675 HP Porsche 911 Turbo S Hits 214 MPH (344 KM/H) in German Autobahn Blitz

With Porsche releasing one Neunelfer special after another this year, the 911 Turbo (S) might be in need of some extra spotlights. Well, we're here to deliver just that, albeit using a 991.2 incarnation of the rear-engined coupe that has been taken down the aftermarket path.

To be more precise, the rear-engined supercar we're looking at has been given a respectable tech massage be Edo Competition. The German aftermarket specialist has plenty of Zuffenhausen machine experience, having played with machines such as the 918 Spyder, so you can expect smashing things to happen.

Did we say "smashing"? We meant "Autobahn-smashing" and that's because we want to show you this Turbo S performing a maximum velocity run on the German highway.

As we mentioned in the title above, the Neunelfer managed to climb all the way to 344 km/h (make that 215 mph). Nevertheless, that's the GPS-recorded value, which the digital speedo of the machine showed 363 km/h (225 mph). And yes, the analog speedometer was overwhelmed, since the instrument tops out at 350 km/h.

It's worth noting that this 991.2-generation Turbo S didn't need that much tuning attention in its quest for extreme velocity. To be more precise, the twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six occupying the posterior of the Porscha has been pushed from 580 to 675 hp, while the maximum torque now sits at 850 Nm. We'll remind you that the overboost feature of the standard car, if we may call this Porscha so, allows it to deliver 750 Nm of twist.

Oh, and it seems that a lightweight battery, such as those found on track cars, is also on the menu.You might want to play the mute game for this piece of footage
Alas, the clip showcasing the Autobahn sprinting involves the kind of music that certainly won't suit everybody's taste, but the delicious visual side of the clip will help you get over such an issue.
