Switzer Performance gets 800hp from Porsche 997 (+video)

Switzer P800 fq

The Porshce 997 Turbo is just too slow, when was 480 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque rotating all four wheels ever going to be enough. Well aware of this, Porsche came out with the more powerful GT2. However, 530 horsepower still isn’t going to cut it. You need the traction of AWD, and a lot more power.

Enter the Switzer Perfomance P800 997. Here’s its vitals: 800 hp, 0-100kph in less than three seconds and the standing quarter-mile completed in just over ten seconds. Now that’s proper fast, and the P800’s AWD, too.

So where does an extra 320 hp just appear from? Custom GT30 turbochargers, massive Switzer intercoolers, electronic boost control, upgraded headers and exhaust, plus a carbon clutch pack. It looks sharp in yellow too.

Check out the images of the P800 997 in the gallery and a short video clip below.
