The new standard 911 breaks with tradition in a big way in dropping natural aspiration across the model line. The current model sees a displacement drop to 3 liters, but thanks to the additon of two turbochargers, there is an additional 20 hp for the Carrera S.
Turbochargers offer enormous flexibility in creating horsepower, so it will be worth watching what different tuners make available in the days and months to come. For now, the focus is on this program from mcchip-dkr, a German company focused on software optimization. They currently have two levels of optimization for the new 911 S. Level 1 is software only, and features a power bump to 475 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Level 2 also includes a new valve exhaust system by mcchip-dkr and sport cats by Capristo, which bumps power to 485 hp and 431 lb-ft of torque. The stock 911 S creates 420 hp and 369 lb-ft.
Other changes include KW springs and a new vinyl design in red, black, and white.

Mcchip-dkr is well-known for operating an ultramodern research and development center for chip tuning in Mechernich, located southwest of the cities Cologne and Bonn in Germany. The software adjustment and development will be accomplished on a high-performance SuperFlow AWD dynamometer type SF880.
Their extensively tested software optimizations are acknowledged nationwide as well as international.
The latest challenging object of the mcchip-dkr team around Managing Director Danny KUBASIK is a Porsche 991 Carrera S 3.0 with original 420 HP (= 309 kW) and 500 ft.-lbs. of torque. Effective immediately the new Porsche 911 will be delivered with a turbo instead of a aspirating engine! Mcchip-dkr offers with level 1 “only” the pure software for 2.499 Euro incl. VAT in order to gain 475 HP (= 349 kW) respectively 570 ft.-lbs. of torque. With level 2 for 8.349 Euro incl. VAT includes the software and a mcchip-dkr valve exhaust system with sport catalytic's “made by Capristo”. Installation included.
If choosing level 2, a 485 HP (= 357 kW) respectively 585 ft.-lbs. of torque will remain freely at the driver's disposal. Of course, the mcchip-dkr project vehicle, Porsche 991 Carrera S 3.0, is equipped with level 2. The speedy Porsche is also outfitted with a so-called PDK-transmission optimization. This means, the enforced up- or downshifting (kickdown) is deactivated, the up- and downshifting (+/-) works like the 991 GT3 and 991 Turbo, the maximum of the engine speed/RPM is increased and faster gear shifting as well as a higher clutch pressure are in effect. The transmission enhancement adds 1.490 Euro incl. VAT to the mcchip-dkr invoice. This feature is also available for the Cayman 987 or 981, the Boxster 987 or 981 and the 911 type 997. Finally, the reliable KW-thread springs and the striking in-house vinyl design have to be mentioned.
