The SLEDGEHAMMER Porsche 997 is an exercise of testing the limits of the 997's engine, which has the result of 1000 hp. The SLEDGEHAMMER Porsche 997 1000 hp package has been developed by Tym Switzer and his company, Switzer Performance Innovations (SPI) in Oberlin, Ohio. The SLEDGEHAMMER Porsche 997 is able to output 850 all-wheel horsepower, if run on race fuel, and can reach 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. The company also says the car can get from 60 to 130 mph in less than 5 seconds and can run a quarter mile in 9.8 seconds.

A finished Switzer SLEDGEHAMMER is certainly an amazing car. Switzer reports that (despite backing off the throttle early) the first SLEDGEHAMMER (pictured) went almost 195 mph at the Texas mile. Additional performance figures read like the stuff of legend: consistent 0-60 times in the mid 2's, less than 5 seconds to go from 60-130 mph, and 9.8-second quarter mile elapsed times with trap speeds regularly in excess of 145 mph. “With performance like that, these cars really speak for themselves - I have another one on the dyno now, and expect to post the results of those runs shortly.”
