EDO Competition Porsche 997 GT2 R

The New edo 997 GT2 R

* Conversion kit made from ultra-light carbon fiber in „extra-wide“
* High-performance brake system
* Sport suspension
* Extensive modification program ranging from aerodynamics to engine tuning

The latest project of edo competition Motorsport GmbH showcases an extra-wide sport version of the 997 GT2 R with convincing performance specs:

Specifications

Engine -- water-cooled, twin-turbocharged horizontally opposed 6-cylinder
Power -- est. 542 hp / (398 kW) at 6,790 rpm
Torque -- 755 Nm (557 ft-lb) at 4,300 rpm

Performance

Top speed -- 330 km/h (205 mph)
0 – 100 km/h (0 – 62 mph) -- 3.8 s
0 – 200 km/h (0 – 124 mph) -- 11.0 s

Features

The basis is formed by the edo 996 GT2 R, which had already been modified in the areas of brakes, suspension, engine, transmission, aerodynamics, exhaust system, interior, wheels/tires and light-weight windows. The only thing missing to be up-to-date is the look of the current Porsche 997!

To that end, the following conversion kit made from ultra-light carbon fiber was created:

* Complete front fascia: front skirt, radiator air inlets, brake cooling ducts
* Front fenders modified and widened
* Fender liners
* Mesh inserts front and rear
* Front lip spoiler in carbon fiber
* Modified fuel filler door
* Litronic headlight kit
* Brake system
Rotor diameter front/rear 380/350 mm with 4-piston fixed calipers
* Suspension
Adjustable edo/KW sport suspension with individually adjustable compression and rebound damping
* Wheel dimensions
Tires: Michelin Pilot, front 235/45‑18, rear 335/30‑18 on 10” and 13” wheels

The edo competition conversion kit applies to the following models: 996 Carrera, 996 S4, 996 GT3, 996 GT2 and 996 Turbo. A large selection of body parts, wheels, exhaust systems and suspension components complete edo competition’s modification program.

It goes without saying that engine modifications are readily available.

Upgrades producing up to 680 hp (500 kW) at 6070 rpm and 870 Nm (642 ft-lb) at 4220 rpm are possible (base: Turbo and GT2).

Ugly is ugly, regardless of performance.

I think that it would look 10 times better if they made the front fender flares smaller. As of now this car is just OK looking.

It's practically a race car, I don't think the looks are a big deal

But a good looking race car is even better than just a race car.

i would not define the 993 GT2 "good looking" but at least it had a purpose to be like that.
imo, the best goo loking GT2 was the 996, which never raced...
