Swiss Porsche tuner, Sportec, has announced the release of its latest and greatest Porsche 911-Turbo-derived speed machine, the Sportec SPR1 FL. The car made its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

Some things you just know, simply by looking at them, that something serious is going on beneath the skin. The same can be said for the Sportec SPR1 FL; it looks like it’s doing triple the speed limit standing still.

Let’s just cut to the chase here. This thing outputs a neck-wrenching 631kW of power and 880Nm of torque. Sportec says it’ll do the 0-100km/h sprint in just 3.0 seconds and go on to a top speed of 380km/h… or about 90km/h faster than your average Boing 747 when it leaves the ground. It’s a very serious Porsche.

Sportec starts off with a standard Porsche 911 Turbo and makes a range of engine revisions, including the installation of some custom new parts. This includes the fitting of something called a ‘Smooth Flow’ intake manifold which is encrusted with two petrol injectors per intake runner/cylinder just to make sure the engine never goes thirsty.

Sportec also fits titanium conrods to make sure the standard 911 ones don’t shatter, as well as a new, larger intercooler, more turbo pressure, a new engine computer and a carbon fibre air intake. All of this is then sent through an uprated clutch and into the standard Porsche 911 Turbo all-wheel drive system.

Sportec also fits a bespoke Sportec widebody bodykit incorporating huge heat extracting vents in the rear bumper bar, a large rear wing to keep the car on the ground and some stealth, charcoal-coloured wheels.

The car replaces the company’s outgoing Sportec SPR1 R program. We’re not sure about the exterior colour scheme but it’s certainly one of the most brutal road-going 911s we’ve seen in a while.
