The 9FF GT9 VMAX is a Porsche 911 GT3 (997)-based hypercar.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX is an upgraded version of the 9FF GT9, loosely based on the Porsche 911 (Type 997) GT3. Created to beat the world record for the fastest production car, it was instead beaten by the SSC Ultimate Aero and every single one of the 9FF GT9 variants was sold at an auction. The 9FF GT9s were never tested either.
Improving from the GT9-R package, the 9FF GT9 VMAX delivers 1381 hp (1400 PS;1030 kW) and 855 ft·lb (1159 N·m) from a 4.2 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine. The VMAX can do 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, 0-124 mph in 6.8 seconds, and 0-186 mph in 13 seconds. The car reaches a top speed of 272 mph (437 km/h).
The 9FF GT9 VMAX extensively uses carbon fiber bodywork, polycarbonate windows, and lightweight wheels.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX was added to the game during the 2014 Winter Update. Originally ranking as a high-end vehicle in Class S, it is now a mid-tier car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1543
- MAX rank: 1686
- MAX+PRO rank: 1778
- Tuning Kit bonus: +32
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 235
- Upgrade rank percentages: 5/50/10/35
- Speed Modifier: 88.60%
- Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15
The 9FF GT9 VMAX was the only Class S vehicle of the 2014 Winter Update and the first non-premium token-purchasable Class S vehicle in the game. Note: This vehicle is no longer available for purchase.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX, a very well-balanced vehicle, was the fastest vehicle in the game upon its debut and served as the "King" of Class S until the Decals Update, which introduced the even more effective Ferrari Enzo Ferrari.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX can be considered the McLaren 675LT of Class S in terms of performance. All of its stats are as the same as the McLaren, the 9FF has mediocre acceleration (slower than its main rivals), sharp drifting & good handling, very good top speed (the same as the 675LT at MAX/PRO) and excellent nitro durations.
Seeing as to how there are now better alternatives like the TRION NEMESIS, McLaren 675LT, etc., the 9FF GT9 VMAX has become almost completely useless, especially in Events, due to the lack of events that involve the VMAX as the dominant vehicle. In many events that involve mid-high-end Class S vehicles like the VMAX, most players use either the Lamborghini Egoista or Ferrari Enzo Ferrari instead.

The 9FF GT9 VMAX used to cost 12,000. MAX+PROing the car requires 3,047,050, making it the first car that costs more than 3,000,000 in terms of total upgrades. As of the Porsche Update, the 9FF GT9 VMAX is no longer available for purchase. Prior to the aforementioned update, the VMAX and all other Porsche-derived cars were given away for free via giveaway cups.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX, erroneously renamed to 9FF GT9-R, appears as a Class S car, added in the fourth update and officially made playable in the fifth update.
The 9FF GT9-R, a Class S car, behaves exactly the same as its Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition, but is now the fastest car in the game.
