What do you get when you take a Ferrari 3.0L V8 engine, mate it to a BMW M3 sequential gearbox and slap four of the fattest michelin pilot sport tirest to it – one of the angriest machines we have seen to date!
These guys test a lot of vehicles and were one of the first to put the Porsche 997 Turbo S through it’s paces. Their test vehicle blew through the 3 second mark and was quickly compared to the Bugatti Veyron when it came to launching from a dig!
We got a few owner-experts and one semi-professional driver to test out a stock 2007 Porsche Turbo, another equipped with after market Bilstein coilovers (and other goodies), a 2008 GT2, and 2010 Porsche GT3. Switching back and forth between all four cars for about 3-4 hours in twisty canyon roads – we all reached some interesting conclusions.
These are some crazy aero kits out of a German based tuner. It’s tough to say if there are any improvements to suspension, engine or other internals but from the three stages (stage 1 through stage 3) that have been made public it looks like they are hitting all the right notes.
Now things start to get interesting, with the arrival of forced induction set to move the 991 into another performance league. As with the current car, the new 991 Porsche Turbo will get a wider bodywork and what is confirmed by early spy shots, big air intakes ahead of the rear wheels. The rear wheels look to be 20-inch as standard.
