Pretty sure I recall a few custom (non-Porsche) cars that have done this. Electric turbochargers will make this conversation moot.
You guys are killing me. Would one of you be so kind as to give me $20-30K so I can do this and assuage my power starved life? Actually, any contributions would be greatly appreciated and accepted. I hope I don't get in trouble with the moderators for soliciting.

I did see an article a while ago about a 911 deviant with lots of $$$ that built or had built for him a supercharged 911 with twin turbos for the extreme top end made something like 1000 rwhp , the car cost in excess of $200K. I would love to drive that thing.
