There aren’t a lot of aftermarket companies that know the ins and outs of Porsche models quite like edo competition, so it’s only fitting that the German tuner has already lined up a new program for one of Stuttgart’s finest. In this particular instance, edo competition set its sights on a 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo . And as soon as work began, magic started happening.
The objective of this program wasn’t so much to reinvent the 911 Turbo as it was giving it a more distinct character that hits all the right notes with a customer’s desire for individuality with their cars. With this objective in mind, the builders set out and completely put its stamp on the Porsche sports car, outfitting it with a combination of exterior, interior, and performance modifications.
This is the kind of work that really brings out the best in the 911, not only because of the comprehensive upgrades given to it, but because it combines all of edo competition’s mastery of aftermarket Porsche programs with the standard of excellence the Porsche 911 has come to be known for.
