Porsche 911 GT2 9ff BT2 – 850 HP Monster Dominates the Pack
Lately, it seems as if the horsepower wars have re-ignited in the world of Porsche, and the new battlefield is the 997 GT2. A few weeks back we reported on the release of the Wimmer RS Porsche 911 GT2 with 680 hp and just a couple of days ago, we discussed the latest tuning package from American Switzer Performance that pushes the GT2 up to 800 hp. Now, German tuner 9ff has trumped the pack once again with their 9ff BT2 (bi-turbo 2) offering which produces a ridiculous 850 hp. This makes their Porsche 911 GT2 good for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) run in 3 seconds flat, reaching 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 8.7 seconds and hitting 300 km/h (186 mph) in only 18.5 seconds. Top speed is rated at 386 km/h (240 mph). will even tweak things a bit more for you if you are interested in taking better acceleration over top-end speed by revising the gearing.
We are really digging the baby blue and orange Gulf livery and lightweight alloy wheels finished in black on the Porche 997 GT2. The small white circles filled in with 850 on the doors are a nice touch. Weight has been reduced through the use of carbon fiber body panels and a revised aerodynamics kit which provides an additional 70 kg of front downforce and 90 kg of rear downforce. Unfortunately, there is no information yet on how the engine modifications are actually performed. Let’s hope their solution is as elegant as Switzer’s bolt-on application. The total cost of the new 9ff BT2 is €285,000 ($400.955 USD). This is €95,500 ($134,368 USD) above the list price for the Porsche 911 GT2.
