Wimmer Rennsporttechnik is a hard name to pronounce, but the only thing that I can think of that would be harder is trying to catch up to their modified Porsche 911 GT2. This one makes 680 HP and can go from 0 to 60 MPH in only 3.4 seconds and hit 300 km/h from a standstill in just over 25 seconds.

Press release after the jump.

Engine output at its best: Wimmer Rennsporttechnik Solingen traditionally turns cars into faster and hotter models than they already are in series. At the moment they target the new Porsche 997 GT2 Biturbo. Thorsten Wimmer shows the ropes with a 680 hp Porsche 997 GT2 Evo - delivered with 530 hp. The new competitive athlete from Wimmer RS is hot, tenacious and has a super cool visual appearance.

DTM-approved race technique appoints the genes of the Dunlop tire, which therewith opened a new product segment: the MaxxPerformance-tires. The Sport-Maxx GT - in 235/30-20 and 325/25-20, fitted on beautiful Sportec-rims, makes sure of an excellent stability of the maximum speed. Even in areas far over 300 km/h.

The optical appearance is spiced up by exterior mirrors and rear spoiler lip made of carbon. Upon request of the customer all parts can be made of carbon. The chassis has been improved by H&R- components, to cope with the increased driving performances.

Whether you like the tuning or not. This car is still a monster coz it is a Porsche 997 GT2

Mike, Wimmer Rennsporttechnik may not sound as a car’s name as it is not really a car’s name it is a car tuner’s brand name.

I hope that the tradition goes on and on and on!

what are guys talking about. the car looks perfect. besides, you’re not just after the looks. you’re also after about the hp. and if you look at the facts, you’ll see that this car is pretty great!

I think you’re talking about the nose being too long while its behind is too short.

When you look at the details of the car, they all look great. But when you put them together (see 5th picture) there seems to be something wrong and I don’t know what it is. Sad.

This is perhaps one of the monstrous car ever. More than just the to-die-for body is its amazing interiors.

Wimmer Rennsporttechnik may not sound as a car’s name but it definitely knows what it takes to be THE CAR.

The tuning is superb from exhaust sytem to the chasis upgrades. And with a reasonable pricing for tuning, this works great.

The H&R components that improved its chasis only means that buyers are not olny getting good looks here but also a stable car performance.

Look at those rims... it is so brute and all ready for action.

Well all I can say is that I love the rear front, the sport exhaust system, and of course the sporttech rims

Just to add. Wimmer RS added a carbon-fiber rear-lip spoiler and carbon side mirrors to differentiate the car from its tamer GT2 siblings. At the customers’ request, the Wimmer RS GT2’s entire body also can be made out of carbon-fiber

Buying a 911 GT2 isn’t cheap, with a base price of $194,000, but the Wimmer RS GT2 package isn’t too outrageously priced like some tuner packages. The whole package (excluding the optional carbon-fiber body) costs €29,800 ($40,600)

Pronounce this tuner’s name correctly or I’ll take this Porsche 997 GT2 bby with me forever

Wimmer Rennsporttechnik knows the real trick...its not in prouncing their difficult name but in high grade tuning that they know best.
