From tons of press photos to tech illustrations that reveal just how cool the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo (S) is under the skin, we've seen the facelifted incarnation of the uber-Neunelfer in depth. Nevertheless, we're always up for a game of supercar striptease, which is why we're bringing you these images.
We get to act like having X-Ray vision in relationship to high octane machines with the help of two main scenarios. The first involves crashes and, thankfully, the 991.2 Turbo hasn't reached that point yet.

As for the second, this has to do with these machines landing in tuning shops that remove the covers to perform their work. Case in point, the 911 Turbo S we have here.This Zuffenahusen machine didn't even aim to catch attention since it's dressed in Agate Grey Metallic, a hue that's as understated as the styling of the 911 itself.

Then there's the source of the images. The pics come from Edo Karabegovic. Yes, The Edo Karabegovic who owns German tuner Edo Competition. The 580 hp 911 visited the aftermarket developer's Ahlen shop earlier this week. In the process, the front and rear aprons, as well as the centerlock wheels were removed.

When asked about the purpose of the stripping, Edo said it all has to do with cleaning and polishing, for now. However, given the tuner's obsession with Zuffenhausen goodies, we don't expect we'll have to wait too much for a project to show up. Until that happens, we're inviting you to check out the delicious details of the Turbo S' engine compartment.

We'll remind you the Turbo S has gained 20 hp, but this was obviously far from an ECU job on Porsche's side. Instead, the carmaker installed new turbochargers, with larger compressor wheels. And you don't need to be an engineer to figure out what this means for the aftermarket side of the industry.
