So you thought the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS is powerful ha?! Well, check out Switzer’s idea of a hot GT2. It is based on their P800 package which had 800 hp, but this one’s called the R911S, and there’s a clue! It has an insane 911 hp. Apparently it’s the same as the P800 only with much bigger intercoolers. And the coolest thing is that Switzer has priced it at $239,900, cheaper than the 620-hp GT2 RS.
So it’s very powerful and undoubtedly very fast in straight line, but what about corners? You see even the standard GT2 with 530 hp is a tricky little thing to drive fast, so Switzer Performance has equipped their car with titanium inverted-front-strut, remote-reservoir suspension engineered by the track experts at JRZ.
Whatever that is, Switzer says that it’s not just a tough and unforgiving racing suspension, it features hand-selected spring and damping rates, specifically catering to each client’s track experience and level of aggression.
They also provide a carbon package, that’s ” an exclusive suite of lightweight carbon-fiber body panels that sheds weight from the R911S and lowers the car’s center of gravity for maximum performance in advanced-level trackday and time-attack sessions”, so it has better power-to-weight ration than the GT2 RS as well. They really want to drive the customers away from Porsche’s own car!
