A new tuner from Germany has jumped right into the world of fine tuning by focusing on a couple of well-known luxury brands. Anna Bizer currently sells tuning packages for the likes of Porsche and Bentley and decided to bring a couple of her pieces of art to the Top Marques Monaco.

The first was a Porsche 997 Turbo that she endearingly calls, “Lightning”. This 997 features Gemballa exhaust tips, LSD doors, a complete body kit, and a massive rear wing. The exhaust system and 20” wheels have both been inner changed while the ECU upgrade brings 540bhp to the table. The entertainment has also been tweaked by adding an Alpine stereo with a front and rear camera.

Of course, this particular vehicle is no stranger to tuning practices. Just recently, we have reported several tuning kits for the Porsche 997 Turbo such as the ones from TechArt , SpeedART , and Mansory . Each tuning company adds a few exterior modifications such as a new spoiler and a different exhaust system while the most effective difference is the boost in power. Although we can’t say that Anna Bizer’s design is original, we can definitely say that it is striking. Nice job and good luck!

Now this is a matte blue-finished car that was done just right. We’re not drawing any comparisons to the Mercedes CLS55 AMG here, and although it should be said that both cars were given the exact color and texture treatment, thisPorsche 997 Carrera MK2 was able to accomplish the matte blue exterior without the car getting bastardized by a car tuner.

No offense fellas, but this is how you use matte blue on a sports car. It helps that it’s a Porsche , which is one of those rare brands that can get away with just about any exterior finish, but in the bigger scheme of things, we think that people should err on the side of caution when it comes to dressing up cars of this magnitude.

It works for a Porsche, but it doesn’t mean it’s going to work for something else.

For those of you driving a 2005-2008 997 Carrera, TechArt has prepared a special AeroKit II program. It includes a roof spoiler as well as three different types of rear wings: Rear Wing I, Ring Wing II and a distinctive Rear Wing III with its static wing profile. These wings enable precise aerodynamic adjustments at the rear axle.

Also, thanks to small ECU modifications and new sport exhaust systems the engine can deliver an extra 15hp. The new sport exhausts systems are the "Sport" and the "Racing" with dual-tube tailpipes in chrome and black chrome.

The interior gets select materials, tastefully coordinated colors, and a sense of design with unmatched precision and craftsmanship that is immediately noticed. It is TechArt’s aim to turn the driver’s individual vision of their 911 interior into a reality. Whether you prefer to set selective highlights or entrust TechArt to create a unique interior design to your specifications, TechArt does not set limits.

SpeedArt unveiled the BTR II 650 EVO, a tuning kit based on the new Porsche Turbo , at the Geneva Motor Show. Starting with the 3,8 liter engine, the tuner added a modified motronic to enlarged the power boost, VTG-turbo chargers, a sport exhaust with sport cats and twin tail pipes plus sport headers/manifolds, sport air filter and enlarged intercoolers. The result is an increase of 150 hp and 150 NM, a sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3,2 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph.

The aerodynamic kit includes: a new designed front bumper with spoiler lip and gun-metal frames, side skirts, rear diffuser and a rear spoiler with movable rear wing. The car sits on 20" twin spoke wheels.

In case you’re wondering what it’s all about, then we can explain everything you need to know in a few simple words: Porshce 997 RSR . Noise. Lots of noise.

Now, it may look a little dramatic for your own liking, but you have to trust us, that goose-bumping roar of the 997 RSR makes it up for it in a huge way.

The tuning firm Mansory is well known for their extensive use of exotic carbon fiber to create wild high performance machines like the Cayenne based Chopster and are following up the tradition at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show with a very special customized Porsche 997 Turbo . The boosted 911 will include upgrades both inside and out as well as under the rear deck lid, focusing on improving the performance of the twin turbocharged flat six power plant.

The Mansory designed aero package is made up of a new front front bumper complete with lip spoiler with integrated splitter made from lightweight carbon fiber and a GT2 like vent at the top. Out back the Mansory tuned Turbo wears an over sized carbon fiber rear wing giving it the character of a race car while prowling the streets improving the backwards engineered sports car’s stability by providing lots of down force over the wide rear tires. Underneath, Mansory has included a new vented rear apron that not only makes the 997 appear to be even more aggressive, but improves cooling at the same time. As far as horsepower is concerned, Mansory has crafted a sport tuned exhaust system being fed by a set of tuned turbo manifolds to create a screaming powerhouse.

TPC Racing is known for producing some of the best tuned sports cars on the road today with Porsche being one of their specialties. In the past, TPC Racing has taken stabs at modding a number of Porsche s, including a 911 and a Cayman with all of them showing a dramatic increase in power and performance after going under the knife, TPC style.

And now, the racing team has released a teaser video of their latest baby, a Porsche 997 2S that was given a single turbo conversion. The teaser video isn’t all that long and it only shows a brief glimpse of the Single Turbo Kit that was outfitted in the 997. But regardless of how long the teaser video is, the sound of the roaring engine was enough for us to be convinced that TPC Racing is well on its way to converting this particular 997 into a monstrous beast.

The car tunings for Porsche never seems to end. This time, it’s the Porsche 997 GT3 , courtesy of Sharkwerks and Evolution Motorsports.

In addition to the apple green exterior, the US-based car tuners upgraded the 997 GT3’s engine by adding 0.3 liters, from a 3.6-liter engine in the traditional 997 GT3 to 3.9-liter to their own version. As a result, the tuners were able to spike the 997 GT3’s horsepower from 415 hp to 502 hp.

Likewise, the two tuners developed their own parts for the car, with Sharkwerks working on the piston upgrades and Evolution Motorsports banging up an upgraded cylinder kit for the 997 GT3.

A video of the work done by the Sharkwerks and Evolution Motorsports is available so you can see first-hand how the whole process of tuning the 997 GT3 came about.

There’s always a thin line between being caught in the cross-fires and plunging head-on to it. That was the situation two men from Ottawa found themselves in and they chose the latter.

Riding in a 2008 Porsche 997 , Ryan O’Connor and Matt Speza – the brother of the Ottawa Senators’ Jason Speza – chased down a man who had just sexually assaulted a distraught woman.

The two men were driving around the streets of Ottawa when a woman jumped in front of them and asked for help after being sexually assaulted. O’Connor and Speza then told the woman to get in the car after which they chased down the suspect along a number of residential areas in the city, even going at speeds in excess of 170 kmh.

The chase finally ended when the assailant ran into a police barricade along Highway 416.

The U.K based tuning firm Cargraphic has just unveiled a new tuning package for the Porsche 911 Turbo 997 , the GT RSC 3.6. This highly modified 911 Turbo’s power plant has been boosted in order to achieve a maximum output of 624 HP up from the standard 473 HP offering from the 3.6 Liter flat six engine.

The 911’s body has been upgraded with a low hanging downforce inducing front lip that looks like it will scrape the surface over rough roads and a large oversized rear wing to keep the heavy end of the turbocharged Porsche planted to the road. Rounding out the exterior of the Cargraphic GT RSC 3.6 are a set of staggered black mesh racing wheels complete with a decorative white stripe around the rim and a deep dish rear lip with a set of oversized brakes underneath.

Inside the modified Carrera a full roll cage stiffens the chassis enough to handle the extra 150 HP from the boosted boxer engine. Thanks to the newfound grunt, the Cargraphic GT RSC RSC 3.6 is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.0 seconds and reach 180 MPH from rest in only 22.8 seconds. The twin turbo 997 is quite the impressive machine from the factory, but with a little help from Cargraphic it becomes a true super car competitor.
