Guntherwerks 400R Is A Wide-Body Porsche 993 With GT3 RS Levels Of Performance

Remember the Guntherwerks 400R? Well, even if you don’t, it’s time to find out if this Porsche 993 restomod drives as good as it looks.

Matt Farah had a go in the 993-based Guntherwerks 400R, giving us the opportunity to learn more about this wide-bodied beauty that wants to make an impression in the Porsche world, in much the same way Singer Vehicle Design does with their 964-based works of art.

Guntherwerks trimmed all of the 993’s fat, opting for a full carbon-fiber bodywork, minus the door skins, while the cabin was stripped and redone in Alcantara, lightweight fabrics and leather. Not a single surface was left untouched, with the seats now being carbon fiber buckets and the driver’s gauges featuring machined bezels.

The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter engine in the 400R is based on the 3.6-liter unit originally found in the 993 Carrera and is tuned by Rothsport Racing to produce up to 430hp. With the car now weighing just 2,660lbs (1,206kg) wet, the power-to-weight ratio beats that of the current 991 GT3 RS.

Combine this with a properly sorted chassis that brings the best out of the 993, and what you have is probably one of the best 911 restomods out there.
