KAEGE takes the Porsche 911 GT3 RS down the power up, weight shaved road image

The German aftermarket specialist has announced the introduction of the bespoke tailoring program for the 997 generation of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

We don’t actually care about the generation – we only depicted the number for the hardcore fans – as any of the 911 GT3 RS iterations are spectacular, exquisite and highly worthy of praise and attention. The tuners don’t usually mess around with this one, but every now and then they set out to try and prove there are still improvements to be made. The latest one to do so is KAEGE and their 997 generation is actually still a work in progress. So far they came up with an M+M muffler system that increases power by 8 horsepower (6 kilowatts) and will reduce weight by 15 pounds (7 kilograms). There’s also a bespoke air box produced out of carbon fiber and coming up with another 7 hp (5 kW) while the electrical power steering pump has also been replaced. New air filters and a Sachs sports clutch round up the changes – the latter is also mated to a short-shifter for the gearbox.

We also see the classic-looking 19-inch BBS wheels that also reduce mass by 20 lbs (9 kg) and come sporting Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. KAEGE has also reworked the handling pack by adding in a custom KW suspension kit made from aluminum and the battery has been ditched in favor of a lithium-ion pack that drops another 33 lbs (15 kg). Other modifications result in a further mass loss of 44 lbs (20 kg). The cabin features a vintage-inspired checkered fabric upholstery and the tuner has also painted the rollover cage and other elements in the same color as the body.
