Wimmer Tunes Porsche 911 GT2 RS to 703 HP


Just to clarify: 703 horsepower. As if 620 wasn't enough, German tuning house Wimmer has managed to increase power and overall blood flow to the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Although only 500 productions units were built, Wimmer managed to get their hands on one to do some cosmetic surgery. The "base" car's 620 hp will take it from 0-62 mph in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph. For Wimmer, that just wasn't good enough.

Their upgrades focused on the car's 3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer motor by remapping the engine controller, optimized the turbochargers, added a sport-air filter, new air-intake, and a valve-controlled sport exhaust system with sport catalysts. All told, these modifications result in the aforementioned 703 hp, with peak torque rising to 597.5 lb-ft. 0-62 time is now 3.3 seconds and the car can hit the 124 mph mark in just 9.5 seconds. Top speed is now rated at 221.2 mph. How do you say "holy schnikes" in German?
