Sportec’s involvement at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show involves the introduction of a couple of Porsche programs, one of which is for the limited edition 911 (997) GT3 RS 4.0.

We all know that Porsche is only making 600 of these bad boys so if any of the owners have dreams of having a program done on their baby, then Sportec has all your needs spoken for.

The program, which is called the ’SP 525’, comes with aerodynamic components such as a new carbon fiber bonnet that cuts down on the car’s overall weight. In addition, Sportec also added windscreen viewing bars, an Sportec optical package, an optional video box, and a new set of 20" large Mono/7 wheels with central locking, wrapped in Michelin PS2 Cup tires.

Performance enhancements are also part of the SP 525 program. For this particular project, Sportec installed sports catalytic converters and an Akrapovic exhaust system, as well as reprogrammed the 911 GT3 RS 4.0’s ECU unit. The result is an increase in output for the sports car’s 4.0-liter engine from 500 horsepower and 339 lb/ft of torque to 525 horsepower and 354 lb/ft of torque. The increased output results in a faster 0-62 mph time of 3.8 seconds - an improvement from 3.9 seconds - with a top speed of 195 mph.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

It looked like perfectly good at the moment Sportec took their job on this Porsche. I’m liking their senses on enhancing this 911 to more speedy and powerful cars.

Sportec focused more on giving it supportive features.

Apparently, Sportec focused on the addition of functional and helpful features. That is why 911 has been tuned to a great extent, empowering it to have a speedier performance.

That was brilliant of Sportec to add more features, which are actually functional and helpful to the car’s performance. Aside from that, some of the physical components are subtly stylish.

It seems like Sportec took their time on its features more. It’s a good thing that they didn’t neglect its style and engine.

Sportec has poured a decent amount of modification to this Porsche car. I love how they managed to make it more speedy and powerful, not to mention the excellent customization of some features.

It is good that cars with aerodynamics and light weight materials are gradually increasing. That is a big help in reducing the slowness of the run and the car itself. No wonder the speed of this car has boosted even more. Just a side comment, its tires are really special.
