Today’s 7 Days of Porsche Tuners features 9ff. I didn’t realize it until I started looking for more info on 9ff, but they have some pretty amazing accomplishments racked up. The biggest so far has to be the world record for “fastest streetlegal car in the world”. They accomplished this, for the second time, in October 2008.
The car to take them to these heights was the 9ff GT9 which is based on the 911 GT3. It hit a top speed of 409 km/h (254 mph)! Officially faster than the Bugatti Veyron. I can’t imagine testing the top speed of a car like that. It’d be a heck of ride, that’s for sure.
9ff was formed in 2001 in Dortmund, Germany to develop a complete tuning program for current Porsche models. They mention that 9ff is the new name for technically challenging individualization of Porsche vehicles. That certainly sounds impressive.
They offer everything from changing your outside mirrors to boosting performance upwards of 900 hp. Customizations are sold for almost every model including some customizations for the new Panamera and even a Bioethanol Kit for several Porsche models.
9ff customizations definitely seem to be more focused on performance than body kits. The changes seem to be more subtle and toned down visually possibly to fit a lower income demographic (us common workin’ folk). Even so, they’re wringing some serious power and numbers from an already souped up sports car.
For those of you interested in replicating the “fastest streetlegal car in the world” world record in your very own 9ff GT9, the price to play is $853,634. That’s assuming you can get your hands on one of the 20 built.
