Porsche Of The Day: Gunther Werks Project Tornado

Gunther Werks, the company that remasters the Porsche air-cooled 993 introduced the Project Tornado last year. It is based on a Porsche 993 ‘GT2 RS’ with a 700hp twin-turbo flat six and manual transmission.

Gunther Werks enhances the analog driving experience offered by the original car, while at the same time retaining the car’s iconic attributes. Each commission features a bespoke interior and exterior combination that is unique to every car remastered by Gunther Werks.

Project Tornado features a Rothsport Racing built 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine. Using a racing-derived flat fan and liquid charged cooling, the engine is controlled by a sophisticated Motec engine management system, its output being an astonishing 600hp in standard form, with track mode seeing that output increase to 700hp. Power is transferred to a 6-speed manual transmission with rear wheel drive.
