Ohio-based tuner offers much more bang for same amount of buck for its Switzer GT2 R911S. A R911S Carbon edition will also be available with a set of carbon fiber parts that lighten the car and drop its center of gravity.

Switzer Performance already has a new, pumped up version of the Porsche 911 GT2.

The details are intriguing to say the least, it gets dialed up significantly to 911 hp (679 kW) - a full 291hp more than the recently revealed GT2 RS. That number is not a coincidence. After all, it is an iteration of the Porsche 911.

The Switzer GT2 R911S starts with the Ohio-based tuner's P800 GT2 package and then works onward from there. With the use of Switzer's in-house massive intercoolers and a vague reference to racing fuel, Switzer says there are now 911 ponies on tap for their R911S.

For the suspension the tuner adds "Switzer-specific titanium inverted-front-strut and a remote-reservoir suspension engineered by the track experts at JRZ." The R911S will also feature "hand-selected spring and damping rates."

A R911S Carbon edition will also be available with a set of carbon fiber parts that lighten the car and drop its center of gravity.

Switzer's prices for the car are, in fact, lower than Porsche's own MSRP for the 620hp 911 GT2 RS. The Switzer GT2 R911S can be had for $199,900 (€158,692), while the R911S Carbon comes in at $239,900 (€190,447).

Porsche's new GT2 RS will sell for $245,000 (€193,000) in the U.S. market.
