Edo Competition’s Blue Arrow is the quickest and fastest Porsche 911 (991) Turbo S

Article by Christian A., on July 24, 2017

Here comes Blue Arrow, a Porsche 911 (991) Turbo S tuned by Edo Competition that is even quicker and faster than the 911 GT2 RS. Moreover, it is definitely the most powerful, quickest and fastest 991 Turbo S there is so far.

There is no denying that any Porsche sports car is an epitome of quickness and speed. Among the current generation (seventh) of the Porsche 911 – the Porsche 991 – the 911 GT2 RS takes the cake. But when the 911 GT2 RS is taken out of the equation, the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is definitely a serious monster.

Edo Competition has toyed around the idea of creating the most powerful, quickest and fastest version of the Porsche 991 Turbo S. Of course, a standard 991 Turbo S is not, in any way, underpowered. Sitting at the heart of the 991 Turbo S is a 3.8 liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that could provide up to 580 PS (427 hp) in output and up to 700 Nm in torque, thanks to turbochargers with a larger impeller. At this power level, the Porsche 991 Turbo could accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 330 km/h.

On the other hand, a special edition of the 991 Turbo S -- the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series – was recently released and boasts of serious steroids. Its 3.8-liter bi-turbo engine has been fitted with an exclusive power kit that increases the power level of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series to 607 PS (446 kW) of max output and 750 Nm of peak torque. Meanwhile, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS has the same engine tuned to a whopping 700 PS (515 kW) of max output and 750 Nm of peak torque. This power level allows the Porsche 911 GT2 RS to sprint from nil to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and achieve a max speed of 340 km/h.

As tuned, Blue Arrow poses a real challenge to these performance figures. Its lighter engine – a 3.8-liter bi-turbo mill – has been tuned with Edo Competition’s performance kit, enabling it to deliver 675 PS (496 kW in max output) and 850 Nm of peak torque. Such a high level of torque (even more than the GT2 RS) is enough to send the Blue Arrow dashing from a standstill to 100 km/h in 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of over 344 km/h.

Emotions rise high with the Blue Arrow as it is being driven, thanks to a redesigned Sport muffler made from stainless steel. It also comes with tri-alloy cat converter. It employs an Edo / KW racing chassis with closure set or specially developed sport suspension springs, bringing its height lower by 30 mm.

As for its exterior, Blue Arrow features a GT3 RS-finished carbon front bonnet, color-coordinated brake calipers, lightweight carbon battery with carbon holding brackets and other enhancements. It rides on 20-inch ultra-light forged wheels that are available in various color combinations and that are wrapped in tires that measure 9.0 x 20 with 245/35R20 on the front and 12.5 x 21 with 325/25R21 at the rear.

Interestingly, Edo Competition is already developing stage II of tuning for the Porsche 991 Turbo S.

edo competition and its latest project “Blue Arrow”
Behind the name is a 911 Turbo S facelift model with an increased performance of almost 100 break horsepower!

This means that the Blue Arrow is an unbelievable 6.2 seconds faster than the series model! Producing a maximum torque of 850 Nm / 2000-4350 1/min. (Series model 750 Nm, 2250-4000 1/min.) and a whopping 675 break horsepower (496 Kw), the Blue Arrow can reach a top speed of over 344 km/h.
