More Horsepower? Yes Please

The Porsche 911 GTS is an excellent car, one you might think could not be made any better. Well, the tuner company RUF Automobile GmbH is here to prove you wrong. RUF’s new GT car is based on the Porsche 991 generation of the 911 GTS. The company took the car and added a bit more power, among other things. 

The RUF GT comes with a 3.0 liter flat-six twin-turbo engine that makes a super-strong 515 hp and 476 lb-ft. That’s Porsche GT3 levels of power in a GTS. In other words, it’s just plain awesome. It makes the car good for a 0 to 62 mph run of 3.4 seconds. That’s a tenth of a second faster. The top speed also increased from 192 mph to 199 mph. While that might not seem like a dramatic shift in performance, they are notable numbers.

The car gets only a few styling changes. New equipment includes bumpers, air intakes, rear diffuser, and twin tailpipes. That’s all that’s altering the look of the car. If you really want to make some additions to your RUF GT you can add a new ducktail rear spoiler or a big fixed wing. The wheels for all of the RUF GTs are a unique five-spoke design. 

The changes to the Porsche aren’t life-altering, but they’re notable changes and worthy of some recognition. RUF does some seriously cool modifications to performance vehicles. The company brought two cars to the Geneva Motor Show: the vehicle profiled above and a special GTR Anniversary edition machine that’s a homage to the classic Yellowbird car. That car comes with a carbon fiber chassis and puts out 710 hp. All we know is that we want one of these machines from the German tuner company.
