The new 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the fastest and most powerful street-legal 911 model ever created by Porsche and celebrated its launch last month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
At the core of this high-performance sports car is a 700-horsepower twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine. Faster and lighter, the two-seater sports car accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds and can reach a top speed on the track of 211 miles per hour and delivers 553 lb.-ft. of torque, an increase of 37 lb.-ft. compared to the previous 911 GT2 RS.
To help increase performance further, Porsche installed larger turbochargers to force a larger volume of air into the combustion chambers. A new additional cooling system delivers optimum cooling at peak loads by spraying water on the intercoolers when the intake air temperature reaches a determined threshold which reduces the inlet temperature under boost and allows for optimum power output.
The customized GT seven-speed double-clutch Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission enables maximum efficiency with uninterrupted torque transfer. Add the specially developed lightweight titanium exhaust system, which is about 15 pounds lighter than the system used in the 911 Turbo and delivers a memorable emotional sound.
Take your position inside the 911 GT2 RS and you will see the red Alcantara®, black leather, and carbon fiber trim pieces dominate. Full Bucket Seats with carbon fiber reinforced backrests offer a high level of comfort and lateral support enabling the driver to experience driving dynamics of this high-performance sports car as they grip the GT2 RS Sport steering wheel that come with shift paddles. Audio, navigation, and communication are as usual controlled by the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system.
