The new 911 GT2 RS is simply the most powerful 911 ever built by Porsche – with the performance level of a super sports car.
Its design combines the aerodynamic requirements of optimum downforce and maximum air supply. Its consistent lightweight construction makes it a pure athlete. Its racing chassis with excellent cornering stability gives the new 911 GT2 RS those crucial additional seconds. And its 3.8-litre, six-cylinder, twin-turbo engine producing 515 kW (700 hp) lends it sufficient authority to lead the field.
Anyone can be unyielding. But whether they also make an impact depends on one crucial feature: charisma. The ability to lead and be ahead. The performance data of the new 911 GT2 RS show that many will follow in its wake – presumably because they cannot overtake it.
The source of its natural authority: the six-cylinder, twin-turbo boxer engine at the rear, four-valve technology, variable turbine geometry (VTG) with large turbochargers and newly designed charged air system, direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus. And transmission directly above the rear axle.
With a displacement of 3,800 cm³, the engine produces an impressive 515 kW (700 hp) at an rpm of 7,000. Maximum rpm is 7,200, and the maximum torque of 750 Nm is available from just 2,500 rpm. Sustainably unyielding – with sustainable performance.
A quick look at the speedometer. It goes up to 400 km/h. A figure that will bring tears of joy to the eyes of every sports car fan. And also sets the tone for the maximum speed: 340 km/h Vmax. How does the new 911 GT2 RS achieve this? Quickly, of course. It ticks the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h box after just 2.8 seconds. It reaches the 200-km/h mark after only 8.3 seconds. And after 22.1 seconds, the 300-km/h mark is water under the bridge.
Those who make clear statements also expect clarity. They always want to – and must – be in charge. This is especially true of the driver, which means having information available within seconds, precise ergonomics and high-quality purity when it comes to materials. Everything then, except questions.In manual PDK mode, the digital gear and upshift indicators support an efficient, sporty driving style. And a multifunction display shows your progress, indicating boost pressure and engine power applied, as well as longitudinal and transverse acceleration (g-force). The instrument cluster with a 4.6-inch colour display constantly supplies you with data from the on-board computer. You can also access the Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM) data, as well as the stopwatch of the optional Chrono Package. It also provides information about communication and audio settings and displays the navigation system map.
