For more than 35 years, Wagner Motorsport from Kolbermoor near Rosenheim has been one of the top addresses when it comes to Porsche vehicles. The Bavarians have specialized in the repair and optimization of Porsche sports cars of all years. Owner Hans Wagner and his son Manuel pay particular attention to chassis installation and tuning.
"For us, only BILSTEIN comes into question!"
The company has been an official BILSTEIN suspension expert since 2013. But even before that, the Porsche specialists relied exclusively on chassis from BILSTEIN. “It was always clear to us that BILSTEIN was the only option for us. Because BILSTEIN is the suspension manufacturer that, in our opinion, works best on Porsche vehicles,” says Manuel Wagner with conviction.
And if customers sometimes want to have a competitor's chassis installed? "In these cases, we can usually convince our customers of our preferred brand," smiles Manuel Wagner. So there is little room for discussion - and the current project conversion by Wagner Motorsport makes no difference. As a demonstration vehicle and to show customers what is possible, the Wagner Motorsport team converted a 993 Porsche 1995 into a racetrack-ready RSR.
To do this, the old 3,8 was completely dismantled down to the body shell. A 993-liter six-cylinder boxer engine found its way into the rear of the 330. Thanks to the flat-slide intake system, a Fuchs stainless steel racing exhaust system and optimized engine control, the classic air-cooled unit mobilizes an appropriate XNUMX hp. As of now – because the team is already working on even more engine power.
Of course, a BILSTEIN suspension was also installed. In accordance with its purpose, Wagner Motorsport installed a custom-made BILSTEIN MDS 2-way racing suspension in cooperation with the BILSTEIN Service Center NTP in Bozen/Italy. This ensures maximum performance in the green painted bolide and can be adjusted in ten clearly tactile clicks in rebound and compression. Exactly the right thing for use on the race track. Speaking of which: the Porsche completed its first test drive in proper style on the Salzburgring. "The package worked extremely well, especially the chassis," says Manuel Wagner happily.
It doesn't take much imagination to imagine that this Porsche 911 RSR will take customers' hearts by storm - and arouse interest in similarly ambitious projects. However, Manuel Wagner is relaxed about a possible rush of customers: the Bavarians recently expanded their workshop by a whopping 225 square meters.
