Edo Competition’s 585Hp Porsche 996 Turbo

Apparently the tuned Ford GT we posted a couple of days ago wasn’t the only new product of Edo Competition. The German tuner also offers a power upgrade and an aesthetic… degrade for the previous-generation Porsche 911 Turbo, codenamed 996. The wacko looking Turbo gets a new turbocharger and a BMC-airfilter along with a sport exhaust all of which help to boost power from the stock 420Hp to 585Hp. According to Edo Competition, 0-100 km/h (62mph) comes in 3,7 sec while maximum speed tops at 345 km/h (215 mph). Besides that, Edo also equips the 996 Turbo with a sport-brake-system, 18-inch rims and a sport clutch. -Full specs and image gallery after the jump
