Pics and details of the new Sportec 997 Turbo SP580, which hits 100 km/h in 3.2s. Find out more inside.
The new Sportec 997 Turbo SP580 tuning kit is now available for the Porsche 997.
Engineers from Sportec have boosted power from 500 PS (368 kW / 493 hp) to 580 PS (572 hp / 427 kW).
If those numbers sound familiar, it is because the Swiss tuning firm developed a package that provided the same horsepower on the last SP580 (hence, the model name). However, the torque rating is reduced on this model, but is the same as the standard Porsche 997 turbo facelift.
Now, the new model sprints to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, and to 200 km/h in 10.3 seconds. Top speed on the car is 323 km/h. The sprint times are faster than the old SP580, but the previous model topped out at 338 km/h (210 mph).
New forged 20-inch wheels have been developed for the car. However, the aero kit with front spoiler, big rear wing, and side skirts seems to be carried over from the pre-facelift kit. You can read more about the kit in the press release below.
