Here at SXdrv, there are a few Porsche fans, it doesn’t really matter which model it is, as long as the bonnet bears that iconic Porsche crest, we’re interested in it. The 911 is the daddy of the series, and the copious amounts of variations in the models mean there’s a Porsche out there that will satisfy the needs of every kind of motoring fanatic there is. Back in 2007, the Porsche 911 was also the 997 series and it’s still one of the best-looking body shapes to leave Zuffenhausen, and all these years later has aged beautifully. This version of the iconic sports car was powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre flat 6 that had 368 kW of power and 650 Nm of torque on tap that was directed to all four wheels via a 6-speed auto transmission. It was not a slow car, capable of 3.7 second 0-100 km/h launch with a 312 km/h top speed. For some, that’s enough, but for those wanting more, there are various tuning options around the world to choose from. In the UK, one such company goes by the name of ES Motor. Any Porsche owners who have ever thought about making more power will likely have heard of the company unless they’re living under a rock. The company specialises in making Porsches faster, no matter which model or generation, they will have a solution. They offer up a hoist of performance packages that are named to indicate the power the work takes the car to. So the ES800 package will give you 800 horsepower, the ES1400 package will deliver 1,400 horsepower, and so on and so forth. Also, to make it even better, the promised power is to the wheels, not at the crank making it a true power upgrade.
Take a look at the YouTube video from a rather miff-looking UK where one of the country's maddest YouTube car guys gets behind the wheel of not only the fastest Porsche in the UK but also the fastest car in the country, period. The best part about this 2007 97 Porsche is that it's quite unassuming from the exterior, quite the sleeper, but at 2.9 bar boost it holds plenty speed records: THE *2056BHP GRIM REAPER* 911 TURBO ..WARNING SAVAGE PULLS | OFICIALLY GASSED - OG
