Germany’s Wimmer RS has developed an insane program to suit one of Porsche’s most extreme models, the limited edition 911 GT2 RS.

Retaining the engine’s 3.6-litre displacement, Thorsten Wimmer and his team at the Solingen premises replace the factory turbochargers with a pair of the company’s own uprated units along with a new crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, sports camshafts, an optimized air intake system and fuel pump.

The powerplant was also fitted with new manifolds, 200 cell sport catalysts and a flap controlled exhaust system. Those changes see output rise from 456 kW (620 hp) and 700 Nm of torque to a much more ferocious 761 kW (1,020 hp) and 1,108 Nm, meaning 60 mph appears in just 3.4 seconds, 120 mph in 8.7s and 180 mph in a mind-bending 15.5s. Top speed is a psychotic 241 mph.

Accompanying components in the conversion include a KW Clubsport coilover suspension kit and set of custom-designed superlight 19-inch alloy wheels.
