Porsche fans should gather ’round, since Switzer Performance has unveiled their latest project, this gorgeous Porsche 911 Turbo. Sure, it’s actually the 2007 Porsche model, but that doesn’t matter much; just look at it! Created especially for a customer, this Porsche has been equipped with Switzer-specific turbochargers, new intercoolers and a high-flow air intake. Adding to that are a flex-fuel injection system and a stainless steel sports exhaust system.

The Porsche is now able to accelerate from 60-130 mph (96-209 km/h) in less than five seconds and run the quarter mile in about nine seconds at roughly 150 mph (241 km/h), since the mods have helped the engine to develop 900 bhp (671 kW) and more than 800 lb-ft (1083 Nm) of torque. Aside of the performance upgrades, the Porsche 911 Turbo has been fitted with H&R lowering springs and 19-inch HRE 597 Rs wheels with Toyo R888 tires.

It seems that the owner of the car plans on entering the car in a number of standing mile events this year; the company feels confident about the Porsche, and judging by those numbers, so do I. However, I’d never torture that ride to that degree; I’d rather keep it clean and enjoy its body-lines.
