The Porsche 911 is a car that needs no introduction and is one of the main reasons people are forgiving Porsche for their awkward and uncharacteristic sedan, the Panamera. With these reasons in tow, it always makes us a little nervous to hear that a tuning firm has picked up a 911 to undergo their own transformation of the car. We’ve seen our fair share of tuning disasters, but we must say one of the best types of tuning upgrades for a sports car is when the tuners decided to only bump up the power. Now that is something we can always get on-board with.

So hitting up the 2011 Geneva Motor Show floor was Swiss tuning firm, Sportec, and their package for the Porsche 997 Turbo. The package is called the SPR1 FL and includes an impressive horsepower update for the standard 3.8-liter flat-six engine. Sportec has taken the 500 hp up to a phenomenal 858 hp. No changes were made on the exterior - except for a new rear wing needed to improve the aerodynamic, - but who needs them with that amount of power under the hood, right?

In order to obtain that incredible 378 HP upgrade, Sportec added new hybrid turbochargers with a high performance intercooler, a smooth flow air inlet, a carbon fiber ram air induction system, a new exhaust system, titanium connecting rods, and continuous camshaft phasing. With this power under the hood, the SPR1 FL will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds, to 124 mph in under 8 seconds, and to 186 mph after only 10 seconds. Top speed goes up to an incredible 236 mph.

Should that read 20 seconds in the second last sentence of the report, "186 mph after only 10 seconds".

If not then that puts them 7 seconds faster to 186mph than the new McLaren P1. smiley

Actually the 0-60 and to 124 times are not that far behind the new hyper car. I salute you Sportec.

I am starting to like how Sportec works with its cars. Their take is rather simple and without a lot of fancy add ons, but they do give the cars’ engines a big boost.
