Sportec SP580 based on 2010 Porsche 997 Turbo Facelift

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The tuning specialists at Sportec have created an overall refining package for the 2010 Porsche 911 (997) Turbo Facelift dubbed SP580. The 911 supercar is known for its practicality and comfort as well as the 500hp it is able to deliver.

But for those who want more, Sportec is offering the 911 with discreet aerodynamic elements: a redesigned front fascia, new side skirts and a more generous rear spoiler.

If customization is what you're after, you can get the optional carbon rear wing, exterior mirrors and air intakes.

For its interior, the car has a new set of bucket seats and it has subtle revisions, including aluminum pedals and foot supports. Sportec also modified the 3.8 liter boxer engine to produce 580 hp (at 6,150 rpm) and 650 Nm of torque (between 1,950 and 5,000 rpm) with the use of a new ECU software.

As a result, the car can hit 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, and get to 200 km/h (125 mp/h) in 10.3 seconds.

The car can achieve a top speed of 323 km/h (202 mph). The 911's suspension system also got an upgrade with Sportec installing custom springs that lower the car by 20 mm.

Sportec offers a lowering module for the vehicles equipped with the Porsche Active Suspension Management System. The braking system has been replaced with a high performance one that uses 6 piston calipers for the front axle and 4 piston calipers for the rear one.
