Porsche may have heavy electric guns in its catalog with the Taycan models, but their fastest model remains the 911 Turbo S. With 650 hp and 800 Nm from its 3.8-liter boxer engine, it sprints to 100 km/h in 2, 7 seconds. “Das muss noch schneller können,” the tuners of Brabus must have babbled to each other, and so it happened.
Top sprinter or show animal?
This is their answer, and it comes in the form of the P38S-820 upgrade. With that mouthful programmed into the engine, your 911 Turbo S will hit 100 km/h after just 2.5 seconds, so another two tenths faster than original. The Brabus-Porsche does this thanks to a power of — as the name suggests — 820 hp and a torque of no less than 950 Nm. This one tune is not to be confused with the P38S-720 package that Brabus also offers, because that entry-level version gives you Turbo S only 720 hp and 900 Nm. However, that too is still enough to narrowly beat the standard Porsche with a 0-to-100 time of 2.6 seconds.
If you think that’s a meager gain compared to the already pretty smooth original, you can also simply choose the Brabus upgrades for their external adjustments. For example, the lower bumper with its big pout is supposed to counteract the tendency of the front axle to lift and the car is sucked even tighter against the tarmac thanks to a larger rear diffuser — or is that just the effect of the 2.5 centimeters lowered suspension? The sound game is also provided by a set of 10 centimeters wide Inconel exhausts, and you can choose from specific Brabus rims of 21 or 22 inches. The fact that this Brabus is not a Mercedes does not make it any less great show animal.
