As if Porsche‘s GT2 wasn’t potent enough from the factory, the masterminds at Wimmer RS have taken the factory 620-hp to a fun-filled 703-hp, with 597 ft-lbs of torque to boot. The horsepower boost comes thanks to a new pair of optimized turbochargers, an air intake adjustment, tuning of the throttle valve, a new sport air filter and new exhaust system.

Even more impressive are some of the other numbers Wimmer RS decided to share with the public. Their GT2 RS is reportedly capable of a 0-62 mph time of around 3.3 seconds with a top speed of 221 mph.

We’re pretty sure this is the first example of a modified Porsche GT2 RS, but we can guarantee it most certainly won’t be the last.
