Porsche 997 GT3 R with a difference

We are pleased to announce that our Porsche 997 GT3 R13 LS7 V8 is now officially complete, built by the extremely talented duo at LSX-Performance Kyle and Ashley, this is one Porsche that you will want sitting on your drive way, so let’s look at what makes this 997 so special.


It started life as a very sick 997 C4S and as with most of the 991.1 3.8 engines this one also had the very famous piston slap and not even 100k on the clock, which was the main reason for buying this particular car as we had discussed with kyle 18 month previously that this build would wear our forged 3 piece wheels, along with our R13 GT3R wide aero kit and he would build one of his very special bespoke LS7 V8 engines with this one pumping out 680 HP on its highly tuned AWD chassis.

On this build we worked with Nitron Suspension fitting at set of the NTR R1, that work in tandem by the GT3RR manufactured adjustable arms, that position the wheels to perfection with all the caster and camber adjustable, the set up will need to fine tuning over the coming weeks, although we do like the Nitron set up, all builds moving forward we will be working with our long term partners Bilstein who will build us a system specifically built for our application.


The car needs a bit of fine tuning and the air intake system that GT3RR have developed now needs some miles and we have developed a new engine cover and rear wing assembly where the intake filters reside, the engine also needs its final map, then its just a case of getting this beauty out and about for people to see up close and personal.

We will be building this platform as a drive in drive out turn key conversion with everything done in-house with GT3RR and BCFAB at our new base in Market Drayton Shropshire, we have base models in stock ready to convert, so they are at the stage of choosing your engine specification along with body colour, so get in touch with us for further information.
