Sportec is headed for Geneva in a big way. The tuner will showcase the Sportec SPR1 M, a suspected hurricane of a car based on the Porsche "997" 911 Turbo model. This is a seriously exclusive car in that only 10 will ever be produced. Sportec has rebuilt the car from the ground up using mainly carbon fiber thus ensuring an exceptional power-to-weight ratio.

The power figure for the T80 M engine package itself is 858hp (631kW) and maximum torque is 880Nm. No performance figures are available yet but judging from the previous version of the car, the SPR1, fans are in for a real treat. The SPR1 made just over 800hp (588kW) and covered the 0 - 100km/h dash in 3 seconds, 0 - 200km/h in 8.6 seconds and 0 - 300km/h in 18.9 seconds. The SPR1 M is even more powerful and very light. Therefore it should comfortably break the 3 second mark on that sprint as well as the other figures.

Not content with this type of armoury Sportec is to introduce several other cars at Geneva. These include the Audi RS 6-based Sportec RS700 and the Sportec SP750 which is based on the 997 GT2 and packs a 750hp (552KW), 850Nm kit.

Lastly Sportec will demonstrate their will to not only provide powerful cars but to be kinder to the environment by unveiling the SP550 mc (mean+clean) that uses a 3.6-litre biturbo engine with gas injection.

Stay tuned, full details coming in a few days.
0 - 62mph: 3s
0 - 124mph: 8.6s
0 - 186mph: 18.9s

Top Speed: 238mph

I know I probably shouldn't, but I feel like I'm getting tired of Porsche design. I feel like it's a constantly regurgitated cycle of the same design, despite the differences in power, weight, suspension design, etc. I can truly appreciate the engineering aspect of the vehicles for sure, especially in the hands of a quality tuner, but there's a certain repetitive nature about the 99x model Porsche's that just bothers me. I want to like Porsche, but I feel like it's getting harder and harder with each "new" model coming out. Yes, there is definitely a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" type theory going on that certainly gets results, but to me personally, I'd rather take something a little more novel at this point. /rant.

With that said, love the power, the exterior is clean( and functional; that's another plus), the brakes are great. However, the wheels look slightly...off. Not sure what it is. Maybe the lip is too deep for my liking. Not sure. Anywho, good look variant of the same tried and true 997 platform.

I respect it's performance but it is the same old thing by a different tuner. It is becoming paint by number with the 911.
