Switzer has unveiled its latest project: a 950-horsepower Porsche 911 capable
of running a quarter mile in 9 seconds at 150 mph.
More impressive numbers: over 800 lb-ft. of torque, less than five seconds from 60-130 mph, 0-60 in less time than it takes most people to read this sentence.
Power and speed of that magnitude can be a little overwhelming, but any Switzer Performance E911 Porsche Turbo is going to be a similar sort of rocket ship. What they won't all be, however, is as good-looking as the black-on-black machine you see here.
The car belongs to a customer codenamed "AT", who bought the 2007 Porsche Turbo with just 1,100 miles on the odometer to replace his aging BMW M3, wanting a little more power. He got plenty.
Newly-developed Switzer Performance intercoolers flow cold air to a pair of Switzer-specific turbocharges derived from Switzer's 1000 hp Sledgehammer project car. Those big turbos breathe through Switzer's high-flow intake plumbing and exhale through Switzer's stainless-steel motorsports-style headers and high-flow exhaust system, ensuring that the E911 is able to breathe freely at triple-digit speeds. The car also uses the latest version of Switzer's flex-fuel injection system, which uses an advanced stand-alone EMS to deliver a seamless transition between pump gas and E85 ethanol that doesn't require a customer to sort through multiple engine maps and risk getting it wrong.
The Porsche 911 by Switzer puts its power to the ground through a set of Toyo R888 tires wrapped around 19' HRE 597 Rs, with weight transfer optimized in part by the Porsche's rear-engine layout and helped along a bit further with the use of H&R lowering springs.
The customer plans to campaign his Switzer-tuned 911 Porsche in a number of airstrip/standing mile events this year. Judging from the past performances of other Switzer Porsches in Texas and Moscow, we expect great things.
