The 977-generation Porsche 911 GT2 RS is already praised for its power with an output of 612hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Still, Wimmer RS didn’t see that as a reason not to tune the model anyway and the result is an awesome power boost that tuning houses rarely achieve or even attempt.
Starting with the $310,300 factory model with a 3.6-liter flat-six twin-turbo motor, the German tuning house swaped out the stock turbos for a set of optimized ones, remapped the ECU, and gave it timing chains, machined cylinder heads, pistons and connecting rods, two manifolds with bypass, sports camshafts and crankshaft and win 200-cell sport catalysts.
A 3-way adjustable Competition-suspension from KW is the only other performance mod outside of engine work.
The sum total of all that work adds up to over 1,006-hp at 7,340 rpm and 817 lb-ft of torque at 5,680 rpm. This massive amount of power rockets the 911 from 0-124 in 8.7 seconds, down from 9.8 seconds and hits 0-186mph in 15.5 seconds, much lower then the 28.9 second stock time, although the stock version’s 0-62mph time of 3.4 seconds remains unchanged. The top speed has also been increased from 205 mph to 242 mph.
That pretty much sums up the package, as the only styling mods included are a set of 19-inch custom wheels, and a foil wrap that one could very easily do without.
So if you’re the lucky owner of one of the 500 GT2 RS models out there and an insatiable thirst for power, this is your kit.
