The 911 Turbo S gets tuned and fitted with COR Wheels

The 991 generation Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S have really raised the bar when it comes to performance. Now edo competition has added more power, style, and even COR Wheels to make it even more exciting.

One of the biggest names when it comes to performance in the supercar world is the Porsche 911 Turbo. Its long history of serving up some serious power coupled with an exclusive price tag and a number of unique technology options have helped to put it in a class of its own. The new 991 generation  Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S have made a big splash in the supercar world thanks to their utterly incredible acceleration figures and advanced technology that keeps their wheels gripping at every corner. The team at edo competition wanted to make these supercars even more potent and excited so they created their own upgrade program that includes everything from engine tuning to new COR Wheels and exterior styling for every customer.

 

The German aftermarket tuning team at edo competition first started to work on the 3.8 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six cylinder engine in the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Knowing that it drives all four COR Wheels allows them to create some serious power without having to worry about control or wheel slippage. They installed a new stainless steel exhaust system with a special catalytic converter setup that reduces backpressure even more and allows the exhaust gasses to exit as quick as possible. A full ECU software tune helps to optimize variables like the spark, ignition, and more and allows for more power to be created. In total, those two upgrades lead to a whopping 590 bhp and 575 lb-ft. of torque. All that power helps the Porsche 911 Turbo S by edo competition reach 62 mph in only 2.8 seconds while the top speed is pushed back to 203 mph.

 

All of that added power means that other parts of the car such as the chassis have to be upgraded. Here, the team installed a new set of specially designed sport shocks that add a firmer ride in order to handle corners with ease. These shocks also lower the overall ride height of the Porsche 911 Turbo by a total of 30 mm for a lower center of gravity. To aid in improving the overall driving dynamics, the factory rim and tire setup was replaced with a set of new multi-spoke center-locking COR Wheels. The new COR Wheels were installed in a large 21-inch diameter and given a clean silver finish. A new set of Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires were also installed to achieve better grip.

 

The exterior of the car was also modified. The team installed a new vinyl wrap that dramatically changes the look of the supercar and can be removed without damaging the paint.
