No expense was spared in this build and I have yet to see one like it. It dynoed at 410 whp/400 ft-lbs on 93 octane. That was before the LPFP and runner flap delete. On race gas tune with meth it put down closer to 450/440. Capable of 0-60 in 3 second range and 1/4 miles in 11.x (never ran it on Stage 3, on 2+ it did a 12.3)

The car is a great daily-sounds stock, has plenty of cargo space, can handle any weather, but has supercar performance anytime you put your foot down. The grip on the PS4S is amazing, better than the Pilot Super Sports. And there is no hint of understeer with the RSB, race Haldex controller, and V3s. The braking is supercar-level also - these calipers were made for Cayennes so stopping a little 3200lb TT is no problem. I never tracked it but the next step in the build would have been race seats and a half-cage.

I hate to sell it but I am also done modding. Hoping to sell to another enthusiast who will rebuild her. Otherwise I’ll part it out.

Asking $12.5k as-is. Located at Redline Speed Worx in Green Brook, NJ (they know the history of this car well, dating back to 2010)
