Porsche 9ff GT9-R: Now with More Speed


Porsche 9ff GT9-R - Side View

Remember the 9ff GT9?  It’s the fastest car ever built by a tuner.  Sure… SSC built the Aero, a car that is 1-2 MPH faster, but they built that car from the ground up. 9ff’s are loosely based off the 911 chassis. And while there’ s not much Stuttgart left in their mad creations, at least they had a starting point.

For those of you with fuzzy memories, here’s what all the fuss was about:

  • 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine
  • 973 horsepower, 710 lb-ft of torque
  • Curb Weight: 3047 pounds
  • 243 HP/liter
  • 3.13 Pounds/Horsepower
  • 0-100 km/h: 3.4 seconds
  • 0-200 km/h: 8.2 seconds
  • 0-300 km/h: 16.4 seconds
  • Top Speed: 409 km/h, or 254.77 MPH
  • Cost: €498,000, which is about $730,000

It’s now been over a year since 9ff released the details of the GT9.  Upon review of the project, 9ff saw a few things they could improve upon.  1st, they wanted to make it faster.  2nd, they wanted to make it uglier.  They have succeeded in both, here are the official details of the 9ff GT9-R.

  • 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine
  • 1120 Horsepower
  • Curb Weight: 3047 pounds
  • 280 HP/liter
  • 2.72 Pounds/Horsepower
  • 0-100 km/h: 2.9 seconds
  • 0-200 km/h: 7.4 seconds
  • 0-300 km/h: 15.8 seconds
  • Top Speed: 414 km/h, or 257 MPH
  • Cost: Unknown

These stats imply that the GT9-R is much faster than it’s predecessor, and it should reach it’s top speed at a much faster rate.  For reference, it takes the Veyron 17 seconds to reach 300 km/h, where it only takes the GT9-R 15.8 ticks.  At that speed, 1.2 seconds is a huge difference!  You’re talking a football field or more of distance between the two. So yes, they’ve made it much more powerful than the previous model.  Since they are only producing 20 editions of the GT9-R, it’s safe to say that you’ll probably never see this car in real life.  And that might prove to be a good thing; while I was never fond of how the original GT9 looked, I think the R version looks even fuglier…at least they ditched the plywood rear fascia… take a look at the gallery and let me know what you think.  Official press release below.
