Porsche 997.2 W.C. GT3RS Build by GMG Racing

This Porsche 997.2 GT3 RS has got the full GMG World Challenge street/track car make-over. For those of you who are unaware of who GMG Racing is, they are currently what factory Porsche racing is now as to what ANDIAL was to Porsche racing back in the 70’s and 80’s  The two shops even happen to reside next to each other in Santa Ana, California. Now, if you are unaware of who ANDIAL is, then it’s quite possible that you are just not a Porsche guy. Fair enough. Let’s just say that Porsche has recently bought ANDIAL as their very own AMG, or M division, just to give you a smidgen of an idea. GMG races in the World Challenge series, which is North America’s premier sprint racing series with cars competing from such manufacturers as Porsche, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Cadillac, Ford, Aston Martin, Volvo, Corvette, Mercedes, plus more. GMG has been successfully campaigning Porsche GT3 Cup cars in this series for several years now and even captured the 2010 Manufacturers Championship title for Porsche. Who then better to modify your GT3 street car for the track than a shop that wins races with them?  Enough said for now, let’s just take a moment for a break and let the pictures speak for themselves […]

Bruce Canepa Offers Porsche 959 Upgrades

Since Porsche 959’s are now legal to be roaming freely on our open American highways, Bruce Canepa of Canepa Design in Scotts Valley, California offers a conversion available in 2 phases to really bring them up to their full potential. To most die hard automotive enthusiasts, Bruce needs no introduction, but in case you still aren’t sure of who he is, maybe the video of his shakedown of a Porsche 917 on a public highway embedded in our previous 917 restoration feature here will help the comprehension process: http://www.carbuildindex.com/19504/1972-porsche-91710-008-restoration/. To say that this guy knows his Porsches would be a gargantuan understatement. Continue on the following page for more details on the warmed-over 959… He starts with extremely well cared for examples from his search all around the world. Since the cars are all wheel drive, a lot of them have been driven throughout the year in all sorts of weather conditions, so it is important for him to find clean, low mileage examples with 6,000 miles or less. The conversion costs between $100,000 and $140,000 with Phase 1 producing 575 hp and Phase 2 is said to make north of 640 hp. He installs a new Motec-based engine management system, new […]

Porsche 911 GT3RS 4.2L Pumpkin Build

Happy Halloween! When better than today to post a story about an orange, pumpkin-looking Porsche 997 GT3RS being built into a 4.2 liter track monster? Champion Motorsports in Florida is the shop who is responsible for this track day build thread, who you may remember from a feature we did not long ago about a Turbo S being transformed into the ultimate RSR street/track car. They have done quite a few 997 Turbo engine builds, but this time they have turned their attention to a naturally aspirated GT3RS owned by 6speedonline.com forum member “Ranger”. We wouldn’t be surprised to see this brute savage overtaking Cup cars on the straights like a possessed pumpkin as it’s sound alone is unbelievable, if nothing else. Trick-or-treaters will be scouring for cover when they hear this evil jack-o-lantern come-to-life barreling towards them, taking shelter and ducking into any shallow hallow near by in fear of what lurks in the deep recesses of it’s darkened heart… Ok ok, not to worry, that will be our last and only attempt at Halloween humor so please continue on the next page without concern to cheesy amusement, we promise… This particular GT3RS is a bit more of a […]

2010 Porsche 997.2 GMG WC-GT3RS Build

This 2010 Porsche 997.2 GT3RS was the subject of a For Sale thread by “James-GMG” on rennlist.com.  Although the car has already been sold, it’s impressive list of modifications still make it worthy of mentioning here. It is always interesting to see what these cars are capable of when they are modified correctly with a no-expense-spared list of performance parts. Not to mention the shop GMG is a top quality, factory-involved race shop who is consistently on the podium. Who better for the job? This  GT3RS was built as a turnkey street/track weapon by Global Motorsports Group in Santa Ana, California, complete with their WC Package with it’s own certification and serial number.The previous owner already had a blast with it as he worked his way up from Driver Education track driving to Time Trialing and was ready to go Club racing, therefore it was put up for sale so he could purchase a track-only Porsche GT3 Cup car. Under steer was completely eliminated with help from an OS Giken limited slip differential, as well as 265 Hoosiers on 19×9’s up front and 345 Hoosiers on 19X12’s rear, wrapped around GMG 130R rims of their own in-house design. The rear steamrollers are a wider size than the rules […]

Porsche 924 GTR with 944 S2 Engine

This factory Porsche 924 GTR is the subject of a re-build thread on 924board.org by it’s owner, Scott Sanda. He purchased the car, minus it’s engine, many years prior to this car’s on-line posting, but there is unfortunately no mention if it is still using it’s original 935-based gearbox. Filling the engine bay now is a 3 liter, 4 valve per cylinder normally aspirated 944 S2 4 cylinder engine with Motec FI, built by expert Mike Mount. Scott mentions Kelly Moss Motorsports in the post, which is where we believe the re-build took place, based on some of the photos. If so, it is guaranteed that the execution is top tier, as they are among the most well respected Porsche shops in the country. As we always say, there is just something about a project involving a white car with a cage and BBS rims… The original 1980 factory 924 Carrera GTRs were 2 liter, 2 valve per cylinder, turbocharged 4 cylinders producing 320 horsepower. They used the standard 924 blocks, 931 cylinder heads, crankshafts, con-rods, and much larger turbos and intercoolers. The box flairs that we love so much on street cars of that era can be attributed to competition vehicles such as these 924 GTR’s receiving […]
