The Porsche community can be a cut-throat clique. There are many purists that believe that all cars that carry the Porsche crest should remain factory-stock in perpetuity.
There are those, however, that rail against that adage and build some of the coolest cars around, one being Gunther Werks. And after a stunning debut at this year’s Quail, A Motorsport Gathering, Gunther Werks has finally unveiled some hard specs for its resto-mod Porsche 993, the 400R. Hint; it’s going to be fast as hell.
The heavily altered 993-generation Porsche 911 is powered by a Rothsport Racing 4.0-liter flat-six engine that generates 431 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque, and will scream to an eye-watering 7,800 rpm redline.
