Porsche 911 Turbo S With 590 hp By Edo Competition
German tuning specialist Edo Competition individualizes the new Porsche Turbo making it faster, louder, cooler than the showroom car. This is the Edo 991 Turbo S. The highest functional quality, perfect craftsmanship and an accomplished design, it was with such advanced technological aspirations that Edo Competition opened the new 2014 model year for the Porsche 991 Turbo and the Turbo S models. In this context, with its exclusive tuning programme, the high-performance specialist from Ahlen, Germany, didn’t want to reinvent the turbo, but to completely individualize it with the personal character of its owner.
This individualization is completed in view of the exterior, the interior, the chassis and the engine, with the standard functional and optimized edo competition look. Edo Competition also offers a thoughtful optimization as regards the coordination and performance capability of the Porsche 991 Turbo models. Specially developed sports shocks provide for even more sporty driving pleasure. These sports shocks also enable a lowering of the chassis by up to 30 millimeters.
A completely redeveloped, one-piece and ultra-light forged wheel set from Edo competition combines functionality with sporty elegance. The ultra modern spokes design lends the 991 Turbo a perfect finish. The forged spoke wheel set is available for the front axle in the following design: 9.0 x 20 with 245/35R20, and for the rear axle: 11.5 x 20 ET45 with 305/30R20 with recommended Continental Force Contact or Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
All in all, the Edo Competition performance kit delivers 590bhp. The Edo Competition Porsche 991 Turbo S demonstrates its full capabilities with a maximum torque of 780 Nm, an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds (3.2 seconds with the showroom car), and a top speed of 327 km/h (318 km/h with the showroom car).
Its brute sound develops through the newly designed sports silencers with tri-alloy catalyst converters. Made completely from stainless steel, the sound guarantees a genuine motor racing feeling. Features such as the grille sets, the enameled brake calipers and the individualized interior all pay testament to an accomplished design for all drivers who consistently aspire to something special.
