Porsche Exclusive has announced a new upgrade kit for the 2013 911 Carrera S that’s more than just an intake and exhaust.

In stock form the Carrera S is nothing to sneeze at, but there’s always room for improvement, or at least the addition of some ponies and style points. The Powerkit is fairly extensive, as far as factory upgrades are concerned.

Let’s start with the motor. With the addition of newly designed cylinder heads and more aggressive cams, the power curve simply gets bumped up, with the gain in flow offset by the lumpier cam profile. To manage the extra volume, Porsche swaps the standard intake for a variable resonance unit, which is sure to make the flat six more audibly pleasing if it wasn’t good enough from the get-go. To finalize the power adders, a unique sport exhaust is also included, followed by a recalibrated ECU to take full advantage of the slew of upgrades. What does all this get you? A 7% gain in horsepower, bringing the 911 Carrera S from 400 to 430 hp. It’ll sprint to 60 in only 3.8 seconds and top out at 191mph, too—not too bad.

With the addition of power comes more heat and the need to control engine movement, so Porsche Exclusive throws in an extra center radiator and the dynamic engine mounts found in pricier models. What fun are upgrades if they only walk the walk, though?

The Powerkit comes with a titanium and carbon engine cover so you know you’re looking at something special, and if you don’t want to pop your boot lid in public, the exterior enhancements will give it all away on first glance anyway, so don’t fret.

A new front apron is fitted to the 911 with the larger air ducts from the Sport Design package, and our favorite, the addition of a fixed ducktail spoiler, though that is still just an option. Porsche Exclusive wanted to keep the aerodynamic enhancements up to the owners’ specifications, giving the option to go all out with the top Aerokit Cup, including a larger, fixed rear wing hovering over the factory spoiler and an even more aggressive front lip. However you decide to outfit your 911, though, Porsche Exclusive is making all the right moves to keep you entertained and prema-grinned, and that’s all that really matters.
