Sportec has prepared a new tuning package for the facelifted version of the 997 Turbo, both Coupe and Cabriolet versions. The tuner is offering two performance stages and a wide range of wheels.

In stage one the performance optimization was obtained with an ECU reprogramming and a new sport air filter. The result is 550 hp at 6400 RPM and a peak torque of 750 Nm at 3400 RPM. Top speed has increased to 200 mph while the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in 3.2 seconds.

In stage two performance optimization was obtained by combining ECU reprogramming with a sport air filter, a high performance exhaust system with high-flow catalytic converters, sound throttles incl. controller, and two 70mm double endpipes. The result is 580 hp at 6500 RPM and a peak torque of 800 Nm at 3400 RPM while top speed remains at 200 mph.

Customers can also choose between 19" or 20" wheels in different colors and designs.

Compared to the tuning package provided for the Porsche by Tech Art, this package falls a tad short. TechArt allowed for more horsepower and even included some aesthetic changes to the vehicle, but at least with Sportec you get to choose lots of different wheels (insert chuckle here).

At the first glance I thought it was a battery controlled car. But speaking of being purist I rather choose GT2 over this one. I live for RWD. This is pretty nice and the tuner performs really good.

The Sportec ‘580’ conversion for the facelift 997 Turbo features a stainless steel sports exhaust system with high flow catalytic converters and two 70mm ‘twin’ tailpipes.

The 3.6 l engine – already ex works a quite powerful one – produces in its standard version 480hp and a torque of 458 lb-ft. Thanks to its turbo technology, the powertrain offers the ideal possibilities to elicit a steady performance peak from the Porsche by means of software modifications.

Sweet upgrades. I have to wonder though if some of the Porsche owners, those who owns then cause they can afford them but doesn’t necessarily mean they can drive it to it’s best, can really push it to it’s best performance or do they just have it for display or as a sign that they are rich people. I hope I can sort of win the lottery or something to get my self one of this things too. Man can dream right. lol

Sportec just turn their focus on the performance of the engine. unlike techart. They focus more on Aerodynamic kits such as diffuser, side skirts, front lip and front vents.

Honestly driving over 180MP is just for fun and can ease you need for speed. I’m pretty sure if you got your chance driving it you will be tempt to put it’s pedal to the metal I promise you that.

For sure it is fun to drive a 200MPH but to risky. Driving more than 180 is already hard to concentrate that’s why there are only few drivers who dares to do it
