Porsche Purists Look Away From This Tesla Battery-Powered 911

  Porsche Purists Look Away From This Tesla Battery-Powered 911 <p>This supercharged super Carrera is electrifying.</p>The Porsche 911SC was one of the great classic air-cooled Porsches available—a real driver's car, this rear-engine go kart is still golden in the hearts of many purists. One conversion company, however, wants to the take the tired rumble of Porsche's aged boxer engine and give it new life with something electric. This is the 1979 Porsche 911 E.

SEMA is an interesting show, where mad scientists and engineers take cars and trucks and turn them into ungodly, brutal beasts on wheels. Vehicles like the Dodge Demon and Ford Mustang are right at home there.

If you fall into this category, we have good news – the latest package from Gemballa nixes the exterior bits and goes straight for the jugular by turning the already potent 911 Turbo and Turbo S into 828 -horsepower See Porsche 911 GT 2 RS Set RWD Nurburgring Record With 6:47.3 Lap.

The Gemballa GT concept debuts today at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. That's the aftermarket and performance car show. The GT takes a new Porsche 911 Turbo, not exactly a car you'd call slow, and makes it quicker. The 3.8L flat-six engine gets new intake manifolds with carbon plenums, reworked cylinder heads, new turbos, a new exhaust, and a new computer. It adds up to 828 hp, up from the standard car's 540. Peak torque jumps too, up to 702 lb-ft.

Singer and Williams collaborate on lightweight Porsche 911 engine

  Singer and Williams collaborate on lightweight Porsche 911 engine Anyone interested in another vintage Porsche 911 restored and modified by Singer Vehicle Design?Singer and Williams haven't yet released all the details on the project, but we know the engine will make 500 horsepower and boast a rev limit over 9,000 rpm. Carbon fiber, magnesium, titanium, and even Inconel parts combine to save what we're sure will be a great deal of weight over the stock Porsche bits and pieces. "Singer is delighted to be working with Williams Advanced Engineering and Hans Mezger to offer our clients a 'next level' of restoration and modification services for their Porsche 911s," said Rob Dickinson, Singer founder.

These complete cars based on the Porsche 911 /930 propelled GEMBALLA to world fame. The 600 hp GEMBALLA GTR 600-R, based on the Porsche 996 GT 3, snatches several important accolades.

Do you think the Porsche 911 Turbo is a capable driving tool? Well it is. Immensely capable, in fact. But in typical fashion, Gemballa is taking it even further. At the SEMA show this year, the German tuner is presenting the Gemballa GT Concept

The GT gets more than just more power, though. Gemballa has added massive fender flares, capable of hiding 325/25ZR21 rear tires, with 255-width rubber up front. Those flares are carbon-fibre, as is the new front skirt, rear bumper with diffuser, and the adjustable rear wing. It makes the car 30 mm wider up front and a massive 50 mm wider in the rear.

To help stop a car that can hit 100 km/h in 2.38 seconds, and 360 km/h flat-out, Gemballa adds carbon ceramic brakes. Six-piston callipers in the front, four in the rear.

The interior gets some upgrades as well. The GT has nicer leather, with Alcantara for the trim, seats, and roll bar.

Gemballa has been building big-power Porsches since 1981. The company says the show car is just a concept, not yet a production vehicle like their Panamera-based Mistrale, or last-generation 911-based Avalanche. But you can buy the GTR 8XX Evo-R BiTurbo engine. They'll sell you the brakes, interior, and bodywork too. So it's a concept, but they'll be happy to build you one. Bring your chequebook.
