Porsche 991 Turbo Accessport Development & Pikes Peak Hill Climb Testing!


Porsche 991 Turbo and Turbo S Accessport Development

We entered the Porsche aftermarket world a little over 1 year ago with Accessport support for the 997.1 911 Turbo.  Since then, we have added an additional 4 Porsche Accessport part numbers that support more than 70 vehicles across 10 model years.   Couple that with our Accesstuner custom tuning software and custom features such as 3-Bar MAP sensor support and Left Foot Braking and you have the most versatile hand held tuning device available in the Porsche enthusiast market.  When Porsche released the 520hp, All Wheel Drive, 7-speed dual clutch 991 Turbo, we knew it would be a force to be reckoned with right out of the box.   Seeing as we can’t leave well enough alone, we’ve recently been working on adding the 2014+ 911 Turbo and Turbo S to the ever-growing list of Accessport compatible vehicles.  Testing has gone extremely well and we are anticipating a late-summer launch to the public.  In the meantime, our software and calibrations are being put through the test in one of the most demanding races around, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

For the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, we are working with Porsche of Colorado Springs and David Donner to compete in what promises to be a very exciting Time Attack 2 Class.  David is a four-time winner of the Hill Climb and will be piloting a 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S up the mountain.  With his knowledge of the mountain along with our Porsche Lead Calibrator, Mitch  McKee’s knowledge of the Porsche Turbo platform, we are very hopeful to bring home top honors!  Class regulations limit modifications to factory Porsche exhaust, brakes, and suspension components, so most of the power gains will come from tuning utilizing the Accessport.  We’ll be covering the team’s preparation, practice, and race day right here on the COBB Blog!  Check out Part 1 of the series as the crew heads to Pueblo Motorsports Park in Pueblo, CO for some shake-down runs and initial gathering of data.  We’ll have more next week as the team makes it’s way to Pikes Peak for testing on the mountain itself!
