9ff builds world's fastest 911

Porsche-tuner 9ff has taken the 911 Turbo to new heights with its TR-1000—not to be confused with the T-1000, which was a killer liquid-metal shape-shifting android from the future—performance package. Supposedly built for a Greek millionaire’s 25-year-old girlfriend, the 9ff TR-1000 was able to muster a nearly inconceivable 243 mph around a test track in Papenburg, Germany. The flat-six engine utilizes larger turbochargers, improved intercoolers, a sports air filter, a revised ECU, and an enhanced exhaust system (as well as some other engine bits) to produce 1,000 hp and 767 lbs.-ft of torque. Acceleration is amazing, with zero-to-62 mph taking 3.2 seconds, 124 mph hitting 4.8 seconds after that, and 224 mph only requiring an additional 20.8 seconds.

To deal with the incredible forces that air can put on a car at that speed, 9ff has also developed a complete aerodynamic kit consisting of a front splitter, modified side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a rear wing. The suspension and brakes have also been upgraded.

The cost to own the world’s fastest 911 Turbo is approximately $186,000 more than the $132,000 price for the base car.

9ff GT9-R details and photos

We already told you that 9ff has its sights set on the title of world’s fastest production car, now more details have emerged on how it plans to do that. The 9ff GT9-R will utilize the same 4.0-liter six-cylinder Boxer engine as the GT9 but now making 133 more horsepower for a total of 1,120.  The performance stats are nothing short of amazing with zero-to-62 mph taking 2.9 seconds, 186 mph requiring 15.8 seconds, and a new top speed of 257 mph. The current record, held by the SSC Ultimate Aero TT, is at 256 mph. The GT9-R has two things to worry about:

-         The new-for-2009 SSC Ultimate Aero makes even more power—up from 1,183 to 1,287 hp—and has been aerodynamically enhanced for a higher top speed

-         Don’t rule out the Keatings TKR, which has already produced test runs of 260 mph

9ff plans to build only 20 GT9-R cars. 9ff also guarantees that with the amount of customization available no two cars will be the same. More pictures of the 9ff GT9-R here.

SSC claims 2009 Ultimate Aero will go 270mph

First, the Bugatti Veyron was named the world’s fastest production car. Then 9ff started work on its attempt, but was beat to the punch by Shelby SuperCar’s (SSC) Ultimate Aero. A couple months ago, we learned 9ff was not happy with its GT9’s second-place finish, and was going to vie for the title, again.

Now we have just learned that the 2009 SCC Ultimate Aero will make even more power, thus helping it retain its title, despite 9ff’s continued efforts.

Horsepower for the 2009 Ultimate Aero is up 104 from 1183 to 1287; courtesy of a new one-piece billet aluminum engine block. SSC also redesigned the car’s front fascia to help engine performance and the car’s aerodynamics. All combined, SSC estimates the car will now be able to go 270 mph.

9ff boosts Carrera GT to 900 hp

9ff displayed a 900-hp Carrera GT at the Essen Motor Show in Germany over the Thanksgiving weekend. The 9ff GTT900 gains the extra 295 horsepower via a pair of turbochargers that were slapped onto the engine, a revised exhaust, and new camshafts. The show car was painted red with carbon-fiber accents,  had cut-out front wheel wells, and a fixed rear wing.

9ff sets its crosshairs on the top speed record, again.

When 9ff decided to build the world’s fastest car, its crosshairs were on the Bugatti Veyron with its 253-mph top speed. Unfortunately for 9ff, the SSC Ultimate Aero came out of nowhere to take the reins of the title with an average top speed of 255 mph. Not one to just sit in second place, 9ff has decided to tinker with its 254-mph GT9 to hopefully blow the doors off the whole competition. Initial estimates have the 9ff GT9R producing 133 more horsepower and 64 more pounds per foot of torque for a total of  1120 hp and 774 lb-ft. The engine will be the same 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged F-6 engine used in the original car.  

Since only 20 GT9s were ever scheduled for delivery, expect the GT9R to be limited to very few units. Pricing will most likely be above the bargain-priced $785,677 MSRP for the GT9, which pales in comparison to the price paid for a new Veyron.
