The most expensive new Porsche 911 money can buy these days would have to be the Turbo S Cabriolet kicking off at a hefty $200,400 in United States. The aftermarket specialist at Wimmer RS were not completely satisfied with the 580 horsepower (427 kilowatts) delivered by the biturbo 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine mounted at the back and decided to invest almost $55,000 to bump its output to a massive 840 hp (626 kW).
To extract an additional 260 hp (194 kW), Wimmer installed a pair of its own turbochargers and a custom intercooler. Not only that, but the tuners also fitted the 911 with a Saeco tube kit and a custom high-pressure pump, while a BMC high-flow filter and a new stainless steel exhaust system were added as well.
With all the upgrades in place, the six-cylinder engine now generates a mountain-moving 634 pound-feet (860 Newton-meters) of torque. In case you were wondering, that’s an extra 118 lb-ft (160 Nm) over the regular model.
Thanks to the added oomph, Wimmer says its heavily modified Nine Eleven will run from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) in only 2.6 seconds, thus making it 0.4s faster than a stock 911 Turbo S Cabriolet fitted with the Sport Chrono package. The 0-124 mph (0-200 kph) sprint will take a mere 8.4 seconds, or a full two seconds less than the regular version. Hit the track or an unrestricted portion of the Autobahn and the tuner says it will do 0-186 mph (0-300 kph) in 17.9 seconds. There’s no word about top speed, but most likely it has increased a little bit over the standard 205 mph (330 kph).
In order to cope with the extra power of the engine, Wimmer had to modify the PDK transmission and it now has almost $6,700 worth of upgrades. Rounding off the list of changes is KW’s Clubsport suspension priced at $6,100.
Wearing an orange vinyl wrap as bright as the sun, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet modified by Wimmer is available as is for a cool $324,000 (€310,000).
