For as long as there are 911s, Gemballa, RUF and so-on will be there to tune them. No doubt they’re itching to get their hands on the new 992, but in the meantime they’ve had to satiate themselves with making the outgoing 991 as fast as is humanly possible. Enter the Gemballa GTR 8XX EVO-R BITURBO – a 911 for people who want to travel criminally quickly 100 per cent of the time. 

First – bodywork. The 911 Turbo S-based GTR 8XX EVO-R is no sleeper – it has a carbon-fibre aero pack made up of a front lip, air guides, side sills, engine cover insert, wing and rear diffusor. Flared arches make for a car that’s 30mm wider at the front and 50mm wider at the rear than standard, giving space beneath the arches for bigger wheels and fatter, stickier tyres. 

But this thing is about power, really. A standard 991 Turbo S makes 580bhp and 516lb ft for a decidedly not-rubbish 0-62mph time of 2.7 seconds, 0-124mph in 9.3 seconds and a 208mph top speed. In the Gemballa, the 3.8-litre engine makes 818bp and 810lb ft. 0-62mph is therefore down to 2.38 seconds, and 0-124mph to an outrageous 7.5 seconds. The top speed is 230mph. 

No word on pricing or availability, but it’s going to be lots and few. One hell of a last hurrah for the 991…
