The F1-Powered Porsche 911 Will Surely Set Your Heart Racing
Lanzante, renowned for their conversion of McLaren F1 and P1 GTRs into road-legal vehicles, is currently in the process of creating 11 models of F1-Powered Porsche 911s. Each of these 930 TAG Turbo models brought to life by Lanzante is propelled by a 1.5-liter V6 TAG Turbo engine that Porsche originally manufactured for McLaren’s Formula 1 use in the 1980s.
In order to achieve road legality, Lanzante has reduced the engine’s horsepower from 750 to approximately 500 and decreased the torque to 310 lb-ft. Nevertheless, the soundtrack produced by this turbocharged V6 engine in a lightweight Porsche 930, featuring improved suspension and enhanced aerodynamics, is a thrilling display of remarkable technology.
