The much-loved Porsche 911 993 is widely known as the most-desirable of almost any 911 ever made. But for purists, the all-wheel-drive of the Turbo and Turbo S is not thrilling enough. Additionally, AWD cars are in different racing classes almost by default.
There was no GT2 version of this generation 911 with the turbo engine and rear-drive. Step in, McChip-DKR.
The power-freeing ECU geniuses at McChip really stretch their wings with this build. Literally!
The 993 GT2 Mc600 that results from dropping in a twin-turbo engine requires far more grip than available on the OEM rubber setup. So the custom-fabricated fender flares are needed to allow a huge patch of rubber in back and up front.
Inside, a hardcore racing upfit tossed just about everything that will not make the Mc600 faster around a circuit or on a long runway.
The results speak for themselves, with sheer speed and top-end pace about 140-mph that will leave any other 993 on the planet gasping for air.

Just like the successor of the 964, the Porsche 993 is the latest model of the legendary Zuffenhausen‘s classical 911 equipped with boxer engine and air cooling system. Mcchip-dkr company from the North Rhine-Westphalian Mechernich decided to rebuild a Porsche 993 GT2 in the truest sense of the word for one of the closest customers of the house in the winter season, which is known to be the time of the preparation for the next racing season, although the practice of mcchip-dkr house is rather contradictive. This is evidenced by their banners which say software and performance upgrades are possible “only” for modern cars. But in the “old vehicle” there was also a good dose of modernity included.
Before assembly of the engine, the vehicle was completely gutted and brought the newest state of technology. The Porsche 993 GT2 Turbo 3.6 Widebody MC600, as it is now called, now proudly features one 3.6-liter bi-turbo engine with a new engine block and rebuilt K26 turbochargers, designed by one of our partner companies – PÜTZ Motorsport. The limited-slip differential comes from DREXLER company in Salzweg. 604 hp is the start line for usual professional software and maximum torque reaches up to 847 Nm. The exhaust system including sport catalysts for the appropriate “Communicating with the environment” is produced by CARGRAPHIC company, which is contributed by Landau. From the same place also come RS rims with the following dimensions 10×18 inches on the front and, correspondingly, 13×18 inches on the rear axle. Likewise, there is also a KW racing suspension Competition Variant 3 installed.
In the interior of the Porsche besides the safety cage there are also pole position bucket seats by Recaro. Door- and other interior panels are made of carbon. The STACK display is equipped with data recording and video system. And finally, we see the shift-throw reduction to the shifter and – just in case – fire extinguisher has been mentioned.
Actually, it is unnecessary to point out that for the reconstruction of the classics only the latest technology and only high-performance components are used, so now mcchip-dkr software tuning stuck together with all their know-how in the 993, which, of course, with a new painting in addition, returns to the roads. So for over 800 hours of work and the construction cost is € 200,000.
