Manhart Tunes Porsche 911 Turbo To 670 HP, Performance Almost Matches The GT2 RS

Manhart have stepped out of their comfort zone, which includes tuning BMW, Audi and Mercedes cars, and presented their latest project, a Porsche 911 (991.2) Turbo.

When it arrived at their headquarters, the German sports car’s 3.8-liter six-banger produced 540 PS (532 hp / 397 kW) and 710 Nm (524 lb-ft) of torque that allow it to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds dead.

The tuner remapped the ECU and added a stainless steel exhaust system, which lifted the output to an impressive 680 PS (670 hp / 500 kW) and 870 Nm (642 lb-ft) of torque. That’s 20 PS (20 hp / 15 kW) less and a whopping 120 Nm (89 lb-ft) of torque more than the latest 911 GT2 RS.

Manhart doesn’t say whether the top speed of their 911 Turbo has increased over the stock 319 km/h (198 mph), but the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration has dropped to 2.9 seconds, one tenth slower than the GT2 RS.

The exterior has received the tuner’s signature look, namely a black finish with golden accents. Manhart’s 911 Turbo benefits from a new spoiler, too, in addition to a 30 mm (1.18 in) lowering kit and a set of aluminum wheels. Called Techart Formula IV, they measure 21 inches in size, have a five double-spoke pattern and a black finish.

    The thing is there’s plenty of reviews showing a stock 911 turbo S hitting 0 – 60 in 2.5 seconds, a fraction quicker than even the GT2. To 100 is where the GT2 eventually passes the turbo S. I’d like to think Manhart are being conservative with their numbers on this car.
