KAEGE Proposes A 60kg Weight Loss And 20HP Muscle Gain For 997 GT3

So, how do you improve an already finely tuned sports car like the Porsche 997 GT3? Well, you could start with a…997 GT3 RS, but if you’re keen on keeping your ride, KAEGE has some tricks up its sleeve.

The German tuning outfit has prepared a workout program for the 997-generation 911 GT3 that focuses on losing weight and gaining some power.

More specifically, KAEGE removes about 60kg (132 lbs) from the GT3 through a series of measures including, but not limited to, the fitment of lighter 19-inch wheels in Michelin Pilot Cup2 tires (-13.5kg or 30 lbs), sports exhaust system (-7kg or 15 lbs), Sachs sports clutch, plastic rear window, removal of navigation system and other interior amenities.

It then adds 23PS (23hp) to the GT3’s 3.6-liter boxer unit via the exhaust and electronics pushing total output to 438PS (432hp).

Completing their offer is a new set of lightweight seats dressed in a retro-checkered fabric with matching travel and helmet bags, painted interior trims and a roll cage.
