9ff GTurbo Delivers Up to 1,000 Horsepower Conversions for Porsche 911 GT3 and GT3 RS
The Porsche 997 has turned into the platform of choice for tuners looking to transform mere sports cars into tire vaporizing hypercars capable of rivaling stalwarts like the Bugatti Veyron and Koenigsegg CCX. Maybe it’s the bullet-proof engine or the inherent aerodynamic efficiencies, but a host of German and domestic mod shops have been cranking out some amazing performance from this platform. Ruf, Gemballa and Switzer all have proven packages with stratospheric specs, but 9ff has time and time again brought some game-changing fighters to the Porsche wars.
The company’s latest offering, the 9ff GTurbo is based on the Porsche 911 GT3 or the hardcore GT3 RS and offers 3 level of performance – 750 hp, 850 hp or a whopping 1,000 hp. With this much additional power being delivered, 9ff has crafted a special aero kit which includes a new front apron with LED indicators, side skirts and a rear apron (with variations for the center mounted GT3 and GT3RS and a left/right configuration for the other 997s). Special vents in the rear fenders deliver air to the intercooler while outlets in the front fender reduce wheel well pressure at speed.
All of this allows the 9ff GTurbo1000 to hit 62 mph from a stop in just 2.9 seconds and top out at 243 mph. The 9ff GTurbo850 is no slouch either, capable of running from 0 to 62 mph in 3 seconds flat with the GTurbo750 not far behind. The aero kit goes for €8,900 (approximately $12.500 USD), but there is no price information on the engine modifications. Other options include light alloy 5-spoke 19-inch wheels for €4,980 euros (about $7k) as well as center locking GTurbo design wheels for €5,950 (roughly $8,400) excluding paint.
