9ff Porsche 911 Turbo - Particle accelerator

The new Porsche Turbo is everything but slow, this brand new über-Carrera romps to 60mph within 3.7 seconds. The Porsche's top speed of almost 193 mph should work for the everyday use - almost.

However, for the true performance enthusiasts, too much is simply never enough. These men can never have enough power – and for this reason power hungry Porsche Turbo owners who demand maximum performance insist on 9ff enhancement shortly after their purchases. Not for the average Porsche driver, 9ff customers insist on performance without compromise. Not content to have plastic bodied “competitors” or temperamental Italians show them their taillights - for these drivers you can never have “enough” performance.

Who else to turn to but a company who builds street-able, reliable vehicles with more than 900 HP and is able to launch a road-registered 911 to top speeds in excess of 388 km/h? The special assignment of course – to enhance an already high tech Porsche Turbo.

Charged with such responsibility, the professors of speed at the Dortmund company diligently set to work on the engineering tasks and development and were shortly able to show some excellent results. Drawing upon their past experience, they were able to push the physical limits – obtaining stratospheric Horsepower outputs. Due to the fact that not every client has the same requirements the performance kits were divided into three different categories.

9ff tunes the Porsche 997 Turbo: Stage I

The first set is a sport exhaust system which includes metal catalytic converters, freefl owing air fi lters and newly programmed software, which boosts the Porsche's power, but retains stock-like reliability and drivability. Of course, the biggest news is the assertive and authoritative retort that replaces the muted whimper of the newly enhanced turbo fl at six. Of course the 9ff VariotuneTM with selectable sound control system propagates in the DNA. This fi rst stage of enhancement liberates 535HP from the standard VTG turbos. Acceleration remains at a blistering 3.7sec 0-60, but the stage I 9ff enhancement boosts top speed up to a cool 202mph and shaves 1.2 sec from the 0-125mph sprint!

9ff tunes the Porsche 997 Turbo: Stage II

Performance kit no. 2 includes in addition to kit no. 1 the highest quality stainless steel headers and custom 9ff sport camshafts. Maximum power peaks at 560 HP, but its 550 ft-lb of lag-free, stump pulling torque creates quit a push. The AWD turbo performs the stoplight sprint to 60mph within 3.6 seconds and reaches 125mph in 11.3 seconds. Again a remarkable improvement compared to the exemplary, but staid in comparison stock version.

9ff tunes the Porsche 997 Turbo: Stage III

For now, this is the ultimate state of 997 turbo enhancement. Peak HP rises to 640HP, while torque swells to nearly 600 ft-lb! Very impressive indeed! Additional enhancements from the stage II powerkit are two larger VTG turbo and king-size aluminum intercoolers to eliminate heat soak and maximize VTG-assisted boost. The path of boosted gasses is similarly enhanced – as high boost hoses and fi ttings are specifi ed. Thus equipped, the Stage III 9ff Porsche turbo rockets to 60mph in 3.5 seconds, 125 in 10.7 sec and continues charging on, until the forces of aerodynamic drag fi nally impede its progress at an allconquering 213mph. Do you dare?

Now offering all three stages of tune. How much is enough for you? Clear the left lane of competition.
