Launched in 2017 as the ultimate ‘purists’ 911, the 991 R took the automotive world by storm.
Powered by the storming 4.0-litre naturally aspirated GT3 RS engine, and mated to a brand new manual gearbox, it delivers a scintillating driving experience and is one of the most sought after Porsches available.
When the discerning owner of this particular 911 R decided to further enhance the driving experience, he headed to our friends at JZM Porsche and opted for the full GT3 RS 991 Akrapovic Evolution Linesystem.
Like all Akrapovic Porsche systems, this sublimely crafted exhaust is manufactured from ultra-lightweight titanium, which saves a precious 14.1kgs – important with a rear engine car. It includes specially developed exhaust manifolds which incorporate 100-cpsi catalytic converters and side mufflers – all developed to maximise both power and torque.
As well as delivering a scintilating soundtrack, the Akrapovic system offers significant performance gains of +13.3hp and +27.3Nm. With integrated exhaust valves, the sound can be modulated from high-revving ‘maximum attack’ mode, to a more sedate timbre for everyday driving.
Like all Akrapovic exhaust systems, the GT3 RS setup has been engineered to perfection and has been designed as a straight swap for the OEM exhaust. JZM’s highly experienced technicians had the job done in a few hours, which in this case, included an ECU re-flash (mandatory with the full system on the GT3 RS engine).
The Akrapovic Evolution Line system has taken the 911 R’s already highly engaging sound and transformed it into something truly spellbinding. The experts at JZM Porsche can supply and install the full range of Akrapovic exhaust systems.
They also offer a hand-picked selection of the finest pre-owned Porsches available anywhere in the world, as well as specialist maintenance and storage for discerning Porsche owners. Click HERE to discover more.
