9ff GTurbo: A Porsche GT3 on Steroids
What has 1000 horsepower, hits 60 in the 2s and can hit nearly 250 miles per hour? If you're thinking the Bugatti Veyron, well...you're right. But that's not the only show in town. Not if 9ff has anything to say about it.
The Porsche tuner extraordinaire has a history – not a long one, mind you, but an accomplished one – of taking "ordinary" sportscars and turning them into the pinacle of supercars. We've brought you news of their modified 911 GT2, 911 Turbo, Panamera and even the GT9-R, which could very well be the fastest car in the world. And now we bring you the GTurbo.
Starting with the 911 GT3 or GT3 RS, 9ff bolts on a pair of turbochargers to bring power up incrementally from 450 up to 750, 850 or even 1000 horsepower at the buyer's request. The result, at full tilt, is Veyron-like performance. But while they've announced pricing for the aerodynamic body kit (8,900 euros), the five-spoke 19" wheels (4,980 euros) and the optional central-locking rims (5,950 euros), if you have to ask how much the turbo kit costs, you may be able to afford it, but whether you'll have the ability to drive it is another story.
