German tuner KAEGE is introducing an aftermarket program tailored to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997 generation).

The 911 GT3 RS regardless of generation has massive appeal, but from time to time tuners try to prove there’s room for improvement. The latest example comes from KAEGE which is working on a 997 model that so far has received an M+M muffler system bumping output by 8 horsepower (6 kilowatts) and shaving off 15 pounds (7 kilograms). In addition, a custom air box made from carbon fiber adds a further 7 hp (5 kW) and there’s also a new electrical power steering pump.

Custom air filters and a Sachs sports clutch are part of the extensive package which among others also includes a short-shifter for the gearbox. The bespoke 19-inch BBS wheels reduce unsprung mass by 20 lbs (9 kg) and come wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. KAEGE has also fitted a custom KW suspension kit made from aluminum while the lithium-ion battery pack eliminates 33 lbs (15 kg). Other miscellaneous weight-saving measures have further reduced the weight of the 997 GT3 RS by 44 lbs (20 kg).

On the inside we notice a retro-flavored checkered fabric upholstery and the tuner also painted the rollover bar along with some of the pieces in the same color as the body. The steering wheel comes from a GT3 RS 4.0 and there are also some changes in the trunk.

We saved the best for last as KAEGE is currently working on the car to squeeze in a 4.3-liter engine pushing out 520 hp (388 kW).
