Delivering more than 900 horsepower in a linear, controlled, and reliable fashion is what Switzer Performance and its E911 Porsche flex-fuel package of performance upgrades does- and it's easy, sometimes, to get lost in the numbers. 950 peak HP. Over 800 lb-ft. of torque. Less than five seconds from 60-130 MPH. A quarter mile in about 9 seconds at nearly 150 miles per hour. 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 we'll identify as "AT", who bought the 2007 Porsche Turbo with just 1100 miles on the odometer to replace his aging BMW M3. He wanted something with "a little more power" … and he certainly got that!

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.

AT's E911 Porsche 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.

AT plans to campaign his new Switzer E911 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. Stay tuned for more!

Very nicely done.

Rumor has it that "AT" won the first straight line event he entered in his Switzer E911. Taking down some "heavy hitting" GT-R's and domestics.

Looks like he is the first customer of the season to add to the Switzer trophy case.

He is a great guy and I am very happy for him. Congrats to AT and Switzer on a great build!

A buddy of mine has a 996 turbo and he said the stock rods are able to support up to 800tq.

Isn't that a lot of torque for the stock rods? 640wtq...
The stock rods can handle quite a bit in the 996TT and 997TT engines, for instance our Sledgehammer development car still has the stock engine record of 4.25s 60-130, that was set in 2009, and it's still running on that same engine to this day. Proper tuning prevents most engine failures from occurring.

Oh really
. Do you make a similar kit for the 996?

Very nice
