This isn’t a Porsche anymore, it’s a Mansory now

For almost 50 years, the Porsche 911 Turbo as a classic Coupé (and for more than 20 years in the convertible version) has been regarded by sports car fans from all over the world as the epitome of the ultimate super sports car from Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen that is also fully suitable for everyday use. In addition, over all these years it has always represented the spearhead of the series models within the wide-ranging model range of the sports car icon 911. To complement the MANSORY soft kit program for the Porsche 911 Turbo & Turbo S, MANSORY is now presenting the “P9LM EVO 900”, a complete conversion for what Walter Röhrl calls “the best sports car in the world”. Initially, the “P9LM EVO 900” will be available exclusively as a Coupé, soon also as a Convertible.

As is customary with all complete conversions from MANSORY, only the finest ingredients of automotive refinement are used for the “P9LM EVO 900”: a body with lightweight components made of forged carbon, a significant increase in performance, suspension modifications, elegantly forged sports rims in new dimensions as well as various interior modifications made of the finest leather and carbon according to individual wishes. A horizontal gradient paint finish can also be ordered as part of a complete conversion for the 911 Turbo in a multitude of color combinations, but keep in mind only 10 units will be available, so if you would like to add this extreme version of a Porsche Turbo S you might want to hurry.

The “P9LM EVO 900” impresses from the front with its striking, significantly enlarged air intakes in the completely redesigned front apron made of carbon. This also allows the best possible flow of fresh air to the high-performance radiators installed directly behind the inlets on the left and right. Together with the side flaps, this also results in significantly improved downforce at the front axle of the vehicle. The daytime running lights have been repositioned due to the larger inlet openings and now harmoniously run around the air intakes in an arc in the upper part of the air intakes. The night vision and parking assist as well as the distance control system are not affected by these changes and all options can be ordered and installed unchanged.

The front bonnet of the “P9LM EVO 900” is completely finished in visible carbon and finds its visual continuation in the upper part of the apron (also finished in visible carbon). In the side view, striking sills show the unmistakable signature of MANSORY. Ventilation outlets for the wheel arches integrated into the top of the wings and body extensions on the wheel arches all around, also manufactured in visible carbon, complete the imposing appearance of the “P9LM EVO 900” from the side and bear witness to its origins in motorsport and the desire to optimize aerodynamics.

On request, the “P9LM EVO 900” can also be delivered without body extensions and then remains identical in width to the standard vehicle, but what’s the point, this will never be a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ anyway, so just go all out and get the widebody fitment to add to the aggression this limited edition from Mansory oozes from every angle. The air intakes in the rear side panel are framed by large air inlets made of visible carbon and, in conjunction with the additional intake scoop on the rear window (only on the Coupé), ensure that sufficient fresh air flows to the engine in every driving condition.

The newly developed diffuser is responsible for perfect guidance of the airflow underneath the vehicle and, for increased downforce on the rear axle, the large retractable rear spoiler, also completely new, in cooperation with the rear apron, which has also been redesigned and generates additional downforce. The rear apron as such is partly painted and partly finished in visible carbon. A completely new 3-pipe exhaust system (two exhaust pipes of the six-cylinder engine each flow into one tailpipe) rounds off the rearview harmoniously and extremely powerfully.

In addition to the extreme visual modifications to the “P9LM EVO 900”, the technology has also undergone subtle but very effective revisions to several components of the drive train. The result is that the factory original 3.8-liter biturbo six-cylinder boxer engine pumps out a total of 900 hp, hence the EVO 900 naming, while an even more impressive 1,050 Nm of torque on the crankshaft offers a massive increase over the standard numbers, being 650 hp and 800 Nm, not bad, but 900 hp really is something different.

The following components developed by MANSORY engineers are responsible for the performance enhancement: larger VTG turbochargers for each cylinder bank, 98 mm downpipes with exhaust flaps, a water-cooled intercooler with adapted fan control, a completely new high-performance exhaust system, a sports air filter and a complete reprogramming of the engine control unit (ECU). As expected, these performance data of the absolute top class culminate in driving performances that are also located at the absolute top in the sports car sector. The “P9LM EVO 900” reaches a top speed of 340 km/h and the sprint from zero to 100 km/h is completed in a short 2.5s.

These outstanding performance figures are brought safely to the road at all times thanks to the 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox, standard four-wheel drive, newly developed MANSORY suspension components, and a new set of wheels called the “FV.5C”, fitted with high-performance sports tires. These are single-piece, ultra-light forged rims in the dimensions 9.5 x 21 and 12 x 22 are fitted in combination with high-performance tires in the sizes 255/35 ZR21 (Front) and 335/25 ZR22 (rear) and offer both maximum performances in terms of lateral dynamics and the best possible track stability at high speeds. If you would opt for the ‘narrow body’ version of this kit you’ll still get the same wheel widths, but Mansory offers them in a different offset to still look perfect under the standard body.

As would be expected, you can go truly bespoke on the brake calipers when it comes to color, complete with Mansory logo, or probably whatever text or logo you prefer, and it doesn’t stop there, we all know black wheels, white wheel, bronze wheels … but on this Mansory, you can specify just about any hue to be applied to these custom wheels, for example, if the car is painted in iridescent two-tone color, the spokes of the rims can also be painted in the colors of the vehicle, providing a further visual highlight and subtly perfecting the overall impression of the vehicle in another detail.

The interior of the “P9LM EVO 900” is also completely redesigned and undergoes many individual upgrades. For example, the steering wheel is clad half in carbon and half in leather, and the lateral steering wheel spokes are painted to match the color of the leather. In the upper part, the carbon ring of the steering wheel shows a shift light and a digital display for speed and engine revs. The interior as such is completely reupholstered with high-quality, glove-soft leather down to the last corner.

The choice of color or multi-color, the type of pattern, the decorative stitching, and the carbon applications can be individually selected by the customer – as with every complete conversion from MANSORY. Carbon applications are preferably used wherever leather is not (or should not be) used. Thanks to the carbon, the interior is stylishly accentuated in detail and the sporty character of the car is perfectly emphasized. Specially made MANSORY floor mats, color-matched seat belts with MANSORY logos, and countless other precisely embroidered MANSORY logos elegantly round off the fully comprehensive refinement in the interior. Technical features such as seat heating and seat ventilation are, of course, also retained unchanged in the redesign of the interior.
