I purchased the Porsche 996 Turbo in October 2008 and after 3 months I got the tuning bug which I wasn’t planning to do with this car as it was my new daily driver.
But I guess I just can’t stop myself tuning my new cars.
Once all the parts were fitted the Porsche was truly a different animal, going from a stock 420bhp to a healthy 600bhp with over 600lbft of torque. And yet still a perfect daily driver just a lot quicker.
Towards the end of 2010 we had the opportunity to enter a round of the uk series Time Attack, and with the Subaru yet to be completed we thought why not give the Porsche ago. I was pleasantly surprised how well the Porsche handled and stopped considering everything is standard apart from a power increase.
The car performed faultlessly throughout the day as you would expect from a Porsche and held its own with the out and out race cars in the series.
I managed a 1m18sec lap at Snetterton with brake fade and a full weight car, not bad going for my first time out on track in a Porsche.
