Huge congratulations to our good friend Todd and his team from Speed Concepts who took second place overall in this year’s one lap of America, in there awesome Porsche 997 GT3R TT.
We have been following Todd and his updates and been in regular contact over the year to find out how the upgrades were progressing from last year to this, and it seems with what they have installed in the way of updates did them proud, with a little bit of help along the way from the likes of BBI, Cobb Tuning, it’s been a real pleasure to follow the updates and track the build progress over the last few months.
Full spec of this beauty is as follows:
The car started life as a Porsche Turbo S, and now wears a full carbon fibre GT3R aero kit, including all the nice little extras like the flat underbody floor from front to rear.
The engine is running stock internals and putting down 600+ wheel HP on a 93 octane tune. This Turbo is running 30/82 turbos, meth injection, air-to-water intercoolers, Speed Concept headers, Dodson clutches and IPD Plenum and custom IPD/SC Y-Pipe. The power is put to the ground through 13” Forgeline wheels with 345/30R19 tyres at the business end, with 12” wheels wearing 325/30R19 up the front. The suspension features ERP and BBI components, 997 RSR uprights, Tarret front sway bar and SC rear sway bar, as you can see its full loaded and no stone has been left unturned in its search for reliable performance, whilst being completely road legal.
Our 997 carbon aero programme has really taken off over the last few months, after perfecting the fitment for road application, We are eagerly waiting for our South African Tuning partners to release their 700+ bhp GT3R track beast to the world, as well as a road build happening at Sleepers Speed Shop in California on a Porsche Turbo model, plus we will be assisting our good friends at Speedwells build their very own R 997 Porsche for the UK market over the next few months, watch this space as we launch these builds to the global market.
