When we reported last month on the Wimmer RS 911 GT2, we surmised that just about everything else would be left in its wake. We were mistaken. Because while most cars – Porsche's own top-of-the-line GT2 included – may have trouble keeping up, here are a pair of bad boys that clearly won't. Because while the Wimmer GT2 packs an impressive 680 horsepower, each of these custom GT2s produces more than 800.
American tuning house Switzer has replaced the stock Porsche turbochargers with even larger ones, recalibrated the engine management and fitted a custom exhaust system to produce a certified 800 horsepower running on standard 93-octane gasoline. Pump in a higher-rated fuel and there's no telling what the Switzer GT2 will be capable of. But if you're looking for something even more extreme, 9ff has got you covered. The German tuning firm has emerged as the be-all and end-all of Porsche tuners, and is backing up its reputation with what it calls the BT2. Based on the same flagship supercar, 9ff has extracted a mind-boggling 850 horsepower to drive its super-sled up to 240 miles per hour, passing 60 in just three seconds. They've topped theirs off with carbon fiber body panels to reduce weight and an aerodynamics kit to keep it planted on the road, and painted this demo model in classic blue-and-orange Gulf livery. Nice work if you can get it.
