Click above to watch the 9ff TR 1000 reach 391.7 km/h at the Papenburg test track after the jump

There aren't too many places you can cruise at over 200 mph in relative safety, but the Papenburg test track is one of them. The high speed oval located in Northern Germany is a pavement playground for supercars in search of straight line speed, and various manufacturers and tuners regularly use the track to see just how fast their projects can go.

Take, for instance, 9ff. The Porsche super-tuner previously used Papenburg to reach v-max in its GT9 supercar, and they recently brought out a modified 911 Turbo dubbed the TR 1000 for a high speed romp. While not quite as fast as the GT9 (409 km/h), the TR 1000 still reached an impressive 391.7 km/h -- just over 243 mph. Fortunately the cameras were rolling, giving us an opportunity to see just how quickly a 1000 horsepower Porsche can triple the legal speed limit. You can watch it for yourself after the jump.

        That video was exhilarating.

        I had the same expression as you when that car hit 391 kph.

        Jaw was on the floor.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I second that notion.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Zee cah iszee beutiful. Donz zoo agree?

      I bet these guys will glue on wings next to see if they can get a 911 to fly.
      I guess if you spend enough time and money on anything, you can make it do anything.

      Next, I think they should stick on really skinny low rolling resistance tires & wheel arch covers, and de-activate 4 of 6 pistons, and mod the chip - to see if they can get a 911 to go 500 KM on a liter of fuel!!!

      Or how about one turbocharger for each exhaust port! Or......how about glue the doors shut and make a 911 U-boat!!

        Lorenzo: You need to Google some combination of "pot," "kettle," and "black."

        use google search 9ff 3L Golf


        together with a german TV channel 9ff has shown how much consuption saving is left in modern mass production cars... as a example they turend a standart Golf into a car that reach 78mpg (3l/100km) in average...
        • 5 Years Ago
        sheesh, I am so insensitive......sorry man, warm milk is really over-rated.

      Remove side view mirrors
      Remove windshield wipers
      Cover rear wheels
      Use flat rims in the front instead of spoke wheels....

      And this should hit 410kmh
        • 5 Years Ago
        The point is for it to still remain a Porsche, and remain a beautiful street car... anyone can strap a jet-engine to a piece of aerodynamic metal and hit the speed of sound these days, it's doing it with a fully street legal chasis and not looking like storm trooper what makes it special

      Ignore this, sorry. (Password issues)

      The exhaust note and turbine whine of that motor is beautiful!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Sooo it's about 1000-2000 lbs less than a Veyron with similar horsepower and yet it can't go faster? Does it need AWD like the aforementioned bugatti to top 255mph? it's not like the veyron would have more aero advantage than the porsche.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I hit the top speed of my car (260km/h) and already at those speeds, well at least with my car, everything is vibrating like mad and a LOT of wind noise.

      Over a 100km/h faster? I'd die of fear!
        • 5 Years Ago
        What were you driving? Altima?

        Vibrating windows?? Howling sounds.

        Ohhhh its a corvette wtih a ripped off roof.

        Sorry had to stick it in there.

        I drove my Saab 9-5 Arc at 240kmh , obviously i had started from 100 and used the Sport regime , sure felt quick, but i had 2 more people with me, surprisingly it didn't feel like rattling or anything or unstable, the car's clearance is quite low and very nice drag coef.

      Wow, that car just rocks, did it so freakin easy.

      I would have shxt myself. There a part where he actually take his eyes off the road and turns his head.....

      I wanna see the fly by at 382 kmh.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Quadruple the speed limit maybe? That's pretty insane, given that it doesn't appear to benefit from a great number of aero enhancements.
      • 5 Years Ago
      The Porsche depicted in this article (or shall I say FARTicle) is exhaustivley ugly and I would rather drive a Tatinio Alspexin than this ugly road going contraption.
