Who needs a GT2 RS when this is available?
When it comes to supercars, few do it better than the Porsche 911 Turbo. It's a car that defies the laws of science and delivers an absolute gut-punch of accelerative force well beyond its claimed power outputs and overall performance claims, especially in Turbo S guise. And, with a hybrid being rumored, we could see even faster acceleration times. But what if you're looking for more oomph right now? German tuner Manhart has the answer. Its TR 850 tuning package offers all the parts you need to boost the standard 991.2-generation 911 Turbo S's output to 850 hp, and with it comes insane performance figures that will make most standard supercars seem tame by comparison.
The stock 991.2 series Porsche 911 Turbo S delivers 572 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque (553 lb-ft in overboost), but the kit from Manhart increases those numbers to 850 horsepower, and 804 lb-ft of torque. That is an increase of 278 hp over stock. 0-62 mph takes only 2.4 seconds, 0-124 mph a brief 4.9 seconds, and it boasts a top speed in excess of 205 mph.
Manhart has accomplished this by upgrading the forced induction system with two upgraded VTG turbochargers, a larger intercooler, as well as an intake system. At the back, a custom exhaust system was fitted as well as downpipes from the turbo. The combination of parts has been made to work together seamlessly thanks to a custom tune.
Handling all that power is a set of upgraded clutch plates and a re-tuned PDK transmission, and putting it to the ground is a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S high-performance tires measuring 255/30ZR21 on the front and 325/25ZR21 on the rear. These tires are wrapped around a set of Levella LVL 1.1 multi-spoke alloy wheels measuring 9×21 and 12×21 inches, and the whole thing sits 1.2 inches lower thanks to some H&R springs. The cost of it all? A cool €27,186.89 - or $32,118 at current exchange rates.
Optionally, buyers can specify individually configurable braking systems, as well as bespoke interior and exterior styling packages to make the TR 850 look even more special.
