Porsche Turbo Modified by Sportec

Here is a short article on a new Porsche Turbo Modified by Sportec it is, IMHO, the best car for everyday driving and it kills almost anything on the track. A Masterpiece from Porsche.

I run a Valentine One radar detector for photo traps and radar protection. The Valentine 1 provides superb Euro radar detection. Given I am a passionate car freak, here is a short review of my previous cars: MB E55 AMG – very nice but too much power on back wheels to go really fast. Wheels spin all the time. Audi RS4 bi-turbo – a classic favorite Audi RS6 plus – unbelievable performance for the size. However, it is still a station wagon… BMW M6 V10 – a piece of junk, the car’s electronics do everything for you and you feel handicapped driving the dumb 16-program gear box. Porsche 993 Turbo Sportec – nice but too old now and does not handle so well on the track Porsche 964 RSR – a track beast but a little dangerous at very high speeds around the Nürburgring. Porsche 996 Turbo Sportec 550Hp – my second favorite car, after my 997 Turbo Inferno Aston Martin DB7 Vantage V12 – an exceptional GT car, the only car I shall miss for a long time. In ice blue, my wife almost killed me when I sold it.

The other relevant cars I have driven: Aston Martin Vantage – a nice GT/Sports car combination, excellent handling but lacks at least 100Hp Ferrari Maranello 575 – a huge boat that lacks handling feeling. Aside from the look it is a disappointment. Ferrari F430 – a very nice beast, I would in fact buy one tomorrow if I could have an additional car in my garage. Pagani Zonda S7.3 – the most amazing drive of my life, all about sensations, emotions, with its unbelievable V12 AMG of over 620Hp. New Audi RS4 – excellent chassis but disappointing engine compared to the RS4 V6 Bi-Turbo. The car I want to drive: The new Ford GT which is the most stunning looking sports car in the world for me. Conclusion: In my view and for the price, there is nothing that comes close to my 997 Turbo Inferno today. This is a problem because I will have to keep it for the foreseeable future!!! 575 Hp – 840 Nm 0-62 mph in 3.3->3.5 sec 0-300km/h in 24->26 sec Depending on road and weather conditions, especially air temperature and humidity level. Cold and humid air significantly improves the performance. Check out the power / torque curves to the right. (before/after). This beast is quicker than a reasonably modified Porsche 996 GT2 on the track. But more importantly, it is much safer. Such an incredible car. Pagani Zonda and Ferrari Enzo owners drove my car a few week ago and they say it pushes as hard as either the Zonda 7.3S or the Enzo. The Carrera GT is left behind… Outstanding. I drove 10’000km with it since September and cannot get enough of it, even with the current winter tires, which I assume are not going to last too long. Cheers, “Dr. Eat My Exhaust” from Europe. Get the Valentine1 for good radar detection.

Porsche 997 Turbo Inferno, Valentine One radar detector is used for front radar detection. Great product for European use to detect the photo speed traps and various radar guns used.
Side View
Nürburgring: coming out of a nice curve at the Nordschleife. Look at the rubber mark behind the right-rear wheel.
575 Hp – 840 Nm …. look at the power / torque curves above. (before/after) Quicker than a 996 GT2 on the track.
Valentine One Radar Detector can be set up under the rear view mirror, or can be ordered as a V1 Remote, hidden behind the grille, or up on the ski rack. The Valentine 1 radar detector can be programmed for European operation or USA/Canada operation.
