If there’s a heaven on Earth, it’s probably this place – more than anything, this common phrase evokes ideas and images of nature untouched by humans. But for us gearheads, heaven on Earth has its own name and has nothing to do with nature. This is the Autobahn where certain sections have no speed limits. Yes, you can go as fast as you want and maybe you can and it’s totally legal.
As you may have guessed, we have a new video from German highways to share with you. Came from AutoTopNL and takes us aboard the Porsche 911 Turbo S (992) – and that’s not a stock example but a modified one. This particular car has a tuning package from LCE Performance, which is a German tuning shop that works mostly on German performance cars. There are a lot of them, as you all know, and the 911 Turbo S is one of the most popular and impressive.
In stock form, the new Turbo S has a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine, producing 641 horsepower (478 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters) of torque. This is an extraordinary figure for a sports car, giving the fastest 911 a sprint time of 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) in just 2.7 seconds.
This modified example is included lots of hardware upgrades on a stock car. These include unpainted downpipes, OPF removal, intake optimization, turbocharger upgrade, map optimization with the removal of the top speed limiter, and adjustments to gear shift timing and clutch pressure for the dual clutch transmission. Priced at around $32,000, this package brings the 3.8-liter factory output to 900 hp (662 kW) and 737 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque, shaving 0.2 seconds off its 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) acceleration time. . .
As you can see from the video at the top of this page, the car has no problem reaching speeds in excess of 155 mph (250 kph). This speed is far from the car’s limits – you can see the Turbo S traveling at around 204 mph (328 kph) at the end of the video. We’re sure it could do even more if the traffic allowed it.
