This Is The Next Best Thing To A Porsche 911 GT3 RS Convertible


The Carrera 4 GTS Targa now has GT3 RS levels of power.

Last year saw the reveal of the 991.2 generation 911 GTS, a mid-range model that’s more potent than a base 911 but not quite as a savage as the GT3 RS. Currently, the GT3 RS is only available as a coupe, but thanks to German tuner McChip-dkr we now have the next best thing to an open-top GT3 RS. The tuner has extensively modified the Carrera 4 GTS Targa to deliver GT3 RS levels of power. Power output is now 566 hp and 498 lb-ft of torque, which is a significant upgrade over 450 hp and 405 lb-ft you get in the standard car.

To achieve this, the tuner installs a stage three performance upgrade that includes upgraded turbochargers, new stainless steel downpipes, a performance chip, and Capristo exhaust with sports catalysts and GT3-RS tailpipes. Performance is further enhanced with a set of height-adjustable KW coilovers and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes. The tuner also fits the Carrera 4 GTS Targa with a set of GT3 RS wheels to make the custom Targa look like an authentic Porsche, 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inch wheels at the rear, while the bumpers, fenders and trim are all taken from the GT3 RS as well to make the Targa look more hardcore.

Inside, the custom 911 Targa features a retro-inspired interior with door panels and the seats covered in a classic “Pepita” check pattern resembling upholstery that was available in classic Porsches. The result is the most hardcore-looking 911 convertible to date that will hopefully convince Porsche to make a topless GT3 RS one day.
