Okay, so tuning one of the greatest production cars ever made isn’t the most original idea out there, but we are diehard Porsche enthusiasts and couldn’t pass up these two tuner cars.
Ohio-based tuner (yes, you read that correctly) Switzer Performance swapped out the obviously incapable stock turbos in favor of a pair of Garrett GT30Rs, which can support up to 900bhp when used in conjunction. Additionally, the ECU and exhaust receive major overhauls, boosting power output to about 800bhp on 93-octane pump gas. Running such a powerful machine on pump gas is not commonly a goal of such tuners, and to accomplish so much on an easily attainable fuel source shows how much more potential the GT2 has… which brings us to Dortmund’s own tuning powerhouse, 9ff, who have been creating Bugatti beaters for years, and their newest creation fits their mold perfectly. Their GT2 boasts 850bhp from a variety of modifications, and beneath the lively paint scheme are carbon fiber body panels and a wicked aero kit to further reduce the GT2′s already minimal drag coefficient. The end product of these modifications put the Porsche at 60mph in exactly three seconds; amazingly, the car doesn’t run out of breath until it hits a McLaren-esque 240mph. The best feature on the car is undoubtedly the customizable gearing: the GT2 can be tweaked primarily for acceleration, top end speed, or a happy medium of the two.
