The British tuners at APS Sportec have recently released all the details related to their newest project. It is a performance upgrade package which will be offered for the facelifted version of the 997 Turbo. The standard car has achieved 493bhp from its 3.8-liter six-cylinder boxer engine, which is now climbed up to 580bhp. In this, the torque of the car has been rated at 6500 rpm, whereas, the peak torque hits 590 lb.ft at 3500 rpm.
The conversion of Sportec SP580 highlights a stainless steel sports exhaust system, along with high flow catalytic converters and two 70mm twin tailpipes. The Sportec 997 Turbo sports exhaust system includes duo sound throttles. This allows the owner to define and accordingly switch the exhaust note of the car immediately by using a supplied remote controller. Along with this, the standard Porsche air filter has been replaced by a Sportec high flow panel element. In the replacement line, the ECU settings for fuelling, ignition, and the turbo boost parameters have been rearranged by a bespoke Sportec remap.
Nevertheless, there is no confirmation related to the changes, as the official data is yet to be released. Still, one thing is confirmed that the car can make 0-100 km/h within just 3.1 seconds, with a top speed of nearly 197 mph. The Sportec 580 upgrade package is actually appropriate for the six-speed manual variants and the PDK variants that were incorporated since November 2009 on Porsche 997 Turbo. However, the package is available now from the Brackley’s only UK concession APS and will be priced at £9400.
So get ready to have a full range of exclusive Sportec parts for the facelifted Porsche 997. This will include forged alloy wheels, braking and suspension upgrades, and also the cosmetic enhancements, which is now available in the market.
