Brabus’ First Official Porsche Project is a Bananas 820hp 911 Turbo S

911 Turbo S Cabriolet from Madmen Brabus

German tuner Brabus is known for their outlandish Mercedes-based projects, but today we found out that they have finally tried their hand at Porsche products. First up is the PowerXtra P38S-820 and it has a whopping 809 hp and plenty-crazy 700 lb-ft of torque. Thank upgraded Brabus turbochargers and recalibrated ECU tuning for the increase in power. The PowerXtra P38S-820 also gets a Brabus INCONEL exhaust for more flow and a unique sound. The performance mods result in a 0-60 time of 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph. That’s slightly quicker than the standard 640 hp Porsche 911 Turbo S.

For those who don’t want to go overboard, Brabus will also offer a less-powerful version which has 711 hp and is known as the Brabus PowerXtra PS38S-720. Unlike the 820, this version just gets an ECU update but still offers a nice boost over the stock 640 hp. The INCONEL exhaust is also available though not standard on the 720.

In terms of design changes to the interior and exterior of the standard 911 Cabriolet, they’re more of an evolution rather than a revolution. Small subtle carbon fiber flaps extend from a front spoiler and offer functional aerodynamic enhancement. On the rear of the car, a matching carbon fiber diffuser encapsulates the exhaust system and a new spoiler is set higher than the stock unit. Brabus also offers different wheels and tires for buyers to choose from.

Inside the cabin, you’ll see black quilted leather with red piping and stitching. And to put that more clearly, it’s everywhere from the seats to the door cards, to the floor mats. That same red and black treatment finds its way onto the hard surfaces too and frankly, it looks pretty slick. This is the type of customized 911 that won’t necessarily turn the heads of normal folks but Porsche fans will know that it’s not normal.
