The Porsche 911 is one of the all-time best drivers cars you can buy. In fact, it might even be the best. It is no stranger to change though, over the years the 911 has undergone serious changes that have pleased a vast number of customers. Porsche has kept up with the times and the technological advancements. This particular Porsche has a secret weapon up it's sleeve too. A performance modification that has also advanced over the years. Read on to find out what that modification is, and how it works with this stunning Porsche 911 Carrera S.
What is it like to drive?
It's a Porsche, so it's brilliant. It handles perfectly and has loads of power available. This car handles 0-60 MPH in 4.4 seconds, so it's very quick. You also feel planted to the road with seemingly unlimited levels of grip. Huge 305/30/20 tyres sit on the rear, while 245/35/20's are up front. So, it's got straight line speed, it's got incredible cornering ability, and it's well built and engineered. What's it missing? More power of course.
Tuning options for the Porsche 911
There are several ways to make a car faster. You can make it lighter, but this 911 is already light, unless you want to take out the comforting features like the radio and air conditioning. You can modify the engine or components, but we figure Porsche haven't used parts from a 2003 Beetle for this flat 6 masterpiece. So, that's probably not a great choice. Another way to make this Porsche 911 faster would be to remap the ECU. The issue is, when you come to resell your prized Porsche, the desirability drops. The vast majority of people are going to want to buy a standard vehicle. An ECU remap on this Porsche 911, means it's not standard. So, how can you get more power from your Porsche 911, while keeping it standard when you sell it on. Surely that is impossible right?
Putting more power in the Porsche
The most logical performance modification for this Porsche is a TDI-Tuning Box. The reason? When you come to sell the car, you can take the chip tuning box off and revert the car back to standard. No trace is left behind once it has been physically removed. You can enjoy up to 40% increased power, without having to tamper with the vehicle ECU. The TDI-Tuning Box on this Porsche 911 optimises the boost pressure engine sensors. This creates more power that makes an already fast car, even faster. The difference is crazy! The extra power doesn't go to waste either. Thanks to hundreds of years of Porsche development, the TDI-Tuning Box can create usable power that you can put down onto the road. The clever power management and insane tyres means no power is wasted.
Tuning cars with locked ECU systems
Some newer cars now come with a locked-out ECU. This means it cannot be remapped even if you wanted too. The TDI-Tuning Box can be used even when the ECU is locked out. This is because the TDI-Tuning Box doesn’t alter the ECU parameters or settings. It optimises sensor readings before they even get to the ECU. This makes it a modification that everybody can install with ease. This Porsche doesn’t have a locked ECU, but the owner did want a TDI-Tuning Box so that this pristine Porsche can be reverted back to standard when reselling the vehicle. The owner of this Porsche had his tuning box on a Range Rover 3.0 Diesel before, after a short reprogramming the same box was able to fix straight onto this beautiful Porsche 911. A TDI-Tuning Box comes with complete peace of mind. A 5 year product warranty, reprogrammable to a different car, and traceless once removed. It really does tick all the boxes.
