US Tuner Presents 1000 HP Porsche

We all know that Porsche 911 is a pretty sporty car with engine performance that can easily compete with any other vehicle in the same class. But what if this popular model that develops around 530 horsepower in GT2 version is upgraded to more than 1000 horsepower? Well, Oberlin,Ohio-based tuner Switzer Performance Innovations has just announced a new tuning package called Sledgehammer that can increase the overall power of the 911 Porsche to over 1000 hp.

So, it may seem like Bugatti Veyron has a new challenger if we have a look on the technical specifications list provided by the manufacturer, with 0 to 60 mph acceleration done in about 2.5 seconds, 60 to 130 mph in 5 seconds and a maximum speed rated at almost 195 (313 km/h) mph, according to a statement issued by the company.

“Named after candid comment from an SPI tech, the Sledgehammer is a bolt-on performance package for 997 twin-turbo Porsches
that delivers over 850 all-wheel horsepower on race fuel,” SPI said in the statement. This means the performance package is only compatible with 911 Turbo and GT2 variants, which both feature twin-turbo engines. It can go over 1000 hp at the crank, the tuner praised engine performance.

“We have always prided ourselves on attention to detail and delivering exactly what we promise to our customers. We have a saying around here: performance, not excuses. So during the original Sledgehammer build we looked at every part of the system, constantly metering and testing every component, on our in-house chassis dyno,” Tym Switzer, founder of SPI, said.

Other feature highlights of the newly-released package includes SPI headers and sport exhaust, SPI Monster intercooler package and SPI-massaged GT30R turbos. The package is only available through SPI and costs approximately $50,000.
