Wimmer RS creates a 1,020 hp Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Back in May 2010 Porsche rolled out the most powerful production and road legal 911 that they have ever made, the 911 GT2 RS (997). That car has a 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine with two turbochargers good for no less than 612 hp and a maximum torque of 516 lb-ft. The price of this monster when it came out was a steep 237,578 euros (approximately 310,300). While we consider this as being an extremely powerful piece of machinery, the German tuners at Wimmer RS have a different opinion which is why they have created an upgrade program for this potent 911 GT2 RS.

What they have done is develop and optimize two turbochargers, remapped the ECU, install machined cylinder heads, timing chains, sports camshaft and crankshaft, a fuel pump unit, piston and connecting rods, twin 200-cell sport catalysts and two manifolds with bypass. Thanks to all of these modifications, the engine now pumps out 1,020 hp at 7,340 rpm and a maximum torque of 817 lb-ft (1108 Nm) reached at 5680 rpm. While the stock 911 GT2 RS hits a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), the Wimmer RS-tuned version will continue to accelerate until it reaches a maximum speed of 242 mph (389 km/h).

Other changes aside from the healthy power boost include a three-way adjustable Competition-suspension developed by KW, a new set of custom 19-inch alloy wheels and a foil wrap.
