    • a-workx tuned Porsche 991.2 GT3 RS sets insanely quick Hockenheim GP laptime of 1:46.0

      This is why the GT3 is special. Sure, people are obsessed with power and acceleration these days but if you are about the track experience there are few cars as satisfying as a GT3. The sound, the look, the feel, just everything about it screams race car.


      It performs like one too where it matters. Spott Auto got an absolutely insane laptime of 1:46.0 out of this tuned GT3 RS.

      What does that mean? Well, a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ they tested recently did a 1:47.3. The a-workx 991.2 GT3 RS is over a second quicker than a car that is already beating the McLaren 720S, AMG GT R, and Porsche 918 Spyder.

      It is doing it with a naturally aspirated 4.0 liter six-cylinder which is nothing short of miraculous.

      Yes, it is tuned but it is not like there is a ton to squeeze out of the motor. They are doing it with Ohlins suspension work and some weight savings courtesy of a lightweight battery, lightweight BBS rims, and a titanium exhaust.

      Unbelievable performance. Oh, and in the hands of a-workx the car did a 1:45.0 which is a full second faster than Sport Auto's number.

        Light weight will always be king, and a balanced chassis will always be king.
