Default 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS revealed

2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS revealed at “Forza 7” launch

Porsche on Sunday used the launch of the “Forza Motorsport 7” video game to briefly show its new 911 GT2 RS. The launch took place at an Xbox preview showing for E3 which runs from June 13-15 in Los Angeles.

The GT2 RS, the car makes its formal debut at September’s 2017 Frankfurt auto show and should be on sale late this year or early next. It will arrive as a 2018 model.

No new details were divulged at the reveal, though we already know a few things. The engine is an uprated version of the 911 Turbo’s 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-6. Mods specific to the GT2 RS’s mill are said to include bigger turbos, tougher internals, a lightweight titanium exhaust system, and a water-injection system just like the one fitted to the BMW M4 GTS. The result should be a peak output exceeding 650 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. Oh, and it also sounds brutal.

The rear-mounted engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission—previous GT2s came exclusively with manual transmissions—and drive is still to the rear wheels only. Thanks to a launch control system, 0-60 mph times should come in below 3.0 seconds. Meanwhile, the top speed should be in excess of 211 mph.
It is being expected that the Porsche 911 GT2 RS will set a sub-7 minute time at the Nurburgring!

Looks like the Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the new king of the ring! 6:47.3 seconds!!!

It seems like the perfect revenge for Lamborghini which beat the 918 by 5 seconds using the Huracan Performante! Porsche shaved off another 5 seconds from the Lambo with the GT2 RS!!!

With 6:57 around the ring, the Porsche 918 suddenly feels old!!!

As they say, God bless competition!
