Relying on the same 3.8-liter flat-six as the 911 Turbo S, the GT2 RS enjoys a big power boost courtesy of larger twin turbochargers and an added cooling system that sprays water on the intercoolers, optimizing power output under extreme conditions. Those upgrades help the engine push up to 700 hp and 553 lb-ft out to the rear wheels by way of a customized GT seven-speed PDK transmission.
Porsche hasn’t specified when it will actually perform the attempt, so we’ll have to patiently wait to find out how Stuttgart’s fastest and most powerful street-legal 911 ever made fares around the demanding Nordschleife. Chances are the run will be conducted with a GT2 RS equipped with the optional Weissach package since that shaves off some weight as a result of installing magnesium wheels and even more carbon fiber.
The 911 GT2 RS also comes with the optional Weissach Package which reduces the weight of the car by 18kg. The package includes magnesium wheels and carbon fibre elements such as roof and anti-roll bars.
Speaking of which, the 911 GT2 RS can go from 0-100 Km/hr in 2.8 seconds, notching up a top speed of 340Km/hr. With the ongoing confusion around the GST in the Indian market, Porsche has decided to play the wait and watch game, before putting a price tag to the 911 GT2 RS, and rightly so.
