This RS looks almost stock, but packs insane power.
Manhart will tune up just about anything to make more power, from an 800 hp Porsche Cayenne to this- a 911 GT2 RS with a frankly ridiculous set of figures attached to it. We'll cut right to it. This Manhart GT2 RS makes 945 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque. Not only does that outdo a stock GT2 RS, but it also outdoes any car in Porsche's current RS lineup- including the new GT3 RS.
As ever, the list of parts needed to make such a bonkers set of figures is shockingly little. Not to discredit Manhart's hard work, mind you. The company puts real time into any of its projects, with more power, bespoke upgrades, and a distinct gold-tinged look.
The RS is no different. Manhart starts by re-christening the GT2 RS, now labeled the Manhart TR900. Of course, changes go deeper than that. The German outfit adds larger TTH 1000 turbos, an intercooler kit by CSF, which gets a larger fan to match, and its own IPD aluminum intake manifold.
The RS breathes a bit better thanks to Kline Innovation downpipes paired with 200-cell cats. Note, those are only available on exported cars, as they do not have TUV approval in Germany. The brand offers them on its Manhart TR800 with the same caveat.
Manhart says it upgraded Porsche's 7-speed PDK, but it doesn't specify how. In all likelihood, it needs new clutches to cope with the torque.
Manhart has made the GT2 RS handle better, but it does not specify what chassis changes are made to the RS. However, Manhart has partnered with DB Carbon to make the RS a little more leichtgewicht. A new splitter, air intake frame, side skirts, and diffuser are fitted.
Of course, Manhart will also fit a full range of its own gold decals, including the iconic window banner adorning nearly all its projects. This car is wrapped in Midnight Dark Green, but the brand offers a litany of customization options including different colors for the body and wheels. The price is, as ever, "if you have to ask."
