Porsche Turbo

Porsche Turbo

The Porsche tuners, Sportec, showed the world their SPR1 M at the Geneva Motor Show back in March, but today is time to meet the latest addition to the Sportec family of turbocharged German sports car that goes above and beyond the normal offering from Stuttgart. The SPR1 T80 based on a Porsche 911 Turbo is powered by a 3.6 Liter 6 cylinder boxer engine that delivers an astounding 858 HP, this is enough power to launch the modified 911 from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.0 seconds, hit 300 km/h (186 MPH) in 18.9 seconds. The T80 has been clocked at the Nardo test track in Italy at a top speed of 236 MPH.

Just like the SPR1 M, the T80’s exterior has been rounded out, smoothed and aerodynamically tuned with a host of lightweight carbon fiber pieces; like the flat under floor and carbon Kevlar body panels. The SPR1 features racecar equipment like an active suspension and F1 style ceramic brake discs. These technologies allow the SPR1 to be lighter, safer and more capable than other cars in its class. The 200 MPH+ Porsche is also available with exclusive SPORTEC styling and interior touches like the and leather/alcantara upholstery. On the outside the SPR1 T80 wears a set of lightweight 20 inch forged alloy wheels, a carbon fiber rear wing to let serve as much form as they do function.

So you love mountain-biking! Who doesn’t? But lets presume the mountain is far from you and the only car you’re having is a Porsche Turbo (ya, you wish for, we know!), but you still want to ride your bike in the deep into the forest. What do you do? Get inventive like this guy! Oh, and choose one friend to go with you!

Vorsteiner V-RT

The California based tuners Vorsteiner have just released their latest racing technologies package for the current generation Porsche Turbo . The package consists of a complete aerodynamic alteration of the Porsche’s body panels to create a more functional design that can slice through the air. Vorsteiner also fitted the V-RT 997 with a set of the company’s own 3 piece forged rims measuring 20 inches in diameter.

SpeedART revealed details on the BTR 630 based on the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo . Why BTR 630? Simple: because it delivers a total of 630 hp (a 130 hp increase over the 500 hp for the standard model).

The aerodynamic package includes a front chin spoiler and adjustable rear wing. The output increase has been possible thanks to a modified VTG-turbo chargers, headers, sport exhaust with sound switch, sport catalysts, sport air filter and ECU-update.

The BTR 630 sits on 20" wheels type LSC-FORGED and features a Sport suspension with PASM and stabilizer kit.

Porsche 911 (998) Turbo spy shot

Porsche is preparing the next generation 911 (998) and the first test mule of the Turbo version has been spotted testing. The car will get the full 998 treatment including more upright headlights. One of the more peculiar elements from this spy shot is the door mirrors mounted directly on the door body, which has not yet been seen on any other 998.

Porsche will not stray far from the usual formula with the new turbo. It will still be powered by a water-cooled flat-six engine, only now the automatic transmission available will be the quick-shift PDK dual-clutch transmission. Expect the next generation 911 Turbo by 2011.

The Porsche 911 Turbo models are offered with new 19-inch RS Spyder wheels. The most outstanding feature of these forged aluminum lightweight wheels with their seven U-shaped double spokes is the unique, newly developed central locking. Instead of the wheel nuts generally used in motorsport, these very special wheels come with wheel bolts fastening the new 19-inch RS Spyder wheels firmly and safely on the wheel bearing.

The innovative security mechanism on the wheel bearing is made up of a cartridge fitted in the wheel hub with spring-mounted security bolts. Standing out clearly and impressively, the bolts on the new central locking are eloxy-plated in titanium colour and thus differ clearly and distinctly from the silver-coloured paintwork on the 19-inch RS Spyder wheels.

After giving the 911 Carrera , Carrera 4S and Targa a minor facelift (as well as a through reworking), Porsche is now focusing on touching up the 911 Turbo.

Although the world debut will be made in January at the Detroit Auto Show, we can already see that the new turbo will get the same front and rear bumper treatment of the lesser 911s. Also, the "whale tail" spoiler that has always distinguished the turbo model will be reduced in size and distinction. The new upgraded turbo engine, probably displacing 3.8-litres, is said to make an extra 20hp from the previous generation (and will likely make the Nissan GT-R tremble).

Another world record smashed: the 9ff GT9 hit an incredible speed of 409 km/h becoming the fastest road-going vehicle in the world.

9ff breaks the world-record for road-going vehicles

The 9ff GT9 accelerates to 100 km/h in only 3.4 seconds, to 200km/h in only 8.2 seconds and the digital display of the instrument panel shows the 300 km/h in unbelievable 16.4 seconds. The source of power for this overwhelming power is a modified motor from the Porsche 996 Turbo.

The water-cooled 6-cylinder horizontally opposed engine with 4 liters cubic capacity and dry sump is equipped with two exhaust twin turbo chargers, titanium connecting rods, forged pistons and a 24 carat hard gold plated induction plate. Thereby, the high-tech aggregate achieves sensational 987 PS / 726 kW at 7,850 r.p.m. The maximum torque of 964 Nm is reached at 5,970 r.p.m.

After unveiling the 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 last month, Porsche is now working on a facelift version of the Porsche 911 Turbo convertible, which launches next year.

Like the recently launched version, the Turbo Convertible will also feature a direct injection engine and the Porsche’s ’PDK dual-clutch gearbox.

The power will increase with 20-30 hp, meaning it will go beyond 500bhp. Also direct injection also means that the Turbo will be around 15 percent more economical than before.
