2010 Porsche 911 Turbo by APS Sportec

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

APS Sportec has announced what its latest project -- a performance upgrade kit for the facelifted version of the 911 (997) Turbo -- is all about.

The standard car delivers 493 bhp from its 6-cylinder, 3,8 liter boxer engine but after the engineers of APS Sportec tweaked it, its output has been raised to 580 bhp at 6500 rpm, while peak torque hits 800 Nm (590 lb.ft) at 3500 rpm.

The conversion features a stainless steel sports exhaust system with high flow catalytic converters and two 70mm twin tailpipes.

The Sportec 997 Turbo sports exhaust system installed a couple of sound throttles, which makes the owner capable of defining and switching the exhaust note of the car in real time by using a supplied remote controller. APS Sportec also replaced the standard Porsche air filter with a Sportec high flow panel element.

Its ECU settings for fuelling, ignition and turbo boost parameters are reset by a bespoke Sportec remap. Nothing official has been announced yet but it's believed that the car can go from zero to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and can proceed to hit a top speed of about 197 mph (317 km/h).

The Sportec 580 upgrade package can be applied on the six speed manual or PDK variants of the Porsche 997 Turbo from November 2009 onwards. The tuning package has a price tag of £9400 and is now available from the UK concession APS of Brackley.
