2008 Porsche 911 Turbo S Convertible Custom
While it was plenty fast and good looking back then, it apparently 480 horsepower and 460 lb/ft torque just wasn't cutting it for the owner. He sent the Porsche to Lucas Auto Care, hoping they could coax a little more power from the flat six. After a lengthy modification laundry list was added to the Porsche including parts from FabSpeed, it was safe to say that coaxing a little extra power out was a severe understatement. FabSpeed sport headers and a complete custom quad-tip exhaust were added by Lucas Auto Care, along with a new ecu and tune to make use of the new power coming in. A carbon fiber intake and exhaust manifold was also tacked on for good measure, and the intercoolers were upgraded to compensate for the enormous amount of heat generated by the engine.
They overhauled the motor as well, replacing the twin turbos with much larger, variable turbine geometry units. GT Street front and rear bumpers along with custom side skirts were added, along with a GT2 style carbon trimmed spoiler and a GTR style aluminum hood provided by Wicked Motorworks. 2011 LED rear taillights were added to update the modern appearance of the car. As a finishing touch, a beautiful set of HRE 790R Forged wheels were added, as well as "Turbo S" decals on the rear decklid and sides. All the work was done to factory spec, and the fit and finish is perfect.
After all was said and done, this Porsche was now pushing out somewhere north of 680 horsepower and 650 lb/ft torque. 0-60 was estimated at 3.3 seconds, depending on how fast you can shift.
The new look of the GT Street body kit is much more agressive than that of the stock aesthetics, but still very tasteful in my opinion. It is fully functional, with both the front and rear scoops feeding the engine and brakes with cooling air. The GT2 spoiler also has built in scoops to force feed the engine at high speeds. The new engine note is amazing, sounding much louder and rougher, as if the 911 has caught a cold. It burbles and pops under deceleration, as if unhappy to be slowing down.
Normal driving in the Porsche is still suprisingly docile. If you don't dip into boost, the car is happy to tool around at slow speeds. The suspension is still very compliant, and while stiff, not overly so. Steering is dead-on, and the Porsche seems to be already moving in the intended direction the moment you think it. It truly is an every day super car, and I was beginning to grow fairly comfortable with it until I floored it in second gear. The larger turbos take a half second or so to spool, and then you are hit with acceleration so brutal that it feels as though you've been hit from behind by a cement truck. The sheer amount of speed triggers your involuntary fight or flight responses as both driver and passenger claw for something to hold on to for safety. The roar of the engine is completely obscured by the noise of the turbos hungrily sucking up air behind your right ear and force-feeding it into the engine. After a shift into third and speeds north of 100mph I shut it down, hands shaking from the sudden burst of adrenaline. This Porsche was a completely different animal than what it was before. It had become a monster.

From WikipediaThe Porsche 911 (pronounced as Nine Eleven, German: Neunelfer) is a luxury 2-door sports coupe / GT made by Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany. It has a distinctive design, rear-engined and with independent rear suspension, an evolution of the swing axle on the Porsche 356. The engine was also air-cooled until the introduction of the Type 996 in 1998. Since its introduction in 1963, it has undergone continuous development, though the basic concept has remained little changed.
