At the top of the Porsche 911 model lineup sits the Turbo S variant. It may not have the hardcore track oriented makeup of the Porsche 911 GT3 or GT3 RS, but its the most powerful production car in the lineup except for the limited-production 911 GT2 and GT2 RS. The 911 Turbo S boasts a wealth of standard features that are optional across the model line as well as the most powerful version of the 3.8-liter flat-six twin-turbocharged engine. Due to the powerful nature of the supercar, it was the perfect candidate for the team at McChip-DKR to transform into a full on track day superstar with their new list of upgrades. The German bases aftermarket tuning company installed a wide variety of parts ranging from the engine to the forged wheels and suspension, to a few interior goodies for safety and performance. The result was a supercar that was just at home on the racetrack as it was the autobahn.
The first and one of the most important aspects of the Porsche 911 Turbo S from the 997-generation to be upgraded was the 3.8-liter flat six-cylinder, twin-turbocharged engine that sits at the back of the supercar. The team at McChip-DKR installed a new exhaust system with sport catalytic converters for better exhaust gas flow and a new set of high performance headers that reduce backpressure even further for the turbocharged engine. The German aftermarket tuning team then got to work on reprogramming the ECU with new software to optimize a variety of parameters for more performance. After the tune, the car is capable of sending a total of 600 horsepower and 815 Nm of torque to all four of the forged wheels for even quicker acceleration and top speed figures.
For a car that is built for the racetrack, its important to have a dynamic chassis in order to achieve quick lap times. The McChip-DKR team installed some new suspension goodies and a set of lightweight forged wheels that allow for the cars chassis to be even more nimble. The entire suspension was fitted with new Bilstein coilovers that are compatible with the factory PASM electronic suspension. Meeting the road are a new set of lightweight forged wheels borrowed from the Porsche 911 GT3 variant that offer a wider footprint and greater traction with a proper set of tires.
Inside, the Porsche 911 Turbo S was outfitted with a new roll cage for safety along with new racing seats covered in alcantara for better grip.
