This Porsche 996 CSR Evo Is The GT3 That Porsche Should Have Built

This screaming eggplant could be described, somewhat unfairly, as an OEM+ version of the 996. With a little more power, several modifications to improve durability, less weight, and a sharpened chassis, its modifications might not impress the most number-hungry types. However, these well-chosen tweaks blend together beautifully and transform a base 996—already a strong car—into something GT3-rivaling.

The ducktail, athletic stance, and OZ Alleggerita wheels turns this once-garden-variety 996 into something with real presence.

The CSR EVO’s suspension is completely overhauled with KW ClubSport coilovers, adjustable anti-roll bars, stiffer engine mounts, adjustable lower control arms, and improve suspension geometry. The result, as RPM Technik put it, is « aimed at the track driver for more aggressive turn in and high speed stability. »

The motor isn’t a complete powerhouse, but improved incrementally in most areas for a more involving and rewarding experience overall. The M96 is strengthened for trackday abuse with a third radiator and a low-temp thermostat. Of course, it also gets an upgraded IMS.

With a lightweight clutch and flywheel, short shifter, and stiffer transmission mount, the urgency and directness of the motor is more akin to that of the GT3. It’s more engaging and less refined, and those traits are complemented by a healthy 350 horsepower. That bump in grunt comes courtesy of a top end refresh, gas flowed heads, cams, and special engine mapping. What’s more crucial is that the power delivery is much stronger; with an impressive amount of torque available from just 2,000 rpm.

A center-exit exhaust helps tie all these mods together—and improves the soundtrack:

RPM Technik have a unique approach when it comes to the appearance of their cars. Unlike the CSR Retro, this car is modern, sharp, purposeful, and yet understated—like a 996 which started the way it dresses more seriously. The GT3-inspired front bumper, side skirts, and carbon hood make it that much more purposeful, and who can argue with the subdued style of an old ducktail? Without the GT3’s garish taco wing, the CSR EVO’s appearance blends a bit of class with undeniable potential.

The Recaro Pole Positions, a prominent shifter, a half-cage, and a sway of sporty touches give the 996’s cabin a little more sense of occasion.

If your imagination is now going wild, we can’t blame you. If you’re looking for a way to wile away the afternoon and appease your inner tuner, you can spec your own CSR EVO here.
