It’s not only Porsche itself that is celebrating the 911’s 50th anniversary this year, as a number of tuners have also jumped in on the festive bandwagon. Germany’s Cam-Shaft says it’s honoring the nameplate’s golden anniversary with the release of a special package for the 997-generation (built from 2005 through 2011) 911 Turbo.
The highlight, as you can see for yourself in these pictures, is a new retro-style, Gulf Oil foil wrap that will cost you €2,800 (US$3,600) in Germany, plus another €700 (US$900) if you want the full treatment covering the door-sills and visible edges around the boot, hood etc.
In the performance department, Cam-Shaft has borrowed Dortmund tuner 9ff’s power package that introduces a new sports exhaust system, a larger intercooler, special air-filter, and modified electronics to push output of the 3.6-liter turbo boxer engine from 473hp (480PS) and 620Nm (457 lb·ft) of torque, to 641hp (650PS) and 800Nm (590 lb-ft) respectively.
As a result, 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) now comes in 3.8 seconds, 100 to 200 km/h (62mph-124mph) in 6.0 seconds and 100 to 300 km/h (62mph-186mph) in 20.3 seconds.
A height adjustable suspension system from Bilstein and a new set of OZ-Ultralegera lightweight rims, along with the option of upgraded bucket seats, complete Cam-Shaft’s offerings for the 997 Turbo.
