APS of Brackley is the importer of Swiss tuner Sportec in UK, and recently they’ve decided to come up with their own package for the new facelifted Porsche 911 Turbo using Sportec parts. On the outside not much work has been done, you only get forged alloy wheels, spoiler lip, side and rear skirts. But the car’s 493 bhp 6-cylinder 3.8 liter boxer engine has been tweaked more deeply.
With the Sportec ‘580’ conversion kit, the car gets a stainless steel sports exhaust system with high flow catalytic converters and two 70mm ‘twin’ tailpipes which also comes with a pair of sound throttles, which means the driver can change the noise of the car via a remote control inside the cabin.
Then the standard Porsche air filter is replaced by a Sportec high flow panel element, and the ECU is remapped with a new software developed by Sportec. The result of this changes are 580 bhp and peak torque hits 800 Nm (590 lb.ft).
Although they have not tested the performance yet, but they reckon it can do 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds with a top speed of 197 mph. This package can be fitted to both the six speed manual or PDK variants, and it also contains suspension and brake upgrades.
Pricing for APS Sportec package is £9400 including the installation.
