One word: epic.
Porsche has surprisingly just revealed its all-new 911 GT2 RS at the 2017 Xbox E3 conference, months ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show. Fans attending the E3 conference were equally surprised by Porsche’s move. We’ve seen plenty of spy shots of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS testing on both public roads and the track, but it was always camouflaged. Not anymore. As expected, this 911 GT2 RS is low, wide and insanely aggressive looking, thanks to plenty of carbon fiber aero components and motorsport-derived technologies.
Compared to the GT3 RS, there are definite visual similarities, specifically the large rear wings. In the GT2 RS’s case, that rear wing is even larger. There’s also a restyled front end. Power will come from a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six featuring water-injection. It’s based on the 991.2 generation 911 Turbo S engine but with obvious modifications. Total output, which has yet to be confirmed, is rumored to be around 641 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. Hot damn. All of that power is sent to the rear wheels through the PDK gearbox only (sorry manual fans). Total weight is said to be just a hair under 3,300 pounds and 0-60 will happen in less than three seconds. We’re expecting official photos anytime and bring them to you the moment they arrive.
