Turbo RS: A Porsche 991 like no different

A humble man in Norway owns a really distinctive Porsche 911.

The automobile rolled off the meeting line as a 991 Turbo S, however after a 12-month transformation that included custom-made Porsche work, it was unofficially redesigned as a "Turbo RS" with 680 hp (counting) to begin.

At a look, the automobile seems to be like a GT2 RS, however in the event you take a more in-depth look you will see that that every little thing is mistaken because it appears. The entrance bumper, bonnet and facet skirts are all components of the GT2 RS, however they’ve been modified to suit completely with the Turbo S mannequin, with totally purposeful air intakes on the entrance. It was not straightforward work, however Porsche made it work.

On the again, the proprietor opted not for the GT2 RS wing, however for a barely decrease elevated merchandise 991.2 GT3 RS.

After Porsche had woven its magic, the automobile was introduced again from Germany and left within the expert fingers of a Norwegian tuner, which propelled it to a complete new degree within the efficiency division.

The unique plan was to make use of the GT2 RS's wheels for the automobile, however there was an issue that finally meant that this concept had been deserted. It’s right here that Vossen stepped in and constructed a novel set of wheels GNS-21 – 21 × 9.5 inches on the entrance and 21 × 12.5 inches on the again – completed in gunmetal bronze.

Raise up the rear hood and discover the identical three.Eight-liter flat-six that's discovered within the GT2 RS, however with modified retailers and turbos, in addition to a Do88 intercooler to hold round 680 CV and 850 Nm. Because of the TechArt chassis choices which might be additionally current within the combine and the nice rubber on the highway, this AWD machine places it on the bottom simply.

It’s possible you’ll be questioning why the proprietor didn’t save himself the difficulty of shopping for a GT2 RS, however the reply is easy: you can’t get your children within the again. I solely have two locations. This tradition construct solves this downside, whereas AWD makes it appropriate with Norway for winter use.

That is additionally an attention-grabbing addition to a set together with an Audi RS2 and a Ford Escort RS Cosworth.

As spectacular as this automobile could also be, the proprietor has not completed but. He’s presently working with a famend Swedish tuner, Supra, to deliver his 900 hp "Turbo RS" with a revised turbo system and nitrous oxide. Maybe we should always take one other look quickly …
