Imagine you go out there and buy the 991.2 Porsche 911 Turbo or Turbo S. You put a pedal to the metal, engaging launch control, and you are ready to nail the quarter-mile challenge, even though sprinting isn’t even a main objective of the Neunelfer.
Oh, and if you give the thing the serious tech massage, you might just match the 918 Spyder in the quarter-mile.
We have brought along the piece of footage that demonstrated the claim above, one that comes from the Yas Marina drag strip. That is where one of the hottest 2017 911 Turbos has been put to extreme velocity work.
Before heading out to the drag strip, a rear-engined coupe, which appears to be the Guards Red-dressed Turbo, received plenty of tuning attention.
Touched by the German-based specialist PP Performance, a 3.8-liter flat-six at the back of the machine has jumped from 540 horsepower to a whopping 735 ponies.
Such the upgrade requires moves such as replacing the turbochargers, and, much to one’s sleeper amusement, the exterior of the supercar doesn’t warn anybody on a monstrous gym visit.
As the result of all the tech work, the 911 Turbo was able to pull the 9.92s run at 223.91 km/h.
