Hearing “Porsche”, “911”, and “Turbo” in the same sentence always gets any car enthusiast's attention. Also utter the words “Carbon Fiber”, “GT2 components”, and “custom wheels,” and you're going to have undivided attention, along with impatience as your listener waits to hear the rest of the specs of said car. Lucky for you, you're looking at it; a special 911 Turbo that has a number of really great upgrades, and handsome looks. A picture says a thousand words, and in the case of this Porsche, a look at all the pics is worth your time.
Those familiar with the 997 generation Porsche will see that there are some key cosmetic differences between this car and a standard 911 Turbo. Yes, one obvious difference is the wheels which are 20” Vossen multi spoke wheels finished in anthracite, but also a more aggressive looking GT2 front end has been added to the car, as well as a GT2 rear spoiler. The usual GT2 front chin spoiler is there too, but is a carbon fiber piece, as is the “Smile vent” that is mounted near the Porsche crest at the front of the car.
As it should be in a 911 Turbo, a 480 horsepower 3.6L Flat-6 engine with twin turbos and twin intercoolers is mounted at the rear of the car. A 480 horsepower engine plus a 3495 pound car adds up to mind bending acceleration, and a fun side effect of a big grin on your face. The all wheel drive system does it's absolute best to put all that power to the ground for a smooth seamless takeoff, and consistent power delivery throughout the rev range. With all that power, and up to 17 pounds of boost surging through the Turbos, the all wheel drive system is challenged when you 'give it the beans'. Also challenged, but surely up to the job, is the Porsche Doppelkupplung or “PDK” transmission. It's a dual clutch transmission that offers crisp, extremely quick gear shifts whether you're letting it do the shifting, or you're shifting manually. We should also mention that the car was recently serviced - plugs, coil packs, all filters, brakes, and front CV boots have all been replaced.
In the spirit of the 911's slight, and purposeful evolution as the years and generations go by, the interior is a familiar place to be, and offers many of the design elements that the first generation 911 had. Five gauge cluster, comfortable seating position, integrated door panel pockets, two vents mounted centrally on the dash, and the familiar high backed “tombstone” style seats finished in black leather are a few of the interior highlights of this car that have been carried on with each iteration of the 911. The interior also features a few other tasteful modifications. A few more carbon fiber pieces have been added in the form of the interior door sills, and the steering wheel. A new infotainment system replaces the standard Porsche unit and offers a large number of apps.
Under 50k miles, twin turbo, tasteful mods, and a member of the beloved 911 family, this car ticks all the right boxes. It's a future classic that can be enjoyed now, whether being driven or just looking at the iconic and immediately recognizable lines of the car. The seat-of-the-pants dyno ratings in this car are enough to make even the toughest critics smile, so make room for this GT2-inspired 911 Turbo in your stable, you won't regret it.
