If you’re a tuning addict who loved the cars at the SEMA Show, but prefer more European models, then the 9ff Porsche 997 Turbo Speed9 debuting at the Essen Motor Show is for you. The Essen Show in Germany always has the top of the line European makes and models on display, so don’t miss out if you’re nearby. This Porsche 997 Turbo has been inspired by the legendary 356 (circa 1955) with roots coming from the 997 Turbo cabrio. Featuring the 3.6-liter twin-turbo, 9ff was able to obtain 650 hp from the stock 473 horsepower. The 6-cylinder sports car received an aftermarket exhaust, ECU tuning, and a new catalytic converter. These are impressive numbers for some simple modifications, and the tuners didn’t stop there.
The body kit on the Porsche 997 Turbo Speed9 is definitely one-of-a-kind. 9ff developed a styling kit that removed the rear seats for a speedster profile, and included new body parts for a unique look. They installed a new front air dam, side skirts, and rear bumper that all give a striking appearance. Pricing has not been released yet, but you can expect it to be expensive, given Porsche’s don’t come cheap.
