The new Porsche 911 (991) Carrera might be in the headlines at the moment, but Porsche tuner and parts manufacturer, Champion Motorsports, has done some work on the 997 Carrera Turbo S that may well warrant a little drooling.
Champion Motorsports wanted to create a road-going Porsche 911 RSR and with the 911 Turbo S as their base, have managed to unleash around 425 kW and 845 Nm of torque (on the wheels) from the turbocharged, 3.8-litre, flat-six.
The details of the entire project are far too intense to list here, but suffice to say the car has been completely stripped and rebuilt to create the most hardcore, road-legal, 911. To cut a long story short, Champion Motorsports have installed two VTG turbochargers, carbon fibre RSR bodywork, a factory RSR floor undertray, straight-through exhaust pipes, new suspension arms, an RSR sway bar and custom fabricated carbon fibre components such as wheel-well housing, brake cooling ducts, inner fender aprons and front floor panel.
In addition, chassis upgrades include four-way adjustable Ohlins coilover suspension (US$15 000) and a set of magnesium wheels (US$30 000). As a result, the new RSR can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds. If you’re wondering what the final price of the sports car is, take a seat before reading… US$399 900.
