It was at the 1974 Paris Motor Show when the German sports car maker Porsche unveiled a turbocharged version of the classic 911 for the first time when they pulled the covers back off of a 3.0 Liter Porsche 930 Turbo, a model which at the time amazed audiences with its 260 HP maximum output and the ability to reach a 155 MPH top speed. In 2009 the 911 Turbo entered its seventh generation, with considerable performance improvements resulting in a Carrera Turbo that is almost twice as powerful as the original.

Even if the design has changed, the new Turbo remains unmistakably a 911, with a sporty focus on the driving essentials. The outer air intakes on the front apron now come with titanium colored slats. Sitting low to their left and right are the new daytime running lights in the same manner as the LED indicators and safety is even further enhanced with the optional dynamic cornering light function while the side mirrors have been revised for a better rearward visibility. At the rear of the new Turbo, the Porsche wears a new set of distinctive LED taillights that have a tapered design and extend deep into the contours of the rear fascia. The fast response LED brake lights underline the car’s purposeful look and enhance active safety by offering more warning to traffic approaching from the rear.

As with the outgoing 2006 Turbo model, the flat six cylinder engine features a pair of snails with Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG), but the new unit’s displacement has been increased to 3.8 Liters and now develops 500 HP and as much as 516 lb-ft of torque with the Sport Chrono Package. This allows the new 91 Turbo to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in only 3.4 seconds and reach a 194 MPH top speed when it goes on sale in the U.S. on January 30 with the coupe being priced at $132,800 and $143,800 for the cabriolet.

When you talk about sports cars, Porsche ’s rear engine 911 Turbo with its wide tires and broad shoulders is easily one of the most desired automobiles on the planet. However, even if the turbocharged all wheel drive sports coupe is practically perfect straight from the factory, there are a few aftermarket tuners who beg to differ.

Porsche 911 Turbo BTR II by SpeedArt

The most recent high performance application comes from the German power specialists at SpeedArt. Their new customization program for the 911 Turbo starts at the heart of the beast with a reprogrammed ECU and a less restrictive sports exhaust system that increases the maximum output of the boosted 3.8 Liter flat six to 580 HP and 568 lb-ft of torque, up from the standard 500 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque. The added horse power allows the modified 911 to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.2 seconds and reach an unrestricted top speed of 202 MPH.

With a name like SpeedArt, the German tuner knows that there is no point in being able to accelerate like a rocket ship if you don’t look good doing it, so they upgrade the exterior of the 911 Turbo as well as the power unit. Their aero kit is inspired by the track ready 911 GT3 model. Featuring a host of sports inspired body mods made up of a more aggressive front apron, lower hanging side skirts and a new rear diffuser to complete the ground effects package. Mounted on the back of the SpeedArt Turbo are a pair of airfoils consisting of a rooftop spoiler and a more traditional rear wing. However the pièce de résistance are the color matching side mirrors, front lip, 20 inch rollers and side decals that let you know this is no ordinary 911.

We are well aware of what the German tuning firm 9ff is capable of when they put their minds to something, like the 253 MPH GT9R or the 850 HP BT2 complete with classic Gulf Racing livery. However 9ff is set to unveil something a little more mundane at the upcoming 2009 Essen Motor Show with the Speed9. While it is based on a 911 Turbo , 9ff is paying homage to the classic 1955 Porsche 356 1500S Speedster for all those high performance Porsche aficionados who want to ride around with the wind in their hair.

9ff Speed9

Thanks to modern day running gear, the only thing that is reminiscent of the old ’55 is the styling. Covering that aspect 9ff included a new ground effects package that consists of a new front apron, side skirts and rear bumper along with 9ff Speed9 sports seats and matching steering wheel. The 911 Turbo that serves as the vehicle’s foundation received an upgraded ECU, free flowing exhaust and a set of sport catalytic converters that let the bi turbo flat six breathe to the tune of 650 HP and 656 lb-ft of torque. Even though 9ff hasn’t let us in on any performance figures as of yet, you can expect the Speed9 to go faster than you ever want to with the top down.
