we ran on Gemballa being closed by the German authorities and our assertion that cars had been impounded.

The plot thickens.
