700 hp, that is what the new 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS puts down on the pavement. And while this makes it the most powerful street-legal 911 ever, it doesn’t matter. What does matter is how the 911 GT2 RS puts all that power down, and get your adrenaline levels up in the meantime!

911 GT2 RS
It all starts with the power plant of this Porsche. The 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine, a modified version of the one we can find in the 911 Turbo S, gives you not only 700 hp (80(!) more than the 2011 911 GT2 RS, but also 553 lb-ft of torque. Where most supercars bring such power to all four wheels these days, the 911 GT2 RS is rear-wheel drive, with rear axle steering to optimize cornering performance.

With a full tank of gas the 911 GT2 RS only brings 3.241 pounds to the scale, but for those who find this still too much is there the optional Weissach package, which saves another 40 pounds. While this may not sound like much, it does include magnesium wheels, increasing the handling characteristics of this 911 even more. Another reason to get it is the carbon fiber elements it adds, saving weight while enhancing the looks of the car at the same time.

As a top performer, with an aggressive exterior design, the cockpit embodies this same spirit. Full bucket seats with carbon fiber reinforced backrests not only look great, but also offer support where needed, and when needed! It is all part of making this car as driver oriented, as well as fun to drive, as possible. For this owners will also able to enjoy a customized GT seven-speed double-clutch Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes and a stability management system which is calibrated especially for the passionate driving the 911 GT2 RS is meant to.

The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS has an MSRP of $293.200,-, which gives you a car that is not only among the fastest on the road but also one of the most engaging and fun to drive. The optional Weissach package adds $31,000,- to the MSRP.
