The New 992 GT3RS: Now Fully Protected

We had the privilege of welcoming a remarkable machine into our shop: the new Porsche 992 GT3RS. This car isn’t just any sports car; it’s a beacon of engineering prowess and design sophistication. Let’s dive into what makes the 992 GT3RS a standout and how we ensured it received the best protection possible here at SpeedEFX.


The Evolution of the 992 GT3RS

The latest iteration of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the 992 model, pushes the boundaries of what’s possible with road-legal track cars. Compared to its predecessors, the 992 GT3RS has taken significant strides in performance and aerodynamics.

One of the most notable advancements is the inclusion of a Drag Reduction System (DRS) on the rear wing—a feature more commonly seen in Formula 1 cars. This system allows the driver to reduce drag on straightaways, improving top speed and acceleration, then revert to maximum downforce for enhanced stability and cornering performance in the bends. The car’s 4.0-liter flat-six engine screams with up to 500 horsepower, making it not just a visual spectacle but a powerhouse on both track and street.

Protecting a Masterpiece: XPEL Ultimate Plus PPF

Understanding the caliber of this vehicle, the owner opted for a full bumper-to-bumper wrap using XPEL Ultimate Plus Paint Protection Film (PPF). This film is specifically engineered to protect against road debris, scratches, and the elements, which is crucial for maintaining the GT3RS’s pristine condition, especially given its track capabilities and street usage.

Benefits of XPEL Ultimate Plus PPF include:

  • Self-Healing Properties: The film’s surface is designed to heal over time, eliminating swirl marks and light scratches through heat exposure from sunlight or the engine.
  • Stain Resistance: Protects against stains and acidic contaminants, keeping the paint looking fresh and vibrant.
  • UV Protection: Offers UV protection to prevent the paint from fading, ensuring the car’s color remains as vivid as the day it was painted.

Installation Process: Installing PPF on a car like the 992 GT3RS requires precision. Our technicians meticulously applied the film, ensuring every inch of the vehicle’s complex curves and edges were covered seamlessly. This process involves custom-cutting the film to fit each panel perfectly, then applying it in a clean, controlled environment to prevent any bubbles or imperfections.

Enhancing Privacy and Protection: XPEL Ceramic Window Tint

In addition to the PPF, we installed XPEL Ceramic Window Tint to all the car’s windows. This tint not only enhances privacy for the driver but also plays a crucial role in protecting the interior. The ceramic technology used in XPEL’s window tint offers superior UV protection, reducing the risk of fading and aging interiors—essential for preserving the 992 GT3RS’s cabin, which is just as meticulously designed as its exterior.

The Finished Product

After the PPF and window tint applications, the Porsche 992 GT3RS was ready to hit the road with its new protective armor. The owner left our shop with peace of mind, knowing their prized possession was shielded against the elements and the rigors of regular driving.

At SpeedEFX, we treat every vehicle with the care and respect it deserves, ensuring that each one, no matter how fast or how rare, leaves in peak condition, ready to face the world’s roads and racetracks.
