Just arrived: Porsche 997 Turbo with 600bhp Cargraphic conversion

This is exciting. It’s a Porsche 997 Turbo that has been breathed on by renowned Porsche specialist Parr Motorsport. It’s had a Cargraphic engine conversion installed that has boasted power to over 600bhp. I’ve only driven it briefly but, believe me, it’s fast!
