Thought I’d write a quick update on what I have recently heard of the current state of the Porsche 997 Tuners. These, in most cases are respected Porsche tuners, however there seems to be some information (relayed to me) that I thought I might make public aroundtheir performance.I heard some rather interesting and a bit disturbing information on how they develop their tunes and why in most cases they are flawed.
It’s been a few months now that a strange creek has developed from the front of the car, and progressively becoming worse (after spirited driving or any prolonged drive on a hot day). Going consensus is that it is the front Control Arm. I figured, if I’m replacing that, I might as well replace some other suspension parts.
10 MUST DO suspension modifications for the Porsche 997 Turbo that will have a dramatic benefit on handling and bring the all wheel drive super-car as close to as possible to a GT3 track monster.
Official photos for the 2013 Porsche 991 turbo have been released, all of which look to have been taken in Cape Town South Africa. For the standard Turbo, the result is 520 horsepower, with a conservative 0-60 mph sprint of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 196 mph. Turbo S with 560 horsepower, 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph.
Mercedes has just released the G63 AMG 6×6, the worlds largest and most extreme road legal SUV – a perfect machine to bring in, what ever Apocalypse you see coming, in style. This brute of a vehicle is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.5 liter V8 power plant that generates a staggering 536bhp and 560lb ft of torque.
Mind blowing technology, simply staggering numbers – pretty much all I could say after watching Porsche’s Andreas Preuninger (The man behind all of Porsche’s GT cars) elaborate on the technology that went into the 991 Porsche GT3. Among them the fastest gear shifting mechanism in ANY production car on the planet. Les than 100th of a millisecond, together with an updated engine capable of over 9000 rpm range!
Featuring four turbochargers, two intercoolers, four adjustable camshafts, a complex multistage intake manifold, and dual-stage exhaust, the 3.9-liter engine is expected to deliver 650 hp and shoot the machine from a standstill to 100 km/h in an estimated 2.5 seconds.
