Porsche 997 GT2 by Wimmer Rennsporttechnik
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.
The sportive Porsche GT2 from Wimmer RS wants to get on the race track. It feels at home in tricky chicanes as well as on the streets. Full 680 hp and -remarkable 870 Nm are achieved by the following conversions:
- a bi-turbo engine
- an improvement of the engine management in combination with two optimized Wimmer turbochargers
- a custom-built Wimmer sport exhaust system with two 100 Zeller sport catalysts
- a development of the cylinder head
- sport camshafts

The all-inclusive-price rather complete engine conversion prices at 29.800,00 Euro, fitting and left-lane-guarantee included.
According to Wimmer the acceleration to the speed of 100 is 3.4 sec. 200 km/h is reached in only 9.78 sec., and 300 km/h reaches the hp-monster in spectacular 25,8 sec. Concerning maximum speed there are hanging 356 km/h in the air - depending on conversion and clearance of the tires!
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.
The beautiful, handmade, and back pressure optimized sport exhaust system from Wimmer RS lets the whole power, hid under the hood, sound in a wonderful tone.
